Consensual buggery will not be legalized in Dominica

Harris said the recommendation was turned down
Harris said the recommendation was turned down

A recommendation to legalize consensual buggery among adults in Dominica, which was submitted to a committee recently set up to review the country’s Sexual Offenses Act was denied, Legal Consultant, Ray Harris has revealed.

The government is working on tightening the Sexual Offenses Act of 1998 and the committee, under the chairmanship of Harris, was set up in October 2015 to make necessary observations and recommendations. A draft will soon be sent to parliament for approval.

“Although there were certain submissions, vis-à-vis, I almost said it, freeing up but that’s not the way to look at it. It’s a matter of legalizing consensual buggery among adults,” he said. “One of the stakeholders did submit that but I am being honest, the committee did not recommend that.”

He continued, “In fact there were a few cases, when we talked to Justice (Errol) Thomas and others and the DPP that showed you that even when sometimes you have a minor who would be 17 abusing another one who would be 10 or 11, the kind of brutality and heinous buggery that went on, in some of the cases we realized that the penalty was just too low.”

Buggery, or anal intercourse, is illegal in Dominica under the Sexual Offenses Act however, there have been calls from some quarters to take a second look at the matter.

Local group, Minority Rights Dominica (MiriDom), has been calling on the government to take another look at the law with a view to having it repealed.

According to the group, the Act “discriminates against people because of their sexual preferences,” noting that everybody should be treated equally.

In 2011, then Health Minister, Julius Timothy raised concerns about what he said was a growing trend of buggery in Dominica. He said a study to determine the prevalence of men who have sex with men was undertaken and the matter was “becoming a very serious situation.”

Back in 2013, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said that buggery laws on the books in Dominica will not be repealed pointing out that he has not heard any ‘compelling’ argument to support such move.

    “Homosexuals could be put down quite plausibly as the most detestable group ever heard of. They cry out for privacy in the bedroom and then publicly announce their sexuality, demand tolerance but deny others the very same virtue, they claim to be nothing more than innocent victims but victimize anyone with a dissenting opinion, claim that they only want equal treatment, but in reality they constantly crave negative attention and demand a celebration of their lifestyle, they wallow in vanity and pride, insist that “tolerance” and “acceptance” are synonymous words, and their claims that the “homosexual” family is on par with the “heterosexual” family is mainly a form of display. I find them petulant, compulsive, militant, and obsessed with their own sexuality; they make their sexuality their personality!!!!” by sophia

    It truly boggles my mind how people who claim to be Christian are often the most vile beings on the planet.

    They claim to stand on moral ground yet all they do is perpetuate lies and violence against those who are simply trying to live their lives and manifest love in all ways.

    For the record, the belief that Male and Female are finite in the human species is erroneous. Intersex people exist. They are the spectrum of variations of sex characteristics that NATURALLY occur within the Human Species. Here is a link to BEGIN this conversation. http://www.thedebrief.co.uk/sex/sex-stories/things-you-only-know-if-you-are-born-intersex-20160362427

    It is my hope that we all get a better understanding of who we are a species so we can all begin to love and support one another while we share this planet and experience.

    In closing, if you religion drives your psyche to a place where you want to harm and/or advocate harming another being, then you need to find another religion.

    March 10, 2016

    The reality is that Dominica cannot refuse to legalise buggery. That is because this refusal flies in the face of the ‘human rights’ of homosexuals.

    Gay men need to have the relief of buggery as it is part and parcel of being a gay person. To deny them this relief is to deny them their human right and to discriminate against them as a minority group.

    Dominica is a signatory to the various UN’s Human Conventions on Human Rights from it is clear that buggery cannot be legally denied to homosexuals.

    Homosexuals denied buggery in Dominica, therefore, will be at liberty to take the state to court and most likely, win!

      UN Convention on Rights of Persons with a Disability – ratified by Dominica in 2007….”The purpose of the present Convention is to promote, protect and ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by all persons with disabilities, and to promote respect for their inherent dignity.

      Persons with disabilities include those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others.

      Homosexuals are persons with a disability and the treaty which is part of our constitution as as such, a superior law, prohibits discrimination against them. Buggery is part of the normal practice of homosexual men and as such its practice is protected by law in Dominica.

      nonesence, gay should not have any right other than human right. they cannot be denied the right to be a citizen. but to be a homosexual it can be denied by a state. even if the world says is wright but wrong is wrong no matter what. no sexual right should be granted to them. pennis never meant for anus but for a vagina. a man and a man cannot be complete. is a man and a woman thats complete each other. two man or two woman cannot reproduce and its not normal to have a relationship of the same sex.. anything other than that is lust and evil. to reach to the point to ask for homosexual right is to be deep in buggery. those who are fighting for gay right are fighting against God and his order. God word said a man should leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife not his pander. the bible tell us about homosexuality in the romans 1. how people will reject God and will turn to those things. so please going into homosexuality will lead to Gods judgment and punishment.

