A Question of Consenting to Sex: Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2023 the Text


Two or more adults meet, like each other, and decide to have sex. Seems like a very normal thing.

Not if they are Kuchus in Uganda. The Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2023 stands in the way.
Reading through the text of the Bill 2023 and the Act 2023 can impress one on the depths of ignorance that Ugandan heterosexuals have about gay sex. A good dose of high school education on sex and sexuality should cure ignorance.
Unfortunately, the real problem is prejudice.

One is never adult enough to consent to ‘Homosexual’ sex, according to the text of Anti-Homosexuality Bill and Act 2023.
The underlying sense is that in homosexual sex, BECAUSE it is homosexual sex, there is an aggressor (the offender) and there is a victim. ALWAYS. That is why the preamble admits, all same sex sex is supposed to be outlawed in God’s Holy Land, Uganda.
The sense of ‘victimhood’ and victimising is also very strong.
We are normal human beings, with normal emotions, engaging in an act of intimacy that we willingly consent too (with or without the consent of the State. And why should the State be involved, for goodness’ sake?)

Consent (to sex) is not a defence.
What does that statement mean?
And why does the State even have to come into our mutual deal to have some fun together? The Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023 of Uganda baldly states;


6.    Consent to sexual act is no defence

The consent of a person to commit a sexual act shall not constitute a defence to a charge under this Act.


The Anti-Homosexual Act, 2023 also strips certain adults of the right to have sex. They cannot consent to having sex with me, as adult human beings.

Under the ‘Aggravated Homosexuality’ part of the Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2023; which already entitles me the Death Penalty as a Serial Offender the following embellishments  would earn me the Death Penalty.



 (e)   the offender is a person in authority over the person against whom the offence is committed;

“person in authority” means a person who is charged with the duty or responsibility for the health, welfare or supervision of a person


Does it mean that being ‘in authority’ robs them of ability to consent to sex is permanently?


(f)    the person against whom the offence is committed is a person with a disability or suffers a disability as a result of the sexual act

Helpfully, in the preliminaries, “disability” is helpfully defined.


“disability” means a substantial limitation of daily life activities caused by physical, mental or sensory impairment and environment barriers resulting in limited participation;


A very broad, all encompassing definition. If I am caught having sex with a ‘disabled’ person, I get the Death Penalty. I am the offender, they are the ‘victim’.


·         Does a ‘person with disability’ (in Uganda,) have no ability to have sex?

·         Or the ‘person with disability’ has no ability to consent to sex?

·         Or the ‘person with disability’ cannot be LGBTQ+ or homosexual? That seems to be the underlying assumption. They are disabled, they have no sexuality.


(g)    the person against whom the offence is committed is a person with mental illness, …


Mentally challenged adults cannot consent to have sex? Or the state permanently reserves the right of the mentally challenged adult to sex? Or is it that the mentally challenged adult should first petition the State for the right to have sex consensually? ‘Mental illness’ is a very broad category.
The law is a wonderful ass.


(h)    the person against whom the offence is committed is of advanced age;

‘advanced age’ as defined in the Act;

Adults older than 75 years of age


Apparently, our MPs believe advanced age robs one of the ability to have or consent to sex, or even be gay!

The psychology of victimhood demands a victim, (above are all examples of ‘victims’) of my heinous person, me the homosexual who did the victimisation. The Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023 even defines the victim of homosexuality…


“victim of the offence” means—

(b) a person suffering from mental illness or any other form of disability against whom the offence of aggravated homosexuality has been committed


(a) is the child victim, (b) is the victim of rape…, at least as commonly defined.

Ugandans have a unique take of the English language, especially with regard to what they call ‘homosexuality’.
It is all a bit of madness. Ignorance, a heavy dose of disinformation, misinformation and sheer big headed prejudice is the colour of that legislation.

Ugandan kuchus are in a hopeless legal hell.
