Those damn un-Austrafrican Queers

(Via Harry) No marrying for queers in Nigeria; they're "un-African" according to the A-G.

I'd point out how stupid and pig-ignorant, as well as demonstrably irrational, this statement is, but given both major parties in Australia support a watered-down version of the same policy, it's hardly worth the energy.

We don't go so far as to have offences relating to mass gatherings of queens, perhaps due to the economic benefit derived from Mardi Gras. However I wonder if the Nigerians have gone so far as to give their laws extra-territorial reach?

It takes dedication and focus to give your ignorance extra-territorial reach...