    Dominicans too hypocrite. All of all you running for visa and green card to go and live in Sodom and gommorah. Is up there all you children will see all the comess. Dominica is a God fearing nation why all you doh stay here. When the gay people passing all kinds of things all you have to say but when I New York they in heels and panty all you mouth shut. Mind all you toofay. Leave ppl live their Iife the way they want God will judge them. Is not today it have macoumeh I Dominica its nothing new. Start cleaning all you closet first maybe some might even be there hiding. Don’t throw stones before it bounce and break some of all you glass windows.

  6. Lovely Dominica appears to be doing all in its power to force itself into the ranks of the other nations of the world which are considered popular and progressive. The big problem is that this once God-fearing island nation, seems willing now to enter into world recognition through the back door of sinful notoriety. The great irony here is this; that even in the abject refusal to acknowledge the wisdom of almighty God on the subject of Human Sexuality, we find ourselves fulfilling the predictions of God’s holy word. ” In the last days, perilous times shall come, for men shall be lovers of their own selves , covetous,disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.”‘ That kind of spiritual environment becomes the breeding ground for the cultivation of a disobedient nation, on its way to social decay.

    What we have learned from this is that there are very influential malicious individuals in high places, to even have Sodomy recommended to actual drafters of Dominica’s laws (at that level). Some of them also smoke marijuana but will not submit it for legalization, but see buggary known to have DEADLY consequences, more compelling to them that they rather add insult to Domonica’s injury when we are facing sexual assult of our young ones. However, no use of their ‘influence’ to make even a case for Marijuana, known to have numerous health Benefits.

    This is so heartless to introduce this at this juncture, they will stop at nothing, at risk of spreading AIDS, hepatitis to the already burdened health services.

    Folks, we are in deep trouble! For our young ones as young as sixteen (considered adults) to be submitted to be buggared legally at that level of ‘new leglislation’ into our Constitution. We are indeed in DEEP trouble.
    This is Sickening.

    It’s time to protect our children from savages. I don’t care what consenting adults do behind closed doors, therefore this new law will never be enforced. Whether we accept it or not, there will always be members of society who choose a different path. So long as innocent minors are not forced to participate in acts that defile them, consenting adults can do as they please in their own time.

    Another step back for Dominica. Why is the government in the bedrooms of consenting adults? This is not about paedophilia or rape; this is about consensual sexual activity. And buggery is obviously not limited to gay men, so this regressive law also persecutes straight couples who do it, as well. I know it will likely not be enforced, but it is a gesture in the wrong direction. And, honestly, since most of the commenters will think this is about LGBT people, here is the thing: LGBT people exist in Dominica and everywhere across the world, and we have always been a part of it. What we do with consenting adults is none of your business. And we will never stop fighting for the simple right to not be discriminated against, just as no one should discriminate against straight or cisgender persons for who they are.

    This God thing is a joke. God destroys two cities of homos, spares Lot, his wife and 2 daughters, wife turns to salt, Genesis 19:30-38 Lot gets drunk have sex with both daughters, they have babies for daddy…you see what kind of god you guys worship? God despises homos but promotes and encourages another evil – Hypocrite

    Read also Genesis Genesis 9…with only Noah, his wife, their sons and their wives…no one else survived, right? Then tell me the rest of the story of how the earth got re-populated…God is a hypocrite – he condones one bad thing, but not the other. I did not say that, the holy bible did so don’t point fingers and read it for your self.

    This is a big topic, taboo even. Notice how many understand buggery and homosexuality to be one and the same, but it really is not the same thing. And the discussion here is about buggery. This means the act is not exclusive to man and man only.
    Would it make sense to prosecute a man for anal penetration with his consenting female partner? That too is buggery. Consenting adults should be left to decide on their sexual activities. Stop waste money and time deciding how adults should copulate?
    I am sternly against homosexuality for being a very very selfish agreement, counterproductive to the benefit of society as a whole.
    The only way buggery should be a crime is when it’s not consented between two adults and when it involves an adult and a minor. None consenting buggery is Rape and that only should be the crime.
    Do we also criminalize Oral stimulation? What does the Bible say on the topic Pastor? If we only follow the Bible many should stop rare and eat pigs.

