    The other ones are debatable, but the one about religious idiots is absolutely spot on!

    We are mentioned in the same breath as thieves, rapists, murderers and pedophiles… It doesn’t take a genius to see that those ones always involve victims.
    Who is the victim when two consenting individuals of either similar age or two adults get together?
    Common sense they say is not common…

    “What society thinks I do” doesn’t apply to Nigeria. The average gay person here is not interested in any form of activism/community issues yet – I think. (But that may be changing.)

    What Nigerian society thinks I do is have anal sex all day long!

      LOL! Yes exactly. There’s this need to associate all gay men with sex and the anus in Nigeria.

        I want to rephrase your sentence: “There’s this `association` about all gay men with sex and the anus in Nigeria.”

    lool … the pic about religious idiots is right on the money!!! I cant count how many times i’ve heard a religitard justifying his homophobic hate under the premise that gays “target” children.
    Also, a lot of my friends for some weird reason find it hard to believe that am not having as much sex as they like to imagine am having. Being gay (for me) isnt all about the sex, if you ask me, sex gets tiring and monotonous …
