Malawi President Doesn't Want People To Fight For The Gays

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMadonnaLGBT


What would Madonna think of this??

Malawi president and Africa Union Chair Bingu wa Mutharika is speaking out, saying donors to the country should focus on children's rights instead of fighting for gay rights.

During the African Child commemoration, Mutharika said:

“The role of protecting children is for everyone. I want religious leaders and civil society groups to speak on the rights of children, not a man marrying a man. Donors should stop assisting confuses people (gays). Why fight for gay rights instead of children’s rights?”

Why not fight for both??

    But if you fight for gays they'll tell you how to fix that nasty mustache.

  2. 2

    The entire continent of Africa is a complete shithole. This story is no surprise. Africa is going nowhere fast.

  3. 3

    Who cares what Madonna would think of this.

    Why support the kids if they're just going to be raised to hate and kill gays?

  5. 5

    I am not homphobic but fuck the gays, kids are more important no offense. Perez needs to stop this gay rights shit, yes they desrve everything straight people have but life isnt perfect. Somethings to people are more important, for example people find racism more important to resolve than say gay rights. So Yea Help the KIDS :)

  6. 6

    Um. I think Madonna would agree. Why fight for gay rights when children dont even have rights? Yea you could fight for both but wouldn't you want to put everything you got into our future?? Children's rights are way more important then gay rights… Hands down, especially in a third world country. I'd hope most gays aren't as selfish.

  7. 7

    Damn he is nasty looking. Don't act like Madonna has a poitical power in this country.

  8. 8

    Africoons hate gays with their big donkey doinks. AIDS!

  9. 9

    Why fight for gay rights when children dont even have any??? this makes no sense. I really am glad that the president has his priorities straight && isnt trying to be politically appeasing so he wont end up on sites like this. Id hope the gay community would agree & not sound as selfish as this post sounds.

    Are children people? YES! Are homosexuals people? YES! Civil rights are for EVERYBODY. "Everybody" excludes NOBODY!

    it would be a nightmare if he was gay because he's nasty looking, no man would go gay for him.

  12. 12

    Do like Perez - join NAMBLA - then you can fight for both!

    Eat da poo poo

    I fucking hate people. There are no limits on what to fight for. BULL SHIT excuses to 'punish' gays.

  15. 15

    I think it's horrible that we still need to fight for the rights of children and the rights of gays. I mean, this is 2010! Aren't we smart enough to see that everybody deserves the same rights?

  16. 16

    Ya maybe because children can't fight for themselves, and there fight is one for survival, where as the gays are fighting for a personal right…you just sound selfish and stupid.

  17. 17

    Good for him. Children should be their number 1 priority, whether the gays like it or not.

  18. 18

    and also where does he say not too? he's saying prioritize..they are children!

  19. 19

    Re: ammmber – Come on now, if you saw a 5 year old kid falling off a cliff and he/she reaches out for you,and then you have a grown gay man reaching his han out for you, which one would you pull up if you had only 1 hand? Gosh dont be such a prick children need morehelp than adults, adults can take care of ourselves but children need to be fed, clothes, and taken care of. A gay person who i wuld supect to be an adult knows to do that. So i say help the kids first, then the gays. Both need help, but Africa doesnt tolerate homos for some reason.

    If you read between the lines, I think I hear a man who has been inundated regarding one special interest group lately, and it sounds like he would like the focus to shift to helping children, as they are in such dire need in Malawi. The two aims aren't exclusive, but if you look after the children, you will be looking after any future gays by default, who are projected (in males) to be only 3 to maybe 10% of any given population. If the children are given a hand up, future Malawi will have educated new adults who can and will pull Malawi into the future bringing in development, infrastructure and resources, all of which will help EVERYBODY raise their standard of living, the 90 to 97% of straights, who count too, along with the gays.

    For a second I thought that was Bobby Brown after a week-long binge!

  22. 22

    Why not support ALL RIGHTS? :-/

  23. 23

    I've always found that the people who are most against homosexuality are the ones who practice it in the closet. That Malawi president scumbag is gay.

  24. obama says – reply to this


    why should we give a shit what they're doing/fighting for in Africa. Don't we have bigger fish to fry in our own jacked-up country? Really, who gives a shit?

  25. 25

    Is this just a hoot. If this were any other white male, especially a republican male, this fat slob would call them every name in the book but he lets this guy go mainly because he's black. Way to go fatso. Once again showing your true colors. Remember friends. It is not cool, marvi, fantastic or rad to be gay. It is an abomination. Please aspire to be more than this fat slob Perez

  26. 26

    Not that I don't think gay rights aren't important because they are very very important. But children's rights will ALWAYS be more important. Gays can fight for themselves,children don't have that voice. They can't fight for their own rights,they are at the mercy of those speaking for them. While I do think both issues are important and should be addressed, if they have to prioritize,it's children's rights all the way.

  27. 27

    Re: njpaul129 – You're gay and you aspire to be a fat slob like Mario? Faboosh!

  28. 28

    Why does everything have to be categorized? Human rights pretty much sums it all up for me. One group isn't more or less important than the other. ALL rights are important- different, but still important.

    Re: Mad Dog – I know right! Madonna adopted a kid from there and made a shitty documentary and now she is the savior of Malawi?!

