BECOME A GAY THEN BY MARTIN BECK NWORAH




From the start,I want to make it clear I have nothing against gays but those advocating for their rights who are not . If its cool to be an activist advocating for gay rights,why not become one then? After all,the best way to preach a gospel is by example. Ngozi Adichie wrote an article few days ago in defence of gays and I really love her piece. I have just one advice for her,
"Become a gay please". I have friends who are lesbians,homosexuals,those who "do it" with animals(especially dogs and goats) and I'm cool with them. The issue of their sexuality is a topic we don't bring up because we share divergent views about it. When it comes to gays,I'm indifferent about it all. After all,we are not sure who is doing the right thing or not. We are acting based on what we think is best for our human society.
For Nigeria and her anti-gay law,its all good. The strong point I'm just trying to make is simple;if you must fight for gay rights,become one. You have to practice what you preach and be proud of it. "I'm gay and I'm proud of it,I'm the President of the United States of America"...that's what we need. You cannot marry a woman,bear children and you are advising us to keep our sexual orientation as gays. NO! You must practice what you preach. But if you're not so keen in becoming one as you advocate the rights,then shut up. I'm sick and tired of people shouting that gays should be left alone,can you as a staff of Fidelity Bank,be shouting at the employers at UBA to pay her staff? If you must shout,then you must be one of them.
Being gay is cool and I believe if everybody was open like Ellen about their sexual orientation,all these rantings will stop. I don't hate gays and I don't like them. Like I said,I'm indifferent about them and I have them as friends. The only problem they have is with their sexual orientation which many acquired as a result of what the society made them to become. The society ofcourse should not be blamed for our failure in life because we must take responsibility for our actions.
So to all the gays in Nigeria,my advice to you is very clear. Come out in the open and tell the world that you're gay. You will be prosecuted and sent to prison for 14 years because its against our laws. But at least,you're suffering for what you believe in "abi"? At least,by the time a handful of gays are in prison,the government may construct a separate jail for you. To those advocating for gay rights who are not gays,please become one. Practice what you preach. Chimamanda Adichie and other public figures advocating for gays in Nigeria,please become a gay. The prison is not exclusive to some people alone,it can as well accommodate the rest of you. So return to Nigeria and become a gay.
Till we get to the Promised Land,I shall be waiting for when you will pass a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.

  1. This piece is so so shallow and stupid on so many levels, don't even no where or how to start. Just going to say this. Mr. A personally doesn't like yellow shirts, Mr. B likes yellow shirts. Mr. C castigates Mr B for wearing yellow shirts. Mr. A tells. Mr. C to lock up and let Mr. B be, cos after all, its his life and his business. Does that mean Mr. A likes yellow shirts??? DUUUUDE!!!

  2. Your logic is flawed in more ways than one. The "gospel" in this case is that everyone has a right to choose their sexuality and being straight is part of exercising that right.
    Am sorry to say, but your quest to be "famous" or to do something "cool" has literarilly made you the dumbest person on the planet. This is the problem with we nigerians (sorry to say), we try as much as possible to put all logical reasoning aside just because we think we know best. Being "indifferent" is stupid, people die because of these issues and you are "indifferent"? Open your mind dude. Take a chill and re-read everything you wrote, half of it doesn't make sense.
