For some reason, I keep getting into problems, asking questions which I should not ask.
Anyway, it started with a letter in the Monitor Newspaper. Someone was giving advice about a disease called 'balanitis', an infection of the head of the penis, far as I could judge. [shhh, Princess, shut your eyes]
The gentleman giving the advice is an HIV/AIDS counselor, and, here is part of his advice.
A concerned man can ask how to prevent Balanitis. …
Heterosexual young boys and old ones visit a doctor to check whether you have thrush. The outcome can be good if you are diagnosed and treated early. …
Willy Bikokye Kafeero, HIV/Aids counsellor, Makerere University
So, me being gay, (that is, homosexual), I had a question. Luckily enough, the guy had left an email address on his letter to the newspaper.
So, I e-mailed him, and waited for an answer. Who would like to get an infection of the head of the penis? [Eyes shut, I said, put fingers in the ears, PRINCESS!]
Here is my (very polite) email
thanks for your good advice on preventing Balanitis. I noticed that you gave advice to heterosexual young boys and old ones,
'Heterosexual young boys and old ones visit a doctor to check whether you have thrush. '
I am homosexual, what about me? Am I not at risk of balanitis?
The answer was not long in coming. Here
Greetings from William
I do not intend to advice some one who can't identify him self. Much as you're gay .
Pliz note that its 100% illegal before God and your nation Uganda in case your coming from Uganda .
Read the constitution of Uganda you have no room to exercise your business much as you call rights
NOTE But note that your rights are not absolute to the community
PLIZ READ THE BIBLE
PLIZ when God created a man called Adam , He created a wife called Eva but not Adams and Evas
Ok. So, I went ahead and read the bible. And the constitution, and all the other things he told me to read about balanitis. Maybe I got the spelling wrong. Seems as if there was no mention of this loathsome disease.
But I sent him a polite thank you note.
Thank you William.
I am grateful for the knowledge
