Bernardine Evaristo debunks #Homophobia in #Africa ..’ – #In14Ways #BernardineEvaristo #MercyfulGrace

Anthony Everest – More @ https://MercyfulGrace.blog

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 – after researching Religious Trauma Syndtome: Dr Marlene Winell). 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 on Religious Abuse.

#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 self-righteous hypocritical, closeted sexual conquest’s with aggressive male-volent, projections, littered with 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 triads 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 on with indignation, now, rolling in their graves; with 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 when the Eve gene preceeds white Jesus.

So, tell me. What has Africa resolved and achieved with this illogical, antiquated-thinking, hypocrisy, denial and avoidable ignorance?

Africa, let people be. Let God be God. Stop trying to change folks forcefully. Even by biblical standards; Abraham the father of faith had whores, all the way to Solomon, the wisest King of his time.

God is love. God loves a good misfit from Moses to Saul. He used them exceedingly well to move mountains. He revels in the foolish to confound the wise, so that He can take glory, time after time. Worry about your own sins. Humans are just humans and have always been.

Homophobia in Africa is a real concern for me as a humanitarian. Love is not toxic masculinity.

Many of these homophobes consume lgbtq+ goods and services most of their lives; yet remain perputually ignorant of the fact, that they do. From your Tom Ford to your Louis Vuiiton. They are all lgbtq+ products. So think again before look foolish. When you look at life in black and white you stop seeing rainbows.

South Africa’s pro lgbtq+ rights have come a long way and I hope the rest of Africa wakes up to follow suite.

The same anti lgbtq+ bible the average homophobe justifies their cognitive dissonace, from; buttressed with tyranic homophobic antics also says, girls should be stoned to death on their wedding nights if they are not virgins, by their husbands. Only to further lament in Ecclesiastes 7:20:

Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins.

So, again – “Worry about your own sins”.

Written by Aremuorin

New York Times, Jim Farber – wrote about a new age of ‘male codes’ on the new “pop cultural norms”, around bromanhood.

It is a very well researched piece and thought provoking too. I for one, wasted no time to find out more.

I have always found my orientation un traditional, topical, chin-wagging, or mis understood. This gave me some nuggetts of wisdom for clarity.

Just like, or unlike, me, from a traditional view point, or out of curiosity for interest to dismiss or educate, read more here.

Without my trust in him, I would not be where I am today.

Giuseppe Nkansah, Interview #In14Ways – https://MercyfulGrace.blog

10. Is modelling a great job?

For everyone, it is different. On my side, I have never had complaints.

Actually… yeah !!! The worst side in the modelling job is when the team aren’t on time.

I love when they style me. Make ups? baah, hard to find the right make up artist. In many pictures you see, I do direct myself, actually, I also direct the photographer, to make sure he has the right angle.

I can be annoyed most of the times but you need to remember you are the image.

I do remember my second shoot I had in year 2012, we spent 11 hours just for 3 collections.

I will never forget it. But the good side was they brought food. Without food, I can’t pose in front the camera.

I love it not just because I love pictures but I have had the chance to meet great designers.

If you want to ask me about how much they do pay me, sorry it’s confidential.

11. Next big plan
I love surprises. Trust me.

You better wait and see.

12. Advise for newbies
Dreams and Visions can take time but it doesn’t mean you need to stop believing in yourself. You have the power to control your Vision, you should not give up, no matter what. Work hard and Never forget to put God First.

13. Whats your weakness?
To be honest,

I feel shy most of the times
Especially talking in public, and this is one of my weaknesses

14. Say a prayer for us, all and humanity

May the Lord help us to achieve our dreams because everything is possible.

The #Vulnerable and #Sick need #help ..’ – #In14Ways #Jobcentre #MercyfulGrace

Written by Anthony Everest

Despicable:

Who wants to work when they are sick and who wants to hire them, anyways? I mean the legal #ramifications are just insidious.

Not to talk of #jeopardizing vulnerable lives and their well-being. I assume this is some quota system they are trying to merit by de-sentizing people to this #despicability. What a catastrophic #mess.

No wonder why people are commiting suicide over this. The stresses are major. It is so sad. I have heard horror stories bewildering. If there is enough to fund avoidable, unneeded, forseeable wars, then; sure we can.

Of set this deficit, wherever it’s disguised, against the super wealthy; to help those who need the help and those who are vulnerable ..’

This jarring rhetoric was pushed on our Paralympic heroes, taking away, their disability lifelines attemptedly – before a major a kick-off and petition. So much for gratitude for sacrifice.

How insensitive and #cruel. Here is what a British Jobcentre said, sick, or disabled folks; should say about their vulnerabilities. #Lie – #In14Ways

The #Irony Of Self #Righteousness ..’ – #In14Ways #MercyfulGrace

In my old post I delved into the LGBTQ vs Christain Parents, and found myself repeatedly, addending the article. Had to make an editorial decision to write a follow up instead.

This topic is an old rehash but probably more eloquent this time around: The moment when bigots demand love & respect but can’t seem to give it in return. Where’s the joke in the irony: Cognitive dissonance personified.

The state has a responsibility to all it’s subjects not just Jews, Harikrishnas or Christians. Let go of that bigotry, self entitlement and delusion. Love does not exclude.

Britain is a multicultural society and not a monolithic nation. There is a reason why Jesus came from the House of Whores (Rahab) and his best friend (Mary Magdalene) was a whore.

He in fact, appeared to the whore first, before his disciples when He rose from the dead after his cricifiction. The Son of God. The one whom; without nothing was made. How ironic.

I feel child psychologists and educators should take Christain parents views, in as they should, holistically, coupled with extensive research, data and professional insights to mitigate a solution within the school curriculum to address this complex issue age appropriately, with care.

A blanket religious view won’t solve problems relevent to today’s norms concerning youths in this cyber overload information age.

Humans have evolved. Therefore, we need new coping mechanisms unlike before. That’s life.
