Why is it so important for Nigeria, Uganda and now, Malawi to squander public resources in the repression of homosexuals and lesbians citizens within these African nations? It is just astonishing that some African nations focus on the persecution of homosexuals, gays and lesbians, instead of the more important focus on continental development.

Why is it that political and religious leaders in these nations seem to see or interpret homosexual and lesbians sexual preferences and practices as if more of existential threats and or, inimical to the pursuits of health, wealth and happiness than say, malaria, AIDS, unemployment, unclean water, broken and decrepit public infrastructures?

I am a heterosexual male and I do not believe that my sexual preference makes me remarkable.

Besides, I also believe in the Human Rights of all persons regardless of such persons’ sexual preferences. I, We, Nigerians, Ugandans, South Africans, Malawians, Americans or anyone for that matter, do not have to have the same sexual interests or preferences as a basis or predicate for advocating the rights of others, others, who are unlike us.

I strongly believe that Nigerians, South Africans, Ugandans and Malawians and others, should be able to advocate the rights of homosexuals and lesbians citizens amongst us, even if we are decidedly heterosexuals. Just the same way in which we may be able to recognize the rights of others to practice their choice of preferred religion, even if we ourselves are of a different religious faith or are faithless, agnostic or atheists ourselves. We ought to be able to accept homosexuals, gays and lesbians without making value judgments or some sorts of dogmatic and judgmental moral condemnations of gays and lesbians, based upon or predicated on our moral certainty or religious “superiority”

I am quite at a loss when I listen the vehemence and stridency, with which some Nigerians, some South Africans, some Ugandans, some Malawians etc, talk, discuss, and in fact, attack gays and lesbians within our nations.

I have no idea. The Ugandan government is in the process of passing a law that makes homosexuality a crime punishable by death, It's like are we going forward or backward?

We are at war,most of us are unable to understand that.

The author is right there is more important issues in Africa than homosexuality,his article is an example of such loss of time.

Im sorry and i don't want to offend anyone,but homosexuality have no place amongst african/black societies.Our societies have always forbidden this practice.And please don't give me individual example like "gatekeepers" or "vodu priest",im talking about the whole society in general who have never and do not accept homosexuality.

On the other side,European society have always accept that thing,it was even encouraged,it was christianity who outlawed this thing,but now that chritiandom is falling the white man can live it's love for freaky things openly.And it's all good,if want to do so.

Now,they have no right to come in our countries and say to us that we are "homophobic".This is your thing not our thing,no matter what they and their zombie negroes can say.We can't cry because they rob us of our spiritualities,our morals and on the other hand say it's cool to be gay,because what you are witnessing is cultural imperialism.

Many european nations are working to ban islamic veil,the burqua.In all objectivity they have the right to do this,because they are defending their culture.And i can tell you that they view african polygamy as something disgusting,they want to end that stuff too.And here again they have the right.But then,how in the hell they come in our lands and tell us what is good and what is evil?

To sum up,european have the right to outlawed things that are not europeans.And Nigeria, Uganda and Malawi have the right to banished things that they consider un-african!

Im against gay bashing,but this is not a reason to let this cultural imperialism goes on.
