Buggery cases in Dominica alarm Health Minister

Timothy

Health Minister Julius Timothy has raised concerns about what he said seems to be a growing trend of buggery in Dominica.

Timothy told the Dominica Labour Party’s Delegates convention in Grand Fond on Sunday that an assessment was undertaken to determine the prevalence of men who have sex with men in Dominica and the results are alarming.

“An assessment of performance of the Ministry of Health on the eleven essential public health functions to protect and improve the health of the people was undertaken. The assessment was critical in helping define health policies which take into consideration issues of equity, efficiency and responsiveness to citizens’ expectations,” he said.

He said a study to determine the prevalence of men who have sex with men was also undertaken.

“This is becoming a very serious situation in Dominica. Men who have sex with men,” he added.

    it’s a shame who’s to blame a poor man’s live start’s and end in pain . what a sad way to go ; not to know is bad but not to wish to know is even worst; i was born a man from a woman and a woman was made for a man ; as the saying goes , a man convince of his own will is of that same opinon still. i call this reverlation time we have all fall short of the glory. i guess some apples fell shorter

    I have read most of the comments here, and frankly, some are very distastfull; I wonder if the topic of INCEST was mentioned here, how many of you would respond…

    What about fathers who have sex with there littel girls or teenage daughters and get them pregnant, what about fathers who sexual molest there girl babies, all this is happeing right here in Dominica. what about mothers who PIMP their girls, who collect money from men who are old enough to be the childrens fathers for sexual favours.

    What about the women who havce anal sex with men and teenage girls who take it from behind because they want there VIRGINITY INTACT. The Minister of Health should not have used the Delegates Conference to Disclose what he Disclosed, It was not the proper forum and definately not the right place for such a delicate and sensitive matter. I found it was HOMOPHOBIC on his part, instead he should be speaking about how the ministry is going to tackle variuos health issues and the services affered at the Hospital; Proper health care and health care facilities, up to date health care services as we once had years ago where we were they envy of the Caribbean region in health care.

    What about the thousands of ADULTERERS here in Dominica, what do you say when husbands walk in on there wives with there best friend WIFE, and the WIVES who walk in on there husbands with there best friend. what about those in the RELIGIOUS community who have sex with men and boys and the PREACHER who have sex with married women in the congregation and young girls. What about men who rape young girls and get away with it, a friend of mine told me that her NEPHEW raped her daughter and he got away with it. where were all of you when all these things happens. For those of you who want to ERDICATE US, EXILE US AND SEND US TO HELL OR WHERE-EVER YOU THINK WE SHOULD GO where will Dominica be if we were to be EXTINCT as some of you nicely put it. THE DANGER LIES WITH THE SO- CALLED BISEXUAL MEN, THE SO-CALLED DOWN LOW MEN WHO HAVE WIVES AND GIRLFRIENDS; that is where the danger lies and that is where the health risks start and continue.

    If you were to ERADICATE US OR MAKE US EXTINCT, MANY WIVES AND GIRLFRIENDS WOULD BE WITHOUT THERE HUSBANDS AND BOYFRIENDS, THAT IS A FACT!

    Our Society and Culture is on of a diverse nature with ever changing trends, no one is forcing there sexuality or lifestyle on anyone, theres is being forced on us, they are the ones who seek us and beg, plead, and harras us for a ROMP IN THE HAY. some of you have no idea how many men in Dominica have sex with men and they do not consider themselves homosexual. We roll out the red carpet for quotes from the bible and the like, just remember GOD MADE US ALL IN HIS OWN LIKENESS AND IMAGE, WE ARE HIS CHILDREN JUST AS YOU ARE HIS AND IF ANY OF YOU HERE WITH ALL YOUR COMMENTS ARE WITHOUT SIN, THEN CAST THE FIRST STONE! You would be suprised to know who in Dominica have sex with men and if you were to be told who, Dominica would be the HOTTEST TOPIC THROUGHOUT THE CARIBBEAN REGION…

    I could go on with statistics and other informative and relatively educational information on this Topic, but what would any or some of you learn from it; we are too arrogant and ignorant to the fact when it comes to HOMOSEXUALS IN DOMINICA OR MEN HAVING SEX WITH MEN (MSM`S)

    Hayy heyyyyyy… Wooyyy… All I’ll say is… Macco and macco don’t bugger… So keep in mind that you might be talking about your father, brother, uncle or boyfriend… No matter how many woman they have, or how loud they shout “fire burn batti man”… They still indulge in homosexual behavior…. Timothy should talk to some of his friends and collegues and ask himself a question

    The homosexual orientation is not a sin, but homosexual acts are sinful, and just as dangerous as fornication. We should not discriminate against homosexuals, but encourage them to live chaste lives if we truly care for their health and well being.

