Transsexual and gay friend join ISIS to escape ‘persecution’ in Russia

Ah, out of the frying pan, into the fire?!?

Russian authorities have expressed fears for the lives of a transsexual man and his gay friend after they were reported to be heading to Syria captivated by Islamic State fundamentalist propaganda.

Dubbed the ‘battle trannies’ by the Moscow media, the two suspects Alexei T. and Viktor E – who prefers to be known as Viktoria and dresses as a woman – are accused of maintaining contacts with armed extremist groups.

Another police source Alexander Vinogradov said: ‘We would always be interested in stopping people from joining a terrorist organisation but in this case there is a double motive, as our information is that this would not be accepted if they managed to get all the way to Syria, and it is unlikely that they would live very long once their sexual orientation was revealed.’

He said that ISIS has been staging a non-stop campaign online to recruit new fighters from those who feel out of place but added it was unlikely they had transsexuals or homosexuals in mind when making the appeal.

No shit!
