Must read! Chimamanda Adichie writes on the anti-gay law

Article written by award winning writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie titled 'Why can’t he just be like everyone else?'  Find it below...
I will call him Sochukwuma. A thin, smiling boy who liked to play with us girls at the university primary school in Nsukka. We were young. We knew he was different, we said, ‘he’s not like the other boys.’ But his was a benign and unquestioned difference; it was simply what it was. We did not have a name for him. We did not know the word ‘gay.’ He was Sochukwuma and he was friendly and he played oga so well that his side always won.
In secondary school, some boys in his class tried to throw Sochukwuma off a second floor balcony. They were strapping teenagers who had learned to notice, and fear, difference. They had a name for him. Homo. They mocked him because his hips swayed when he walked and his hands fluttered when he spoke. He brushed away their taunts, silently, sometimes grinning an uncomfortable grin. He must have wished that he could be what they wanted him to be. I imagine now how helplessly lonely he must have felt. The boys often asked, “Why can’t he just be like everyone else?”

Possible answers to that question include ‘because he is abnormal,’ ‘because he is a sinner, ‘because he chose the lifestyle.’ But the truest answer is ‘We don’t know.’ There is humility and humanity in accepting that there are things we simply don’t know. At the age of 8, Sochukwuma was obviously different.  It was not about sex, because it could not possibly have been – his hormones were of course not yet fully formed – but it was an awareness of himself, and other children’s awareness of him, as different. He could not have ‘chosen the lifestyle’ because he was too young to do so. And why would he – or anybody – choose to be homosexual in a world that makes life so difficult for homosexuals?

The new law that criminalizes homosexuality is popular among Nigerians. But it shows a failure of our democracy, because the mark of a true democracy is not in the rule of its majority but in the protection of its minority – otherwise mob justice would be considered democratic. The law is also unconstitutional, ambiguous, and a strange priority in a country with so many real problems. Above all else, however, it is unjust. Even if this was not a country of abysmal electricity supply where university graduates are barely literate and people die of easily-treatable causes and Boko Haram commits casual mass murders, this law would still be unjust.  We cannot be a just society unless we are able to accommodate benign difference, accept benign difference, live and let live. We may not understand homosexuality, we may find it personally abhorrent but our response cannot be to criminalize it.

A crime is a crime for a reason. A crime has victims. A crime harms society. On what basis is homosexuality a crime? Adults do no harm to society in how they love and whom they love. This is a law that will not prevent crime, but will, instead, lead to crimes of violence: there are already, in different parts of Nigeria, attacks on people ‘suspected’ of being gay. Ours is a society where men are openly affectionate with one another. Men hold hands. Men hug each other. Shall we now arrest friends who share a hotel room, or who walk side by side? How do we determine the clunky expressions in the law – ‘mutually beneficial,’ ‘directly or indirectly?’

Many Nigerians support the law because they believe the Bible condemns homosexuality. The Bible can be a basis for how we choose to live our personal lives, but it cannot be a basis for the laws we pass, not only because the holy books of different religions do not have equal significance for all Nigerians but also because the holy books are read differently by different people. The Bible, for example, also condemns fornication and adultery and divorce, but they are not crimes.
For supporters of the law, there seems to be something about homosexuality that sets it apart. A sense that it is not ‘normal.’ If we are part of a majority group, we tend to think others in minority groups are abnormal, not because they have done anything wrong, but because we have defined normal to be what we are and since they are not like us, then they are abnormal. Supporters of the law want a certain semblance of human homogeneity. But we cannot legislate into existence a world that does not exist: the truth of our human condition is that we are a diverse, multi-faceted species. The measure of our humanity lies, in part, in how we think of those different from us. We cannot – should not – have empathy only for people who are like us.

Some supporters of the law have asked – what is next, a marriage between a man and a dog?’ Or ‘have you seen animals being gay?’ (Actually, studies show that there is homosexual behavior in many species of animals.) But, quite simply, people are not dogs, and to accept the premise – that a homosexual is comparable to an animal – is inhumane. We cannot reduce the humanity of our fellow men and women because of how and who they love. Some animals eat their own kind, others desert their young. Shall we follow those examples, too?

