JAMES’ JOURNAL (Entry 37)

Blog_James' JournalMay 15

Growing up, I think sex was one of the few uncomplicated things I knew. You were Top, Bottom, or Versatile. It really didn’t matter what you liked because it was all fun for the two parties involved, and if done right, both parties would go home quite content and happy with an afterglow. I bottomed quite happily for people because it was fun. I asked a few times if I could top (disrespectful child), and I was refused. Even by the so-called Versatiles. But oh well… I was a young one and they might have felt uncomfortable or something. I however patiently waited for my university days when, at least, I’d find even some of my age mates that we’d get to flip flop and stuff.

University has however shown me that many more unimportant things have come into defining sexual roles, making things unnecessarily complicated. I can’t even state my role comfortably without being told I should be Bottom and not Versatile. It was just some dude I met and maybe, because I wasn’t edgy or hard enough, he thought it meant I should only get it up the ass. I just smiled sheepishly at that. By the time I’m done dealing with him… Continue reading

Update On THE MISSING BROTHER Post

help1After a lot of deliberation with concerned KDians, we have decided to release iDuke’s first name. He is simply known as Ese. We thought it wise to take this step because we desperately need more information concerning the rape incident, the identity of the rapists and the last revenge which we believe he executed in November last year.

Let’s face some facts. We know that it is very possible that the guys who raped him may not be responsible for his kidnap. But let’s think like detectives for a minute. Whether these guys are guilty or not, they are the PRIME SUSPECTS in this case. Again, having taken part in a gang rape in the past, they are criminals. We need to identify them and then we will have to decide what we are willing to do to get Ese back, if possible.

We also have to consider the sensitivity of information concerning the said rape and the implications of handing over same information to the police. Knowing how our police work, the person supplying the information could be somehow roped into the case. There is a way round this problem. WE NEED a policeman or policemen who are friendly towards our community. We would then give him the full details of the story and he would decide how to handle the information in a way that would protect Ese’s identity and the identity of the person(s) supplying this information.

We need to take action! Pity is not enough! If you have any information, no matter how little or insignificant you think it may be, please inform us. You may send me an email on my address, pantherptb@yahoo.com. This is a chance to set up a system that works for us. We don’t wish it but this could happen again…to any of us.

Please, let us do something!

URGENT! Another Reason To Be Careful

A good friend of mine and fellow KDian was kind enough to share the information below that awoke a mix of emotions inside me. Apparently, our police force has decided to channel its investigative skills into apprehending – no, not armed robbers, kidnappers and terrorists, nuh-uh! – GAY PEOPLE. Yes, we’re the criminals who should urgently be gotten off the streets. And day after day, they come up with ingenious new ways to nab members of the Nigerian gay community.

Nigerian Human Rights Activist brings Lawsuit after Arrest and Unlawful Detention

nigeria_ny_antgb61Originally published on oblogdeeoblogda.me

Ifeanyi Orazulike, Nigerian activist in the field of human rights and sexual health, who was detained without cause or charge by Nigerian police, is requesting an order of enforcement against two Nigerian Government agencies for violating his constitutional rights. The detention of the activist came on the heels of a Nigerian Court throwing out a case seeking to squash the new Nigerian Anti-Homosexuality law, the Same Sex Marriage (Prohibition) Act.  The attorney who brought that case is now representing the Orazulike, who was arrested at 11.00 pm on the night of October 22nd at his office in Abuja, while celebrating his birthday together with 10 friends, well wishers and staff members.

Ifeanyi tells the story of the raid and his detention in an Affidavit attached to a motion filed in the Nigerian Federal High Court, Abuja Judicial Division, alleging he was arrested, detained and dehumanized, without charge. The motion was brought on October 24 by attorney Mike Enahoro Ebah, of Enahoro and Associates, based in Abuja, representing Ifeanyi, against The Inspector General of Police (1st Respondent)  and Abuja Environmental Protection Board (2nd Respondent.)

In his affidavit Ifeanyi asserts: Continue reading

AFTER THE LAW WAS PASSED. . .

sad-black-manI read about it on Linda Ikeji’s blog. I was at work that day and I spied something about it on my friend’s Blackberry pm, and I just knew the gossip queen, Linda would have the full gist. So I checked her blog and there it was: the signage into law of a new status quo. One that had instantly turned folks like me into potential criminals and jail prospects.

As the day drew to an end, as I monitored the blogosphere and observed the virtual war that raged between the self-righteous majority of heterosexuals and the indignant minority of gay activists, I fell to the clutches of depression. The opinions were flying with rapid-fire intensity across the internet.

The sick bastards, this is what they deserve!

Judge not that you may not be judged…

Go to hell, gays! But first of all, go to jail!

If it is your brother or sister who you discover is gay nko…

This is an abuse of a minority’s human rights!

Jonathan doesn’t realize what he has done!

God help us! God help Nigeria! Continue reading
