Global views on homosexuality: lost in translation

Embedded image permalink You see, those global surveys are really meaningless given the language and culture differences. I will speak about the Arab world. What word was used for homosexuals? It is not as easy to translate.  If they used the politically correct term of "muthliyyun", most of the people of the region would not even know what you are talking about.  Global surveys are only reliable if people of the world speak the same language and grow up in the same culture.
