Opinion in Uganda

I have thrashed to myself the bill so much that I am living in a cocoon.

What I mean, I have already convinced myself that the Bahati bill is not passing, because, in my view, it is very deeply flawed. But, I have to remember that, most likely it will pass. Because we Ugandans are deeply, instinctively homophobic. That is what we have been taught. That is how we reason.

Any opposition to the Bahati bill is being thrashed, and, people look at it and say, are you a homo? Big lil sis did me proud, and she is not having fun. Because she dared to write an opinion that was contrary. Question, doesnt anyone think? Must what the preacher say be correct? Must a person be bad because they are homosexual?

Here is an article in New Vision, written by one of the Members of our August Parliament, deeply decrying and blaming 'neo-colonialists'
See, us homosexuals cannot defend ourselves. When someone does, the immediate reaction is... homo!!! Or, as Princess put it, homosympathiser. And that person suffers the backlash.

Here is the article

Monday, 26th October, 2009           

By Margaret Muhanga

Africa will stay an enslaved continent as long as the Western world provide dime to the poor and hungry and propagates all their wishes.

Our beloved continent is embroiled in persistent poverty that is not about to end.

The dependency syndrome has increased to the extent that the elite who should direct the affairs of the country have betrayed the cause of our fore fathers and become spokespersons of Western ways.

October 23 was one of the worst days of my life when I woke up to read, with disbelief a one-and-a-half page press release in The New Vision titled; “Anti-homosexuality or anti-human rights Bill” by a coalition of civil society organisations on human rights and constitutional law.

What a tragedy for Africans who depend on others for a livelihood. The elite, including the women organisations, that sent this press release and paid handsomely for its publication, are slaves living under neo-colonialism. This is not their opinion or belief, it is their ‘sponsors’ who direct them what to do or say. What a disappointment we are to our society.

There is a quotation I came across that says “God made Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steven… ” This means, therefore, that any act that is done between people of the same sex is un-Godly. Let us not challenge God’s ways. If all of us were to become gay, where would the next generation come from? If spouses of these civil society activists turned gay, would they shout themselves hoarse in praise of their beloved ones’ sexual orientation? What if it were their children involved in this act, would you support and encourage them?

Beware of your actions today. Remember these homosexuals cannot reproduce. They must recruit, and they want our children. That is why they are getting public people like you civil society to present homosexuality as “normal” and acceptable.

They know that the next generation will one day be voters, and they will change the laws so that homosexuals can prey on children and not worry about breaking the law. Beware that it will be your daughter to show up with a female fiancé. It is not only from the religious point of view that Ugandans like David Bahat, MP Ndorwa West, has come up with a law against same sex union. A research I recently came across shows that the consequences of homosexual activity have significantly altered the delivery of medical care to the population in North America where homosexuality is widely practised.

With the increased incidence of sexually transmitted diseases, organisms in unexpected places, simple sore throat is no longer so simple.

Doctors must start asking their patients probing questions or they risk making a misdiagnosis. The evaluation of a sore throat must now include questions about oral and anal sex.

Doctors should also start asking about their patient’s sexual practices and consider how to treat anal cancer, rectal gonorrhea and other diseases.

In America, Human Herpes Virus 8 (called Herpes Type 8 or HHV-8) is a disease found exclusively among male homosexuals.

Researchers have long noted that men who contracted HIV through homosexual behaviour frequently developed a previously rare form of cancer called Kaposi’s sarcoma. Worse still after sometime, men who practise homosexuality get a leaking anus. This means, therefore, that they will be required to use nappies like babies to avoid soiling their clothes.

Are we ready as a country to risk these infections given our poor health services and lack of specialised treatment and human resource?

Ugandans must rise up and fight all sources of evil no matter how much money the West sends. Human dignity must be protected.
The writer is the woman MP, Kabarole

I love this quotation best. It shows how deeply fearful people are that I as a homosexual will take over their world, beautiful Uganda  "Remember these homosexuals cannot reproduce. They must recruit, and they want our children."

So help me the deities, how can I prove that I cannot make people gay? How can I prove to Ugandans that we homosexuals can never, ever take over Uganda?

It´s not hard to believe the depth of the shallowness regarding anti-LGBT ¨witness¨...afterall, we´re a people, no matter where we live, who have been slandered, made outcasts and abused endlessly through-out the ages up to RIGHT NOW! Gay Hate Crimes are being committed daily in LIVERPOOL (to a off duty Gay Policemen jumped by teeniebooper thugs) and Canada and The United States...Italy cranks death to ¨gays¨ out with regularity and the Pope covers the fact that most of his priest, bishops and cardinals are gay (celibate perhaps)...the point is that ignorance knows no borders but that FACT doesn´t change a thing...when people are terrorized or clergy, politicians or BEST FRIENDS instigate lies against LGBT there are deadly results...this woman, MP, Kabarole joins the ranks/mob of David Bahati, Nsaba Buturo, Henri Orombi and ¨the obsessed¨ Mr. Seempa (hardly a God loving person) in promoting fear and hate against others...these folks aren´t just sharing ¨personal opinions¨ they are condeming LGBT people to Hell...very dangerous words they spewout as they deceive (themselves and others)...they are irresponsible, feardriven and grossly unwise.

May it be, that homophobia is for african leaders a sexual envy between men, like racism between whites and blacks?

I´m constantly made aware that ¨actions have consequences¨ and quite often those who unjustly harm others risk the poisoning of their own physical, emotional and spiritual well-being (and those around them)...endlessly I see the results of viciousness directed toward others come back like a boomarang (of course the most clever of the deceivers run for the cover by blaming/shaming others and refuse to take ANY responsibility for their words/actions...the quality of their self-accountability is rotten at the core as they scramble to ¨save face¨ as eventually people like Nsaba Buturo and Ms. Kabarole MUST!)...it´s only a matter of time until fear will ¨fall away¨ as Princess is clever to note there is nothing to fear from LGBT (except the lies told about us)...meanwhile, *things* may get more ugly thanks to the LGBT fear/hate-mongering, lie spewing, accomplices both in Uganda and abroad...they feed on one another like vultures encountering lunch.

just a few small complaints about Ms. Muhanga's facts:

1) why would an evaluation of a sore throat involve questions about anal sex? perhaps Ms. Muhanga's mouth is connected to her anus, but I assure you, mine is not.

2) HHV-8 is not found exclusively in gay men. a quick search of medical research reveals that HHV-8 is found in about 3% of the general population.

3) Nor is Kaposi's Sarcoma found only in gay men. It does tend to affect men more often than women, regardless of the method of (homo- or heterosexual) transmission.

4) Anal sex does not cause anal leakage. Heterosexual couples also have anal sex. This has not led to a population of women wearing "nappies."
