Progressives still have some work to do if they are going to integrate two of their favorite causes, transsexuality and Islam:
A transgender Muslim woman [i.e., man pretending to be a woman] has been hacked to death in Russia days after marrying a man after [his] father pleaded on television: ‘Bring him here and kill him in front of my eyes’.
Adam Aliev became Raina after a sex change operation in Moscow, and was killed several days after a ‘wedding’ to a man called Viktor.
The killing took place after the 25-year-old’s father Alimshaikh Aliev had told a TV station: ‘Let him be killed, I don’t want to see him. Bring him here and kill him in front of my eyes.’
Aliev was an ethnic Chechen from the Muslim Dagestan region. His body was reportedly cut up so badly as to be unrecognizable, although given the sex change operation, that might have been said even before the murder.
His own parents issued a “purman” calling for his death. There is no shortage of likely suspects. According to someone from his home town who knew Aliev,
‘Every second man in the Caucasus wanted to kill him. According to our traditions, it is just a disgrace for his family, it is a dirt on the whole Caucasus.’
I’m guessing the cancelation of Bruce Jenner’s reality show “I Am Cait” did not cause a great deal of grief among Russia’s Muslim community.
