Bisexual men in marriages - ladies opinion

I personally know a few men in this Lagos who are married but at the same time doing men. You will be shocked at who some of these men are. Now I'm thinking to myself if I know this dude is into men and I'm not that close to him, how in the world doesn't his wife know? She lives with him!

And then, there are women who know and still marry these men...or find out after they've married the men and still stay in the relationship...and you wonder...why? Look at this profile above...found on a gay dating site.

What's the number one reason why any woman would chose to be in a marriage with a bisexual man and even support his lifestyle?

I do not have a study report but the rate at which gay/bisexual men are getting married in this country either as a result of family pressure or just to live up to society norm is alarming. And yes, many of these women know and they chose to go along with it. Why? Would you marry a man who you know is bisexual? And if so, why?

Sudanese woman sentenced to death for apostasy 'to be freed'

The Sudanese Government today said it will free Mariam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman sentenced to death by hanging for denouncing her Islamic religion.

A Sudanese Under-secretary at the foreign ministry Abdullahi Alzareg said Sudan guaranteed religious freedom and was committed to protecting the woman. He said Meriam would be free from prison in a matter of days.
Meanwhile her lawyer, Elshareef Ali Mohammed has expressed reservations over the government's new position, saying they are just trying to divert international attention from the case and that he doubts she would be freed soon
"It’s a statement to silence the international media. This is what the government does. We will not believe that she is being freed until she walks out of the prison. If they were to release her, the announcement would come from the appeal court and not from the ministry of foreign affairs. But at least it shows our campaign to free Meriam is rattling them. We must keep up the pressure.” he said
Meriam gave birth to her second baby in prison on Tuesday May 27th.

19-yr-old, who tested HIV-positive after she was gang-raped, seeks justice

Found this story on The Nation. So heartbreaking. Read below...
 Helen (surname withheld) will be 20 years on October 10. But she now bears a burden that is too heavy for her age. She was gang-raped in January this year and was diagnosed with HIV last month. Due to the heart-rending experience and the medical diagnosis that followed, the once cheerful and vivacious Helen now wears a long face as she carries with her the psychological burden of the experience.
After secondary school in 2008, Helen wanted to further her education, but being the fifth of 11 children comes with its own challenge. “Na the condition of no money, na im prevent me from going further,” said Helen when asked why she had not bothered to continue her education.

'Fuji music is very dangerous' - Singer Etcetera writes

Singer turned Punch Columnist Etcetera writes on why Fuji music is dangerous. Read below...
Fuji music and I got divorced at a street carnival on October 1st, 2010. I just couldn’t take it anymore and thought it best that we went our separate ways. I guess the feeling was mutual because that was the same day I recovered my sanity and my personal cool.
What would I become if I wasn’t aware of myself anymore? Unlike many adults, I have no stomach for music that makes me want to vandalize my home and for some crazy reasons; I have discovered that some fuji songs that are popular right now make you want to assess your mental state. The simple truth is one can’t remember any of such songs getting posted daily on blogs. I can only recognise a handful of artistes mentioned by some die-hard and unrepentant fanatics in my hood.

I Saved My Life And Left My Child To Die (Femme Lounge Stories)

A story written by Femme Lounge contributor. Read below
I was in the kitchen trying to make a fast dinner after a long day, when I heard gunshots at my front door. I ran out through the back door, climed on the tap attached to the wall, jumped over the fence and hid in the bushy uncompleted building beside my house. 
I could still hear gunshots from where I hid, clearly, the robbers were in my house. I was trembling were I was and couldn’t think straight until I heard my three year old daughter screaming mummy from a distance. I had put her to..continue...

"When I got the award, I came and met my team, the Royal Arts Academy, and we all hugged and took pictures. As I was going back to my seat, Ibinabo got up and hugged me and beckoned the photographers to take our picture. As I stepped away, Rita Dominic also got up and hugged me and also asked the press photographers to take our pictures.
“When we got to the airport, Teco Benson came to me and said he wanted to minister to me and he also beckoned to her and she came close. I told Teco that I didn’t have anything against Ibinabo. This is an AGN issue. We should be real about the issue. The following day, somebody called me and told me about the picture. I was surprised,” Clarion tells Punch

When flaming gay men turn straight and then have babies..

How did this happen? Lol. It's really a miracle when a flaming gay man, who has lived proudly as a gay man almost all his life turns straight and then have a baby with a woman. Who remembers Antoine Dodson? He's the gay guy who became an internet sensation back in 2010 when he famously helped his sister fend off an attempted rapist ... and told a reporter, "Hide ya kids, hide ya wife, hide ya husbands ... cause they rapin' everybody out here." lol. Y'all remember him?

Well, he's now a father. He announced on twitter yesterday that he and his girlfriend have welcomed a son...and proudly showed off his new family.

In 2013, Antoine announced that his religion 'Hebrew Israelite' had cured his 'gayness' and that he planned to have a family of his own. Well, it's happened. Halleluyah! :-). See more photos after the cut...