    In response to the idiot who does not belong the medical profession but simply know how to use Google. As you can see, increased homosexually will NOT lead to an increase in any of these cases as they are not directly related in most cases.
    ano-genital – Relating to the anus and the genitals. That means vagina included

    1. ano-genital syphilis, scabies, hepatitis B&C – Not a gay disease since women get it significantly more than men
    2. ano-genital chlamydia, salmonella, HPV – Not a gay disease since women get it significantly more than men
    3. ano-genital herpes — Not a gay disease since women get it significantly more than men
    4. hemorrhoids (piles) ¬- Not a gay disease since women get it significantly more than men. Particularly when giving birth
    5. Bestiality – The quality or condition of being an animal or like an animal. You need an animal for that you fool!
    6. molestation of boys – Women and men do it
    7. incessant diarrhea from loss of elasticity in the anus – Women have that issue as anal sex is practice with both men and women., That is also something you see in sex workers who have anal sex. Seldom if ever men.
    8. bisexuality and HIV wives who are unaware – That is where you come in.
    9. damage and tear to anus due to sadism and fisting (insertion of hand into anus) It is their choice and rarely practiced in these parts. It is a fetish!
    10. Intestinal parasitic infections (Gay Bowel syndrome) – Helminths often find their way into a host through mosquito transmission, eating infected food, drinking contaminated water, and walking on infected soil. ( Not Anal sex)

    Let’s not get it twisted brothers and sisters. Sin is sin!!!! That includes homosexualty. So do not be self righteous or judgmental lest we miss the precious opportunity to work on our own sinful nature, whatever the sin maybe. Remember all sin separate us from God and lead to a destructive state of carnality, robbing us of the wonderful gift of in God’s love and will. Remember, homosexual, lesbian, and heterosexual sexual immoral behavior are all against God’s will and word. I would venture to say that every one of us has struggled with these fleshly iniquities in some form another.

    Do not waste precious judging and measuring the size of the splinter in our brother or sister’s eyes while missing the chance to pluck out the big log in your own. The bible says that we are all born into iniquity, each with a sinful tendency or nature. Our personal choices, experiences, and socialization help to bring out that sinful nature or tendency in us that ultimately chokes and stunts our spiritual growth in Christ. From a spiritual standpoint, our personal battle against sin is nothing to under-estimate, it is an all out war for our souls, for life and death. No struggle is easy and many of us get into the habit of choosing the easy way out, believing the enemy lies that there is nothing we can do about our sinful behavior and nature.

    I invite everyone commenting on this blog to read God’s word and see for yourself what HE has to say about overcoming sin. As for me, I am starting with the man in the mirror by asking God to to continue to work on me by removing every thing in me that is unpleasing to HIM by renewing my mind. I am still a work in progress but thank God, by HIS grace I’m not where I used to be in sin.

  9. Gay and Loving It
    February 16, 2011

    Oh boy its so good to be gay. Don’t you notice that gay people always have money? Always dress nice, clean and loving.

    • Muslim_Always
      February 16, 2011

      Do you think money and clothes are all there is to life? There is the spiritual path as well. In any spiritual way of life or religion homosexuality is clearly condemned. What do you say? Do you believe that homosexuality is right in the eyes of God? Or, do you believe in God?

      If someone is gay but recognises he is doing something wrong against God but he has a weakness then that’s different. God may forgive him. However, do you think if a homosexual knows that this sin is condemned by God yet he dies in that state, do you think God may forgive him? As a gay person may I ask, do you believe in judgement day? What happens after you die?

