We have made the difficult decision to remove this post due to the highly triggering nature of it and as it has links to the actual content in the post and comments which break rule 9, and are very upsetting. The video is horrifying and we encourage you to make contact with the organisations mentioned by the commenter here: https://www.reddit.com/r/lgbt/comments/ptu8fp/comment/hdyh3cd/ This post has been locked as it is beginning to draw trolls, and advice on suitable organisations to contact has already been provided. We hope that they are able to intervene to protect the child as soon as possible.

This is horrific. And don't worry about asking for help here. I don't know about the laws in Iraq, but I'm guessing they won't do anything. You could contact [Rainbow Railroad](https://www.rainbowrailroad.org/). They are a non-profit from Canada. If it's about a kid in actual danger, I hope they'll help as soon as possible. But there's a lot of people asking for asylum because of Afghanistan. Edit: I also found the [Heartland Alliance](https://www.heartlandalliance.org/program/middle-east-and-north-africa/iraq/). I haven't heard of them before, but they've been active in Iraq since 2008. Maybe they could help.


PlusUltraKami

Thanks, I will email them immediately.


purple_deck

Send them a link to the video. They need to know how bad it is.


Half-Axe

Thank you for reaching out, making noise and taking action. You are a good person and I hope this kid is able to be helped.


ZzGift

I agree. It is very awesome that this person reached out for help.


purple_deck

Please, let us know if they write back or if there's development.

Rainbow Railroad does wonderful work, and when situations are dire like this they're usually able to move quite quickly. They're one of the charities that I donate to the most.


Droid_XL

Of course the organization called rainbow railroad is based in Canada. It always surprises me how much Canada lives up to the stereotype.

Holy fuck! Did the man lost his sanity?! Who, with a perfect sanity, would do that to a child?!


greedo10

There's the thread, religious extremism impedes your sanity


sokinabintali

Violence and abuse is really common in Iraq unfortunately, and most of the abusers get away with it very easily. Can’t wait to get out of this shithole

Damn, as if Christianity hasn’t historically treated queer people like absolute scum… get your islamaphobia out of here


No_Russian_29

Fuck all religion. An ingrained idea that there is a way everything “should” be always causes people to do messed up things. It unironically destroys your ability to free think, makes your brain broken. All religions do this. And as long as religion as the way it functions now it is a threat to the natural human condition of change, because it cannot change. Almost nothing about our species is definite and nothing about the world for that matter. It is perfectly moral to be anti religion. I personally am not going to blame a single one I am just going to blame religious philosophy as a whole, it’s outdated and cannot function in modern society.


Acanthaceae_Live

religion itself isnt the problem imo, its when people twist the words of the ones they claim to worship for an excuse to hate. im not religious myself but if i was, i disown anyone who uses religion as an excuse for homophobia.


SympathyMiddle

I am a gay trans person. As long as a religion is hell bent on destroying me i'll happily be "phobic" of it. That very much includes all bible stupidity too. Edit: accidental r-word


redheadheroine

There are many valid criticisms of religion but wow “religion of peace” is such a Fox News dogwhistle


SympathyMiddle

True it does. Sorry. It was my anger against religion


wetbagle320

Well glad to know you're still using slurs like the R-word aswell


SympathyMiddle

Shit sorry about that.


EllieBelly_24

Using the fact that someone hates you for no reason to hate them isn't any better. Break the fricken cycle dawg. And cut that r-word shit as well.


SympathyMiddle

Someone hating me just for existing shouldn't result in revenge, but in my case it results in fear. I am not afraid of arabs or people from different cultures and backgrounds. But I am afraid of ideologies based on hate.


M3xa9en5

That's disgusting of the father, makes me so mad to hear that about that poor kid.


SimPilotAdamT

Even worse when you hear the kid's voice. Sickening beyond belief.


