Gay Rights in Afghanistan a Priority?


When people say Afghanistan has more pressing issues to worry about LGBTQ rights, the subtext in their message is, “I don’t care. Not my problem. According to Islam, gays are going to hell anyways.” Beware of those who dismiss and dodge the subject of gay rights as they are just callous people have no conception of civil rights, no inkling about Aristotelian ethics, and no atom of spirituality in their soul. The enlightened class must educate the homophobic and ignorant masses that the role and responsibility of public servants and citizenry in a democratic state is to continuously strive for an inclusive regime that integrates all people including those whose sexual orientation you may despise.
