Why the fuck is the World Cup being held in a country the penalizes homosexuality?

by Anonymousreply 3April 3, 2022 4:01 AM

Because FIFA is corrupt and they were all bought off.

Wait, which one? The actual rainbow flag or the one that looks like a Nascar vehicle, because the latter is an abomination unto everyone with eyeballs.

The mother of all media spin. Homosexuality is jail time and a possible death sentence in Qatar. Doesn't bother FIFA, the football clubs participating in the Mundial in Qatar or the millions of fans who will travel to Qatar to view the matches.

R10 I love how all these stupid far left gays want to criticize Israel over those poor unfortunate Palestinians. I want you to try an experiment. Go to Gaza or the West Bank and walk down the street holding hands with your boyfriend and see what happens. Then after you finish getting your skull bashed in we can talk about Israel.

This set to be driest (pun intended ) World Cup ever with alcohol sales and consumption severely restricted and very expensive too. Unlike Dubai that actually made to attract mass tourism Doha is not . People will come to watch football then go back to their hotel and fly home with very little things to do there.

Its also will be the gayest as Qatari population is more than 3/4 male thanks to their huge expat/slave workers population. With football fans being overwhelmingly male Doha will have more dicks per capita than anywhere on earth during the tournament.

They left out the part about Qatar wanting to enact a law banning homosexuals from entering Qatar. It was put on hold, fearing that it would jeopardize Qatar getting the Mundial.

Their country, their rules. You don't have to go. FIFA didn't have to choose them but they did.

The rest of the world is increasingly aware of neocolonialism. They're not buying it; they're not becoming Western. They have indigenous values and traditions and are keeping them.

This is where I reveal one of my biggest shards of paranoia. Sub text: my brother in law and my sister flew Emirates to Europe and connected in Dubai. Seattle - Dubai - Europe. WTF? After reading the story about the Scottish guy who was jailed for touching another man, my biggest aviation fear is that somehow my aircraft gets diverted to DXB. You'll know if it does because there will be a news story about the passenger who refused to get off the plane unless a representative of the American Embassy escorted him off and quarantined him until the flight continued.

I will not set footie in Dubai!

It sounds like a very boring place to have the World Cup. It's sad, because the players really didn't have a choice in it, did they? What about the closeted ones who now feel more closeted due to this shit? It's already an extremely homophobic sport.

R31 Islam is neither "indigenous" nor a "tradition" in Qatar. Since you obviously find homo-murder in Islam/Qatar acceptable, one has to wonder why you are posting on a gay board?

I’m never going to understand homophobia. The only difference I see between homosex and the one that doesn’t get you killed by bigots is that no babies result from a friendly little fuck with somebody who’s built along the same lines as you are yourself, and who has an innate, fundamental understanding of you that only a same-sex person can have. Which makes it perfect to me. How do people go batshit insane over that??

And why drag their gods into it? Take one look at the natural variety in the animal kingdom and you just KNOW God’s knickers are never twisted over how people fuck. God arranged for some really weird shit to go on. Worms turning into butterflies? Male seahorses? God is totally cool with same-sex sex. I am positive of it. And I don’t even believe in the all-powerful big white dude!

R45 I would assume you didn't grow up religious at all. Religion has nothing to do with rational, unfortunately. There is nothing rational about it. Catholicism still celebrates a 14 yo girl who got knocked up by God without even attempting to explain it any other way than that.

r22 European clubs and footballers went full rainbow when confronting Hungary a supposedly "homophobic:" country despite homosexuality there is legal , sexual orientation is a protected class and state recognition of same-sex partnerships.

Meanwhile in Qatar homosexuality is a criminal offense and death penalty for it still in the books. We will see how these rainbow "allies" spin this.
