It's funny until you realise that some African countries have the death penalty for being homosexual and others carry long jail sentences. A lot relies on people not understanding sexuality and misinformation like this makes it impossible for gays to survive in their birth country.
I was at a forum for GLTBQ identifying people from different cultural backgrounds where an Ethiopian man (jail sentence, not death sentence for being gay there), who was lucky to come to Australia where his sexuality isn't an issue, spoke about his cousin who is also gay being basically put under house arrest by his parents who have then hired a girl to be his live in girlfriend so no one will know his sexuality and he cannot engage in any activity they see as perverse. I can't imagine living in those societies. Where do you go for decent information when the people you respect are talking about licking poopoo like an ice cream?
