Nigerian Gay Rights Activist and humanitarian Bisi Alimi is on his rants again. In his latest outburst, it seems he finds it rather offensive and hypocritical of people who keep attending the weddings of gay men who are forced subtly by society to marry straight women.
He says there is everything wrong with that.
“We keep going to our gay friends’ wedding to straight women, even when we know it is wrong.
We come home, think about it and ask ourselves is this is really what we should be doing.”
“Our loyalty is split; do we celebrate our friends who are submitting to the pressure of the society they find themselves. Men who have refused to be the change they seek
“Or do we feel pity for the poor woman who is now caught up in this mess? A mess she consciously or unconsciously played a role in by upholding a system of oppression and suppression through homophobia.
“Or maybe, like everyone else, we just resign to fate, knowing that we are all a pawn in this game of deceits. The men, the women, the haters and the hated, we all play our roles, we live, we laugh, we cry, and we die.
“Sometimes, to be remembered in love or hate, and something to be forgotten even before we are swallowed up by the earth.
Life is what we made of it, but one thing is clear, we are never a passive passerby in this world, we leave out footprints and we will always be judged for that.”