      To level the playing field, Dominica is a hypocritical society. Adultery, fornication, murders and even terrorism committed ‘in the name of Islam’ are terribly wrong. Anyone who claims to believe in God yet support these vices are on clear error.

      Please read my questions and comments carefully. I would like some answers please, thank you so much. I look forward for a fruitful dialogue.

      • Gay and Loving it
        February 16, 2011

        Lets just all live in peace bro. There are many different sins that we choose to forget. For some people having more that one wife is just fine for others it is outrageous. People have different beliefs and none of us is sure who is wrong or right. The way I see it is if your lifestyle is not hurting anybody else then you free to do what you want. The bible also say don’t eat pork but everybody tend to ignore this and say its in the old testament. Also in the bible adulterers were stoned to death in most places that does not happen today. I say to all this let everyone live as they believe is right without deceiving others. If you feel that your religion dictates that you eliminate infidels by what ever means necessary this is what you believe. If you believe you should have 6 wives and you can take care of them more power to you. If you want to be gay be gay and if this gives you aids in the process is your life. It could be Gods way of dealing with it if its wrong. If its a sin like fornication and adultury then gay people have tons of company and wont be vey lonley in hell.

    Helas my people. Reading these comments are sad indeed.

    Increased buggery is good or bad, Tim talking crap, or whatever is irrelevant.

    Increased buggery simply means more cases of

    1. ano-genital syphilis, scabies, hepatitis B&C
    2. ano-genital chlamydia, salmonella, HPV
    3. ano-genital herpes
    4. hemorrhoids (piles)
    5. bestiality
    6. molestation of boys
    7. incessant diarrhea from loss of elasticity in the anus
    8. bisexuality and HIV wives who are unaware
    9. damage and tear to anus due to sadism and fisting (insertion of hand into anus)
    10. Intestinal parasitic infections (Gay Bowel syndrome)

    Yes, they all happen to the anus as well. And local nurses and doctors have to deal with it. So it is a problem in the absence of special health facilities and adequate treatment to deal with the cases. Continue to curse the Minister, your tax dollars into the costs incurred in dealing with torn and dripping anuses.

    Either we face reality, stop being ignorant fools, or just deal with it and stop the hate over the simplest of statements made. This is so so sick the comments read here.

      PS, sexual intercourse is ‘private’. But when diseases emerge, are spread unto young girls and boys by rape or sexual contact, as well as unto innocent wives, and the health practitioners are the ones who are expected to solve the grave problems that stem from that ‘private’ activity, then it becomes a public issue.

      Some of you need to keep quiet and find out if your daughters and sons that are engaged in anal sex (of course you think they are innocent) have anal syphilis and some man or woman out there is paying for the treatment.

      What you don’t want to see in front of your door is right under your bed.

    Homosexuality is neither right nor wrong, it is just a fact of life in every society, and no amount of shaming, slurs or anti-homosexual lyrics is going to stop it.

    I don’t think it’s a choice in most cases. Notice how effeminate some men are, and vice versa. They truly don’t have a choice.

    Cunnilingus: act involving a mouth and a Vagina.

    I read some of the comments asking for all gay men to be eradicated or banished from the country. But don’t we realized if this were to occur, then lots of marriage beds would be left with just one, some pulpits would be empty, the police force would be short staffed, some girls would be left without boyfriends, mothers would loose their smartest and most industrious sons, some football teams would be left without players, communities would loose some of their macho men, some classrooms would be left without a teacher, patients would be left without doctors, buses would be left without a driver, some businesses would need new management, there would be need for a few bi-elections in some constituencies, some culture clubs and bands would all wreck. This would be just like the rapture. Do you see how the country would be affected? Let’s be careful about what we’re are asking for. It is still naive to think that gay men are just the few effeminate boys on the corner of the street selling coconut cake.

    I do not discriminate against anyone. I am not anti gay (as long as they dont interfere with under age children). Each to their own. Live and let live.

    Reading some of the comments made me laugh. I found myself wondering what some of the so called hetrosexual men who have anal sex with their wives/girlfreinds actually think that act is. Well to me that is buggery. So, is that OK because its male/female.

    What annoys me are the so called bisexuals. They are the confused ones. They are also the dangerous ones, as they are more likely to spread HIV/AIDS.

