Boo! Nigeria Passes Horrific Anti-Gay Bill!

nigeria passes anti gay bill

This is BEYOND awful.

We're very sad to report that despite Britain's vow to cut aid for African countries that persecute gays, the Nigerian senate has passed an absolutely deplorable anti-gay bill.

Not only does the bill ban same-sex marriages, but it also calls for a 14 YEAR prison sentence "for anyone convicted of homosexuality." Horrendous!

Oh, and anyone who "aids or 'abets' same-sex unions" can also get 10 years in prison!

Here's what Amnesty International had to say about the terrible bill in a statement:

"It would place a wide range of people at risk of criminal sanctions, including human rights defenders and anyone else — including friends, families and colleagues — who stands up for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people in Nigeria."

Words cannot properly express how disappointed, disturbed, and sickened this makes us feel.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people in Nigeria who are being oppressed by this bill.

    You need a new adjective…."deplorable" is getting old. Plus—-I don't give a shit about this story.



  3. 3

    Anyone who is gay that lives there should get the hell out of that country. Nations like Canada would welcome these people if they were leaving because they were being prosecuted over there sexual idenity. Very sad.

    Re: hoochpit – so you are saying africans come from an arm pit of a place and that blacks who are called african americans come from an arm pit of a place back track your words



  12. 12

    Re: hoochpit – so since im african i come from a arm pit of a place and blacks who are reffered to african american derive from an arm pit of a place i think you should back track your comment

    Re: hoochpit – no, it is the armpit of the world. that entire continent has so many problems. i wouldn't expect anything less from them…

    Perez, I guess you know where not to go to. Flaming as you are….I think the law is wrong, but not unexpected especially since Ghana did the same. The christians went to Africa to save souls and bibled the shit out of these countries, there is your result. On the other hand, any law that would put fucking perez in prison…hmmmmmm. Maybe we could vote for a put BOYS WITH PINK HAIR in prison law.



  15. 15

    What else can you expect from Africa. It is the ANUS of the world. Nothing good has ever come out of akifra (haha).



  16. 16

    So, don't go there, your problem is sovled



  17. 17

    Them Africans don't mess around!



  18. 18

    That's the best way to slow down the spread of aids in Africa is it not?



  19. 19

    Re: TexasBadBoy – …stay in school.

    Re: TexasBadBoy – Did you know that in many african countries, men who contract aids (i don't know how), are often told to have sex with a virgin so they can be cured.

    Re: forskar – Don't get your panties in bind you fairy. Who cares about gay rights in Africa? There are so many other important issues that need to be dealt with first. I come to this site to kill time, but it's turned into biased, hypocritical, boo woo, everyone hates gays blog. PS, THIS NEW LAW IN AFRICA IS A PERFECT REASON WHY THE GAYS HERE SHOULD SHUT THE FUCK UP AND BE LUCKY THEY LIVE IN A FREE NATION!!!



  23. 23

    Good for them. Now we just need Perez to go there.



  24. 24

    Wow… these comments are terrible.



  25. 25

    Glad to see that Africa has atleast one thing right! Now if only the rest of the world can adopt this law.



  26. 26

    So horrible, another example of evil that exist in human beings. There is also another example in the comments written here. I need to print these out to take to my psych class, interesting stuff. Some of you should be checked by a doctor, early intervention is always helpful in getting you the treatment you need. I had no idea how many homophobics visited a blog created by an open gay man who is also a big advocate for gay rights.

    As for this law, I hope no one has to suffer from it. Demode, you are right, I hope many of them try and go to the wonderful coutry of Canada and the US because it would pretty funny for all those bigots out there.

    To the jackass 1and 2 who called Africa the armpit and anus of the world, if you knew anything about history you would know Africa is rich in natural resources and after colonization colonialists such as British built their nations wealth using the resources and free labor from Africa. Yes Africa has problems, it's a teething prices African nations are young compared to European nations who went through their fair share of issue before achieving economic stability. Get a freakin education and perhaps find something better to do than talk shit about thing you know nothing about rednecks!

    Re: Demode
    Do NOT bring Canada into this. We don't need anymore immigrants, gay, straight or trans gender. These people need to start fixing their own countries instead of invading Canada and trying to change our foundations and traditions that my ancestors worked very hard to build. Enough already!
