    First I have to just say----WOW!!!!!!! I’ve had major debates with Nigerians and other Africans for years about the presence of homosexuals in their societies. They simply couldn’t accept it. IMO, almost all homosexuals, especially the males, are born that way; it’s not a learned behavior. Since they are born that way, why would they ONLY be born and found in the west as all of the Africans, I’ve ever talked to about this, believe? This kind of thinking can run your train totally of the track. I think that sometimes, some Black folks go way overboard attributing everything we think is bad to white people and everything we think is good to Black folks.

    About those toys, well, alright now! Toys are fun!!!

    Could you show and prove how any homosexual of any society is "born that way"?

    For a condition to be perceived from birth, means that there is a set of genetics to spawn it.

    Since there have been no means of proof for a "gay gene", what means do you have to substantiate such an assertion?

    PEACE

    Thanks Brotha Pan,

    What really excites me about the movement Dorothy is sprearheading is that unlike the sexual revolution in the US they're aiming to help couples come together and understand each other. That way they are likely to see far less of the backlash we've seen here where the movement was/is about women rising against what they perceive as the all powerful male chuvenist. Our Nigerian sistas are rising with rather than against their men. That's going to make all the difference in the world.

    As for lesbianism well I think if it really is a learned behavoir due to social ills then why not spend all the effort and energy dealing with the root rather than trying to suppress the symptoms? Knowamsane? Deal with the social ills if that's really the problem.

    This is good. More cultures of the world need to start teaching men and women how to embrace feminine sexuality. Women enjoying sex better makes it more pleasurable for men as well.

    Precisely, which is the source of the entire problem.

    It's next to impossible to change the mindstate about sex, when the religious mindstate that predominates and dictates it remains unchanged, and nearly unchangeable.

    PEACE
