Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 04, 2019

Pakistan's "third-gender" people, or khawaja sehras as they call themselves, are often rejected by their families and have no-one to look after them in old age. But at last a member of the community has opened a retirement home, reports the BBC's Mobeen Azhar, providing dignity for residents in their final years. In the shadow of the grand Bahadshai Mosque in Lahore is the Diamond Market district. You can't buy diamonds there, but you can pay for sex and you can watch khawaja sehras dance. For a fee of course. The area has long been home to Pakistan's social misfits: sex workers and the third gender. Here, youth is currency. Older sex workers and third-gender people charge less for their services, and in old age many of them find it hard to make a living. Twenty-five years ago, Ashee Butt, or Guru Ashee as she is affectionately known, was a fixture on the Lahore party scene. She had many lovers and could be seen dancing and singing at weddings and private parties across the city.

It is nice to see that Islamic Pakistan embraces it's transgender population with such tolerance.

Pakistanis should be proud of their sexually tolerant and permissive Islamic society. In a society where homosexuality, transgender sex and even ---------- are so prevalent, it is good to know that as these Pakistanis get older, there will always be a place for them.

A few things to observe here:

1. This is the third gay/tranny thread created by MODER8 about Pakistan.

Dude.... it's OK. Just come out and admit it openly. Nothing can stay in the closet forever.

2. Americans have lost their pioneer spirit. Anything that isn't missionary position, heavens will fall.

3. Pakistan cares about all it's weirdos.

4. MODER8 is reacting to what I said about him (and KARL/KAKAHAJOO) on the NOONER two days ago.

Here is an old saying... "When you come up with a response AFTER the fight ended, just punch yourself in the face"... LOL

Beena is less hopeful.

"Gay rights in America came after women had basic rights. You don't see that in Pakistan. You are not allowed a difference of opinion here. My father is a gentleman but I wouldn't put it past him to put a bullet through my head. I'm all for being 'true to myself' but I don't want to die young," she says.

Yea, Pakistan is soooooo tolorant..

Notice Tremain's name was never mentioned once in the article or comments. And yet, for narcissistic little wiener Tremain, this thread is all about him. Pathetic. But since you do choose to inject yourself into the story, Tremain must be proud that the prevalent and ubiquitous sexual practices of the Muslim people of Pakistan is receiving such positive attention. Hold your head up high.

And as I predicted... you insult KARl KAKAHAJU in the NOONER and MODER8 reacts!

LOL... was I right or was I right?

I told everyone yesterday and this is the proof right before your eyes.

Oh no... it's not about me.... it's about YOU! And your fetish for trans people.

This is the third thread you have created about trans people and I am sure you will create many more. LOL

Pathetic.

As I said in the NOONER....

MODER8's song..

youtu.be

Buried in the rot gut gin
You played and lost not won
You played a house that can't be beat
Now look your head's bowed in defeat
You walked too far along the street
Where only lads can run.

Old fart. You are too old for these new games. You suck at them.
