Muslim men, do you like gays?

Looking for the old results?
The general perception is that most muslims are homophobic, which is hardly surprising considering that not one Islamic country tolerates homosexual relationships, but might we get some surprises from this poll. It is directed towards heterosexual muslim men, as I have already known some muslim women to be tolerant. The general aim of this is to examine changing masculinities in Islamic culture as it is graduallly becoming more and more accustomed to the West.

Heterosexual/straight muslim men, how do you view gay people?

26% (12) I hate them with the utmost instensity, I think those perverts should be stoned to death.
8% (4) I hate them a lot, I think they should be punished severely with long-term prison sentences, with possible hard labour.
4% (2) I hate them, I think they should be given prison sentences of something like a few years or less.
6% (3) I don't like them, they shouldn't necessarily be jailed for their actions, but society should look down on them and make their lives misery.
6% (3) I tolerate them and think they should have rights, but they still can't hope to be practising muslims, the Qu-ran still strictly forbids their immoral acts.
24% (11) I like gay people and don't believe Allah has anything against them, whatever happened to real peace and tolerance?
22% (10) I love gays, they're much friendlier than most other people.

45 voters have answered this question.

Do you honestly believe gays have a choice in the matter?

20% (9) Yes, gays only do what they do because they're sick and evil.
9% (4) Yes, gays just love to insult our sacred values with their mindless hedonism.
20% (9) Yes, with enough psychological help, gays can get their heads right and become decent people.
4% (2) No, gays will just sadly have to remain celebate if they want to be a good practising muslim.
45% (20) No, Allah made them that way and loves them for who they are.

44 voters have answered this question.

What do you think of gay-bashing/homophobia?

15% (7) Should be encouraged, but it shouldn't stop there.
17% (8) Should be encouraged because it's the right thing to do.
8% (4) Everybody's democratic right.
8% (4) I don't like it, but it's still everybody's democratic right.
11% (5) I don't like it, there should be restrictions on that kind of hateful behaviour.
28% (13) I don't like it at all, it's just as bad as racism.
8% (4) Both anti-homophobia and anti-racism is a bunch of poltically correct nonsense.

45 voters have answered this question.

Have you yourself ever had homosexual feelings?

35% (16) No, what do you think I am, some kind of sicko?
17% (8) No, but it wouldn't bother me if I did
6% (3) Yes, but I suppressed them for the good of my morals and self-respect.
0% (0) Yes, but I didn't act on them because I'm in a straight relationship.
8% (4) Yes, but it didn't mean much.
31% (14) Yes, in fact I've even been in a relationship with a man.
