Gay O'le Way!

So I heard our Reps passed a bill that is supposed to change our economy forever. Yikes, don't laugh! I'm serious. Well, I had no intentions of getting into the arguments as I assumed there will a band of cheerleaders screaming support for whatever team they believe in. Until I got several of those anti-gay messages making the rounds on facebook, bbm and whatsapp.

Some of them rather hilarious and others just plain silly...God didn't make Adam and Steve....Bla, bla bla...Oh! Chi'm! Funny the ways of my people. Lol. Anyway, I personally know God made Adam, Eve, Steve, Lucy and Everyone else they invite to their party. Hahahah!

Before I get on with my discombulated thoughts about the anti-gay bill passed by our mis-guided Senators. Let me start by stating categorically that I'm not Gay nor am I auditioning to be. Infact I love men way too much (hahahah...I mean that figuratively not literally) and I'm too straight an arrow to bend (okay I bend, but you know the team I play for, right?)

I'm quite bemused that the Senators of my Father-land believe that the most pressing issues to address is the sexual orientation of others. When we have myriads of Security issues, Political issues, Criminal issues, Infrastructural issues, let me not mention Creative issues with my beloved Entertainment Industry (Abeg where's our anti-piracy bill na?) We have all sorts of issues looming over us yet my senators are more concerned about something that really shouldn't be their business, especially since whatever political parties they are aligned with have no basic ideological principle it is founded on...and I'm yet to even figure out how a person's sexual orientation or preference affects the general economy or my standard of living.

I am not saying it is okay or not okay to be gay. Infact It is not my business if a man likes to play 'bend-over-and-touch-your-toes' so another man can drive his shaft into him. It is not my business if a woman likes another woman to go down on all fours eating her up like she's diabetic and digging for insulin. It is not my business, what other people do behind the four walls of their privacy...as long as they don't bring it to me and it doesn't affect me or my family. Its not even up to me to judge but God.

I also think not one single person alive is credible enough to make that judgement call on behalf of what ever good reason they can whisk up. By passing that bill they have infringed on some people's fundamental rights because freedom and liberty are fundamental human rights. How is it their place to decide who a person can sleep with or date? Isn't that why we have been blessed with common sense? What happened to freedom to choose?!

Some people are even blaming the western culture. How is this a sudden burst of cultural influence when Sodomy was existent even before the birth of Christ. They quote the bible and remind us that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Forgetting that we no longer live under the LAW but under GRACE... Isn't that why Jesus died for us? To give us salvation...And now they speak on behalf of our ever-forgiving God. How is this supposed sin bigger than the sin of they that loot taxpayers funds, dabble into occultic activities, marry several wives, have affairs n strings of illegitimate children, plant coups, lie to its citizen and steal from us? How is this different from the sin you and I (heterosexual) members of the society commit on a daily basis, if that's our argument?! Then sin is equal before God and the reward is a flat rate; HELL. I see sick, corrupt, mentally unstable heterosexual men and women suffering daily from delusion of grandeur...now, thank you senators for giving them one more reason to feel superior.


What does this bill hope to achieve? In my opinion NADA!!! What's likely to happen is that innocent unsuspecting citizens get harassed, abused and become victims of this law, while the real homosexuals go back into the closet and everyone starts living a double life playing pretend because the society has bullied them back in. Do you really want your sister, daughter to be married to a down-low-in-the-closet-homosexual? Or your brother/son to a lesbian-in-the closet all in the spirit of this bill?

A good friend of mine has refused to use our usual playful term of endearment for fear of being perceived as gay..."Ha Alex, I can't call you sweetie anymore o" we both laughed. But is it really funny that we now have the added responsibility of looking over our shoulders for fear of being wrongfully victimized? We don't have to support their choices, we don't have to accept it or get influenced and for those who do...well everything in this world is permissible but not everything is beneficial. We really can't tell young/grown adults that they have no right to make whatever choices they want for their lives.

Even as a mother to a 3 year toddler who's learning to be independent, I'm learning I can't enforce my choices on him, I can only guide him. So if our Senators have no serious issues to tend to in the round house. Can they please pass a bill that permits ME to shop for free? This present bill does nothing to solve my pending domestic issues. Have a Gay Ole Sunday Lovelies!
