Marlene Dietrich Wouldn't Tolerate This!

Gay rights activists in Morocco (one of Marlene Dietrich's favorite on-screen spots for picking up women -- in real life, I think she'd pick 'em up anywhere) are worried that the already limited rights of the country's gays and lesbians are being threatened anew by the Moroccan government's purported plans to "preserve citizens' ethics and defend our society against all irresponsible actions that mar our identity and culture". Frankly, I read the entire article and still don't know what the hell's going on over there (it took a turn for the convoluted around the halfway point), but it's another thing to get pissed off about, and you can never have enough of those.
