  1. Labour and the coalition parties all pander to the right wing media and argue over who can be the vilest when it comes to asylum and immigration policies. I’m just glad Caroline’s there to speak up for LGBT asylum seekers.

    The discrimination on LGBT people is everywhere in the world. Like stigma, harassment and attacks of gays, lesbians and bisexual are sometimes unbearable. What two or more consenting adults decide to do in private should not be the business of anybody. The freedom we want for ourselves should be the freedom that we should want for others, homosexuals and lesbians not excepted. The media, religious bodies some civil society associations and organizations sometimes condemn same sex relationship and marriages. News of killing and molesting of Gays and lesbians is rampant.

    With all of these recorded events, when will people wake up to the call of gay and lesbians rights and hearken to the cry of activist in Africa? As long as what gays, Lesbians and bisexuals practice do not affects us, we should let them be.

    Same sex through relationship. Throughout history `gays and bisexuals lesbians have been made fun of persecuted or killed .They have been branded as sexual perverts and filthy. People who are against same sex relationships should know that it is the make-up of people in same sex relationship to be what they are.

    Same sex relationships should not affect those who think there is only one accepted way of sexual relationships between a male and a female. If these people in same sex relationship do not go out of the way to condemn heterosexuals why should gays and lesbians and bisexuals condemn.

    Those who support and advocate for samesex relationship are considered odd or eccentric and sometimes downright crazy.

    Let me state that gay rights activists do what they do in defense of the rights of gay people as long as such sexual practice do not infringe on the rights of others.

    People against samesex relationships think that such relationships are sinful, harmful, immortal and unnatural.

    It is the business of same sex couples to worry about that. If we are living in a global village and a free world, we should give those in samesex relationships the freedom we want for ourselves, as long as such freedom do not affect others.

    Same-sex, they say, is hormonal. If ones hormonal impulse directs ones to go for the same sex, who are we to say it should not be that way? It is time the people of the world wake up and realizes that sexual behavior cannot be controlled. Either you are what you are or something else when it comes to sexual behavior.
