Die Story um Fake-Amina aka Gay Girl from Damaskus wird immer absurder. Die hatte nämlich auf der Website Lez get real damit begonnen, über die Aufstände in Syrien zu berichten, und deren angebliche Betreiberin stellte sich jetzt als der 58jährige Bill Graber aus Ohio heraus und sowohl Tom MacMaster als auch Bill Graber haben als Fake-Lesbierinnen miteinander geflirtet, ohne vom jeweiligen Hoax zu wissen.
Just one day after the author behind a popular Syrian lesbian blog admitted to being a married, American man named Tom MacMaster, the editor of the lesbian news site Lez Get Real, with the tagline “A Gay Girl’s View on the World,” acknowledged that he is also a man. “Paula Brooks,” editor of Lez Get Real since its founding in 2008, is actually Bill Graber, 58, a retired Ohio military man and construction worker who said he had adopted his wife’s identity online. Graber said she was unaware he had been using her name on his site. […]
He said his connection to Amina was purely coincidental and started when Amina commented on a post on the Lez Get Real site in February. It “was a major sock-puppet hoax crash into a major sock-puppet hoax.” In the guise of Paula Brooks, Graber corresponded online with Tom MacMaster, thinking he was writing to Amina Arraf. Amina often flirted with Brooks, neither of the men realizing the other was pretending to be a lesbian.
