To The Nigerian: Gay People Do Not Need Your Rage. Corrupt People Do

Disclaimer: This post is targeted at religious bigots that think gay people are the problem with Nigeria. Hopefully, I’m not pouring water into a basket. Being religious doesn’t mean one is bigoted. Conversely, being an atheist/agnostic doesn’t mean one is not bigoted.

Already anticipating bigots would only read the title and fly into conclusions without reading this post.

Dear Nigerian Bigots,

The best way to hide things from you is in print (words).

BIGOTS DON’T READ.

Remember how I say “We all might be going to hell”? Well, it might be prison.

Remember how your mouths run like diarrhea when it comes to homosexuality?

Remember how you thumb through scriptures to buttress your disgust at gay people like you’re sinless?

“Look at this one? Romans 1: 26- 27 says gay and lesbian is a bad something.”

“Look at this one? Romans 1: 26- 27 says gay and lesbian is a bad something.”

Remember how you think Dante’s Rings of Hell are real? You believe in different hell for different sins, I guess.

I can wager about 75% of your lot have not read Section 214 of the Nigerian Constitution that says, “fourteen years”.

Since you ‘opinionate’ without reading, I’ve brought the constitution to you.Gay-Bigots5

This is the focus:Gay-Bigots4

“… against the order of nature.”

Deviant sexual acts are against the order of nature.Gay-Bigots1deviant-sex-ppt-12-638

More deviant sexual acts:sexual-abuse-21-728Gay-Bigots2From this, you’re guilty of deviant sexual acts if you

  • Are into BDSM (Kinky Fuckery)
  • Have sex with children
  • Watch porn
  • Have sex with animals
  • Have anal sex with a young boy
  • Rape peopledeviant-behavior-11-728

For those of you that cry “Sodomy”:Gay-Bigot6Gay-Bigot7

Subsection 2 talks about bestiality. But, that is not the issue for now.

Subsection 3 says: “permits a male person to have carnal knowledge of HIM OR HER…”Gay-Bigots4

I guess heterosexual relationships are not spared. After all, sodomy includes anal or oral sex.

Bigots, can you say you haven’t engaged in sexual deviant acts?

You want to lie?

You want to lie?

Lie to yourself, not to God.

I read hoe stories; I see things and I’m thrown off balance at how pervy some Nigerians are.IMG_20151222_165948

If you have anal or oral sex or indulged in other deviant acts yet, gay-bash people, kindly accept this certificate of hypocrisy! Let the shame hang around your neck until you drop the sanctimonious act.hypocrisy-official-certificate-genuine-hypocrites-53879344

Some of you threaten to call the police to arrest gay people…

“Nigerian Police, I see one gay here o! Hmm… Please, com’an’ arrest o!”

“Nigerian Police, I see one gay here o! Hmm… Please, com’an’ arrest o!”

… yet, not far from you, a man beats his wife.

On your street is a woman that abuses her house help.

You won’t report people that think like this:Rapist

Or this:Rape

Or even this:Gay-Bigot9-1

Yet, you want to report a crime that has no victim.

SHAME ON YOU!

We’ve institutionalised/normalised corruption yet, your puny mind is obsessed with a crime/sin that doesn’t hurt you. Aren’t you disappointed in yourself?

We’ve institutionalised/normalised corruption yet, your puny mind is obsessed with a crime/sin that doesn’t hurt you. Aren’t you disappointed in yourself?

Moral Lesson:

  1. Let he who is without sin be the first to cast a stone.
  2. Live and let live.
  3. “Let peace be. Let life be.” – Chinelo Okparanta’s Under the Udala Trees.
  4. Let people pursue happiness, so far they don’t hurt another person.freedom-of-religion-not-bigotry4_n

If you hate gay people for religious reasons, you realise you are sinful too, right?Romans

Gay people don’t need our rage. Corruption and bad governance need our anger!

If we were united to fight Ebola, we can fight corruption and bad governance.

Do we want our kids to be born into a country that has normalized corruption?

Wouldn’t we be disappointed in ourselves if we’re talking about poor electricity in 2026?

There are more places of worship than we have factories. How do we explain that we claim to be religious yet we are globally known for being corrupt?

Please, let’s channel our rage to making our country a better place.

Gay people are not the problem! Corrupt people are.

    Seriously, this was like a comment more than a thought-out article.

      And the use of wikipedia for legal definitions doesn’t help. Terms used in the law are defined and codified by other laws. Not by wikipedia or internet lists

      I’m also wary of the “we all sin”rebuttal to homophobia. That confirms the right of homophobes to determine whether homosexuality is Ok. In my view homosexuality is perfectly fine so I avoid “it’s a sin like others” arguments

    It should really be easy not to be homophobic, or perhaps to be antigay and be on your lane. It should be easy. Why is prejudice so quick not to mind its business?

    That’s the Criminal Code,not the Constitution.
    People should learn to differentiate between the ground norm and Acts of parliament
