''They asked me when I first had anal intercourse, oral sex, what sort of toys I played with as a child..."

Ahmet, a young man in his 20s, told officials he was gay at the first opportunity after he was called up, as he and other conscripts underwent a health check.

"They asked me if I liked football, whether I wore woman's clothes or used woman's perfume," he says.

''I had a few days' beard and I am a masculine guy - they told me I didn't look like a normal gay man.''

He was then asked to provide a picture of himself dressed as a woman.

''I refused this request,'' he says. ''But I made them another offer, which they accepted.'' Instead he gave them a photograph of himself kissing another man.

Ahmet hopes this will give him what he needs - a "pink certificate", which will declare him homosexual and therefore exempt from military service.

It's pretty messed up, but I find their expectations for what a gay person's like hilarious. Especially in them asking for a picture of him wearing women's clothes.

I'm sorry, but that's just too damn funny.

First thing I thought too - how gay are these lads asking for pictures of men dressed as women? (not that I really think that wearing women's clothes make anyone gay )

He's not the only one.

As a gay man he was also afraid of being bullied, and after little more than a week he plucked up the courage to declare his sexual orientation to his commander.

''They asked me if I had any photographs.'' Gokhan says, ''And I did.''

He had gone prepared with explicit photographs of himself having sexual intercourse with another man, having heard that it would be impossible to get out of military service without them.

''The face must be visible,'' says Gokhan. ''And the photos must show you as the passive partner.''

The photographs satisfied the military doctors

Phrasing, goddamnit.

But yeah, it's a little worrying what stereotype these guys have of gay men. I mean, what difference does it make whether you're sitting on a dong or have a dude sit on your dong?

Gays shouldn't be exempt from military service. Instead, everyone should be.

But then how would we create whimsical situations such as this?

they undergo things like that because most "men" have an adverse opinion towards feminity, and by pushing their buttons they are often times proven to not be gay.


the turkish army doesn't allow gay individuals so lots of people try to pass themselves off as gay.

shocking i know.
#24
Seems like these muslim countries would be better off with a 'gays only' recruitment policy.

It discourages homosexuality, thins out the gay population and gives the turkish government a constant supply of amateur hetro porn from the people proving they're straight.

misconceptions about gays are sometimes funny and often annoying. i know someone who constantly talks about, "those skinny gays. you know. how they're always super skinny."

he said it all the time until i suggested that they might have AIDS. he also was concerned for me when i first went to college on the off chance i got a gay roommate, because he might try to rape me in my sleep.

Exactly. I'm glad everyone's laughing at it instead of saying it's wrong. Because it's not fair that gay men get out of service when all other men there don't. Even if it's demeaning, at leas they have a legal way out of serving.

It could be Turkey's way of saying "Sorry that everyone else who follows this religion is such a douchebag, you don't have to do this!".

The Romans weren't really into freaky stuff; sure, their art generally depicted physically impossible boners(like, bigger than your leg boners), but the conception that upper-class Romans lived every day like Caligula is frankly rubbish.

would you fake being gay to get out of going to the army?
that includes posing with a dick in your ass/kissing a man and wearing womens clothing

This is one of the many reasons I am so glad I turned my back on my Turkish heritage. I will be flamed to hell for this but suck it....

Every Turk I have met, from members of my own family to random people at uni or weddings and large gatherings, on visits to Turkey and North Cyprus, every single one of them has been an ignorant motherfucker. Even my uncle who is a professor... They are all backward. Yes I am generalising my own people but its hard not to when you are surrounded by ignorant backward morons all day and everyday...

I'm surprised they aren't executing gays...

I know that feel, bro. But it's honestly much, much better than most Muslim countries. Be proud of it for being more progressive than the rest.
