Why Are There So Many Homosexuals In The North?

Bauchi: 18 arrested for sodomy •Face death penalty

EIGHTEEN suspected homo-sexuals have been arrested by the police in Bauchi for alleged sodomy.

The accused may be sentenced to death if convicted under Bauchi State’s Islamic Shariah law.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the suspects were arrested Sunday in a hotel in Bauchi and arraigned Wednesday before Justice Taminu Abubakar of the Bauchi High Court.

Prosecuting police officer, Thadius Boboi told the court that the men, who were wearing female clothing, had come to the city from five neighbouring states to celebrate a gay "marriage".

He said the men’s actions had contravened the shari’ah penal code adopted in Bauchi and other states in muslim northern Nigeria eight years ago following the end of military rule.

In June an agency tasked with implementing shari’ah law in Bauchi called on the new state governor Isa Yuguda to approve three sentences of death by stoning and 40 of amputation passed since 2002 which his predecessor had refused to ratify.

The death sentences were passed for sexual offences, including one for sodomy.

In a Nigerian shari’ah state, the governor must give his approval before punishments like death and amputation passed by shari’ah courts are actually carried out.

Daily Champion recalls that the Federal Government last year banned gay marriage in Nigeria, thus ending hopes by people of same sex to enjoy marital relationships in the country.

The ban also affects staging of gay rallies. This resolution was reached during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting which considered and endorsed the bill prohibiting gay marriage. It slammed five years prison terms with no option of fine on both direct violators of the law and those that aid and abet such marriages.

Immediate past minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Bayo Ojo (SAN) presented the bill to the meeting leading to the resolution.

What do you expect? They have been restricted from coming in contact with females. And we all know they’re humans not animals. Since there’s not option for them, homosexuality becomes the best option for them.

Why Are There So Many Homosexuals In The North?Because we don't want them in the South.

Sadly the openly Homo Xris74 will gradually introduce it to the South. Maybe this is why he went to America, to study Sodomy. Tufiakwa.

Who gives a damn how many homosexuals there are.

The problem isn't the Homosexuals, it's the Goddam conservative people of Northern Nigeria.

We live in the 21st century for goodness sakes.

Sharia is a prehistoric law, written by Home Erectus Arabians.

Get with the times.

Homosexuals are immoral, but conservative morons, that stone people to death for petty crimes are more immoral.

You guys will never learn !! You should by now know that the first poster xris74 is mr. controversy and enjoys folks bashing themselves. Please endevour to visit most of his posts (its either northern this, southern that or christian/muslim conflicting issues). For those that don't know him well, he will always resort to abuses at the end (if you try to point him the right way). He spend his day just sourcing out tribal/religious news to post in nairaland.

If Northern Nigerian men hate women so much as to insist that they be hermetically sealed up in space suits, I propose that all young, beautiful women (only) should be deported from the Muslim north to other areas of Nigeria for their own safety, and that gays should be encouraged with generous cash bonuses to move into the Sharia-ruled north to populate the anus-impaling paradise the good folks over there obviously prefer over a mixed gender population.

Now that would be a real win-win solution to the "woman problem" in the Republic of Sharialand, after which all Nigerians can live happily ever after, content in the knowledge that every sector of the country has what it asked for.

Homosexuality is adopted behaviour it is abnormal inclination resulting in deviant behaviour. Have no doubt God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. It is disfunctionalism to substitute created function for something else there is always a price to pay. Let’s keep things simple it is wrong although it may be their choice.

The character of a person good or bad does not justify their actions good or bad but the actions impact on the character to create it. You may be contributing to whatever society you belong to positively does not give credibility to all your actions as being right.

Serial killers, child molesters, Cannibals, often have quite pleasant dispositions.

Finally homosexuals are not looking for tolerance they are looking for acceptance. The acceptance they seek is agreement to their chosen adopted lifestyle. To agree is to believe it to be right. Now they call it sexual discrimination for you to propagate the virtues of marriage in schools to the detriment of the gay lifestyle. You could face litigation imagine huh! This is the general standard across Europe.

In Europe the homosexual lobby has made it illegal almost for you to express a negative opinion of there lifestyle.

I freely say as Niaja remains free, this is abomination of abomination an insult to God and mankind. If not for the love of God, I would sing Buju- Bantons “BOOM BOOM BYE” With glee in the face of the batty man & lesbians.

@denex, you failed to answer my previous question.

Bonobos are the closest to humans among the primates and they are  naturally bi-sexual.

Homosexual Activity Among Animals Stirs Debate

Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it. So go the lyrics penned by US. songwriter Cole Porter.

