    Tell you what, can we send *you* over *there* to help sort it out as you're such an expect on social reform?

    And you can't come back till you've sorted it.

    So you think they should stay there and risk rape, severe beatings, life imprisonment, being ostracised by the community and either murdered by a lynch mob or given a death penalty by the government?

    Don't be so daft.

    So, in your eyes all those in the Congo who had limbs cut off should move here too?
    Nice strawman.

    Off topic, but there was an article about DR Congo in BBC News website's magazine recently: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24396390

    It is an interesting tale of a place that was not as brutal a few centuries ago and how its weaknesses have been exploited to leave it in its current predicament.

    @darkmorgado Lol wut? Strawman?!

    There's no difference between the two situations. Unless you think gay people have more rights than those having their limbs cut off.

    Stephen Fry did a thing recently on Gay people in Africa as well recently in his two-part thing about global attitudes to homosexuality.

    I while ago (last year?) that Radio 1 DJ bloke (no, not grimmy) did a docu there about it too. It's pretty damn horrific.

    Yea, Jews who fled from Nazi Germany didn't change anything there either. They should just stay there and do something about it.

    @DrStrangelove To be fair, it wasn't their country to begin with. Thus Israel was created after the war. /tinfoil hat

    Oh god. Are you "doing a Starmagic"?

    Seems so. No alcohol involved either, which makes it worse.

    Moot_Point is well on track for a full on explosion. Probably best if you don't come back this time.

    Oh yes, I had this treatment when I first joined. Being accused of being (I'm guessing here) a banned forumite.

    I suppose you have put in a complaint to the moderators saying so, yes?

    I didn't even know about that, to be honest. It was just rather reminiscent...

    This is a good point to think about if you've gone too far or if you're willing to go through with it. From my experience.

    Defamation of character seems to be the norm here, so I should have guessed what would happen. Why else would I put tinfoil hat on a comment that I know is a contentious subject, even when people have cool heads?

    Looks more like a dunces cap than a tinfoil hat from this angle, that's all.

    Saying deformation of character after insinuating Africans are going to come flooding over to the UK because of this ruling. Where's Ironoman?

    If the threat is that big, aren't all gay Africans going to flee to a place the are welcomed to escape this violence?

    It's an option for them. I'm sure many will prefer to not run from their homes however.

    And who would want a flood of black homosexuals, I guess.

    TOO MANY GAYS AND BLACKS IN THE UK AS IT IS

    Can't remember his first ID.

    I do remember the vizzini-like (albeit brief) whinging in the XCOM thread.

    Why didn't all gay British men prior to legalisation go and live in Portugal?
