People, raise your voices. Create a huge group. As a western law student, we learn that power come from people. Machiavelli says in his book, the Prince, that religion shall be used to create love and fear in his population. Sure, everybody has the right to have your own religion, but this should be a choice, not imposed by Sharia law. Fight for human rights, doesn't matter what is your religion or how conservative your country is. You, together, will make a difference. You all could interact in here, then, add a larger number of people, go to the streets, make a noise. Don't stop until you make it. Go for international aids, spread the world. Easterns are brave, challenge the biggest power if needed to fight for their believes. Read about LGBT families, I am part of one and there's nothing wrong with it. GO FOR IT, LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND, PLANT A SEED IN THE PRESENT AND CHANGE THE FUTURE! God loves you all

Hello,
I am realy sad to here all of these stories from Saudi Arabia. It is bullshit to be a gay or a lisbian. Be hetrosexual, get married and build a new happy family as what your parent have done already... i have never seen a Gay or a lisbian in animal kingdom, so how do you think it is possible/allowed in human been. The one how practice this is worse than animal in my view. This is my personal opinion.

Hello everybody!
I am a 25 year old Saudi straight girl and my family is trying to force me to get married to a Saudi man. I do not believe in religions and I do not want to marry a religious man that I do not know. I feel bad for gays in Saudi and I would like to help a gay guy and also have him help me. My plan is getting married to a secretly gay guy that my family accepts so we both can live our lives and be good friends and make our families happy. reply to this if you like my proposal.
Thanks x

COULD GAYS snd LESBIANS MARRY EACHOTHER? they could fool everyone this way but still get to live their lives. It is not fair for gays and lesbians that just quietly want to live their lives. If marriage must be forced, could a gay man make an arrangement with a lesbian to get married and tell his family they will marry. Then the husband and wife can openly allow their gay and lesbian 'friends' come and stay at their home. This seems like a nice solution to get the constraints of society off their backs.