    Unlike some, I wont quote the Bible, as I believe that no living human being is with out sin.

  24. Focused elimination
    February 15, 2011

    Point 1: Dominica Should publicly denounce buggerism

    2: Make it a punishable crime with severe penalties

    3: Isolate buggerers so they can rot in their nastiness

    4: Do not allow openly Gay people to enter the country

    5: Secerely bisexual and closet buggerers should be publicized by athourities when the find them

    6: Gay people should be refused health care just let them die

    This Carnival we are organizing a crusade to erradicate sodmomism from our beloved Island. Let the fittest survive buggerism is an abnormality it must be eliminated.

    Soon I’ll write a serious paper on the issue of homosexuality, very informative article from different perspectives God’s willing.

    I believe we need to deal with the reality for what it is. If someone truthfully doesn’t support homosexuality, then ensure that this homosexual respects you, I’m sure he will if you set realistic boundaries, not mixed messages. Homosexuality is HERE TO STAY. This is the reality. One day your son, grandson or some family member may tell you he or she is gay. Only Allah can deal with this. All these guys who like to walk with their pants falling down or have a firm a**, the gays are watching and admiring closely :lol:

    Secondly, all jokes aside, even if we do not like someone’s sexual choice, we must be respectful. They are human beings. Tormenting their lives will not stop homosexuality. The homosexual has a defense mechanism, he feels, ‘damn Dominicans are ignorant.’ Don’t fall for that, speak to him or her in a dignified manner like you would do to any other. Be Just for Allah loves the just ones.

  26. Muslim_Always
    February 15, 2011

    2. Homosexuals were born this way? Let’s be honest. Why would Allah create man with homosexual inclinations then punish people for it? That makes no damn sense! It’s like, God made man with the desire to eat food, then says to them if you ever eat food I’m going to send you to heal for all eternity. Flawed reasoning isn’t? On the other hand, we see women who are born with a lot of male hormones thus they have a lot of beard, even more than some men, their chests are flat, in other words they have a lot of male features yet they have a vagina. If scientifically, they have high testerterones (sp), wouldn’t that give them serious urges towards women? Also, there are men who develop breasts like women, they have feminine voices and have a lot of oestrogens yet they have a penis, thus does this genetic coding incline them towards men? How about those who do not have these evident scientific situation? Why do they still incline towards homosexuality? There are many men who are bisexuals. The first case are those men who suppress their homosexual feelings, use women as a smoke screen yet go after men as well. The second case are bisexuals who have a large sexual appetite and have a ‘natural’ desire for both sexes. Should one argue that bisexuals are born this way? The bisexuals need to have their rights as well, let them be polygamous. :-D You claim to be democratic and free, then give the gays and bisexuals their freedom too :lol: Those who practice beastiality, it’s not their fault, they were born like that too :lol: . Everyone was born like this in your society, let’s murder, soon it will be shown that there is a little gene in the brain that shows he was born to kill, so let him free. :lol: . In conclusion, my view is people who have an excuse are those who are scientifically born with a penis but have a lot of oestrogens and vice versa. The others, I believe it’s a psycho-sexual disorder thus need counselling. If they want to continue their lifestyle in private confines, leave those people alone, you claim secularism so let them do their thing.

    Well, I’ve read almost all of the comments on DNO. I see that many persons are homosexual activists. Hmmm very interesting! People are very ‘tolerant’ and ‘accepting’ of their ‘alternative lifestyle.’ Here are my points.

    1. Dominica is a very hypocritical society. If you are going to quote bible, you need to condemn fornication as well. Let’s be reasonable. You have to choose whether you want a theocractic state or a secular one. If you choose a theocratic state like Iran and Saudi Arabia then one must execute all homosexuals because this is Allah’s laws which is Supreme and must be respected. However, if you all want secularism then you HAVE to allow the gays their rights. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. You all support fornication and adultery then you have to allow two consenting men to enjoy themselves. It’s your Dominican society, you have to accept the gays, leave them alone. You have to allow them to marry because you all living with woman unmarried in homes. You cannot quote bibles when it suits you, that’s hypocrisy! It’s best many Dominicans stop going to church. It doesn’t make sense, they going to church and they are even more evil than people who go to church. If you are a devout sincerely religious person then show it in your character and stop the hypocrisy. You claim Jesus was about LOVE AND PEACE, then show your homosexual friend some love man :lol:

    Let’s be clear about this. Buggery, or anal sex, is not unique to homosexual men. There are heterosexual couples who also engage in anal sex. However, the practice is more prevalent among homosexual men.