  30. 30

    We should fight against any form of social injustice wherever we are.
    Because if they can treat these gays so badly, who knows who else they are mistreating. And the money we donate, they could easily abuse it and use it for their own personal gains. So fight against bigotry in all forms.

  31. 31

    Gays don't want equality.
    They want to be put ahead of the "collective group", and be "special"' and have special laws just for them, "hate laws"…
    why doesn't Joran vad der Nut have 'hate crimes' charged to him?
    Oh that's right, two white heterosexual people that have money, not the right victim.
    Our politicians are "The Elite", they think that deserve only the very best healthcare, while they stuff this nationalized crap down our throats. What made this country great was I could go to the Mayo Clinic and have the same surgeon as Ted Kennedy or Ronald Reagan.
    Such hubris. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

  32. 32

    What would Madonna think of this? I'm sure if it conflicted with her own special interest in the country, she'd have a lot to say about it, but I won't hold my breath for another statement from her. Let's not bring her name up everytime Malawi is mentioned. She doesn't run the country, and for the most part, the people and the polticians there could give a shit about her.

    if you want to argue gay rights, open a gay rights blog. i came here for celeb stuff, not your latest pro-gay rights rant. more reasons why your blog is losing traction and value quickly.

  34. 34

    Gay or not remember….The Children come first, let's not forget.

  35. 35

    Yeah, kids are the future…….inmates. Yeah yeah yeah, I for one want the Gays the get married. Specifically, I want Perez to get married and then divorced - followed by losing 75% of his estate, alimony, child support, etc.

    Africa is sent billions every year in aid. Because of inept, corrupt + ignorant leaders they continue to suffer.
    There is no need to protect one group of sufferers over another. Despite what u r told, there is plenty o' $ to go around if it was spent wisely.
    BTW- Bamfuk629 or whatever your name is, sorry but U R HOMOPHOBIC!

    Africa and their Corruptacrats in power. What’s knew?
    Now America is in this same predicament from the very top in the White House on down, with all his czars, that circumvent even our weak-willed Congress, to stand firm for the rule of law of our Constitution.
    Now America is in this same predicament from the very top in the White House on down, with all his czars.
    The rev-O-lution has begun.
    Just read that census workers are being met with twice the normal reports of unprecedented anger from the people in their homes, all over the US…with regards to unnecessary, intrusive, personal questions being asked by the cencus people. The only question, defined in our Constitution is, "How many people live in the house?
    Answer: Two Americans.
    Throw the bums out.

    The government in Africa is corrupt, the fact Mutharika suggested people should not fight for gays instead fight for children speaks in volumes. Africa is not the like United states just because you complain about gay rights in africa does not mean the government will listen. In addition to their strong dislike of gays their culture is very very rich in the traditionial forms of marriage between a man and women. I honestly, in my opinion do not see gay rights being passed in Africa in the near future.

    madonna could buy this country and rule as queen. that shit is dirt poor and the "president" looks like bobby brown in 10 years.

  41. 41

    I can't stand this ludacris "equallity" movement gays are trying to shove down our throats. The only thing they can not do is marry. Gays act like we have them working on plantations as slaves, getting sold as objects and being ripped from their families. In the middle of the worst oil spill in history, a war, a recession boardering on a depression and terrosist attacks going on all around the world they still want to be the star of the show and orgin of focus.

  42. 42

    Guys so many of you miss the point (I am African). This is a classic case of mis direction. Everybody loves children but not everyone loves Gays. So shift the attention away from Gay rights - to a safer issue. The fact is that Mutharika is just another African despot living off the goodwill of the West. Yes USA you are paying for one of the biggets palaces in the world, motorcades and child abuse like you can't believe. Children have no rights in Malawi - nobody does unless they are part of the political elite. Stop giving aid to this pig and all the rest of his ilk.

  43. 43

    Women still fight for their basic rights in Africa and you moan about the gays ?
    Go fuck yourself Perez.

  44. 44

    Sexy snout, nose, I mean.

  45. 45

    Lets pull all money out of his loser country and send him a message to, "Eat da PooPoo!"

  46. 46

    You can't fight for both according to him. Gay rights are in violation of children's rights. This is so ridiculous. Once gay people do have equal rights people will regret statements like this.

    This is such bullshit. Everyone realizes that we should prioritize children's issues: that ending children involvement in armed combat is a bigger issue than gays being allowed to be with one another, as is child trafficking or the lack of primary education. These are all BIGGER issues, we know, and nobody is disagreeing! However, that doesn't mean that people who are donating their help cannot turn around and say "what the fuck" when a government actively oppresses a homosexual couple. And that is the KEY difference with these two issues. The Malawian government is ACTIVELY oppressing homosexuals: they are spending funds on placing them in jail. On the other hand, the main reason children are oppressed and denied basic rights in many African countries, is due to poverty and corruption. The only way we can help children, is through action and funding; however, the best thing to do with homosexuals, is for the government to do nothing–just butt out of their business!

    Why don't we just turn this issue on its head? If Mutharika is so interested in helping childrens' rights, than why is his government so interested in putting the funds into jailing a homosexual couple for years, when they could be putting those funds towards childrens' rights?

  52. 52

    just give everyone their rights!

  53. 53

    Dude, run your country in a way that you don't need to tell people which of YOUR injustices they should fight against first.

    Just stupid.
