God ladies we all have bad days and think we have it bad and of course we're all justified in feeling down now and again but spare a thought for Armina, a blogger and gay woman who has been kidnapped. She blogged about being gay in Syria, a country where it's almost unheard of to be gay. And last night she was seized by three armed men in the street and driven away somewhere. It doesn't bear thinking about what she might be going through. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/ju ... -kidnapped And here's her blog http://damascusgaygirl.blogspot.com/

kind of put things into prospective doesn't it. i guess we don't think how lucky most of us are to have the freedom to express ourselves in which ever way we want to hope that she will ok and be returned to her family safe and sound

That poor girl. Imagine living in a place where you are persecuted for just being the person you were born. We are so lucky in so many respects living in our society. I hope Armina is released safely and quickly.

Considering I read the Daily Mail purely for trash articles, I don't really know what to make of that one.
