Joyce Banda, President of Malawi, continues to amaze as a Champion of liberty and human rights. This time she takes on the The Christians, who are still at it once again, spreading their caustic brand of vitriolic evil and hurting innocent people. Banda recently suspended the arrests of homosexuals in Malawi and looks set to repeal anti homosexual laws.

As Atheists and humanists we should care? The answer is Yes. Firstly an injury to ones person's human rights is an injury to all and once you let inhumanity lose on any group, who will be next muslims, jews, whites, shangaans, pygmies, old women, albinos? But there is a more fundamental reason why we should be offended. Simply put – we are all homosexuals.

As I write this I can hear them - “Blah, Blah Genuflect” - go all the fundamentalists flipping through their grubby ancient texts looking for ordained punishments that can be handed out to alpha male supporters of homosexual rights. Sadly any further explanation I now make will simply go unheeded by creationists because it clashes with the multiple times mistranslated interpretation of some two thousand year old Aramaic scribes, filtered through a thousand years of medieval prejudice. Nevertheless for those who are capable of following the basics of evolutionary biology, etymology and genetics, here is why Homosexuals are Natural:

Homosexual are present in ALL large scale mammalian populations, and as evolutionists know these kinds of trends are not by error, but are usually indicative of a species survival mechanism. The important aspect to understand is that Homosexuality in humans is not a social construct or decree of the Devil. It is as prevalent in kangaroos as it is in humans and even more so in more polygamous populations likes seals or antelope. Homosexuality is an important aspect of the survival and success of our species!

Genetic studies that compare inheritance trees of Mitochondrial vs Y Chromosome DNA come to the clear conclusion that Women are more likely to get their genes through to the next generation than men. This has not been as intensely studied in other mammals, but it is likely to be true of most mammal species. Simply put, it is not an equal paring system. Multiple women choose to mate with superior males (yah for the winners) and this leaves a percentage of males not in the reproductive loop (oops) - fact.

The system of unequal pairing is going to lead to a lot of fighting amongst the losers. We observe this in all mammals. The losers are moved towards the homosexual groupings. Without out homosexuality any large mammalian population can never stabilise, it will continually be at war with itself. A fluctuating proportion of the population is thus always homosexual. Historically the social construct is that humans have been able to develop this energy into armies that attack other armies rather than attack their own society. Homosexuality is historically paired to soldiers.

Genetics tell us that evolutionary information is carried in the genetic code. The tendency to homosexuality must be carried though in all of us as the genes can have no knowledge of who will and who will not be eligible for reproduction. There is only one genetic code for all humans, so this is information must be carried through in females too. There can't be one code for women and one code for men, this is why men have nipples and women have clitorises (homologus organs). The information that carries homosexuality from one generation to another and carries it across all successful species, is an entirely natural and integral part of who we are.

So there you have it, homosexuals are the mechanism that keeps the population group stable while still allowing the alpha males to get more than their fair share and allows females to pick the best genes that they require. So why are alpha males so angry and aggressive towards homosexuals? Beats me. We should be thankful we don't have to keep looking over our shoulders every time we pass groups of guys in the street. The good book must carry a large part of the blame.

So why this rise in Homophobia in African states? Why this belief that whites brought homosexuality to Africa? This interpretation is a wishful ignorance of history. As I explained earlier, homosexuality is often associated with males excluded from the reproductive process. This is often associated with soldiers – fighters. When the first missionaries arrived in Natal, at the kraal of Africa's greatest warrior king, Shaka Zulu, they were surprised to find that he had young boys in near proximity and openly fondled their genitals.

The transformation to intolerance and the position that homosexuality was “never practiced in Africa” is a fallacy perpetuated by the remarkable uptake of Christianity and the extinction of free thought in Africa. It is in fact Christianity that had no following in pre colonial Africa. And the evil of interpreting colonial texts to the disbenefit of natural Africans has no place in our future. Humanist across the continent must rise up against this evil force. Inhuman treatment of consenting adults has no place amongst us. Homosexuality is the current battleground, but the war is for the mind of the African people.

I have looking for accurate figures in the prevalence of homosexuality in African populations or comparitive prevalence. Can't find real samples sizes.  The best survey done so far seems to be in Australia.

The coffee-at-the-water-cooler-lobby research that I did, gives figures of between 1% to 3 %. My anecdotal evidence suggests higher, but I hang around in business circles and this could cause a skewing, based on the fact that Homosexuals, because they have a lower reproductive commitment, can spend higher levels of energy on business advancement.



The largest and most thorough survey in Australia to date was conducted by telephone interview with 19,307 respondents between the ages of 16 and 59 in 2001/2002. The study found that 97.4% of men identified as heterosexual, 1.6% as gay and 0.9% as bisexual. For women 97.7% identified as heterosexual, 0.8% as lesbian and 1.4% as bisexual. Nevertheless, 8.6% of men and 15.1% of women reported either feelings of attraction to the same gender or some sexual experience with the same gender. Half the men and two thirds of the women who had same-sex sexual experience regarded themselves as heterosexual rather than homosexual.[5]

Robert Berrys Response from California
"Some nice ideas there if you can get over the gay people are only that way because they can't get laid idea. An interesting study shows that men with older brothers are more likely to be gay because their mothers body changes with each successive pregnancy. This may tie in with the idea that women are more likely to pass on their DNA. Whatever the reason it is self evident that homosexuality is an integral and natural part of human and mammal kind."


I am a vehement supporter of human rights, not an apologist for homosexually. By Definition homosexuals do not get laid in a reproductive process. - fact - get over it. My propensity live as an alpha male does not rest easily with an apologetic demeanor.

If you read my article it is based on biology not sociology. I am not saying that individual specimens take up homosexuality as a result of being outcompeted, however that may well be a factor, I am not qulified to comment as a psychologist. What I am saying is  that the state of homosexuality from a biological perspective is logically a natural part of the population makeup. Homosexuality in mammilian populations perfoms the role of  a stabiliser. I further contend that the logical outcome of this argument is that this information is carried in the genetic code and it is therfore present in all humans, whether it is overtly manifested or not.  If my hypothesis is correct, then  further research in genetics will reveal a "gay gene", and it will be found in all of us. One thing is for sure - it is completely illogical and without any substance for religious groups to claim that homosexuality is unatural and based in some sociogical  foundation of sin or evil.

My interest in the subject is driven by my interest in Etymology and Pan Africanism. I find that in both of  these endeavors I keep bumping up against the Christians with their unmitigated evil. It is  a direct result of their merciless and despicable approach to humanism that people are dying here in Africa. Homosexuals are openly attacked and murdered here in townships in Africa, all in the name of GOD. This is not a first world coffee shop conversartion around hurting people's feelings. On African soil we are dealing with a different reality.  First the homosexuals - next the atheists - next white people.  Here in Africa they already carve up albinos for body parts.

If you don't stand up for the rights of minority groups, or keep silent because it is politically unconvenient, do not be surprised when noone stands up for you.