Other supporters suggest that gay men sexually abuse little boys. But pedophilia and homosexuality are two very different things. There are men who abuse little girls, and women who abuse little boys, and we do not presume that they do it because they are heterosexuals. Child molestation is an ugly crime that is committed by both straight and gay adults (this is why it is a crime: children, by virtue of being non-adults, require protection and are unable to give sexual consent).

There has also been some nationalist posturing among supporters of the law. Homosexuality is ‘unafrican,’ they say, and we will not become like the west. The west is not exactly a homosexual haven; acts of discrimination against homosexuals are not uncommon in the US and Europe. But it is the idea of ‘unafricanness’ that is truly insidious. Sochukwuma was born of Igbo parents and had Igbo grandparents and Igbo great-grandparents. He was born a person who would romantically love other men. Many Nigerians know somebody like him. The boy who behaved like a girl. The girl who behaved like a boy. The effeminate man. The unusual woman. These were people we knew, people like us, born and raised on African soil. How then are they ‘unafrican?’

If anything, it is the passage of the law itself that is ‘unafrican.’ It goes against the values of tolerance and ‘live and let live’ that are part of many African cultures. (In 1970s Igboland, Area Scatter was a popular musician, a man who dressed like a woman, wore makeup, plaited his hair. We don’t know if he was gay – I think he was – but if he performed today, he could conceivably be sentenced to fourteen years in prison. For being who he is.) And it is informed not by a home-grown debate but by a cynically borrowed one: we turned on CNN and heard western countries debating ‘same sex marriage’ and we decided that we, too, would pass a law banning same sex marriage. Where, in Nigeria, whose constitution defines marriage as being between a man and a woman, has any homosexual asked for same-sex marriage?

This is an unjust law. It should be repealed. Throughout history, many inhumane laws have been passed, and have subsequently been repealed. Barack Obama, for example, would not be here today had his parents obeyed American laws that criminalized marriage between blacks and whites.
An acquaintance recently asked me, ‘if you support gays, how would you have been born?’ Of course, there were gay Nigerians when I was conceived. Gay people have existed as long as humans have existed. They have always been a small percentage of the human population. We don’t know why. What matters is this: Sochukwuma is a Nigerian and his existence is not a crime.

One thing about ignorant nigerians,is that, anything they don't understand or anything that is different,they call it the devil, just like twins.seeing two babies that look alike is shocking and they didn't know how to explain it,that's why they started killing twins, that's what is happening with this homosexual thing. You people don't know how to explain it, its different,that's why you rather kill gays,imprison them,instead of you to educate yourself and try to understand what homosexuality is.

I'm disappointed , a supposedly proper home grown girl like her has decided to support rubbish because she has mingled with these people who support homosexuality ??? How sad it's wrong and despite the slight ambiguous nature I pray this law stays and our leaders remain steadfast . The entertainment industry is one of the key tools of spreading this gay virus , notice how every other show on "E" has a faggot , ice lives cocoa , hello Ross , Kendra, kardashians .. Etc and the way they are painted to look cool ? Putting these wrong people on tv constantly is supposed to create acceptance and with acceptance might come participation , adiche is a disappointment, I never expected her to lend her voice and celebrated views to such an evil and wrong cause

Well captured, rounded up nicely. Leave the gays alone!!! No im not gay, but I will continue to advocate for their right to be free. Freeness to be who you are, who you want to be. Nigeria of all countries has no business on earth and in heaven to discrimate against anyone on account of being gay or lesbian solely based on religious or biblical teaching when fornication, baby mama's, cheating spouses, pedophiles for senators, governors and senators and minister fkg young girls in exchange for money. They call themselves runz girls and now, its almost acceptable like its common place idea to fk someone else in exchange for money. Its called prostitution, plain and simple. Its called adultery, its called fornication. Bible spoke against it, doesnt stop the lot of you from sinning everyday. What about the bleaching epidemic, what happened to keeping your body a holy temple for God, why show such disregard or contempt for what God made, it is these same people with the same dirty split tongue like a snake that will come and criticize, pitch stones at others lifestyle while theirs is full of dirt, disgusting filth that cannot be spoken of in public. The hypocrisy of some Nigerians makes them despicable, I spit on you GEJ and your corrupt officials for choosing to deny freedom to a group of people who have done nothing wrong but just ask to be normal everyday regular people, I spit on you hateful Nigerians that cast stones at others based on religious beliefs when your household is full of unspeakable, disgusting, satanic acts.

