Gay People in Iran are being forced to undergo Gender Reassignment Surgery for This Despicable Reason

Iran has been accused of forcing hordes of gay people to have gender reassignment surgery in an attempt to rid the country of homosexuality.

 

While the Islamic Republic legalized being transgender in 1987, homosexuality is still illegal in Iran and LGB people are often subjected to horrific public executions if their sexuality becomes known.

According to British news outlet, The Sun, LGBT activists have now stated that some of the ‘trans surgeries’ that occur are part of a sinister programme designed to eradicate queer people.

Shadi Amin, an Iranian-born activist, told The Sun that this homophobic Iranian regime is controlled by religious extremists who view being gay as an “illness”. They believe that the only way it can be cured is by changing gender.

“The government believes that if you are a gay man, your soul is that of a woman and you should change your body,” Amin said. “We think this is a way to fight the existence of homosexual people because you change their body and you solve the problem. The regime gives gay people two choices – to be arrested as a homosexual and risk punishment or even execution, or change your body.”

Government data shows that around 4000 gender reassignment surgeries are performed in Iran each year. Amin, however, claims that those numbers are actually much higher in reality.

“They are trying to cleanse the country of homosexuals,” she added. “They would rather carry out mass surgeries than executions because they know the world is watching them.”

“After forcibly getting individuals operated on, the government turns a blind eye to them,” said Agrima Tikader, writing for the International Business Times. “Amin pointed out that most transgender people lost support from their families [after having surgery]. Without the prospect of employment, transgender people turn to prostitution. The state offers very little protection to transgender people, and they are often subject to discrimination and physical violence.”

    To think that the “solution” is worse than punishment for being LGB is disturbing.

    I always knew these guys were a little off. Anything to try to NORMALIZE their very awkward desires.

    I will bet this realignment shii is only for the men. I’ll bet they do not even acknowledge the existences of lesbians and as being anything worthy of attention being women. This is so maddening
