Czech "peter meter" test for gay asylum seekers slammed by EU

Czech "peter meter" test for gay asylum seekers slammed by EU

"If you think a TSA grope is bad, gay men seeking asylum in the Czech Republic are forced to drop their pants and get hooked up to a penile plethysmograph to find out just how gay they are. After the "peter meter" device is attached to their penises, they are subjected to all kinds of pornography to see what happens to their junk. This test then determines if they can seek asylum."

This is a multiple reminder of how great it is in the US. We complain about the TSA pat-down when others are forced to endure much worse. Second, we are in the middle of a debate for the rights of gays to marry when gays in other countries are lucky if they aren't killed or imprisoned. I am, and have been for a long time, a supporter of gay rights. But every so often it is sobering to see how much better the situation is in our little corner of the planet.
