Erdoğan's new enemy: the EU

Given the fact that Erdoğan is coming from a political tradition that needs to fight to maintain its existence, Erdoğan has become the lead fighter for his personal political agenda. When he became mayor of İstanbul, it was a good time for Erdoğan because many enemies surrounded him. As a good fighter, Erdoğan fought hard and won. When he became the prime minister it was not an easy time for him, but the Kemalist hard-liners in the military, the media, the judiciary and the universities created the perfect political environment for him to fight and assure his political career.

"Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" still lives in Turkey

A new roadblock is set to disrupt the LGBT struggle in Turkey as new legislation threatens to discipline gays in the military. Previously, coming out in the Turkish Armed Forces was a humiliating affair that required a soldier to admit to a "sickness" and was forced to submit to what rights group Human Rights Watch called, "humiliating and degrading examinations."

To prove their sexuality, Armed Forces Members would then document how they have been in the sexually passive position with photographic evidence that then could be used to stigmatize them. Essentially, members of the Turkish Armed Forces are asked to stay in the closet, or otherwise go through a humiliating process of official expulsion, similar to the recently dropped United States law, Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