    No wonder there are so many new HIV/AIDS cases in Dominica….instead of spending energy on teaching safer sex practices and tolerance (from a health care perspective) so that people will be more open (no pun intended) to having safer sex, the ‘leader’ comes out with a statement laced in homophobia. Whether you agree with whether all gays are going to hell or not, they should not be ostracized from society because more diseases spread when guys go on the down low.

    This is nuts coming from the esteem Minister of Health. Despite my personal religious conviction on this matter, consenting adults have a right to privacy and a right to do whatever they desire within their own private space.

    Had the minister expressed his concern for the abuse and sexual exploitation of children, I would be one of his biggest supporters. However, to actually disclose in public that the Ministry of Health conducted a study on buggery is a grand waste of time, resources and the height of insensitivity and bigotry from Dominica’s government.

    Two men having sex, this is a private act between consenting adults…i am a God fearing person, but God forgive me, i leave that for you to judge.

    If buggery makes a man happy, if another woman, makes a woman happy….then let it be…conduct your intimacy in private though, and leave under-aged children alone!!!

    Our dear Minister, of Health, no less, shows himself to be a bigot. Should I be surprised at this at all? I would think that at least someone who is responsible for the health of the nation would use such distasteful language and target a portion of the population under his care as an unlawful bunch, a scourge on the nation.

    I will always speak of the ills of my dear society. It is saddening that we want to look at persons who have a sexual preference from the norm as criminals who need to be eradicated from our “blessed” land.

    I think this is the “Christian condition” affecting us here. Our Bibles say that homosexuality is an abomination. Hence that is all the evidence we need to destroy our homosexual brother/sister. We are too religious here. I will always lament this. Our religion is not helping advance us as a nation or as a people ready for the future.

    Look at the verses that criminalize homosexual relations in your Bibles. Now look at the other laws given in those same books. Do any of you break the sabbath? Or do you eat pig meat? There are about 667 laws in the Christian Bible. How many do we Christian Dominicans keep? By the same law you condemn, you too shall be condemned!

    Homosexuality is in fact common and normal in nature. Man is a part of nature. So why should you criminalize a victim-less act between two consenting adults who do something that comes naturally for them? Do your research before you speak, folks. What is the reason behind your hate for homosexuals?

Now lets find out why this act is so prevalent.I suppose you ar eof the mind set that is is a public health issue because of the economic siutation or its it lifestyle or a break down of a value system? What is the role of the church and schools?

    What are your recommendations Sir? Is government going to increase funding for morality lessons or are you going to start distributing condoms in schools, bus stops and elsewhere -even in churches? Talking about it is simply just that Mr.Minister and can it can be defined as mere gossip.

    HWe need to call it what it is… buggery! It is beastiality… an insult to humanity and the integrity of the sexes. No need to be politically correct. The truth about this nasty evil needs to be exposed, so that they can scurry back to their closets, like roaches running from light.
    If the doctors and other healthcare professionals were to come out and speak the truth, then the world wouldn’t be so quick to embrace this devastating lie.. The truth is at buggery spreads more sexual diseases, which in addition to getting the usualadd those diseases annd infections that are transmitted inn feces. They won’t tell you that. They also won’t tell you that constant violation of the anus, as happens in buggery or gay sex, will render the anal muscles confused. The same confusion which results from prolonged use of suppositories or laxatixes. The result… loss of annal control.
    And that born gay nonsense… if you’re born a conjoined twin, doesn’t mean you’re normal. The situation is seen as a deformity. Homosexuality can never be normal since it violates the basic laws of human nature. It is not genetic as it is a degenerative behavioral condition. Homosexuality negates the very humanistic theory of evolution (if you were to believe in that).

