Oh my word, that is too funny, you are basing your comment on a skynews/abc broadcast, on youtube??? You're joking right? Really? I was going
to keep quiet about all your comments, but when I saw the one where you are basing a belief about SA on a youtube video done by a non SA news program,
I just could no longer be quiet.
Ok, you know what,I've lived here my whole life, I was born here, and I've never even gone cross border. But "fleeing from Sharia Islamic horrors"?
This is news to me, when did this happen???
Ok, num. 1. SA is not part of Uganda, we are very, very far apart, in fact we are 2,388.40 km, from border to border, in miles that would be 1484.08
and you have to drive through 3 countries to get there, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Tanzania. That's going as the grow flies, shortest distance
I know we have a lot of BS going on in SA, but take it from the horse's mouth, Sharia Islamic horrors is not one of them. As for gays being treated
... not so well here, now THAT does happen, I don't deny it. As I'm sure every country has it's own fair share of a group of people that have taken
it upon themselves that they can go around judging gays to hell and make their lives a living hell. As for me, my cousin is gay, and I love him to
pieces. Does he think that his kind keeps the world in balance, no of course not. He just wants to be accepted for who and what he is, and so he is,
by his whole family and all his friends and loved ones. Has he run into this group of "righteous a(bleep)s. Of course he has.
Do I think that my kind does? lol, look at the world, it doesn't seem in balance to me, so the way I see it neither can at the moment.
But to actually base something you believe from a youtube video of a news-program that non South-African?
dude, no, you can't do that. If I
had to believe everything that I heard from a South African based news program about other countries, lol, then I would have to believe that America
is currently in a total state of anarchy, that England's queen had no right to treat our president the way she had. That Russia is extremely
peaceful, loving and quiet, so is N Korea and China and we should help them wherever possible. That the U.N. is evil and back to America, that
EVERYBODY is poorer than poor except for Bill Gates and we must support this wonderful humanitarian.
See what I mean? You want to know what's going on in SA? Come visit us ... and please stay with your tour group at ALL times, do not wonder off, do
not attempt to go see the "real" South Africa late at night by yourself. That's just stupid, not even we do that
But your tour-guide won't
lead you into danger, so stick with em, they are showing you the "real" South Africa, they just trying to not get you killed, by going late at night
one at a time. No I'm not a tour guide
What's going on late at night, is not Sharia Islamic horrors, it's criminal horrors. The killing of
lesbians, is not exactly a "sweep", there has been a couple. And it wasn't by Sharia Islamic horrors, it was by these ... in proudly South African
Afrikaans: flippen mal moere that I keep telling you about.
As for these guys that said it was ok, lol, these guys also support polygamy. That wives belong pregnant and in the kitchen taking care of their too
many kids, while they go off gallivanting around drinking out all their money. If I'm not mistaken they are actually interviewing in a bar, lol. I
don't hear you complaining about that? You are watching two guys, that probably already had a couple. Would they actually do that? ... yes, it's
one of their traditions to become a man by raping a woman, any woman. But once again, it's not Sharia Islamic horrors, it's a cultural tradition
thing that they have to now unlearn in the New South Africa, and many are fighting against it, because their history, their culture is everything to
them. It's not a simple thing to bridge, I'm not saying it's right, good grief, no. But it's not simple, the New South Africa is still young, it'll
take a while to get past these old traditions.
As for putting Uganda and SA in the same basket, you really can not do that. Do you have any idea how many different cultures there are in SA? There
are 11 recognized ones. That's just South Africa. Now cross the border into Zimbabwe, and you have a complete different set altogether. Each
language spoken here, represents a different culture, with different traditions and each country has it's own set, and they don't really get along
that well with each other. heard of zeno-phobia? Heard what they do to each other if they catch somebody from a different country working here, in
their midst? And you want to put SA and Uganda in the same basket? lol. Sorry bud, you just simply can't do that, they are completely different
people, with different cultures and traditions, not only do you want to put them in the same basket, you want to cross 3 countries, each with their
own cultures, to do it.
As for Credo admitting being bi
Now see it's so obvious you know nothing about SA. It seems to be a thing here, most of em turn bi at some
point or another. I'm not sure why, could be something linked to a tradition that they have, I'm not sure, I don't think so though, haven't heard of
one like that. But there are many traditions and cultures here in SA, so I guess it could be possible, but unlikely. But we see em all the time and
they're not shy about it. It's honestly not an odd thing to come across a bi/gay couple walking hand in hand down the street. Girls are harder to
know, because girls generally hold hands anyway, bi/gay or not. But the boys are holding hands for being bi/gay, and you see em just as much as you
see the girls that are not. We are so used to it, that nobody thinks funny of it anymore, except of course that strange group of "self-righteous"
"bleep"s, who mostly just corner the gays in their clubs, which is why their clubs are so hard to find. You know of it by word of mouth only. If you
want to know more about SA from a South African, feel free to ask, but don't jump to conclusions based on some youtube video done by a non SA news
program. They know just about as little as you do. And thinking that you do, is actually an insult. So much for keeping the balance there, buddy.
