Fox news should first look into gay bishops who are sexually abusing young boys.

Well...I knew without research that Pathans are partial to anal sex. Their whole poetry is full of it. Even I can recall the translation of one verse:

"There lives a boy across the river with a bottom like a peach" "But alas! I do not know how to swim."

There are a billion jokes, which the pathan will gladly narrate to you. A pathan was asked why do you indulge in such a dirty habit when your women are so pretty? He replied: "Al ak a tum kana khata....tau phir fruit kiyyun khata?" (Hey man, you eat food...then why do you eat fruit?)

The odd thing in the report is that the Americans, who themselves have millions of gays, should be so naive as to tell us that they had to teach certain Pathans how to breed children. If the Pathans didn't even know that, then explain to me their presence for so many thousands of years.

Afghan Men Struggle With Sexual Identity, Study Finds

An unclassified study from a military research unit in southern
Afghanistan details how homosexual behavior is unusually common among
men in the large ethnic group known as Pashtuns -- though they seem to
be in complete denial about it.

As if U.S. troops and diplomats didn't have enough to worry about in
trying to understand Afghan culture, a new report suggests an entire
region in the country is coping with a sexual identity crisis.

An unclassified study from a military research unit in southern
Afghanistan details how homosexual behavior is unusually common among
men in the large ethnic group known as Pashtuns -- though they seem to
be in complete denial about it.

The study, obtained by Fox News, found that Pashtun men commonly have
sex with other men, admire other men physically, have sexual
relationships with boys and shun women both socially and sexually --
yet they completely reject the label of "homosexual." The research was
conducted as part of a longstanding effort to better understand Afghan
culture and improve Western interaction with the local people.

The research unit, which was attached to a Marine battalion in
southern Afghanistan , acknowledged that the behavior of some Afghan
men has left Western forces "frequently confused."

The report details the bizarre interactions a U.S. Army medic and her
colleagues had with Afghan men in the southern province of Kandahar .

In one instance, a group of local male interpreters had contracted
gonorrhea anally but refused to believe they could have contracted it
sexually -- "because they were not homosexuals."

Apparently, according to the report, Pashtun men interpret the Islamic
prohibition on homosexuality to mean they cannot "love" another man --
but that doesn't mean they can't use men for "sexual gratification."

The group of interpreters who had contracted gonorrhea joked in the
camp that they actually got the disease by "mixing green and black
tea." But since they refused to heed the medics' warnings, many of
them re-contracted the disease after receiving treatment.

The U.S. army medic also told members of the research unit that she
and her colleagues had to explain to a local man how to get his wife
pregnant.

The report said: "When it was explained to him what was necessary, he
reacted with disgust and asked, 'How could one feel desire to be with
a woman, who God has made unclean, when one could be with a man, who
is clean? Surely this must be wrong.'"

The Pashtun populations are concentrated in the southern and eastern
parts of the country. The Human Terrain Team that conducted the
research is part of a military effort to learn more about local
populations.

The report also detailed a disturbing practice in which older "men of
status" keep young boys on hand for sexual relationships. One of the
country's favorite sayings, the report said, is "women are for
children, boys are for pleasure."

The report concluded that the widespread homosexual behavior stems
from several factors, including the "severe segregation" of women in
the society and the "prohibitive" cost of marriage.

Though U.S. troops are commonly taught in training for Afghanistan
that the "effeminate characteristics" of Pashtun men are "normal" and
not an indicator of homosexuality, the report said U.S. forces should
not "dismiss" the unique version of homosexuality that is actually
practiced in the region "out of desire to avoid western discomfort."

Otherwise, the report said, Westerners could "risk failing to
comprehend an essential social force underlying Pashtun culture."
