Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, a conservative evangelical Christian, wants to ban oral sex because “the mouth is for eating, not for sex.”
Museveni, who signed a law making homosexuality illegal in Uganda in 2014, issued a public warning concerning the supposed dangers of oral sex during a televised press conference last week.
At the press conference Museveni said:
Let me take this opportunity to warn our people publicly about the wrong practices indulged in and promoted by some of the outsiders.
One of them is what they call oral sex. The mouth is for eating, not for sex.
We know the address of sex. We know where sex is.
RT reports on Museveni’s questionable background:
An evangelical conservative, Museveni has led a crackdown on sexual freedoms in Uganda in recent times. His proposal to ban all oral sex follows the signing of the Anti-Homosexuality Act in 2014 which made it illegal to be gay in Uganda. Under the law, repeat offenders were to be sentenced to 14 years in prison and Ugandans were required to denounce known homosexuals.
Also in 2014, after introducing Anti-Homosexuality Act, Museveni claimed that oral sex could cause worms, declaring:
Museveni is not alone in his religious extremism. The Right Reverend Charles Wamika, Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Jinja, praised the Ugandan Parliament for the Anti-Homosexuality Act that provides life in prison for LGBT people. In fact, Bishop Wamika encouraged parents to turn over their gay and lesbian children to government authorities for re-education and imprisonment in a chilling and disturbing 2014 Easter address.
You push the mouth there, you can come back with worms and they enter your stomach because that is a wrong address.
In addition, and also in 2014, the State Minister for Ethics & Integrity in Uganda, the Right Reverend Father Simon Lokodo, said that men raping girls was natural, while suggesting that heterosexual rape was morally preferable to consensual homosexual activity.
Bottom line: Fellatio and cunnilingus will no longer be on the menu in Uganda. Weep for the nation, weep for the people.
