Faris Malik Biography

Manager of Muslim-oriented gay websites, "Born Eunuchs" and "Queer Jihad"
Pro to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"

“The innately and exclusively homosexual men of the ancient world inhabited the category of eunuchs. What we moderns think of as a eunuch, namely a castrated man, was simply an artificially manufactured homosexual. Natural and man-made eunuchs co-existed as distinct categories for at least a thousand years, from the first-reported mass castrations about 600 BCE until 400 CE.”
