The insanity seems to spread like wildfire in Uganda:
Anger follows alleged gang rape and murder of lesbian campaigner International footballer Eudy Simelane was apparently sexually assaulted and tortured before being killed three years ago. Human rights campaigners have warned of an "epidemic" of brutal homophobic attacks in South Africa after the murder and alleged gang rape of a lesbian activist. Noxolo Nogwaza was killed last month after what appeared to be a so-called "corrective rape", an increasingly common crime in which men rape lesbians to "turn" them straight or "cure" them of their sexual orientation....
Is it something in the water? Raping someone so that they ‘turn’? So, if a bunch of guys takes turns anally violating another man, he’ll become gay? The sickening stupidity of this is frightening. I’d be willing to bet the rent that this xenophobic garbage wasn’t nearly so prevalent prior to the missionaries spewing their cautionary fables over the cultural landscape and enforcing them at gunpoint.
The vacuous homily that all a lesbian woman needs is a good penis to change her sexual orientation is ludicrous at the very least, and incredibly sexist and self-absorbed (read: sexual sociopath) at the worst. It speaks of a middle-school mentality that’s barely forgivable in children, and an offense to all of civilization in an adult.
Rape is, in my book, one of the highest crimes one individual can commit on another, rating right up there with pedophilia and murder. The violation of another’s sexual autonomy is a savage scar across the psyche that wreaks havoc on us all in the long term, and dark night terrors on the victim, likely for life. It is terrorism, short and simple.
And it should not be allowed. Ever. Period. The end. And the peddlers of this trash should be prosecuted to the highest extent of any law anywhere.
The hidden shame of the source of this evil is (no surprise here) Christianity, followed quite closely by the other two monotheisms (Judaism got this entire sick ball rolling in the first place). Women are subjugated in all their tales, and the consistent lie that homosexuality is unnatural (the observance of nature quite belies that claim). I do not blame religion itself: religion is a construct by which obsessive crazy people give themselves a free pass to indulge their sociopathic tendencies.
So let’s play the blame game: I personally blame these fucktards:
KAMPALA, Uganda — Last March, three American evangelical Christians, whose teachings about “curing” homosexuals have been widely discredited in the United States, arrived here in Uganda’s capital to give a series of talks.
The theme of the event, according to Stephen Langa, its Ugandan organizer, was “the gay agenda — that whole hidden and dark agenda” — and the threat homosexuals posed to Bible-based values and the traditional African family.
For three days, according to participants and audio recordings, thousands of Ugandans, including police officers, teachers and national politicians, listened raptly to the Americans, who were presented as experts on homosexuality. The visitors discussed how to make gay people straight, how gay men often sodomized teenage boys and how “the gay movement is an evil institution” whose goal is “to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity.”
Now the three Americans are finding themselves on the defensive, saying they had no intention of helping stoke the kind of anger that could lead to what came next: a bill to impose a death sentence for homosexual behavior.
So you wander into a cesspit of ignorance and stupidity, fan the flames, ignite the villagers and hand them pitchforks, and then you assholes feign surprise there was violence? I’ll bet there are crackheads on the streets who have more sense. Or brains. And really, what qualified these asswipes anyways? I’ve tended to notice, that if you just slap on a title under the guise of religion, somehow that lends it more credence than it should.
Had I a say, we’d lock these fucks up and throw away the key. I can almost forgive the Ugandans (almost, but not quite) for being undereducated morons discriminating against their fellow human beings, but these fuckagelicals were sent to decent (one supposes) schools, raised in a country where the living standards are astronomically different than Uganda’s, and here they go stirring the pot and fanning the flames of raging sexual xenophobia.
It makes me physically ill sometimes, it does.
Till the next post, then.
