First Gay Jordanian blog


Jordanian gays find the internet as their only means of communicating their internal feelings to the outer society of Jordan that percieve them as immoral people.

I came across this interesting blog for a Jordanian guy from Irbid who is trying to explain out his struggle of his homosexual feelings through his blog.

He said:

بكل بساطة لأنها وسيلة التعبير الوحيدة المتاحة لي لكي أعبر عن مشاعري المكبوتة منذ أكثر من إثنى عشر عاما نعم لقد كبت مشاعري في داخلي وخجلت منها لأني مثلي الجنس مضطهد من قبل معظم أفراد مجتمعي لدرجة أني وصلت إلى مرحلة قريبة من الانفجار بسبب عدم قدرتي على التوفيق بين توجهاتي الجنسية وديني الذي كنت ملتزما به ولكن الحمد لله الآن أنا متقبل بشكل كامل لمثليتي وفخور بها ولكن أحب أن أكون واضحا منذ البداية لا أريد من أعزائي قراء هذه المدونة أن يعتقدوا أن الهدف منها هو نشر المثلية بالمجتمع بالعكس تماما فأنا لا أطلب من أي إنسان أن يتحول إلى مثلي الجنس ولكن عزيزي/عزيزتي قارئة هذه المدونة إذا كنت مثلي الجنس أرجو أن تتقبل ذاتك وتتصالح مع نفسك فنحن لم نختر بأيدينا أن نكون مثليين هكذا خلقنا وهذا هو قدرنا ونحن بكل سعادة فخورين باختلافنا بالتوجهات الجنسية عن الآخرين ونرجو من مجتمعنا الحبيب أن يتقبلنا كما نحن بدون اضطهاد ولا داعي لكي نخفي رؤوسنا تحت التراب فنحن موجودون في كل المجتمعات وعلى مر العصور لن ننقرض ولن نختفي من الوجود وسنبقى نناضل في هذه الحياة حتى يتم قبولنا ونحصل على حقوقنا الكاملة التي سبقنا إليها الكثير من المثليين في الدول المتقدمة التي تحترم حقوق الإنسان المقدسة ومنها الحق في حرية التعبير الذي أمارسه هنا في هذه المدونة الجديدة وكما قال فولتير أنا لست مقتنعاً بشيء مما تقوله لكني سأدافع حتى الموت عن حقك في أن تقول

I wonder how this cry out of a sincere voice would affect the homophobic society of Jordan.

    I came across this blog yesterday and read all his posts, really it’s weird, I have to say it’s disgusting or the god created them like this by nature as they pretend!! (I have no idea)!!. In all cases keep silent will do nothing, we have to discuss this matter scientifically and psychologically cuz we couldn’t deny they are exist in our society.

  2. Hey RedRose, yes, keep on silence wont do any good to anyone. Maybe it is disgusting for you because you are not used to such scene because our society keep it secret. Scientist don’t yet know how our sexual orientation develop, genetic and early childhood might have a big role in that. But they percieve homosexuals are normal people. It isn’t a sickness, and it exists everywhere. Maybe people should try to understand it.

  3. Very interesting… I think the worst thing to do is oppress anyone… Let people be …I might not agree with it or like it .. but it’s not my business!If they think there is something wrong with them, they can (and some do) seek help. But if they’re fine with themselves, and stay away from my business … then .. It’s their life

  5. Very interesting.I really feel bad for homosexuals in Jordan (or anywhere for that matter) because people don’t let them be.Why should anybody care who sleeps with what or whom, no?It’s interesting that blogging would allow him to express himself when he couldn’t do it in the real world.Fadi, you always bring up interesting topics, keep it coming🙂

  6. truly this guy pissed me off! inno ok gay, but really did you read the written comments? can you imagine the tight pants and posture and blaaaaaa..!!! its like, i am Arab, for me to see an arab gay who acts feminine really makes me wonder! how is he formulated?! i have an identity problem for him, ya3ni, imagine a head of an arab political party who is gay! it is possible but not credible, i wont have faith in his leadership, its like pedophile pope,, a gay doesnt qualify by the laws of arab culture!! ma 3am tinbale3! the first thing that occurs to me is “biddak shad baraghee ya 7ilu” if our culture could expand in skin and adapt and adjust, i donno how replica of European culture we would be? i know people who are gay, i deal with them like normal people, but why on earth should i give him the right to claim rights as if its a third gendre or as if ana mi6ehdito!! its his choice in this society. he should adapt.. not me!

