Senegal is where half-naked people eating dirt; living in caves; and swinging on vines is considered acceptable adult behaviour; isn't it?
.
From this news story; they certainly act like it
.
Maybe a couple of boatloads of foreign aid gone missing will jog them into civility

Yes, I'm sure the quality of living is much better in Senegal than in Switzerland.

You might agree, if you'd ever been to either place.

And what sentence would they pass on the hetero couples that procreated these men ? If they're looking for a fault to punish they have a very , very convoluted way to go .. right into the the first appearance of man on our planet and the way his mind and body works .. Are they qualified ? Doubtful .. They'll go on taking the easy way out through their bibles and their all too human god , no doubt .

Back from Switzerland so soon, LITTLE liar?

A little cowardly liar who is too afraid to own his hatred. Typical little liar behavior.

It's so refreshing to see the African nations making a stand for decency, morality and family values!

I can see how a Bulgarian such as yourself living in Africa with half-naked people eating dirt; living in caves; and swinging on vines; would be refreshing

Bulgaria is not exactly the shining star of Europe

Romania is

Quit spamming the board, "hans", "franz" "ivan", "sven", "pierre", "chad" or whoever you are. You're childish, boring, and a nuisance. Leave.

African nations are rife with problems like people hacking up albino children into parts for their magical protective properties. Your Americanized superstitions don't help matters. Decency, morality and family values can include more than just clones of yourself.

I don't know....?
Maybe prisons work differently in Senegal?

Wouldn't sending homosexuals to prison - be like sending an alcoholic to Napa Valley for a wine tasting,- or, sending a pedophile to Disney World.

One might think that a punishment would only be a punishment if one is constrained from doing (while incarcerated)- what they are being locked up for.

Sending people to a place where homosexual practices are all but mandatory for being homosexuals - sounds like more of a reward than a penalty.

Maybe its more creepy if one has no say in selecting one's assailant.

They are in luck though.

I agree

Jail space is too dang expensive to waste on people who turn it into an epic tailgate party on the taxpayer's dime

This is the reason I suggested that gay prisoners be locked up in the much cheaper Hilton or the W

Queers love going to jail. They can suck all the d!ck they want and get gang banged day and night. What more could a queer ask for?
