“Probably they have been influenced by gays who have gone to the national parks and behaved badly,” tweeted Ezekiel Mutua, head of the Kenyan Film Classification Board. “I don’t know, they must have copied it somewhere or it is demonic. Because these animals do not watch movies.”
We’re not sure how many gay tourists are rushing to Kenya game parks: No only is homosexuality punishable by up to 14 years in jail in the country, but a judge ruled last year that forced anal exams are constitutional.If our lions begin this homosexual behaviour then that will surely be the end of the animal species. https://t.co/JL5wGR4NHW— Dr. Ezekiel Mutua (@EzekielMutua) November 2, 2017
"Mutua insisted the “lion love birds” seen in Masai Mara needed counseling. He also suggested they be studied, if only to confirm they were both indeed male," says Dan Avery.
“I mean, where on Earth have you ever heard something like this happening. The demonic spirits inflicting in humans seems to have now caught up with the animals,” Mutua added. “That is why I will say isolate the crazy gay animals, study their behavior because it is not normal.”
"But this is just the latest example of his rabid homophobia: Last month, Mutua banned the Disney Channel show Andi Mack because one of the characters came out as gay, says Dan Avery.
Twitter Users made fun of Mutua’s concern:
The lions have influenced these cows. It's the end of all animal species 😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/gBDxDfSRA6— Harambee (@JesseKenya) November 3, 2017
I also find Mutua's concern very funny. It is almost unimaginable, how stupid undemocratic regimes are. In Kenya, many people are very poor. And this government must fight poverty. Homosexual behaviors are natural. Many animals are gay. There are countless studies, and these studies prove that many animals are really gay. It is always very funny if someone is so stupid and does not know our wild and diverse nature.The fact that you ain't used to it doesn't make it bizarre.. so you only have sex when you want to procreate? #itsnatural #letthembe— The way forward KE (@Thewayforwardke) November 3, 2017
It is always stupid to fight against diversity.
