Africa: Homophobia exists in Africa

“Homophobia exists in Africa, as does influenza,” argues blogger Gukira: “This comparison is only partly gratuitous as I am interested in scales of virulence. We know that African bees are the deadliest; the sun in Africa is hotter than anywhere else in the world; viruses from Africa are the most malicious; and the simple cold, when caught in Africa, destroys the entire body within 3 hours.”

    I think it is generally difficult to expect any struggling peoples to tolerate … or even show basic human compassion towards … small internal minorities. It is a sad almost universal that those without other means often try to lift themselves up by putting others down, violently or not.