  8. i think liberty is a precious value humanity could reach… if a man likes a man, or a woman likes a woman, they have the right to feel that… so we, the straight people, should accept this as if we are claiming for equality and justice… because when we say that these people have no right to do so because we think it is wrong, we will say no for so many other things, that in our “perspective” are wrong…

    It seems Mr. Gay Jordanian wants people to hear him out but he refuses to let others share their views on his blog. I got all of my posts on his blog deleted. Is this a joke? Here is a guy who cries freedom of expression and who demands to be heard, but he is so quick to repress others and censor them.

  10. Qwaider, I agree, everyone entitled to his life. I can’t understand why some people get all worked out for some other people’s lifes!Average-Moh, I have such respect for this guy. I feel sorry for him for having to go through this and yet being attacked for being courageous and talk about it.7aki fadi, thx🙂. I guess that we will be hear about more and more homosexuals coming out now that our society is getting more exposure to the world.Tala, wait a minute, pedophiles are so different than homosexuals, you can’t compare the two. Another thing what does matter if a gay man is mascular or femininie? We do stereotype them to be femininie while most of the gay men are in fact as masculine as any straight man. Besides, femininity shouldn’t be a problem, if that is the physic and mentality of the guy. Who told you that we dont have gay political leaders? We most definatly have many who keep their sexuality to themselves. If you one day wake up to know that someone who you admire is in fact gay, why would he loose his credibility to you?hamede, no need to shoot anyone😛. Just leave them alone and let them leave you alone. Everyone is entitled to his own life.nidal abutarbush, you put it nicely. I 100% agree.sid, it is sad if he does that. Maybe he got overwhelmed by the hate messages that were sent to him. I don’t know.

  11. I met an Azerbaijani gay in a bar here in jordan one day, he was drunk and he sat beside me. the way he spoke was obviously weird but i thought it was just because he’s drunk at first, later I went throught a conversation with him, he told me that he’s heading the next day to Istanbul to resolve a problem with his boyfriend. again at first I thought he meant his girlfriend. but he kept going on telling me about HIM .. and I realized that he’s homosexual. he all in sudden bursted into tears .. he was really sad because he broke with his boyfriend. and i don’t know .. I just felt that my old thoughts abouth gays were wrong .. he’s a human .. he has feelings and above all he was very nice as a person talking in whatever .. it was almost 3:00 am when he decided to leave to prepare for his journey to turkey, and he gave me a hug and asked me to wish wish him luck with his boyfriend!

  14. Wedz, this guy has posted some versus of love which he quoted from the bible. Regardless what any interpretation of the old testemony you follow, no one can be christian and ignore that love message of Jesus. Jesus loved the wicked more than the good. He came to save everyone. If you really follows his teachings you shouldn’t condemn people to be a work of Satan! Natasha, yes, he is masculine and talented🙂

    Well, i think gay people are normal , just like everyone else, seriously, why do we have to use labels? it is up to them whom they want to sleep with, or whom they feel attracted to, at the end of the day, they are humans, not less than any of us, infact most of them have achieved GREAT things in thier lives! And for those of you who ‘Hate’ or get ‘pissed off’ by Homosexuality, imagine if your brother, your cousin, or even your own kid is gay, how would you deal with it? if we scale things on ourselves before judging other people, we might be able to accept them and start looking at this thing from another perspective, because it can be anyone,ANYONE! no one is prevented from being a gay.And Natasha, I highly agree with you about the creativity!🙂 they are very talented and creative.

He is a spirit. when it is written in the bible that God created us in his image, he didn’t mention if it is a man or woman. It isn’t clear what image was meant.Gayness is as natural as straightness. It is both natural. God created both, and he loves both. It is a sin lying to yourself, not being yourself in terms of how God created you.

