Saudi Arabian Morality Police To Enforce Ban On “Gays And Tomboys” From Schools

Though oil-rich Sauda Arabia is our “ally” in many ways, it’s no secret their social practices tend to more than raise eyebrows from international human-rights activists.

The newest transgression: a ban on “gays and tomboys” that will be enforced by their ruthless morality police. It mirrors a similar crackdown in Iraq that has claimed the lives of nearly 60 people perceived to be either gay or emo.

The girl on the left in this photo wouldn’t survive a day in Saudi Arabian schools because of her dangerous admiration of un-feminine things, it seems.

Emirates 24/7 quotes a newspaper called Sharq Arabic, who had the news:

The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the most feared law enforcement authority in the oil-rich country, has been asked to enforce the new orders, Sharq Arabic language daily said.

“Instructions have been issued to all public schools and universities to ban the entry of gays and tom boys and to intensify their efforts to fight this phenomenon, which has been promoted by some websites,” it said.

The paper did not make clear who issued those instructions but said gay and tom boy students can go back to schools and universities if they prove they have been corrected and have stopped such practices.

The last big gay Saudi Arabian scandal came when they wanted to behead British nurses Stephen Comiskey for “flaunting his sexuality” (and possibly being connected to a Saudi gay prince).
