Homosexuality and the Effeminization of Afrikan Males

By Sicebise Msengana









"As with every other perversion Europeans attempt to introduce us to, homosexuality often comes in a humorous package. We are persuaded to laugh at its strangeness. Participatory laughter disarms us and makes the object of our laughter innocent, harmless. Yet, at the same time, it opens our minds to the possibility of its acceptance. Regardless, it is introduced to our consciousness. And we should know that all it takes is one time. All we have to do to have something planted in our minds is to be exposed to it one time. That’s why people shield their children from negativity, to prevent them from being exposed to things that they do not want them to consider as possibilities, things that shatter their innocence" - Mwalimu K. Bomani Baruti, Homosexuality and the Effeminization of Afrikan Males.
