a term for a secretly-homosexual person who has already been looked down on, hated, or disliked for his views, opinions, or actions by people around him (thus he has been "put in jail") and is in a situation in which if he admits he is a homosexual, he will be or is afraid he will be hated or be treated even worse he is treated or despised now.
Mustapha al-Khalil (fictional person) is a 27 year old Saudi Arabia author/activist. Though loved by a few, he is well hated by many, especially his own Saudi countrymen, for his opinions concerning the role of Islam in Saudi Arabian and other Middle eastern societies (He believes that, ideally, Islam should have little if NO role in public society and if religion be desired, people should be educated about the beliefs and existence of other faiths with the freedom to choose and practice.), relationship of Arab nations with Israel (He believes that his nation of Saudi Arabia should have diplomatic relations with Israel.)and hates the Islamic customs in which women wear the hejab/burka/abayas. (He thinks that these religious customs in particular are unnecessary and just plain wrong for women. He hated the fact that his mother and sisters wore this.) so, again, he is well hated in Saudi Arabia, the Arab world and by Muslims all around the world. Another thing about Mustapha is that he is sexually attracted to young men like himself and he knows it, but he refuses to come out about his sexuality. Mustapha is not in the closet. Mustapha is in the jailhouse.
