A book I read on the hunt for bin Laden (called, oddly enough, The Hunt for Bin Laden), describes a Special Forces team stumbling across a village of Liberace-type homosexuals - they were all wearing make-up, they had rhinestone studded rifles & cars. The author quotes some of the SF men as saying that was the most scared they ever were in Afghanistan!

Not to get all overly pedantic about a funny anecdote, but are we all clear that the makeup and rhinestones don’t “prove” these Afghanis like cock, any more than Lincoln’s purported homosexuality is “proven” by the fact that he and Joshua Speed slept under the same quilt on the same mattress for four years when they were both young and broke? (Which was an entirely unremarkable thing for heterosexual men to do in mid-19th-century America.)
