    Male sexual quirks among the Ottomans
    NIKI GAMM
    Male sexual quirks among the Ottomans “Your airs have turned my head! Say, who has brought you up so impudent?

    That stature by no cypress rivaled, who planned its development?

    Your tender body in respect of scent and color’s choice and pure,

    ‘Twould seem ‘twas at the breast of some rare rose that you found nourishment.

    You come, O vintner’s lad, a rose in hand, in the other wine;

    Which shall I choose? Is it the rose, the wine or you will give content?”

    [Nedim, in “The Penguin Book of Turkish Verse”]

    Nedim, who lived at the beginning of the 18th century, was one of dozens of Ottoman poets who openly expressed their interest in persons of their own sex. But what was this interest? The first interpretation that leaps to the modern, western mind is homosexuality and sexual activity (sodomy).

    But a serious look at Ottoman culture, and before that, Islam provides quite a different picture.

    Until the modern era, there was no word for sodomy in Arabic or Persian. Nor is there any prohibition of it in the Quran. Some make reference to the destruction of the town identified as Sodom of the Old Testament (which is supposed to be the origin of the word sodomy) in the Quran, Surah 15: 73-77 as if it were the source. But it is quite clear that the city was destroyed because its inhabitants refused to offer hospitality to strangers. Where does the prohibition against sodomy come from? The reference is to some hadith, the sayings and acts of the Prophet Muhammad, which the Sunni interpretation of Islam uses to provide a legal basis for legal matters not covered in the Quran.

    A recent article by Elyse Semerdjian that dealt with cases brought before the shariah court in Aleppo over a period of 359 years when it was under Ottoman control has turned up four, but only one concerning sodomy against a young man and his mother. The youngster is supposed to have brought men known to be involved in sodomy to his home to the anger of the people of his neighborhood. The two were expelled from their community, a customary punishment for prostitution that had become noticeable enough to disturb the neighbors. Sodomites, on the other hand, were not punished.

    Leaving aside the issue of sodomy, which was interpreted as prostitution, but little punished and hardly respected, throughout Middle Eastern literature, there are many expressions of male admiration of males and in particular young boys. In the latter case, it should be noted that boys as young as 7 were considered in Ottoman society to be old enough to leave the harem to go to school or be apprenticed or, at least among the poor, work. Those youngsters who were “beardless, smooth-cheeked, handsome and sweet-tempered” attracted the attention of older men who had a higher position, more money, power, etc. The relationship was a close one including holding hands, arms over each other’s shoulders, even kissing but would lack an overt sexual component. This attraction would last until puberty when the boy would start to grow facial hair, in other words, became a man.

    As long as the relationship lasted, the older man was expected to pine after his young beloved, shower him with expensive clothing and even buy him a house and other presents. The beloved, on the other hand, would behave in a capricious manner, employing various methods of shredding the lover’s emotions and making him uncertain of the continuity of the relationship and its final outcome.

    On a spiritual level

    HDN At the same time that one can interpret Ottoman poems as referring to real people, the lines also refer to the sublime. The beloved was God and the lover was the person who was attempting to achieve unity with God. “The Ottomans [also like the Europeans] inherit a long tradition of the spiritualization of love. That is to say … that a line of thought is broadly recognized that concludes that sexual desires or attractions are the physical manifestation of the soul’s yearning for return to a divine unity from which it was separated by birth into this material world.” [Walter G. Andrews and Mehmet Kalpaklı, “The Age of Beloveds”]

    This sentiment is related to that expressed by the members of the Sufi or mystic orders, which included many of the most powerful men in the Ottoman government and possibly the sultan himself. Some of the Sufis even organized what were known as “sema” during which ceremonies, they would sit in a circle and concentrate on the beautiful young boys in the center, concentrating to such an extent on what they perceived as beauty that they might fall into a trance. Since these ceremonies often lasted all night, the people who were opposed to these mystic orders were quick to accuse the participants of engaging in sodomy. As early as the 9th century these sema ceremonies were held and two centuries later they were condemned by orthodox conservatives as showing that the Sufis were engaged in heresy. A 17th reformist movement in the Ottoman Empire condemned this boy-gazing as heresy and equated it with sodomy even though the physical act itself had not occurred.

    What has been little studied is the issue of men wearing women’s clothing. Known as “zenne,” these men were in the public eye but it seems with little or no criticism. In the miniature depictions of festivals we see male dancers – it would have been impossible for women to have performed in public. And in the traditional Karagöz plays, one of the characters is a zenne.

    It wasn’t until the 19th century and increased exposure to Western European ideas that homosexuality, or rather the open attraction of an older man with a younger one among the Ottomans, began to retreat into the shadows. Western ignorance of Ottoman culture led to many invented tales of what occurred in society; lurid and fanciful stories were made up to shock and entertain western readers. Stories such as one about the women in the imperial harem dressing in male clothing in order to arouse the sultan’s sexual appetite were common. https://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/ma...ottomans-78968 Dat verklaard waarom erdogan graag travestieten uitnodigt .

