  1. Typical of macho, manly Muslims to degrade a man by ‘feminizing’ him.
    Of course, as usual Muslims are always that which they accuse others of being and seeing as most of them are actually homosexual, loud-mouthed, cowardly, cry-babies, and about as much ‘real men’ as Mohammed was, they just don’t see that what they are doing here is typical ‘projection’.

    Putting him away might do more harm to his family than good if he’s the family breadwinner.

    Pakistan employs transvestites to shame shop owners who won’t pay taxes. They show up and refuse to leave till he pays up.
