Gay-Free Iran

Iranian President Ahmadinejad is getting a lot of criticism for his speech at Columbia, particularly for his comments about gay rights in Iran.

His exact words were: “In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country. We don’t have that like in your country. In Iran we do not have this phenomenon. I don’t know who’s told you that we have this.” Aww Mr. President…next thing you’re going to tell us is that unicorns don’t actually exist.

Editorial note: Whoa! You’ve found a super-old post here on BuzzFeed, from an earlier era of the site. It doesn’t really represent where we are anymore, and may in fact be totally broken, but we’re leaving it up as a part of our early history.
