Pakistan — a global leader in intolerance towards homosexuals — leads the world in Google searches for gay pornography, according to an analysis of search terms published by Mother Jones.
The study found the Islamic republic is the world leader by volume of searches form the terms “shemale sex,” “teen anal sex,” and “man f***ing man,” while it ranks second in searches for the term “gay sex pics.”
The term “shemale sex” was most-searched for in the city of Peshwar, a conservative Islamic stronghold that has become a frontline in the war on terror.
In a survey of 39 countries worldwide, the Pew Research Center asked the question, “Should society accept homosexuality?”
In the United States and Western Europe the answer was a resounding “yes,” but wallowing at the bottom of the countries surveyed was Pakistan where only 2% of those surveyed answered in the affirmative making the predominantly Muslim nation one of the least tolerant countries on Earth, according to Mother Jones.
“Religious extremism is at a height today,” said Farahnaz Ispahan, an expert in Pakistani minorities at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and a former member of Pakistans parliament.
“Hindus are being forced to convert, Christians are being burned alive—there’s very little personal safety for those seen as the other.” Ispahan said while trying to explain Pakistans odd relationship with homosexuality and gay porn.
“So what do [gay Pakistanis] do? They turn to pornography because they cant live their lives openly.”
Part of the reason why gay Pakistanis cant live openly is because gay sex is illegal and can be punished with a lengthy jail sentence.