M3xa9en5

It was disturbing but at the same time, heartbreaking, people really need to stop hurting their kids because of their sexuality! I'm dead serious


Eye_of-the_storm

You might want to reword that, terrific means really good


HmmYahMaybe

English sucks sometimes. Those words are way to similar to mean what they mean…


theinsideoutbananna

Terrific actually meant "terror inducing" originally but it's meaning shifted and eventually flipped.


HmmYahMaybe

Ohhhhhhhhh, that makes way more sense


izzayyy97

Some words like, “terrific” have one meaning. But a lot of times some native English speakers use that word in contradicting sort of way. I’ve heard many people, and I’ve probably done it too, say something like, “Wow! That’s terrific!!” Meaning something like, “Wow! That’s amazing!!” Or something similar to excitement. When it really means the opposite. :)


Krags

Just like "awesome"!


PlusUltraKami

I didn't notice that, I will edit the post.


slcouch

![img](emote|t5_2qhh7|548) Please let us know if you get intouch with someone for help.

I wish he was in the states so we could put the bastard in prison for the rest of his life. No one anywhere should be able to walk free after that.

OMG THAT IS HORRIBLE. GET THE COPS-

holy fuck just when i thought reddit homophobia was bad enough


naliedel

You have some great advice here. My heart is breaking. Hugs from a bi mom in the us.


slcouch

You're definitely an awesome human being for speaking up and being the voice that this kid needs.! I hope he gets help asap. I would give an award if I had one to give! ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|snoo) so I'll add this little guy instead. Haha![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|shrug)


droolius_ceaser

Just watched the video.... I feel oddly numb. That was horrifying. I hope that kid gets the help he needs. How can people be so delusional to believe that this is "righteous" behaviour that will get them into whatever version of heaven they believe in?


lanqG

Gender Identity, Sexual Orientation, Morality Laws Article 394 of Iraq’s penal code makes it illegal to engage in extra-marital sex, a violation of the right to privacy that disproportionately harms lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. Torture and Executions are also extremely common in Iraq. I don't think there's much people can do for that kid:(


SimPilotAdamT

I'm guessing they still haven't made it possible for LGBT marriage...... ):

Religion is poison.


goldfishkeepr

Islam and religions are not the problem, extremists are the problem. It’s still islamophobic to say “fuck Islam” even if you then say “not Muslims themselves.” Coming here and saying hateful things about religion does nothing to help this poor kid.


HilariousMistake

Don't you have any other sources as to if/how this is progressing somehow? Because this is horrible and I wish all the mercy in this world for that poor boy, but I couldn't find anything about it. Not that I'm doubting you in the slightest, I just need to know he's safe now!


PlusUltraKami

Thank you for your concern, some resources claim he is now in hospital, I will not update the post till I'm 100% sure!


HilariousMistake

Geez at least that!


Droid_XL

*ew* Not gonna watch that, I want to be able to eat food tonight


bardic-boy

That’s so terrifying. I’m so sorry to hear this happened. I really hope they can be helped 💛 and please stay safe.


pawixis

Fuck religion and fuck religious people. Only "good" religious people are the ones not imposing religion on their children, and I'm pretty sure there's not too many of them.


Rin_the_protogen

Someone need to call CPS


the_popes_fapkin

Yes. Iraq certainly has an active CPS with child marraiges and such


Commercial_Brick_309

I wish it was so simple over there, no authorities will help since being LGBT is criminalised there and no charities have the power to stop this. Hopefully that kid gets out of there somehow


Mike_Ock1

Sad what religion can do to ones brain.

Epicdudewhoisepic

I have no words.


chain_gun_murderhobo

If the kid can get out somehow and needs help be it financial, emotional, whatever just let us know OP. We can't do a ton from the internet but we all want desperately to help.


Acanthaceae_Live

oh.... oh my god..... what the hell did i just watch. that poor kid. i wish i could do anything to help him but i dont have money and im not even old enough to drive. that cunt that calls himself a father deserves everything hell has to offer. how can he treat his own kid like this? how does ANYONE treat any child like this, parent or not? that kid is gonna be traumatized for life, i dont know if he is or will be alive by the time someone finds him. how utterly horrible.
