Two Tunisian men to be imprisoned for 8 months for ‘looking gay’

 

Two men have been sent to prison in Tunisia because they were perceived to be gay.

 

The men, Achref, 20 and Sabri, 21, were sentenced on Friday to eight months in prison.

 

This comes after they were arrested on 7 December in the city of Sousse.

 

According to a French newspaper, the men were told by the police officer that he suspected they were gay, calling gay people a “curse” on the country.

 

Achref said the men were slapped around and made to sign a written confession of the allegations.

 

He also says they were anally probed.

 

Despite a result of “negative” from the test, the practice of which is widely discredited, a judge still sentenced the men.

 

The written statement claimed that the men had been engaged in “sodomy” in the street.

 

Despite the guilty verdict, the ruling still needs to be confirmed next month, and the men are currently on bail.

Gay rights activist claims he was raped by an American man in

 

A gay rights activist, who moved to France to escape persecution, claims he was raped by an American man in Marseille who said ‘you French people hate Trump‘.

 

The 35-year-old says he was drugged at a bar on Friday by two men who were American and English, who then took him to a hotel room.

 

The LGBT activist claims the American said: ‘You French people…you hate Trump. And you listen to black and Arabic music.’

 

He told a news website his alleged attackers beat him and tied his wrists and ankles with ripped up bedsheets.

 

He said he escaped on Sunday morning when he called for help from policemen outside.

 

His alleged attackers are being held in prison.

 

It is believed that they both worked for the Foreign Legion.

Texas Democrat proposes ‘satirical’ bill penalizing men for masturbation

 

A Texas state representative fed up with anti-abortion policies has introduced a “satirical” bill that would penalize men for “unregulated masturbatory emissions.”

 

House Bill 4260, introduced Friday by Democratic state Rep. Jessica Farrar, would penalize men $100 for masturbating.

 

The money collected from “unregulated masturbatory emissions” would benefit children in the care of the Department of Family and Protective Services, according to the bill.

 

The legislation would also ensure a doctor’s right to invoke their “personal, moralistic, or religious beliefs” in refusing to perform an elective vasectomy or prescribe Viagra.

 

Ms. Farrar said her “satirical” bill, titled the Man’s Right to Know Act, is meant to make a point about women’s health care.
