Why I love New York and free speech

5 10 2007

Earlier this month, the President of Iran spoke at Columbia University. One of his famous remarks was that there were no homosexuals in Iran, which drew laughter from the crowd.

It just goes to show in a country where freedom of speech is allowed and encouraged, anyone can make an utter and complete fool, even an a** out of themselves.

Just ask our President.

I’m just sayin ….

OH, and for a look into what gay life is like in Iran, check out this Op-Ed.

Despite denials, Gays exist, if quietly, in Iran
