Including and Beyond the Hard Cell Playroom : Sexual anarchy – every conceivable act of intimacy a “right” ?

To  be  coherent  the  concept  of  “Gay  rights”   inevitably   must    embrace  all  of  the  activities  of  the  “Hard  Cell” Website ( http://www.hardcell.org.uk/playroom.htm)  and  more.

This  conclusion does not   imply  that  all  Men who have  Sex with  Men  (MSM) indulge  in all acts cited on  the  “Hard Cell” website  but  rather all  MSM have  a “right”  to  indulge  in same  and  more. In other  words  there  is  no conceivable   act  of  intimacy  between  MSM  that  is  not  normative. This  philosophical outlook  would  explain why “Terrence  Higgins  Trust”  lists  the acts  on  its  website  with  no  attempt at  moral  or  aesthetic  evaluation.

Once  sex is  no  longer  defined  as  intimate  relationship  between a  man and a  woman with use  of  the penis and  the vagina  there  is  no  coherent  reason  for  excluding  any  activity  including  all  that  are  cited.

 

Wikipedia  discusses  gay  rights  in Jamaica at : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Jamaica

Article  79  of  the  Offences Against the Person Act  states :

Any male person who, in public or private, commits, or is a party to the commission of, or procures or attempts to procure the commission by any male person of, any act of gross indecency with another male person, shall be guilty of a misdemeanour, and being convicted thereof shall be liable at the discretion of the court to be imprisoned for a term not exceeding two years, with or without hard labour.

Gross indecency” is not defined, but has been interpreted to include male homosexual conduct between consenting adults in private.[3]

 

 

Is  the  agitation  by  LGBT  activists  and  their  supporters  from Human Rights   organizations  for removal  of  all  sections  of  the  Offences  Against  the Person Act  which  address  acts  of  intimacy  a  commitment   to  provide  a  legal framework  which  embraces  every conceivable   act  of  intimacy  as  a “right”  – in  short , sexual  anarchy?

Gay rights: Africa, the new frontier

By Farouk Chothia BBC Africa

Gay rights appear to have become a new frontier in diplomatic relations between Western powers and African governments, with the US and UK warning they would use foreign aid to push for homosexuality to be decriminalised on the socially conservative continent.

Addressing an audience of diplomats in Geneva, US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton called for the rights of gay people to be respected.

“Gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world,” Mrs Clinton said.

“Being gay is not a Western invention. It is a human reality.”

If the Americans think they can tell us what to do, they can go to hell”

End Quote John Nagenda Ugandan presidential adviser

Mrs Clinton did not outline sanctions for countries that fail to reform same-sex laws, but an official memorandum directs US government agencies to consider gay rights when making aid and asylum decisions.

Her comments follow a warning by UK Prime Minister David Cameron last month that the UK would reduce some aid to countries that refuse to recognise gay rights.

Homosexual acts are illegal in most African countries, including key Western allies such as Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt and Botswana.

Reacting angrily to Mrs Clinton’s speech, Ugandan presidential adviser John Nagenda told the BBC: “That fellow [Mr Cameron] said the same thing. Now this woman [Clinton] is interfering.

“If the Americans think they can tell us what to do, they can go to hell.”

Uganda is a staunch ally of the US, receiving military assistance to fight a local rebel group – the Lord’s Resistance Army – and has sent troops to Somalia to fight the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab group.

Evangelical lobby

Mr Nagenda said Uganda would continue to co-operate with the US on security and other issues, but added: “If they are childish enough to take away aid, we’ll see what we do [in response].”

UK-based Justice for Gay Africans campaign group co-ordinator, Godwyns Onwuchekwa, told the BBC that with US Christian evangelical groups increasingly active in Africa, hostility toward gay people has worsened on the continent.

“The evangelical lobby is very powerful and we know that they lobbied Uganda’s parliament in 2009 to introduce anti-gay legislation,” he said, referring to a private member’s bill – which was shelved after a local and international outcry – which called for the death penalty to be imposed for some homosexual acts.

Martyn Minns as the missionary bishop of the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (5 May 2007) Nigeria’s Anglican Archbishop Peter Akinola is at the forefront of campaigns against gay rights

“I won’t be surprised if they are also involved in Nigeria, where the Anglican Archbishop [Peter Akinola] has the support of US churches opposed to the ordination of gay bishops.”

The Nigerian Senate – dominated by conservative Christian and Muslim MPs – last week approved a bill to further criminalise homosexuality, using Mr Cameron’s threat to cut aid to rally public support and to accuse the UK – the former colonial power – of interfering.

It is usually better if people fight for themselves”

End Quote Godwyns Onwuchekwa Gay rights activist

The bill, which still has to be passed by the lower house before becoming law, says same-sex couples entering into either marriage or cohabitation would face jail terms of up to 14 years, and those “witnessing” or “abetting” such relationships would also face custodial sentences.

“The only thing that unites Christians and Muslims in Nigeria [where thousands of people have been killed in sectarian conflict] is the oppression of gay people,” Mr Onwuchekwa said.

In Egypt, the BBC’s Ranyah Sabry says that UK and US calls for homosexuality to be decriminalised will be rejected by all political parties in the North African state – one of the first to be hit by a popular uprising for democratic reforms in the Arab world.

“Their timing couldn’t be worse, with the Islamists on the rise [following their victory in first stage of parliamentary elections], but gay rights are totally unacceptable to all political forces – liberals, secularists and Islamists,” she says.
