The eagerness to accuse immigrants and Muslims of being intolerant of slaves seems rather peculiar when one considers the kind of attitudes that still exist among so-called Norwegian ethnicists.
"Can we get in touch with a gay Muslim? One who dares not come out of the closet for fear of reactions from other Muslims? ”This story has been under pressure many times before. Yet this is almost literally the same request we get from almost all journalists who approach us in Skeiv Verden.
One journalist even wanted us to find two gay Muslim men who would hold hands on Greenland to provoke reactions. Although they lacked volunteers to take on the task, the conclusion seemed in place before the case was nearing pressure: Immigrants, preferably Muslims, pose a threat to gays.
This is a marketable story that Norwegians like to read – at least the journalists believe it, and maybe they are right. People like to get confirmed the performances they already have. If you read news stories about Muslims and homosexuality, it is no wonder that this notion prevails. If it is true that many Muslims have negative attitudes towards gays – are they alone about this in Norway?
It is not just Norwegian journalists who are in doubt. . .
