  1. Right! Bout time we donned our sequined disco pants, nipple-piercings and showed em just how gay it can get! *snap*. Where’s my pas-pawt?

  2. Drinking Baileys makes you look ‘gay’ now does it???

    Oh blimey. Best get down Canal Street quick and change my drinks order!

  3. You go girlfriend!

  4. This deserves to go viral. Men jailed for drinking Bailys. I wonder what the makers of this particular version of whiskey think about this – perhaps a warning can be stamped on the label to avoid DANGER OF INCARCERATION IF MEN DRINK THIS IRISH WHISKEY. Maybe Pink News could contact them and ask for their views.

    1. although technically, Baileys isn’t a “brand (version) of whiskey”.. it is a cream liquor with a whiskey alcohol base.

      just calling it “whiskey” makes it sound SO much more butch than it really is.

      BTW, I LOVE Baileys, but being diabetic, it is stricken from my list :-(

  5. It’d be a joke if it wasn’t so petty and hateful. How to make yourself look really, really stupid as demonstrated by a Cameroon judge.

    Yet another country poisoned by wrongful interpretations of what christianity is “meant” to mean.

    It would be hysterical if it weren’t so downright dangerous.

  7. Believe me, the reasons or excuses that make you look gay, that will come about are going to get more and more petty. It’ll be something like the way you walk, or the way you pick up a bottle say, that will be the next reason.

    Honestly, the religious world has gone bonkers.

      And needs to be stopped at the earliest time, before we find our windows being panned in.

      Their lunacy knows no ends.

    Ironically if you drink enough Baileys your vomit comes up looking like the Cameroon flag :-o

  9. The staggering stupidity of this story makes it hilarious

    What exactly did the Europeans do in Africa that they did not do in North America when they colonized it?

    1. For a start, they didn’t more or less wipe out the indigenous people (though in places like Namibia they tried their best).

    77 countries around the world are still jailing people on the very basis of sleeping with someone of their own sex!

    It is high-time that gay sex is universally decriminalised!

    “All gay men and lesbians have a universal fundamental human right to express their love, affection and express that love though sex with someone of their own sex – without being attacked, bothered, harassed, mocked, ridiculed or prosecuted and/or put though the courts or worse – jail. Every gay man or lesbian woman has a right to a partner as their boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife!”

  12. Oh, good grief. Every time you dare to think there might be a glimmer of possible progress in at least some corner of Africa, along comes news like this to shatter the hope.
