I might oppose such legislation in my home country, but I don't think it is the place of foreigners to tell Ugandans how to run their country. Let Uganda be Uganda.
Of course, me being me, I was not happy at that kind of complacency.
So, me being me, I lashed out. Furiously. I am sorry. I dont actually have the patience for someone to give me empty excuses... We are all residents of this small world.
Here was my comment.
Funny, I am a Ugandan, desperately worried because of this bill in parliament. If it passes, which most likely it will, I and my partner will face life imprisonment, or death, once caught.
Is it suprising that I dont mind anyone, even a 'foreigner' speaking out for me? Especially when I cannot speak out myself in my country about this bill?
I used to like Political correctness until I realised that life does not follow its rules. My country mates plan to kill me, and, you fear to say no, because you dont think you as a foreigner should comment?
Happened in Nazi Germany. For Jews, and homosexuals. Happened in Rwanda as recently as 20 years ago.
When, I pray, do you as a 'foreigner' plan to challenge my murderers that they have gone beyond the pale of humanity? When I am dead?
Do you really think that will help?
Probably, by the time this blogger posts this post, the person would have already deleted the comment.