    The decision to turn down the proposal just shows that Dominican society is still very immature and from a practical standpoint is the utterly nonsense. Firstly, how are you going to enforce it and if you enforce it, what exactly will you protect. If adults agreed to have anal or oral sex, will Mr Harris and Mr Thomas do something about it? Is it government business at all to control such things?
    You all know that there are a lot of REAL unresolved problems which affects society and you spend scarce tax payers money for debating provisions which are damaging for human rights and have ZERO effect from public management perspective. I believe that the lawmakers need to protect the most vulnerable groups in the society which are children and minorities. MiriDom represents the minority and their voices need to be heard. Its called ‘Democracy’ and a part of something called ‘Civilized Society’

    Well I suspect more than half of the population will be sent up to the big house if this is fully enforced since the trend these days is that many women are asking for it from behind and many fellas have to oblige. Imagine a guy told me the other day that his girl was begging for it in the ‘backdoor’ and when he refused she threatened to have someone else do the job if he couldn’t or refused to. In a situation like this would a brother have much of a choice?

    Heads of State have a responsibility to give us laws that forbid the behavior God says is an abomination.

    Presidents and Prime Ministers who decriminalize buggery and legalize same sex “marriage” are fools because they are approving something God says is an abomination. By telling the people (or implying) that it is alright to ignore and disobey God and live contrary to His commandments they are taking their nations out from under God’s protection. In the day of trouble they may call upon Him and find they are not heard.

    At the end of the day we will (each one of us) be judged by what God has said and not by what the government of any country decided at any given time. That which God has forbidden is sin whether it is consensual or not and it makes no…

I personally do not judge nor condone such acts but it should be done discreetly. In the matter of consenual buggery/lesbian acts in Dominica, in no way shape or form should this be legalized. There is enough as it is in dominica. We dont need the whole tour where men and men or women and women getting married or publicly having same sex relationship. This is madness.

    The island population is already low, to encourage the spread of homosexuality in men and women does not help that situation. Homosexuality affects both men and women in that there are lesbians and gay men. in either case making this a legal act is a step closer to a pitfall; similar to when citizens were allowed to own guns and hanging was abolished. there are all kinds of sexual offenses besides homosexuality there are serial rapists that may in fact prey on the weak. Its important to enforce these laws instead of feeding sweets to an already decaying tooth… soon enough all the teeth will spoil.

      What an idiotic comment. Homosexuality is genetic and epigenetic–it cannot be ‘encouraged’ to be ‘spread.’ It is not a disease you catch. People are born straight, gay, or bisexual, or asexual. It just happens. The majority will always be straight. You are fear-mongering based on no factual information whatsoever.

      • October 25, 2016

        This is not correct :!:

        (1) There are former homosexuals who have been delivered: some by the power of Christ, and some by proper psycho therapy. I am talking about men who married a woman and now have biological children of their own.

        (2) There are former straight men and women who were married to someone of the opposite gender and had biological children of their own. They were enticed into sodomy. I know such men who left their families to enter a homosexual relationship.

        These cases obviously prove they were not born homosexuals. They also show that change is possible.

        There are homosexuals who were molested by older boys or men and introduced to homosexual activity. From then on they developed homosexual desires and went that way. Stats show a high percentage of homosexual men were molested as children or while in their teens.

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

    I think Ray Harris is confusing anal rape of a minor with anal sex between consensual adults. Or is it the way the story is written?

    I do not understand why people want to penalize consesnting adults (even married heterosexual couples) for engaging in anal sex. What is the real reason? Some of the same people who want to throw adults in prison for anal sex are themselves involved in it. What’s the rationale for turning people into criminals for what is a private matter? Are some of us so prudish? I see no compelling reason to criminalize anal sex between two consenting adults of sane minds.

      I agree. He doesn’t seem to know the difference. But since anal intercourse is illegal I hope they take into consideration the men who have anal sex with women and not just homosexuals.

    • Buggery
      March 10, 2016

      is a pompous individual and is likely to get Dominica into a lot of trouble. The reality is that buggery cannot be denied to consenting homosexuals. To deny this to them would be illegal as Dominica has already signed up to the various UN HR treaties which guarantee such rights to buggering homosexuals.

    And herein lies my problem with laws in places like Dominica. We have laws on the books that we all know will not be enforced. So why bother to have those laws? And this does not the only one. there are many laws that are being broken and ignored on a regular basis and nothing is done to bring the perpetrators to trial.

    If the government feels so strongly about keeping that law on the books, I dare them to go after all these man they know are engaged in those acts. We all know who they are and there are many more who do it that we might be surprised to know are involved in that.

    I dare the government to prosecute them.

