Homosexual Crackdown!

Petulant just sent me this article headlined "Gays to face new clamp," about some really nasty homophobic immigration laws being considered in Bahrain. Quite obviously not a funny subject, but the story itself is, well, it's funny in the same way 1950's antigay propaganda films like "Boys Beware" are funny.

A NATIONWIDE crackdown on homosexuals could be launched in Bahrain, including tougher immigration checks to stop foreign gays entering the country. It would include a study to determine how widespread homosexuality is in Bahrain.
Crackdown and Widespread. I'm sure I've seen that movie. I believe it starred Rod Majors.

Defense and national security committee secretary Jalal Fairooz said he wasn't sure how the study could be done, since the Interior Ministry already bans "suspected homosexuals" from entering the country, but there are problems catching all those zany homos since they are thwarting the government's sophisticated homo-detection techniques by butching it up as they go through immigration.
"They look manly as they come to the airport, but when they get in they return back to their unaccepted homosexual attitude," said Mr Fairooz.

"Homosexuals are found in huge numbers at hairdressing salons and beauty and massage spas, which the ministry regularly inspects."

However, he said many homosexuals were slipping through the net because the ministry was having problems determining if they were gay or not.
Those sneaky queers! Obviously, Bahrain needs to get itself a gaydar!
