In Trinidad & Tobago it carries a prison term of 85 years to life for adults. There is also an immigration ban for gays, including tourists, and they are not welcome to travel there and gay people who do travel anyway, if discovered to be gay, get sent to prison for a minimum term of 85 years. This also applies to a gay couple who may be considered married or in a civil partnership in other countries. This was an amendment passed to the 19th century act as recently as 2000.
Somehow this "gay ban" on the doorstep of the US never raised any eyebrows nor caused any demonstration there. It is not a temporary thing like Trump's "Muslim ban", it has been on place for 180 years.
So where are all the virtue signalling actors? Where are the US judges calling for this to be reviewed in an international court for human rights? Where the the protesting diplomats and politicians?
Surely when we see utter silence on one issue and screaming hysteria on another we are permitted to ask if perhaps there are other motives at play?
I have read so called Christian sites quote so called experts state that gay sex results in spread of sexually transmitted diseases more so than during normal heterosexual sex.I have also been given the vague idea that sex itself if practiced excessively will result in more genital diseases.Now since the so called Third world countries are deeply in debt,they perhaps do not have the resources to manage those sexually transmitted diseases.Perhaps that is the reason why they ban gay sex.
