    Before I found out that basically the whole world was gay over the summer I remember reading about a cross dressing tribe from my college history book. I'm not going to bother looking it up because it would take a good while, so I just did a internet search and surprised to find out there's a whooole bunch of tribes in Africa that cross dress, with feminine husbands to boot. now you guys can still pretend like the whole world hasn't been gay forever ( I say since Yaweh created the white races ) but I would really like for someone to post and explain how the heck are there some many homosexual, cross dressing tribes in Africa?

    Cross-Dressing Magic

    Intersexuals & Feminine Husbands

    Africa offers a great range of gender crossing types, more so than any other continent on Earth. There are examples of crossing gender by both sexes, there are cases of men and women taking on the roles of the opposite sex without adopting the appropriate dress, and there are rituals in which one or both sexes cross-dress for the period of the ceremony only.
    The Magic of Cross-Dressing

    When female diviners of the Zulus are called upon to forecast rain they carry the spears and shields of warriors, the symbols of male potency to pierce the clouds. Among the
    Masai boys are dressed as girls during their initiation into warrior hood. The Sotho of South Africa dress their girls in boys' clothing for their initiation into womanhood. When a man in the Bangala tribe of the Congo is attacked by an evil spirit he dresses as a woman in the hope that the disguise will fool the demon. Zulu men put on women's girdles at a time of drought hoping this would bring sympathy from the rain gods. These are examples of cross-dressing to induce a magical change in certain circumstances. The idea of temporarily donning the clothing of the opposite sex for the purpose of seeking supernatural help is not confined to African societies, but can also be found among some native Brazilian, Papuan and Asian societies. They all have one thing in common: the belief that a change of clothes will bring about a change of luck.

    I would say, with all respect, that I am a bit lost as to where you're heading with this.
    In your examples, you say that they put on the clothing for some ritual. But in your very first sentence, you use the word "Gay". They are clearly 2 different areas that you are speaking of, as gay usually means a homosexual lifestyle.
    So I'd really like to know what you're elluding to with this.

    I assume that a man or men that wear women clothes and are feminine have sex with other men. Call me crazy but that's just the way I think.

    For the past two years or so I have read the Black Roots Science e-book. According to the e-book Yahweh along with his wife and other volunteers ( who eventually become the Elohim ) created the white race and everything that was the total opposite of God. Basically he turned the world upside down from good to evil. What was up was now down. The Black Roots Science e-book did not specifically state that yahweh created Homosexuality but I assumed that he did. These are my conclusions that I took from the book.

    Basically the reasoning behind this thread is when did Homosexuality began? We all know that Africa is "traditionally" anti- homosexual but like I said i did read about a cross dressing tribe in my college history book and found out through my own personal experiences that basically everyone in the world was gay.

    I think homosexuality began when Yahweh created the white races but maybe I'm wrong. The Black Roots Science e-book says our Ancestors began degenerating there 'perfect' bodies about 44,000 years before the birth of Yahweh to prepare for the coming of evil, decay. Maybe homosexuality started when they began degenerating there bodies?

    Do a search on these boards and you will find threads about Black Roots Science.

    Wow! And the book goes on to say...

    in addition to the Azande tradition of homosexual apprenticeships for youth training to be warriors, researchers have also reported hierarchical homosexual relationships between dominant adult males and youths among numerous tribal peoples, an example being the Fang, a large tribal group living in what is now Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. During periods when religion forbids heterosexual intercourse. mossi chiefs in Burkina Faso will indulge in sexual relations with adolescent males. The Ubangi tribes of the Congo regared women as existing essentially for procreation, and adolescent males for pleasure.

    I am no expert in this area, but I have read into some studies concerning 'homosexuality in Africa'.

    A few days ago I mentioned the dramas relating to the 'Mysteries of Osiris and Isis' which were perverted over time. Notice the lower part of Osiris in many depictions and he looks like a fish or mermaid. I also mentioned in another thread concerning Jesus and 'Virgin birth' that the concept relates to parthenogenesis.

    So, what you are confusing is that the so called cross dressing during RITUAL is in recognition that our earliest ancestors, before they took human form were androgynous. Which is to say GENDERLESS.

    And I am willing to bet that some of the languages spoken by some of the people concerned also are GENDERLESS which means they have no specific feminine or masculine vowels, etc.This point was made to me years ago by a friend from South Africa.

    For example, in Akan, the name Amma, is feminine. In contrast, Amma is the name of a male deity to the Dogon.

    This is why I am very skeptical of studies by white people made since the 70s and white women in particular who have a feminist agenda. They serve as modern cultural imperialists promoting a LGBT agenda among Africans.

    As usual to me (from experience) when white people attempt to talk about the VARIOUS African histories and traditions it is nearly ALWAYS out of context and above their grade of understanding. This is why if it didnt come from the mouth of a neutral and preferably African scholar I generally disregard it because there is NO ONE to back it up and specifically put it into context.