I doff my cap to CNA on this write up. Kai! Well said and thank you for being fearless enough to stand up to the braying mob. Like you said, we can't legislate a reality that doesn't exist into being. Gay people have always been around and will not go away. They're harming no one, so what exactly is their crime? I guess it's too much to ask that we show Christian values like tolerance, acceptance and love to gay people. We've used them up on elected robbers and false prophets.

For once, I have cause to reason differently on this issue. Gays did not create themselves and like other normal people, they too deserve to be free, they too deserve the protection of their rights by the state. They deserve to live and since the state- like individuals, cannot help them correct that deficiency, the least it can do for the gays out there as Chimamanda put it is- live and let live. I say 'no' too to the anit-gay law.

The anti-gay law must be the most senseless thing done by this administration, but the scary thing is the amount of support it generates amongst our people.

To which I reply- nigerian government pls leave my homosexual child to me and my family, try not to involve yourselves with threats of jail time for him/her! We have public officials embezzling money and even senators marrying underage girls and walking around freely. Our hypocrisy as a people knows no bounds...

How can a government where politicians sleep with bank girls (adultery) cast stones and say another 'sin' is a crime yet theirs isn't. I knew of men who acted like women but didn't know a name for it when I was young. I will still show them love and pray for their well being rather than hurl them to jail .....hypocrites , Pharisees go and remove the log in your eye before removing the speck in a gay man''s eye. Not everything is black and white. Show love to all and live agod to judge.

Nigerian leaders saw other countries debating same sex issue and pronto dey copied and even passed d law b4 some of dem. But they travel abroad all d time and see good roads, uninterrupted power supply, 1st class hospitals and other mind blowing infrastructure but NO, dem no fit copy dat one. I just feel sorry for the poor, helpless Nigerians dat r hailing dis useless law not knowing they r d real VICTIMS (apologies to Isidore Okpewho).

Sochukwuma (only God knows). To a point she is right in her argument. I have also wondered on the long term jail plan and all the violence now associated with this gay issue. In my honest opinion, I believe if the law is to be implemented well and right it should have a clause ' if found/ caught performing the act openly'. Openly here meaning indulging in view of people,not when they just hold hands and walk on the road Is it that when two guys as she said lodge into the same room supposedly due to lack of funds to pay for individual accommodation, they would be arrested or brgt out and stoned?
I personally think the law has a huge clause and some things need to be adjusted so that people will not be killed based on the assumption of being gay in word and not action.

They can't stand...... A lot of gays have choosen to be gay because of several heart breaks,,failure in marriages and etc.....


Miss Chimanda and Linda... I will only wish you all the best but don't forget that not all the glitters are gold... Lin

in as much as i agree 98% of what she wrote, the 2% being that, unconsciously, she used the homosexual stereotype by saying.................................." He was born a person who would romantically love other men. Many Nigerians know somebody like him. The boy who behaved like a girl. The girl who behaved like a boy. The effeminate man. The unusual woman."..........................not all guys that behave like girls are gay(believe it or not) and not all girls that behave like guys are lesbians too....

I don't support the act of homosexuality but the truth is from my personal experience from a 5yr old kid they can't help them self, It's just one of those things you can't and we don't have an answer or explanation for or how would you explain a 5 year old boy who likes wearing his sisters cloth and like using his mom's cosmetics, this are early signs but I'm sure he has no idea that he's gay but his parents suspect and are devastated praying day and night he does not turn out gay. Now my question is how does he at 5yrs pick his sexuality, where was the transition to his prefence at 5, God knows best , I think the law should be reviewed may be public display should be a crime not their bedroom matters. I think we need more understanding on this before we jugde them.

Truth is.... even though I speak against homosexuality, I have a family friend who was born like this... in sm small part of south-south Nigeria. We all thot it weird but now that i think abt it, he didn't choose to be that way...
Esp with all the back-lash.
I feel as a country, at this point we ought to focus on more pressing issues.

