I know we have an election tomorrow and sometimes in this country it feels as though we have nothing but bad parties and potential presidents to choose from, but we are a lot luckier than we realize.
Exhibit A, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni. He has been the president of Uganda since 1986 and his recent proposal is that of a man, honestly running out of ideas at this moment. I don’t really know how to best introduce this, so I will get right into it. This man wants to ban oral sex in Uganda. He stated that he was going after what he called the “outsiders” trying to get people in his country to get creative with the sexual conductor in this case “misconduct”. In a press conference, he said,
“Let me take this opportunity to warn people publicly about the wrong practices indulged in and promoted by some outsiders,”
“One of them is what they call oral sex. The mouth is for eating, not for sex. We know the address of sex, we know where sex is.”
“You push the mouth there, you can come back with worms and they enter your stomach because that is a wrong address,”
Besides this law, let us not forget that this is the same country that in 2014 signed the Anti-Homosexuality Act, making it illegal to be gay in Uganda. This law is so troubling that you can actually get arrested if you don’t report someone who is gay to the police.