  37. Wedz, if homosexuality is natural that doesnt mean that God shouldn’t have created Eve.He created both. Straights and Homosexuals. I believe that these versus are for straight men who have sex with gay men, not gay men who have sex with other gay men.If a gay man sleeps with a woman, then this would be out of his nature. Out of what God give him. Which would make it a sin.

  39. dear Observer … thx for noticing the most courageous guy on the blogs … or one of the most🙂 .. i really admire him .. and respect him … no need to talk more about him bcoz his blog is expressing more … between all the comments the most comment i noticed is wedz’s comment … he/she siad ” as i said God created us as his image,, do u think god is gay!!!! ” it’s really funny simple way of thinking :)) … i couldn’t help to stop laughing .. u answered her comment very well … but I want to add something here … God created us on his image .. ok .. that’s right .. but .. we are one object of all the objects on the universe … which been created by God … But do u think God will create anything he cant experience it him self ? … I believe that creation is an experiment … experiment of all the aliments that exist in the spectrum of life … And I believe that God is the extremists experiment on the both sides of the aliment … For example .. God created light .. he created darkness as well .. and the light knows it self by the darkness and the darkness knows it self by the dark … but this aliment can’t be the extremist .. bcoz on the both sides of this aliment there is God … he is the most light and the most dark … he is the most Good and the most evil .. the most love and the most ignorance …. He is on both sides of the creation spectrum … And when religious scripts tells us that God created us on his image .. dose any one think about that this say contain something else the outlook ! .. something like the ability to be Gods our selves … !! any one of you thought about this before ? .. But hey …. Wait a minute .. I don’t mean we are the same as God … but we are a part .. and we are the experiment of God creation … and every EVERY single aliment inside of us and every single feeling we have .. it’s all apart of God him self … Creation is an experiment … and God is experiencing him self through us and through every single aliment he did create … and it’s out role to experiencing our selves the same way as God do .. bcoz that’s what God wants us to do … Dear wedz … if u asking if God is gay I will answer u yes : ) … being Gay is a part of God and he is experiencing this part … as being straight as being in love as being in glory as being in ignorance … it’s all back to the same holy spirit .

  40. at least he knew himself and came to a conclusion that he is of that sexuality.i’m sure the amount of such “frowned-upon” acts are happening between the bushes and when they get caught to be asked what they are, they use the arab term for gay which is “bisexual” and move on in their lives to have a nice happy sham marriage.I’m really interested to read his blog, not that I totally approvebut who am I to come to a person and tell him what to be or not to be?

Just today I heard a woman ordering another woman never to mention “the queer” because they’re dirty and should not be talked about.Homosexuality has been present throughout history.. and about 10% of the world’s population is gay. Many might say these 10% would exist in the US, or Europe, while in fact this number goes across cultures and geographical locations. Gay men do not choose to be gay. It is biological and some argue that genetics could contribute to homosexuality. Gay men are not asking to be classified at a third gender!!!!! not all gay men act feminine, and I don’t know any gay men who wish they were females!!!Tala, how would being gay make a man less credible? or less worthy of holding office? The most intelligent men I had met were gay, I would trust them in office, and I really cannot establish any connection between credibility and sexual orientation!!You know gay people and you deal with them like they are human beings? Honey, they are human.. maybe even more human than you! They are not asking for any more rights that heterosexuals don’t have! As a matter of facts, Jordan’s gay population are not asking for much.. just acceptance at the mean time!! If our society is controlled by religious institutions, you, as individuals should at least understand that there is nothing wrong with them!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE get an education! Please don’t insist on bigotry and just accept their presence in our society! People, please stop being stupid and intolerant.. You don’t have to embrace it, just try to be less judgmental!!!