    The private acts of consenting adults – this is another defense of gay proponents. If you smoked weed under your bed, isn’t that private. If you are laundering money in private, between consenting adults, is that an infringement of your rights? Homosexuality is a human survival threat and a threat to the health and growth of the human race. This is why it is a threat to the humann race.
    And the biggest disgrace of all… it contradicts Gods plan for humanity. It is an abomination because it curses and insults the basic purpose of the sexes. It’s like the man is telling his wife, I don’t need you, because I have my boyfriend. What a disgrace and an insult.

    Lastly, the threat of the gay lifestyle is that it seeks to normalize and institutionalize this decadent immoral lifestyle. I dont see society doing this for murderers, drug addicts, porn stars or adulterers. The fact is, gays are the most intolerant of any groups out there, a hypocrisy that permeates their own calls for tolerance and acceptance.

      AP your logic is so warped and circular that I’m not even sure where I should begin tearing it apart. I won’t touch your first paragraph since I’m no medical doctor, I’ll just assume that you’re Dr. Anus Expert.
      On average, homosexuals make up 10% of any population, so the probability of the human race not evolving because of homosexuality is 10%, see, the act of homosexuality will never prevent the human race from continuing because the majority of us 90% will always be straight and reproduce, so that human survival threat is a figment of your warped logic. Being born gay is not a physiological issue mate, it’s an issue that revolves around the ‘psyche’ (an individual born into the body of a man but with the psyche of a woman, and, regardless of the body you have mate, your psyche defines who you are) though not all who partake in gay sex “was born that way.”

      Are you equating homosexuality to laundering money “in private” cause that’s just downright madness. What if the government instilled a law that made it illegal for two consenting adults to engage in oral sex, would you be OK with that, since the government says it should be able to tell consenting adults what to do.
      And as far as God’s plan mate, no amount of logic can reason with people bent on a religious agenda.

      • itis
        February 15, 2011

        Well said Mentally Disturbed! I’m a nurse in NY and yes there are greater risks with anal sex because of the increased risk of tearing. And yes you are right, alot of diseases are spread through feces, what you are way off on is the fact that gay sex is not the major contributor to diseases from feces around the world. What spreads diseases from feces the most is improper hand washing and improper waste disposal.

        If you’re referring to buggery spreading more diseases than regular sex (and I’m playing devil’s advocate here), the reason would be that gay men and women have to hide to have sex because of homophobes like yourself hence increasing the risk taking factor. In turn these DL men go out into the community and spread diseases they caught in their DL lifestyle.

        “…if you’re born a conjoined twin, doesn’t mean you’re normal”
        I’m not sure where you obtained your medical license from but there are conjoined twins who are normal. Conjoined obviously means they are joined somewhere. Chang and ‘Eng’ only had a small skin flap joining them, had that been cut they could’ve lived ‘normal’ lives. Your statement contradicts itself on so many levels, it’s giving me a headache trying to figure out what point your trying to bring across other than you hate gay men, gay sex, beastiality, yourself.

    And I always ask did anyone of you/us choose to be heterosexual?…..So why would we think that someone chooses to be gay?. I believe that the same way the God created different types or brands of plants eg. different types of mangoes and oranges. He created differences in us as human beings many unique differences and being gay is one of them. I have known of persons who resorted to attempted suicide because they could not face being themselves ….afterall they were gay and as far a our society is concerned is is wrong.
    They cannot force themselves to be straight the same way we cannot force ourselves to be gay.
    Why not love them…they are our brothers and sisters, mothers , fathers. uncles….
    Why treat them the way the black man was treated? …unaccepted in their own homes?

    Gay people are some of the most loving and humble and kind persons that I come across.. honestly.

What is shocking is that Dominicans, health professionals alike have ignored it and hope it will go away. The Survey is only confirming the reality and ignorance like this will continue to encourage the DL society. The situation is that some men are truly gay but due to societal pressures, they take on a girlfriend or a wife and try to play house. They know truly they want a man they try to deny and suppress it. Then they creep out at nights and engage in random sex with the first willing gay man. That is what you call black on black crimes when a society within their own ignorance, intolerance and backward thinking would suppress someone so much that they would endanger their lives and that of their love ones. Dominica is in a sad state of affairs! Soo many other issues that are more pressing to be addressed in Dominica. The health personnel themselves contribute to the issue as they do not respect privacy and know not what confidentiality is. If someone is gay or HIV in the hospital, they go back and spread it across the country.

