Sigh, we have to convince people that we are not sick, or mentally defective. [Can you imagine Leonardo da Vinci trying to convince people that just because he was homosexual, he was still a genius...]
Anyway, we are not all geniuses. But we certainly are not sick.
Why am I wandering around? Well, there was this letter from the monitor, which though factually inaccurate, I have to remember that it is 'positive'. A Ugandan's view from London!!
In response to the letter in Daily Monitor of January 9, “Gays innocent after all?,” I do not know why it has taken so long for the government and the religious leaders to realise that homosexuality is a biological defect. Gays are like babies born with more than the usual number of limbs or conjoined twins.
To some people, this could be classified as a curse but these are normal human beings. Hormones play a big role in determining sexual orientation. In the developed world, they have realised that hounding these people is a crime against humanity, hence the laws that protect homosexuals.
Instead of criminalising these people, the government should take a scientific approach to determine what makes these people different from everybody else. Criminalising gay people forces them underground, which predisposes them to risk of venereal diseases.
