The Manly Men of Afghanistan

What else can one expect from the descendants of Alexander's armies? The Pashtuns seem to have invented the whole concept of "don't ask, don't tell". Banning kite-flying or white socks is one thing, but if the Taliban ever tried to crack down on some of the baser urges in Afghan society, they'd face a real uprising.

this is a widespread habit among the 'brothas' of the ummah. woman for procreation, boys for recreation. a lot of the love-songs in arab/mohammedan lore are written to boys.

i am told that in malabar, mohammedan men flaunt their 'kuttans' (boy-chicks) -- and i hasten to emphasize that a 'kuttan' is different from a 'kingini-kuttan' -- whom they hang out with. for instance, a mohammedan guy may come to a small tea-shop with a boy, and order "a tea for me, and a banana fry for the kuttan". :-) btw, 'kuttan' is the name used for boy-chicks in jails too.

yes, greeks are famous for their same-sex affairs, too. spartans, for instance, much preferred their fellow-soldiers to their wives. which, incidentally, is why spartans died out :-)

oh, you arch person, san. an "uprising", eh? pun intended?

Well, maybe this is where their misogynism comes from - gender rivalry.

A boy for molestation purposes is called an "Ashna" in Afghanistan.

There is a saying among jihadis:

For children, with a woman;
For pleasure, with a man;
But by choice, with a goat.
