Why is this man being excoriated for pretending to be a Syrian lesbian on the internet.
Firstly if pretending to be a woman on the internet is a crime then are we not all guilty?
Oh wait that's just me (or 15 year old "Abigail" to be precise).
But secondly isn't the offence he has committed- creating a bogus identity in order to promote his politics- exactly what fraudster Rigoberta Menchu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for back in 1992?
