A MOST disgraceful trend of things is sweeping across Guyana, and believe you me, it’s homosexuality. In this once colourful country, fragrant with the innocence of bare-footed country folk and merriment of calypso rhythms, a dark shadow is now creeping into the daily activities of the locals.
Maybe, it is in the name of modernisation, maybe perversion or just plain presumption. The fact is, someone has to speak out. The mullahs, priests and pandits have to take the platform and address this most disgraceful state of affairs. In times of crisis those vested with power need to draw the line between decent folk and uncultured and loose people.
If not, what have we become then? Is it okay if a man is whistling or blowing kisses at a passer-by? Even if the passer-by is of the same sex! Is it right that a total stranger just drives his vehicle and squeezes upon the back of your vehicle when there is parking space? Many such
indecency and ‘passes’ are being made upon innocent and unassuming citizens.
People are trying to ignore or avoid it, but since it is an abnormal condition we are all inwardly distressed.The police are not cooperating either.
Sir, whoever is behind this, whether politicians, comedians, flirts, punks or celebrities, it is a real mean and ugly joke. People do not go about showing off their sexuality in the open. It is downright uncivil and primitive as a nation which seeks to attain a good name, repute and respect so as to attract investors, for example.
It is the people who make a nation. Homosexuality is certainly a perversion of Guyanese creole culture. It needs to be nipped in the bud before it is too late! Imagine a young lad bringing his boyfriend home and telling mom and dad that it is his boyfriend -’THERESA’. What an ugly state of things.
Please, someone, do something about this lowly and demoralising issue which is occurring daily among local folk! I’m calling on the Bishop of Georgetown, the mayor and noble citizens, please implement a new law about so-called sexual behaviour unless we all come down with the epidemic of AIDS or lawlessness!
please don’t publish my name
