I do not doubt that most cultures found it reprehensible, the uissue I raise is that it exists anyway, no matter what the culture views of it.  Whether having legal recognition or not it exists in every society, the only difference is if a society acknowledges it or not.  Most north American Natives lived the most free lives that any people ever have throughout all of history, and it wasnt chaos or decay, it was perfectly fine..at least until the coming of the white man.

I realise that you would rather obtain responses from Muslim correspondents, but I hope that my own experience will be helpful.

 

As a gay male, I have found that Muslims I have met are more interested in, than 'horrified' by, my lifestyle, and my choice to be open about it.  It seems to really fascinate them that I have the choice to be open.  Of course, the Muslim world is a big place.  Those I know personally come from Iraq, Algeria and Egypt.

 

Another correspondent referred to geo-political issues as being a more consistent grievance, and I have found this to be true.  It would seem, from my limited experience, that moral issues are more a religious-fundamentalist concern.