    China zet Oeigoeren in als dwangarbeiders voor grote merken als Apple en Nike’
    Een Oeigoer demonstreert in oktober vorig jaar voor het Chinese consulaat in Istanbul, Turkije. Beeld REUTERS

    Oeigoeren worden in China als dwangarbeiders gebruikt. Ze moeten werken in fabrieken die voor bekende merken produceren, meldt een Australische denktank.
    Gijs Moes2 maart 2020, 19:04

    Vele tienduizenden Oeigoeren en andere moslims werken onder dwang in Chinese fabrieken, waar ze vaak produceren voor internationaal bekende merken. Ze staan onder bewaking, zijn beperkt in hun bewegingsvrijheid en mogen hun religie niet uitoefenen, meldt de Australische denktank Aspi in een nieuw rapport.

    Aspi komt op basis van overheidsdocumenten en berichten uit Chinese lokale media tot een lijst van 27 fabrieken die voor 83 verschillende merken produceren. Daarbij zijn veel bekende namen, zoals sportmerken Adidas, Puma, Nike en The North Face, computerbedrijven als Apple, Samsung en Dell, modemerken als Gap, H&M en Zara en autoproducenten zoals BMW en Volkswagen. In de fabrieken werken in totaal zo’n tachtigduizend Oeigoeren.

    De arbeiders worden in bewaakte treinen van Xinjiang naar het oosten van China gebracht. Ze wonen in slaapzalen, worden constant gevolgd en soms willekeurig vastgezet. De Oeigoeren zijn ook kwetsbaar, omdat hun families in Xinjiang onder controle van de overheid staan. Ze moeten buiten werktijd lessen volgen in de Chinese taal en ideologie. Slaapzalen worden doorzocht en als bijvoorbeeld een koran wordt aangetroffen, moet de eigenaar terug naar een strafkamp.
    Mishandeling

    De gedwongen arbeid is volgens het rapport een vervolg op het harde Chinese beleid in de provincie Xinjiang, waar de meeste Oeigoeren wonen. Een groot deel van de islamitische bevolking van deze westelijke regio van China zit vast in kampen, volgens schattingen van de Verenigde Naties gaat het om meer dan een miljoen gevangenen. Oeigoeren die in de kampen hebben gezeten, maken melding van mishandeling en marteling.

    Volgens Peking gaat het in Xinjiang echter om een campagne waarin de islamitische bevolking wordt behoed voor de invloed van terroristische organisaties. Bovendien zouden de Oeigoeren nieuwe vaardigheden aanleren, waarmee ze op de Chinese arbeidsmarkt terechtkunnen. China spreekt daarom van ‘educatieve kampen’ of ‘trainingscentra’. De arbeid in fabrieken zou daarbij aansluiten.

    Peking ontkent de bevindingen van Aspi met kracht. “Dit rapport past gewoon in het straatje van de Amerikaanse anti-Chinese krachten die de maatregelen tegen terrorisme in Xinjiang proberen te besmeuren”, zei woordvoerder Zhao Lijian van het ministerie van buitenlandse zaken gisteren. “De studenten in de trainingscentra zijn allemaal geslaagd en hebben nu een baan dankzij de overheid. Ze leiden een gelukkig leven.”
    Complexe ketens

    De meeste bedrijven die in het rapport worden genoemd, reageren afhoudend. Sommige, zoals Adidas, melden dat zij geen direct contact hebben met de vermelde toeleveranciers. Dat kan te maken hebben met de complexe ketens die achter de meeste producten zitten. Volgens Apple en Volkswagen is geen van de genoemde bedrijven een directe toeleverancier. Enkele bedrijven, waaronder kledingmerk Abercrombie & Fitch, hebben hun toeleveranciers opgedragen alle banden met de fabrieken in het rapport te verbreken.

    Geen enkel merk kan volgens Aspi uitsluiten dat zijn productie op de een of andere manier afhankelijk is van de gedwongen arbeid. De organisatie spreek van een ‘tot nu toe verborgen besmetting van de wereldwijde toeleveringsketen’. https://www.trouw.nl/economie/china-....google.com%2F

    China’s incarceration of Uyghurs and other Muslims exposed in US documentary

    China’s incarceration of Uyghurs and other Muslims exposed in US documentary

    A special undercover report from China’s secretive Xinjiang region. Investigating the Communist regime’s mass imprisonment of Muslims, and its use and testing of sophisticated surveillance technology against the population.(Credit: FRONTLINE/PBS)

    Meng Yihua

    A harrowing undercover investigation into China’s mass incarceration of Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities was aired on April 7, on America’s PBS TV network.

    In the ninth episode of this season, FRONTLINE reports on the Chinese regime’s mass detention and testing of high-tech surveillance against Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities.

    ‘China Undercover’ follows the stories of former detainees as well as relatives of current detainees.

    It explains the secret language used by Uyghurs, a spoken code in which ‘studying’ means someone is detained in the camps, in line with the Government claim that the camps are ‘re-education centres’.

    Former detainees speak of torture, and unbearable circumstances pushing many men and women suicidal thoughts, while Chinese officials declined to comment, instead upholding that ‘students’ are treated with respect and dignity.

    The documentary starts with the story of Sadryzhan whose wife travelled from Kazakhstan to East Turkestan referred to in China as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region to visit her parents two years ago and never returned to him and their three children.

