‘I am a Lesbian and I am a Muslim’
Asian Image ^ | Tuesday 4th March 2014

Posted on 03/08/2014 2:12:28 PM PST by nickcarraway

An Asian lesbian has spoken of her experiences about hiding her sexuality from her family.

“I know this sounds like a complete paradox. But I am a lesbian. And I am a Muslim. A practising Muslim,” she says.

Jay, as she wanted to be referred to said she rarely talks of her feelings to anyone and growing-up she felt ostracised. But at university she was able to be a little more open about her sexuality.

“I can’t talk about this to anyone apart from my close friends. I would never dare to admit this to my family.

“At school, all the Asian girls had secret boyfriends, and would sneak around. I knew from an early age that I was different as I was attracted to girls.

“My parents were always worried about finding me with a boyfriend. That was considered the ultimate ‘bezti”.

“I am still at university, and here I am able to explore my sexuality more freely. And by that, I don’t mean physically. I have joined the LGBT society and have met so many like minded people.”

Traditionally homosexual acts in most Muslim countries are a punishable crime and a sin. Despite this, same-sex sexual intercourse is legal in five Muslim-majority nations.

Home life for Jay is completely different though and she says she would not dream of letting her family know about her sexuality.

Asian society is judgemental. My family would disown me if they found out. Or they would force me into an arranged marriage in Pakistan.

“The irony is, my dad drinks at home. He would never be seen in public drinking. I have heard my mum arguing with him late at night about the fact that he watches adult channels.

“But when the issue of gay people comes up, well, let’s just say acceptance is a word that is simply not used in our community. My parents, like many others, think it is a sin. And that the only cure for it is marriage.”

Despite these concerns she feels that there are others in her community who hide their true feelings for fear of retaliation.

“Recently, a family friend discovered their son was gay. Well, they found gay porn on his phone.

“They concluded that he had been possessed by a jinn. That was their only explanation.

“They took him to this pir who performed an exorcism on him.

“My only hope of a normal life is if I move out of home once I graduate, assuming I can find a decent job.

“I am a Lesbian, I was born that way. But at the same time, I pray five times a day. I fast in Ramadan. I enjoy attending Islamic talks at uni.”

Jay though has no reservations about her life despite the concerns some Muslims might have.

“Islam is a peaceful religion. Our prophet (pbuh) never excluded anyone from participating in the religious life of the mosque.

“All I want is for my family to accept me the way I am so I can stop living this lie.”

She should come out so American gays can see how peaceful and loving Islam is compared to that mean and judgemental Christianity.

I’m not sure how to identify her, woman doesn’t seem right.

This article is completely meaningless. It says nothing factual, except to talk about an unnamed lesbian’s supposed troubles in an unnamed Muslim society. Perhaps such people may exist, but this article can considered fiction.

Sounds like an honor killing waiting to happen.

Either that or a forced marriage and much beating.

She says “islam is a peaceful religion”. Right there she proves that she is mentally deranged and delusional. When her moozlum cohorts find she is a lesbo, they will probably give her an “exorcism” by stoning her to death. I guess that would leave her “at peace”.

Considering that ol’ mohammed was a pedophile (another facet of homosexuality), a lesbian muzzie is par for the course. Since islam is, in fact, the worship of satan, it’s not one whit surprising that God’s Word concerning deviancy is ignored by those adhering to that cult of death.

She should complete her statement:

“Traditionally homosexual acts in most Muslim countries are a punishable crime...”

Where is the media outcry? Russia was attacked hysterically for declining to assign reading “Heather Has Two Mommies” to eight year olds in school, yet it’s perfectly legal to be gay there.

Christians in America are now criminals if they decline to photograph a gay wedding. But the same people who want persecute Christians would be terrified to utter a word against Muslims.

If she lived in Iran or Saudi Arabia she would keep her mouth shut, lose her clitoris and bear nine children.

Now don't get me wrong, I don't support the institutionalization of homo stuff.

But I damn sure don't support the punishment of them either. There are limits to the righteousness man should assume.

Punishment of homosexuality is outside the realm of reason.

It's better we should appeal to their conscience and soul...and love them.

Just as we love ourselves.

I know someone who is a Muslim and a lesbian. She is about fifty, cute without being pretty. She is devoted to her elderly parents. She works very hard, does quite well at her highly responsible and demanding job, lives alone, and does not “date” or have relationships with women. Sweet woman.

She says so. Her social life consists of being with her family or going out in a group of people (all straight) who have a similar sports or cultural interest, and she doesn’t date women.
