Officials in the Nigerian senate proposed a bill that would not only criminalize those who enter into same-sex marriages (which are, by the way, already illegal there) but also impose penalties on anyone who “witnesses, abets and aids the solemnization of a same gender marriage contract.”
Punishment for marrying someone of the same sex would amount to three years in prison; the punishment for “witnessing, abetting or aiding” a same-sex marriage could be up to five years in prison or a hefty fine. Oh, and in case you forgot:
Homosexuality is already criminalized in Nigeria, with a penalty of fourteen years’ imprisonment upon conviction. In areas where Sharia Law are in effect, the penalty is death.
This is so scary.
I can’t even deal with how scary this is. Fuck I’m scared for those people
“Sweetie, it doesn’t make sense. That’s exactly it. It makes as much sense as racism does. Instead of judging on a persons skin color, you’re judging on their gender preference. But there’s no way that liking a certain gender makes you any less of a human. In fact, it kind of proves that you’re human because it embodies the fact that you are a person who can fall in love and love another Human being. Humans are human because they can love another person and therefore in loving a certain gender you are proving that you are as human as the rest of society. Which is why homophobia makes no sense. Because how can another human, falling in love with someone, be considered vile in anyway? It can’t.”—
I don't understand how guys can only want sex from a girl.
It makes absolutely no sense to me. Okay, sweet, sex feels great, and everybody needs to get off once in a while, but you shouldn’t be looking at a girl or hanging out with her and having only sex on the brain. I mean not only is that not cool but like… Think of all of
the things that you’re going to miss if you fuck her and chuck her. She wants to share her world with you. Don’t you want to see what it has to offer? Don’t you want her to take you to places that you’ve never been, and for fucks sakes don’t you want to explore her brain and her heart..? That’s what I’m looking forward to most I think and it must be different because I’m gay I guess but I can’t wait to explore all the intricacies of someone’s mind and learn all about their world and just be with them, really. I mean obviously I wanna fuck too, but to be completely honest it’s at the bottom of my list of things to do with a girl.
I just… How can you miss out on ALL THAT, in exchange for fifteen minutes of pleasure? Because let’s be honest you won’t last any longer than that. :)
“This place was never the same again after you came and went, how could you say you meant anything different to anyone?

Look to the past and remember a smile, and maybe tonight I can breathe for a while; I’m not in the scene I think I’m falling asleep but then all that it means is I’ll always be dreaming of you”—blink-182
