LGBT rights

A recent alternet article points out that lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals (LGBT) suffer abuse all over the world.  Though the article did not come out and explicitly say so, it would appear that LGBT’s endure more violations of their rights wherever Africans prevail:

In South Africa, where gay marriage is enshrined in the Constitution, recent years have seen a spike in reported “corrective rapes” against lesbians…

And host country Brazil, home to the largest pride festival in the world (Sao Paolo Pride), is by the numbers one of the most dangerous in the world for LGBT people. Murders of gay men and women and trans people in Brazil have jumped 62% between 2007 and 2009…

Katherine, an activist from Kenya, talked about the music and art events that she helps organize for other lesbians in the country, and the care they have to take to organize discreetly. It was only last week  that the prime minister of Kenya, Raila Odinga, said that all gays and lesbians in the country should be arrested.

Interestingly, the article mentions abuse in the U.S. as well:

In my country—the United States—twenty-nine states still permit discrimination in private employment on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, not to speak of recent violent attacks and the much publicized rash of youth suicides.

But really now!  They are concerned about discrimination in private employment?  What part of  “private” do they not understand?  As for suicides, those are tragic but I do not think they rise to the same level as murder and rape.  I get the impression that U.S. abuses are mentioned merely to make it look like whites are just as guilty of this sort of thing.  Yes, it is true that whites can also be cruel but, as a society, whites have advanced far beyond the point where any politician can call for the arrest of all gays and lesbians, or where massive violence is tolerated against such people.

Wikipedia does have an article specifically dealing with LGBT rights in Africa.  It states, in part:

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) rights in Africa are limited in comparison to other areas of the world, with the BBC estimating that homosexuality is outlawed in 38 African countries. In 13 nations homosexuality is either legal or there are no laws pertaining to it.[1]

In Mauritania, Sudan, and northern Nigeria, homosexuality can be punishable by death. In Uganda, offenders can gain a maximum of a life imprisonment for homosexual acts.

South Africa by far has the most liberal attitudes toward gays and lesbians, with a constitution which guarantees gay and lesbian rights, and legal same-sex marriage.

The article goes on to detail their legal status in each country.  But the fact that lesbians may have legal recognition in South Africa probably offers little comfort to those who are raped or murdered there.  Yes, the laws are on the books, but how much are they followed?  What one would expect from the A.N.C. is exactly what we get when it comes to matters like these.  What would one expect from a nation where over a quarter of its men admit to having raped someone?

Africans in general are not known for their tolerance, either of racial minorities or of sexual minorities.  Add to this the huge influence of Islam on the African continent and the results are powerfully toxic.

LGBT rights do not seem to be much of an issue in Asia, at least as compared to other parts of the world.  They certainly are not an issue in Western Europe – until we take into consideration the dangers posed to them by immigrants from Africa and the Middle East.

As for Eastern Europe, the anti-white media gives the impression that most violence against them is by right-wing nationalists such as neo-nazis.  I suspect that the large Muslim population is more to blame.  Whatever the case may be, I think it is a huge distraction for pro-white movements to focus their attention on sexual minorities.  Let them instead focus their energies on the wholesale invasion of white lands by barbarian hordes.  I wonder if, as Ganges Khan rode through the steppes, conquering all in his path, the Russians were bickering about the sexual orientation of cousin Ivan or sister  Masha – and this is why they melted like butter in the face of the Golden Horde.

I wanted to point out that my definition of “LGBT rights” differs from that of the MSM.  I do not consider it a “right” to adopt children and I think it is wrong for a homosexual couple to do so (in most cases).  Likewise I do not consider it a “right” for them to be officially recognized as “married” or for their lifestyles to be promoted by any public institution, especially schools.  It is a right for them to be left in peace as long as they leave others in peace.