Porter, who first hit it big in the 1920s, wouldn't risk parading his homosexuality in public. In his day "the birds and the bees" generally meant only one thing—sex between a male and female.

But, actually, some same-sex birds do do it. So do beetles, sheep, fruit bats, dolphins, and orangutans. Zoologists are discovering that homosexual and bisexual activity is not unknown within the animal kingdom.

Roy and Silo, two male chinstrap penguins at New York's Central Park Zoo have been inseparable for six years now. They display classic pair-bonding behavior—entwining of necks, mutual preening, flipper flapping, and the rest. They also have sex, while ignoring potential female mates.

Wild birds exhibit similar behavior. There are male ostriches that only court their own gender, and pairs of male flamingos that mate, build nests, and even raise foster chicks.

Filmmakers recently went in search of homosexual wild animals as part of a National Geographic Ultimate Explorer documentary about the female's role in the mating game. (The film, Girl Power, will be screened in the US this Saturday at 8 p.m. ET, 5 p.m PT on MSNBC TV.)

The team caught female Japanese macaques engaged in intimate acts which, if observed in humans, would be in the X-rated category.

"The homosexual behavior that goes on is completely baffling and intriguing," says National Geographic Ultimate Explorer correspondent, Mireya Mayor. "You would have thought females that want to be mated, especially over their fertile period, would be seeking out males."

Well, perhaps, in a roundabout way, they are seeking males, suggests primatologist Amy Parish.

She argues that female macaques may enhance their social position through homosexual intimacy which in turn influences breeding success. Parish says, "Taking something that's nonreproductive, like mounting another female—if it leads to control of a resource or acquisition of a resource or a good alliance partner, that could directly impact your reproductive success."

Sexual Gratification

On the other hand, they could just be enjoying themselves, suggests Paul Vasey, animal behavior professor at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. "They're engaging in the behavior because it's gratifying sexually or it's sexually pleasurable," he says. "They just like it. It doesn't have any sort of adaptive payoff."

Matthew Grober, biology professor at Georgia State University, agrees, saying, "If [sex] wasn't fun, we wouldn't have any kids around. So I think that maybe Japanese macaques have taken the fun aspect of sex and really run with it."

The bonobo, an African ape closely related to humans, has an even bigger sexual appetite. Studies suggest 75 percent of bonobo sex is nonreproductive and that nearly all bonobos are bisexual. Frans de Waal, author of Bonobo: The Forgotten Ape, calls the species a "make love, not war" primate. He believes bonobos use sex to resolve conflicts between individuals.

Other animals appear to go through a homosexual phase before they become fully mature. For instance, male dolphin calves often form temporary sexual partnerships, which scientists believe help to establish lifelong bonds. Such sexual behavior has been documented only relatively recently. Zoologists have been accused of skirting round the subject for fear of stepping into a political minefield.

"There was a lot of hiding of what was going on, I think, because people were maybe afraid that they would get into trouble by talking about it," notes de Waal. Whether it's a good idea or not, it's hard not make comparisons between humans and other animals, especially primates. The fact that homosexuality does, after all, exist in the natural world is bound to be used against people who insist such behavior is unnatural.

In the US., in particular, the moral debate over this issue rages on. Many on the religious right regard homosexuality as a sin. And only this month, President Bush vowed to continue his bid to ban gay marriages after the Senate blocked the proposal.

Already, cases of animal homosexuality have been cited in successful court cases brought against states like Texas, where gay sex was, until recently, illegal.

Yet scientists say we should be wary of referring to animals when considering what's acceptable in human society. For instance, infanticide, as practiced by lions and many other animals, isn't something people, gay or straight, generally approve of in humans.

Human Homosexuality

So how far can we go in using animals to help us understand human homosexuality? Robin Dunbar is a professor of evolutionary psychology at the University of Liverpool, England. "The bottom line is that anything that happens in other primates, and particularly other apes, is likely to have strong evolutionary continuity with what happens in humans," he said.

Dunbar says the bonobo's use of homosexual activity for social bonding is a possible example, adding, "One of the main arguments for human homosexual behavior is that it helps bond male groups together, particularly where a group of individuals are dependent on each other, as they might be in hunting or warfare."

For instance, the Spartans, in ancient Greece, encouraged homosexuality among their elite troops. "They had the not unreasonable belief that individuals would stick by and make all efforts to rescue other individuals if they had a lover relationship," Dunbar added.

Another suggestion is that homosexuality is a developmental phase people go through. He said, "This is similar to the argument of play in young animals to get their brain and muscles to work effectively and together. Off the back of this, there's the possibility you can get individuals locked into this phase for the rest of their lives as a result of the social environment they grow up in."