Willadebo said...

Whatever. I admire Chimamanda as a person as well as her eloquence on this topic but it doesn't mean I support all her points.

No, they have not asked for marriage but with the rate at which things are going of course it'll get to that point.
Being gay is not always a choice but some choose that lifestyle. Some started as early as high school due to the environment they found themselves (especially in boarding schools) - with the new law criminalizing it, that act will surely reduce and give those born 'normal' to live their lives uninfluenced by the abnormality surrounding them.

Before the law, gays were already coming out enmass, even forming groups, some are prostitutes openly going about their trade...just because the law was silent on it. Yes it was only a matter of time before they begin to marry.

Marriage is between man & wife. Sex is between male & female. Biologically, Logically, Soceitally & Religiously. Anything outside that is abnormal.

Legalising gay marriage means being an accessory to alter nature.
The definition of Man & Wife will change
Dad is Mum, Mum is Dad, Dad is Dad & Dad is Mum...ok I'm even getting confused already.

If being gay is normal, then having anal sex is normal...ohhh our hospitals will have to be well equipped form lots of anal reconstrution surgeries due to the rupturing of the 'excretory' organ which has been continuously pummelled by a dick all in the name of sex, also not leaving out several other diseases we'll have to put up with.

The law simply prohibits:
Public homosexual expression
Same-sex marriage & accomplices

No, I do not want gays to be jailed or killed.
Is the Law perfect? No
Will the law serve as a deterrence? Yes
Will it prevent the pollution of abnormality in the soceity? Yes

Only 15 countries in the world has legalised gay marriage so far, so what's the fuss?

If they do not intend to marry, then why are they fucking? So let's quit playing the 'right card' here as there are obviously more disadvantages of this lifestyle than advantages. The health/medical implications alone is a cause of worry considering the current state of health care.

The law only enforced what has already been soceitally refused & frowned upon. So again why is it a problem?

Think from both sides of the coin. We know what's right & wrong & it's CLEAR. I'm only being Rational.

This is by far the most objective piece I have read in the whole "criminalization of homosexuality" discourse in Nigeria. Chimamanda has coherently put things in perspective and I hope the pro criminalization camp will read this and perhaps reconsider their stance. I am persuaded by this article that it is not right to make it a crime despite my personal/spiritual orientation.

Being gay is a total derailment from normality. What will prove attractive in a fellow of the same sex to u if not a demon at work in your body, soul and spirit.... let's leave the law of the bible now. Even physics which is a worldly subject says opposites attract.....the bible says bring up your child in the way he should go and when he is old he shall not depart from it....if you are a parent and your child is displaying such behaviour responsibility is laid on you to strongly correct such....if I may ask how will they give birth? Are we now going against the law of procreation? Plssssssss......God made man to av muscles and He made the woman soft for a reason...muscle come dey attract muscle....chai.....Please if u are a parent bring up your children in d way he shd go and when he is old he shall not depart from it....nice grammatical diaplay wt ur write-up but if every man was gay will u b married and if ur husband turned gay I guess u will gt placards and advocate for him too.....God deliver us from insanity...God bless Nigeria

The truth is Nigerians' ignorance is our downfall. We are too arrogant and proud to admit our faults. This gay law issue is a distraction same as tribalism in the workplace to cover up corruption and government ineptitude. It was passed knowing how emotional people get over trivial issues and still surprises me how we keep falling for things like this time without number. After all is said and done 2015 victory is already guaranteed to which political party promises us good roads, water and light (Same problems we've had since the birth of the nation) and then fail to execute same promises.

Chimamanda, u actually made me think again after reading dis, not dt i wil support being gay no 2 ways abt it, its a NO 4 me but i actually remembered my cousin whom we named OME KA NWANYI while we were growing up. He plays wt girls only, does girls stuff, makes up wt his mums make up kit & does it so well & did i 4 get, he cooks so well now dt we are all grown. We dint take his behaviour 2 mean anything then. Could he be gay?

I think the best judgement for this issue is anybody can be wit whoeva dey wnt 4 how long dey wnt but no marriage (no husband and husband or wife and wife title)

Being gay is not a crime, it's a state of being. Just like I'm a woman and it's just what I am.