    It is sad, and sickening to read a comment such as that of someone who claims to have a name like dalit! Such people are very sick, and indeed should seek psychiatric treatment. If what he claim is taking place in the country is true, it would appear that our people have all reduced themselves below the level of wild animals.

    Any human, man or woman who subjects themselves to the abuse of anal brutality are lower than an animal; and the reason I say that is because in all my years of living on this earth, I’ve never seen nor encounter animals, of any kind indulging in homosexuality.

    There is no same sex intercourse in the animal Kingdom, every animal mingles with its kind, a male goat and a female sheep do not involve in mating, even in the case where human caused a male horse to cross with a female donkey to produce a mule it is still male and female breathing, and that is accomplished by utilizing the natural male and female organs of the animals!

    I am happy that there…

      I am happy that there are still some people in the country who’s dignity, and morality are still firm, and perhaps knows that there is a God who prohibits such filth!

      Homosexuality is a curse, humans brought on themselves, it is satanic, it is wrong, no matter who is involved, and their status in life. We know that people of all professions, and in high place are involved, but that should not be condoned in society. If people wish to indulge in their private life that is a matter for them; and between themselves and the devil they serve; however, I do not believe in legalizing such filth in our country!

      Over 1,500 species of animals are confirmed to exhibit homosexual behaviour, according to scientists who actually study animals. But you seem to believe that because you’ve never seen it, it can’t exist. The arrogance of such a viewpoint is astonishing. Just Google it, jeez.

      Mr. Telemaque,

      Please read this before engaging into discussion you don’t really know or understand: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexual_behavior_in_animals
      According to Bruce Bagemihl, “the animal kingdom [does] it with much greater sexual diversity – including homosexual, bisexual and nonreproductive sex – than the scientific community and society at large have previously been willing to accept.”

      Homosexuality was ALWAYS a part of human society. Starting from early civilazations until contemporary society. It doesn’t really matter if you like it or not.
      Homosexuality is not something people choose… its something people were born with. However these people have the same rights as heterosexual people and nobody can judge them just for being themselves.
      Surely you are not in position to compare people with animals based on their sexual preferences, because its pure racism and evil.

      • March 10, 2016

        People are “born with” a sinful, fallen, broken nature inherited from Adam and Eve.

        In this nature are many sinful tendencies and inclinations towards various evils. Each of us are affected differently by the sinful nature within us but because we are “born this way” we all sin.

        You cannot excuse your sinful behavior by saying you were “born this way”. You have a choice.
        The tendency to commit a specific sin may be within you but you can either yield or resist that temptation.

        Christ shed His blood and died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins.

        “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:6-8)

        “…the blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)

      • March 10, 2016

        Continuation …

        We must believe in Christ and receive Him as our personal Savior to be saved, and become a child of God.

        The Bible says:

        “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.” (Acts 16:31)

        “…as many as receive him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”

        God not only saves those who believe and receive Christ as their Savior. He breaks the power of cancelled sin, and sets the prisoner free. He delivers them from the bondage of bad habits, and gives them a new life.

        It is written:

        “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, …” (John 10:9)

        “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things have passed away; behold all things have become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, …” (2 Corinthians 5:17,18)

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

    However, if an adult woman gives consent to an adult male during intercourse to be penetrated in her anal cavity then I have no issues with that because they are grown folks of opposite sex. This is called the “Antiguan Maneuver” and cannot be made illegal as long as the woman is in agreement. MiREDOM need to pause that cassette immediately. :mrgreen:

      So what?

      Even if what you say is true …

      Even if it happens this way ..

      It will not change the laws of God!

      Heads of State have a responsibility to give us laws that forbid the behavior God says is an abomination.

      Presidents and Prime Ministers who decriminalize buggery and legalize same sex “marriage” are fools because they are approving something God says is an abomination. By telling the people (or implying) that it is alright to ignore and disobey God and live contrary to His commandments they are taking their nations out from under God’s protection. In the day of trouble they may call upon Him and find they are not heard.

      At the end of the day we will (each one of us) be judged by what God has said and not by what the government of any country decided at any given time. That which God has forbidden is sin whether it is consensual or not and it makes no difference if it has been approved by the government of any nation.

        What does it mean to be under god’s protection? Some of the most religious and conservative countries in the world are the one constantly hit by natural disasters and are ridden with crime and violence. Some of the countries in the world with the highest standard of living are non-religious. Meanwhile there are countries who claim the same thing you claim only they claim it in the name of another god, not yours. How well of are they? They are being destroyed by countries who uphold a god different than theirs, while they squander away their resources trying to destroy those countries because they won’t submit to their god. What’s the point of all this nonsense really?