But he adds that homosexuality doesn't necessarily have to have a function. It could be a spin-off or by-product of something else and in itself carries no evolutionary weight."

He cites sexual gratification, which encourages procreation, as an example. "An organism is designed to maximize its motivational systems," he adds.

In other words, if the urge to have sex is strong enough it may spill over into nonreproductive sex, as suggested by the actions of the bonobos and macaques. However, as Dunbar admits, there's a long way to go before the causes of homosexuality in humans are fully understood.

He said, "Nobody's really investigated this issue thoroughly, because it's so politically sensitive. It's fair to say all possibilities are still open."

You talk about these issues with such relish.

I will admit I was as homophobic as they come when I first settled in the UK, but have since mellowed.

They are as harmless as the heterosexual guy next door.

For instance we get more instances of heterosexual paedophillia than homosexual ones in my reckoning.

I am just as repulsed by one as the other.

Somebody is homosexual and you're telling me that he leads a normal life. Homosexual and Normal are mutually exclusive.

I am not going to zip it when men go around sodomizing other men's anuses.

Do you think they are keeping to themselves? Watch some cartoons and children's movies and you will notice homosexual undertones and cross-dressing themes.

They are not just sitting there in their own corner ANALysing themselves, they are coming for our kids!

I could tolerate them when I thought they just wanted to be with each other and do their thing. But no. They're not satisfied with that. They are in our sons' churches, their school gyms and coach their sports teams. And they're just waiting for the opportunity to shove it up. No! I will not sit away why a muscular gym teacher is scheming on how to lascerate my son's Bottom with his wayward phallus.

homosexuality is not natural, just like suicide it is very very abnormal that is why we can't just leave them alone.

Abi suicidal people, no be themselves dem wan kill? Why you think say people suppose stop them? Because that is not what they were created to do.

Homosexuality is immoral, it is evil, it is demonic and now it is spreading among underage children because of the favourable stance taken by the satellite media on homosexuality.

It must be curbed now. God hates it, man hates it, animals hate it, hell, even machines hate it.

What is wrong with you people? How man go put prick inside man nyash?!

These are the kinds of things that make me believe that God is powerless if at all he exists. How can he possibly sit and watch all this happen? It's disgusting jare.

Next thing some people will start advocating for the right to practice bestiality. Yes. How much different is it from homosexuality? Man wey fit plug man, e go fit plug dog!

Thanks for CONFIRMING YOU ARE INDEED AN IGNORAMUS.

I normally do not consult dictionaries because I do not need to. But for the benefit of Olodos like this rotten pawpaw:

The online Merrian-Webster dictionary defines pseudonym as a fictitious name; a false name

http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?va=pseudonym

Otherwise,

Since Pawpaw is not your pseudonym, I am indeed sorry that Pawpaw is your real name. Forgive me for the commission of thinking that it is your pseudonym. On the other hand, Xris74 is a pseudonym.

In Nigeria, available statistics show that Christians are about 2% more likely to be HIV positive than their muslim counterparts.

@Paw-Paw

gay people haven't left us alone. Why should we leave them alone? They've approached me more than twice. Once when I was in school in Kano, but funny enough, it wasn't a Hausa guy. I warned that one and left him. Second time, one white guy in PROFLEX Gym in V.I in '99 that one didn't go without a skin-reddening, thunder slap.

And please, abeg, those of us wey no know wetin we dey talk, make we desist from big-big grammar.

@Xris74

Pseudonym is a false name used mainly by writers or journalist etc. You can't call my screen name a false or fake name, Seun requires you to have a screen name to log in. It becomes a pseudonym if having known someone to be pawpaw, I then change my screen name to something really silly like Xris74. It would be deemed a pseudonym because I would have assumed a fake or false name. In fact the word "pseudonym" is mainly used in literally circles, though I can see why you consider my post a literary masterpiece. Next time try checking the meaning of a word before using it, also try getting this reference book called "Dictionary". If you can't afford it, beg a friend, if all fails steal it from a library. Word of warning though, I would not accept random use of obscure words from the aforementioned ref book. Language is a means of communication, the target audience need to understand what you are trying to convey. Hope this little help regenerates the dead cells you call your brain. Enjoy.

Hausa gays is a very open secret covered up by their religion (call it hypocricy)

Orikinla was right when he said it is prevalent in Saudi Arabia. It is practiced in all Islamic countries. The lack of open association with females and close proximity with males is what brought this aberration about.

molest is also very prevalent in the North, grown men like especialy To Molest very young girls.

These are facts and a big problem in the North which authorities are now starting to address.