  42. Anonymous, I am afraid that you are a bit late to this conversation. A heated debate was triggered among the blogsphere on various blogs about this issue.Unfortunatly 56% voted against adding Gay Jordan blog to Qwaider aggregator. People in Jordan seem to need sometime to absorb the facts about gays. I agree with everything you said. Welcome to my blog🙂

    hi everyone!i was reading the comments, and i agree that gay people are humans too. They were created gay and didnt have a choice, in fact, why would anyone chose not to have kids, and chose to be looked down at in our Arab society, etc. i think that no one would chose this and that people should just accept it, and if not, then dont insult and show hatred towards gays because you really have no right to do so. I also want to say that im very proud of muhammad for being so brave and accepting himself, muhammand, i want to tell you that you really motivated me and i wish you the best of luck!

  45. I am a doctor who lived in USA for 7 years. I am not surprised to see this blog and I expect that the number of people who will endorse homosexuality will increase rapidly in the Arab world. I know that deviant sexual practices existed in our area as in other countries for a long time but to be open about it and to commit to strict homosexual practices is new. We are a defeated nation and it is not unusual for defeated people to imitate their defeaters. The prophet PBUH told us that we will follow the paths of other nations and this is only one example. All homosexuals I know were victims of sexual abuse when they were young and they deserve psychological treatment but they cannot guide the rest of us to believe in their delusions. I think the only way out of this problem for its victims is to repent to Allah and ask for forgiveness and guidance and not to be proud of using your anus for pleasure while it was created for defecation. Wake up people: You will be ashamed of yourselves in this life and in the hereafter.

    I think that this comment is outdated…i just stumbled upon this blog entry, and i may have some things to add.Am gay, it goes beyond my sexual desires, my physical interactions with the same sex, and my emotional connectedness to my fellow men.You are a woman tala, are you only defined by your love of the opposite sex? are you defined SOLELY by your sexual/emotional interests!For me (others may disagree), being gay goes beyond my sexual desires, it is a big part of me, yeah, i like wearing purple t’s and i like to sing along Ms. Gaynor’s words, so tell me this, HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOU?But guess what! am also a dozen other things that you might get a chance to actually notice if you got over yourself and talked to me like the regular GAY person that i am.People try to broaden your thinking a bit, it wont hurt.One more thing that bugs me the most, is why is it that when you say someone is gay, he/she is immediately labeled, i don’t see that happening with straight people, not all gay people are looking for adultery, just like not all straight men/women are, is that so difficult to comprehend that being gay can be more than merely a skin-deep stereotype which is being enforced by the multitude of media that we are surrounded by.

    Nope, being gay is not a choice,it is what we are…But dear lord, how I wish I could be straight…most gays, believe me will choose to be straight if we have that choice……..but as I’ve said it is not and we can not choose……..we just feel this way!We look like any other men, we act, we talk, we work like straight men but we feel attracted to our own kind……No I was not abused when I was a kid, I am just like any other kid on school…….but oftentimes I find myself more at ease playing with girls…I find myself more inclined in arts and music…..what’s wrong with that?I believe I was born like this so I was created like this…..I am gay….I live!

    I am amazed at the authority that you people who in one sentance admit to “not understanding gays, or why a man want to be a woman” then go on to orate from your place f admitted ignorance about how God created or did not Create people this way or that. Were you there when he did? GOD forgive you for placing such limits on his ability to love- you are compelled to do so because in your own words “I don not understand…” If I were you I would make use your God given ability to humble yourself before him and leave such large and potentially life altering descisions about others to him and him alone.And on another topic… if you are living in the Western world you are enjoying liberties and human rights that would otherwise be denied you in middle eastern regions. So you have a lot of nerve picking and choosing the freedoms and priveledges that should be extended, limiting them to those that serve youre purpose and speaking out against those that you have no use for or simply “do not understant”. Human Rights is not a buffet. You may not support those that improve your quality of life and reject those that support people who are different than you. This is inane because Human Rights are called such because they are for HUMANS. so If the people you misunderstand or can not relate to at all- for any reason- are enjoying freedoms you enjoy too… be happy they are given such freedoms despite what your think, because just a stone’s throw away is an even larger group of people that believe just as strongly as you, that you do not desrve the priveledges you have been given. Thank God they dont get to decide your fate any more than you get to decide the fate of the Gay Arab community. Careful what you wish for, all knives have curved blades… you may end up cutting yourself off while doing so to others.“Human Rights”, not “Rights for some”
