Men arrested in Egypt for taking part in a same-sex wedding are declared not gay after ‘testing negative for homosexuality’

Men arrested in Egypt for taking part in a same-sex wedding are declared not gay after ‘testing negative for homosexuality’

Is this really a THING? I have no idea how this test is even POSSIBLE…and I highly doubt it is science-based at all. It seems to be, according to the article, some sort of invasive anal examination. This whole situation is absolutely ridiculous – the government should have no say so in the private sex lives of its citizens.

From the article:

The video shows one man being given a ring, followed by shouts of delight from those watching.

According to one report, the video’s title was misleading, because what actually happened was that the man was given a silver ring as a birthday present.

However, at the end the camera does linger briefly on a cake decorated with two men standing side by side.

The men were not arrested on suspicion of homosexuality, because being gay is not illegal in Egypt. However, ‘debauchery’ is against the law, and it was for this that the men were detained on Saturday.

Give me a break. I so don’t care what folks do in their own homes. I may not agree with everything, but I believe in free will. Humans can choose, and Government stays out. The. End.