Shame on us all for our eagerness to visit America where people have fought for the rights of minorities like gays. Whereas we cannot raise our voice protection of the weak among us.

Let the voices of influence among us speak out like Chimamanda against this gross injustice to our gay brothers and sisters.

the answer to all your questions is salvation,if you have Jesus in your life, it will be clear that Homosexuality is a sin, no matter how intelligent you are or how well read you are, if you dont have Jesus in your life, you are empty and foolish. Instead of supporting the act of homosexuality, lets pray for the people involved in this degrading act. I live in America, and have seen how the so called "world power" is suffering , we are having unexplainable weather conditions, California is suffering from drought, people are loosing jobs every day, the economy is getting worse, and it just reminds me of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. Let us pray against the wrath of God. God who made them Man and woman knew exactly what he was doing, let us not quetsion the Almighty. wether you paint it in another color or call it a different name, the fact remains the a man sleeping with another man or a woman doing the same is commiting a grave sin. Please repent, we are in the last days,., a word is enough for the wise.

We knew they were different but they did not typically show affection for the same sex because they were raised in a society that encourages heterogeneity.
This western homo propaganda is the problem.
Now Sochukwu will grow up thinking he should love a fellow man and the society will label him gay even if he may really not be.
You could be so close to one of the same sex and just be best of friends in the past but not today cuz everyone will think you're gay. That's the problem with this homo propaganda.
Yesterday transexuality was a psychiatric problem, today it is normal for a man with children to decide he no longer wants to be a man but a woman and it's 'normal'.
Tomorrow pedophilia will be normal because they can't help loving children.
I don't think it's okay to imprison someone for 14yrs because he is gay but I agree it shd not be legalised.
Stop shoving this down our throats.
Children shd not be raised by gays because children shd be allowed to form their thot processes without forcing an 'unnatural' way of life on them. If such r/ship cannot naturally produce children, then children shd not be there in the first place. That's child abuse.

Alloy Chikezie said...

She is absolutely right, being gay is a sin, but not a crime, so should not be criminalised, let God be the judge, and not humans, we should all live together in peace as one, the ant-gay law should be repealed, how can we pass a 14yrs jail term for people who are not harmful to the society, who are friendly, but are different from us by their sexuality, being gay is a sin, just like adultery, fornication, stealing, idolatry, drunkiness, etc should we now criminalise everything that's considered a sin in the sight of God? No!

So same sex is a sin, but not a crime, the only law that should be passed is that, legal marriage between same sex will not be passed into law in Nigeria, but gays should have their freedom to life and expression of sexuality Its time we protest against this anti-gay law.

THE ANT-GAY LAW SHOULD BE REPEALED

One of d few privileged Nigerians who have been "Americanized."
This is how living abroad can easily change people's mentality, and they completely lose their moral rectitude and core values.
It's about our future as a people(procreation), it's about our culture as Nigerians and it's about our religions (God condemns it and it even made Him destroy Soddom and Gomorrah).
I bet those Americans have bought u bcos they believe u r popular with Nigerians but trust me, even a million piece of these articles can't change that law bcos that's what Nigerians want.

Abiola said...

I appreciate her effort in putting up this lengthy epistle but I think I have questions to ask her. I would state that my argument against homosexuality is not at all from a religious point of view. If I may ask, are people born gay ? The story of Sochukwuma as said her the author did not indicate that Sochukwuma is a gay. Having a feminine body or behaving in a feminine way does not transcend into being gay. Being gay and having a feminine look are 2 different things. She made mention of homosexuality as a crime or not, as she explains what a crime is. I think there is need to put her on some little mathematics and before I do that , there should be an answer to your question. Yes, homosexuality is a crime against the future of thr society. As much as I know , 10 gay couples will probably eliminate 20 children (the future of the society), even though she wrote that gays in Nigeria are yet to ask for same-sex marriage. But I must state that, one of the best gift of a man is to see far beyond his nose. A yoruba adage says 'you cut the branches of an iroko tree in its prime lets it becomes too gigantic for you to handle in future. We won't wait till they ask for marriage before we pass a law against such act. Save the future, homosexuality is a NO NO NO.
