Kenyan court upholds laws criminalizing same sex relations

A court in Kenya has upheld sections of the country’s penal code that criminalize same-sex relations. The judges’ unanimous ruling on Friday disappointed Kenya’s gay community. The laws prescribe up to 14 years in prison for people convicted of homosexual acts.

Why do people beat a dead horse over existing laws they don't like? Civil laws in an African state have no bearing on your own life, so it is safe to shun and ignore that state. It ends there. When the law changes status, then you have news. Whining isn't going to net you extra Special Snowflake points. Wield the power of journalism for less pointless endeavors.

I'm a traditionalist and I don't think criminalization is the best idea. If Kenya has that big of a problem with tolerating homosexuality, social mores discouraging it without threatening to kill anyone or do anything else highly egregious should suffice.

Gayness should not be criminal. However PUBLIC gayness should be. Children should be sheltered from all forms of non-reproductive relationships. Exposing children to 2 men kissing abd calling it normal, is like exposing children to men kissing dogs, and calling it normal. It's not normal. They have broken brains that make them not-attracted to positive(reproductive) relationships. Gays don't deserve hate, or discrimination. They deserve compassion, and pity. So as long as they carry out their broken relationships with consenting adults in private adults-only spaces, it should be legal for them to do so.

This law is based off bull shit , it’s crazy that the US doesn’t come up with some bull shit excuse to invade based off real oppression. It seems to that the only oppression you hear about is that of rich people getting what they deserve.
