Africa is well lit with controversy vehemently on sexuality. Some primitive ideology permits that narrow minded view where ignorance is partly king. Bernardine’s article is refreshing.
Nigeria for instance criminalises the lgbtq+ community for 14yrs if convicted in the act between consenting adults, but will gladly force marry a 13yr old girl into marriage with a 40 year old grown man without remorse.
It’s hypocritical to the best of my reasoning of understanding. It’s illogical. Where is the hypocrisy and where is the freewill? After all, love does not manipulate other’s freewill.
That hate in your heart does not belong to me. You can keep it for no one else for your sakes’ ..’ – Aremuorin
I have always maintained Africa’s irrational, traditional homophobia, is misplaced. This article is lit with facts away from religious abuse & cultural ignorance. About time, we start re – educating ourselves.
#Listen: God is love. I am pro #love. An avid friend, confident & supporter of the Lgbtq+ community and it’s environs worldwide. Get used to it & worry about your own sinful #hypocrises.
Toxic Masculinity, Self Hate & Homophobic triads does not make you a man. Love is not #adversarial. The personification: of love, is love.
Culture is not set in stone. Otherwise, we’d still be ridding donkeys to Jerusalem and burning witches at the stake.
Here is the irony. The self-hating, in denial, closeted lgbtq+ communities, are self-demonising, and also being demonised with rhetorics of fear, mis-education & shaming antics.
Yet, it does not stop their closeted sexual conquest’s, aggressive male-volent, projections, or promiscuity. It only drives them further underground with prevalent risks to more undisclosed STD’S or HIV cross infections, between their (multiple) sexual partners and spouses.
Straight folks, by far; are not homophobes. It might gross them out mildly, in thoughts. End off. They don’t go on a homophobe, witch-hunt, anarchy triad of persecution of the lgbtq+ community. They are too involved thinking of getting laid by the opposite sex. Those who do are simply self-hating & self-projecting.
There was a time that the killing of twins was acceptable in Africa, just like the burning of witches at the stake in the west. I bet they all look stupid, now, rolling in their graves; in their ignorance.
Why is Africa always the last to know? Just like some Africans still believe Jesus is white and still waiting for him to come and save them from their sins.
So, tell me. What has Africa resolved and achieved with this illogical, antiquated-thinking, hypocrisy, denial and avoidable ignorance?