    While he makes yet another trip to the Kazakhstan-China border in March 2019 to find news on his wife, we learn that calls made to China from foreign numbers are monitored, that the Chinese surveillance is so high-tech that it can pick up keywords used in conversations, and that fear among the Muslim minorities in Xinjiang is commonplace. He describes Xinjiang as “an open prison”.

    “Uyghurs are not considered human by the Chinese government,” says an engineer who helped build surveillance tools in China — which he says the Communist regime uses to gather data on the Uyghur Muslim population.
    FRONTLINE sends Han Chinese reporter I Li undercover to Xinjiang, to investigate further. He poses as a businessman seeking new opportunities on his vacation. He uses his mobile phone to film discreetly; if he is caught filming, even Li could be imprisoned.

    Through his conversations with Han taxi drivers, Uyghur taxi drivers, Han store workers, and any locals brave enough to speak with him, we learn that the rules for Uyghurs and Han Chinese are vastly different within Xinjiang.

    Frontline’s documentary makes sure to provide historical context, often overlooked in the discussion on the region. The Uyghurs have over a millennium history in Xinjiang, but tensions started when the Qing dynasty invaded 250 years ago.

    Today, the Han Chinese form 40 per cent of Xinjiang’s population. In 2009, when peaceful protests against the killing of two Uyghurs elsewhere in China were suppressed by police in Xinjiang, Uyghurs rioted and the Government reported approximately 200 deaths.

    Since then, and even more so since Xi Jinping came to power in 2012 with a vision of China that didn’t include Uyghurs, innumerable numbers of Uyghurs have been killed and imprisoned. Satellite imagery of Xinjiang within the documentary shows mosques being destroyed and vast prison-like structures and drone footage shows shackled prisoners.

    Experts say this is the largest mass incarceration of an ethnic group since the Holocaust; it is an attempt to wipe out the Uyghur traditions, language and culture. With an estimated two million Muslims and Uyghurs imprisoned across more than 1,200 detention centres, detainees suffer involuntary indoctrination, brainwashing and ultimately eradication of their entire way of life.

    US sanctions Chinese entities over human rights violations | DW | 22.05.2020
    Deutsche Welle (www.dw.com)
    4-5 minuten

    The US says it will penalize 33 Chinese entities for human rights abuses against Uighurs and other minority groups. The move comes after China imposed a law that would quell the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong.

    The US Department of Commerce on Friday said it would sanction 33 Chinese firms and government institutions over human rights abuses against Uighurs and other minority groups in China's western Xinjiang region. It came after Chinese lawmakers proposed a law that would put severe restrictions on the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong.

    The US will penalize two entities, the Chinese Ministry of Public Security's Institute of Forensic Science and Aksu Huafu Textiles, for "engaging in human rights violations and abuses." Seven other companies will be sanctioned for enabling surveillance in Xinjiang, the Commerce Department said, adding that all will be subject to restrictions from exports from the US.

    "These nine parties are complicit in human rights violations and abuses committed in China's campaign of repression, mass arbitrary detention, forced labor and high-technology surveillance against Uighurs, ethnic Kazakhs, and other members of Muslim minority groups in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region," the Commerce Department said in a statement.

    Two dozen other companies, government institutions and commercial organizations were also added to the list for supporting the procurement of items for the Chinese military, the Commerce Department said in a second statement.

    The newly-sanctioned companies specialize in artificial intelligence and facial recognition technology.

    China moves against Hong Kong

    The sanctions were announced after China made moves to enact a long-stalled national security law in the semi-autonomous territory of Hong Kong.

    The legislation, proposed in a bill submitted Friday, would outlaw secessionist and subversive activity as well as terrorism and foreign interference. Prior to the coronavirus crisis, last year Hong Kong was rocked by months of pro-democracy demonstrations that sometimes resulted in violent confrontations between police and protesters.

    Hong Kong pro-democracy lawmaker Lee Cheuk-yan said in a news briefing that the bill violates the "one country, two systems" framework guaranteed to the city by Beijing.

    They're trying to ban every organization in Hong Kong who dares to speak out against the Communist Party,'' he said, referring to the ruling political party in China.

    'Disastrous proposal'

    US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described the proposal as "disastrous."

    "The decision to bypass Hong Kong's well-established legislative processes and ignore the will of the people of Hong Kong would be a death knell for the high degree of autonomy Beijing promised," he said.

    The foreign ministers of the UK, Australia, and Canada also released a joint statement saying they were "deeply concerned" about the proposed legislation.

    The new sanctions come as tensions mount between the US and China. President Donald Trump has accused Beijing of covering up the origins of the coronavirus, which first appeared in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December last year.

    Recently, the US has increased its criticism of how China treats ethnic minorities in Xinjiang. Last October, lawmakers sanctioned 28 Chinese entities for their involvement in human rights violations in the region.

    Uighur activists and witnesses claim that China is trying to forcibly integrate the Muslim ethnic minority group. China has said it is providing vocational training and discouraging extremism. https://www.dw.com/en/us-sanctions-c...ons/a-53542199
