LGBT’s not imported, a typical Ugandan community

15 Apr


The term LGBT is intended to emphasize a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures and is sometimes used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.

Honourable David Bahati and fellow parliamentalians of Uganda think gays are just trained or recruited. Their belief is based on rumours that allege youths and school going children are being recruited into homosexuality by the Ugandan gay community,  which is absolutely untrue. These legislators, alongwith pentecostal pastors have managed to convince uninformed Ugandans that homosexuality is a habit introduced to Uganda by the whites or the West in a bid to provoke violence against gays.

Even if this were true, why should one choose to become gay in a homophobic community like Uganda? Isn’t this very strange!

African homophobia is historical and was spread by white missionaries through their homophobic doctrines. Let us then look upon homosexuality as something African, and which existed in Africa much prior to the arrival of white missionaries and their hatred.

It should not require much effort to realize that homophobia owes its origins to white missionaries and their hateful religious teachings, followed by legislation by their counterparts, the colonialists.

Ugandan scientists can be liars

Research by authoritative academics like Glenn Wilson (Institute of Psychiatry, London) and Qazi Rahman (lecturer in psychobiology, University of East London) also confirms that gay people are not made but born. According to the findings published in the book, Born Gay (Psychobiology of Sex Orientation), homosexuality is caused by a combination of genes and hormonal influences in the womb during a mother’s pregnancy. Therefore the idea that people can be made gay, is not scientific but just homophobic, a conclusion that no doctor would have given. If Museveni’s signing of the bill into law depended on just baseless facts, then he obviously consulted the wrong people.

 Boy Wives and Female Husbands

In the 17th Century, the Ndongo Kingdom of the Mbundu ( present-day Angola) had a woman ruler who preffered to be called Ngola (the equivalent of King), and not queen. In the Kongo and Ndonga Kingdoms during the 1580′s, natives of the Dombe area used to have men dressed as women cohabiting with their wives. We all know that prior to the arrival of the whites, most African cultures treated importent men as women. This continues to be so in many cultures. These findings have also been published in a book “Boy-Wives and Female Husbands: Studies of African Homosexualities” by Will Roscoe and Stephen O. Murray.