      I have news for you young lady, tell your friend that such a statement has no place in today’s enlightened and tolerant world. Not only are such statements primitive and biased but also discriminatory, in the very same way she or you wouldn’t want to be singled out or treated differently just because you were of ‘Black’ origin or ‘speak with a particular Caribbean dialect.’

      Let’s be clear here, in very corner of the world however small, big, upper, middle, lower class, etc, etc, there will always be and has always been since from the beginning of time people from the same sex, (whether men or women) being attracted and having sex with each other, so that is really and ‘old/tired’ story and nothing new, even in St Vincent & the Grenadines contrary to what your friend may tell you.

      Just respect people for who they are as people and stop focusing on their sexuality as that is rather backward to just judge an individual only on this and nothing more. You and your friend will be missing out in life to get to know and develop some great friendships with a percentage of the population to your loss I might add.

      Educate yourself and open your hearts to someone who is different from the societal norm you have been socialised and raised to prefer.

    The Minister is right.What about HIV AIDS?Gay sex spreads sexual diseases and it needs to be stopped.When all the young men get into sex with other men then what or who is left for our young girls?thats why the girls have gay sex with girls.come on people homosexuality is plain immoral and wrong,just like adultery and all those other sexual sins.

    The minister cannot leave it to the religious bodies not when it can become a matter of public health issue.HIV/AIDS do spread and can spread like wild fire when men dont know they have it,If this continues then both men and women will get it and then maybe one of you all who is in agreement with homosexuality and the nonsense of what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedroom.this is an abomination.God is watching all you all who are doing it and in favor of it.

      Besides as you are so quick to spit out your biblical verses to condemn consenting adults who want to do what they want to do in the private lives, make sure you also select the verses that talke about ADULTERY, FORNICATION, ENVY, WICKEDNESS, WITCH CRAFT, CHILD ABUSE, SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S HUSBANDS AND WIFES…………..need I say more………….I rest my case as all sin is sin and we need to leave the higher power to do his judging that is not for you or I.

    Hon. Minister, i want you to be aware, that the European Union is pressuring governments around the world to make it a fundamental human right for persons to be free to choose their sexual patner, that campaign started in the nineties while you were in government then, as a matter of fact they are even going further to make it mandatory the praliament pass laws to effect that policy, so your pronuncement of the headline i hope is not an intention for this government to leglislate against those persons, otherwise DA will experience a problem in receiving aid from the EU. The US policy can serve as a guldelind for your administration, and why make that a taliking point at a party convention, you just had two nurses demomnstration on your hands, thought you would address that which was most current in your ministry.

The bible says that God…he is a God of wrath and a consuming fire “I hope you can understand that” in simple terms thats just what it means. so i don’t think that we want to taste his wrath just because of our sinful way.

      For the first time I agree with some of what you say but not all. Exploitation in the Caribbean of young men by grown gay men is a problem. I guess that is because not many people are gay so they try using kids. Anyway I live in Europe and I could care less who gay as long as it’s not my family member. Every two man that pass is two women more for me. In theory. I think some people were born that way though

BUT MY DEAR FOLKS. who I have a REAL PROBLEM with is those men who want to sit on the fence. I call them Weapons of Mass Destruction! They want to go back and forth between men and women, giving their wives and girlfriends all kinds on infectious diseases, including AIDS! I am telling you BISEXUALITY is a BEAST in itself. When husbands leaving their wives, and boyfriends on the downlow going back and forth, therein lies the monster of sicknes! I know we have homosexuals in Dominica, but I am almost certain MOST of the men in Dominica are NOT homosexuals they are bisexual. I mean make a choice and stick to it. Stop going back and forth spreading all kinds of nasty STIs. Bisexuality is our problem here in Dominica, not homsexuality!

      Finally, someone who really knows what’s REALLY happening in the land. Please consider that bisexuality is primarily a result of the continued criminalizing of homosexuality. Dem fellas using women as their smokescreen; then these same smokescreen women having sex with heterosexual men and more dangerous diseases spread even more. The answer is obvious but Dominican heterosexual men may be too homophobic to do what is necessary.

    This is indeed a wake up call for the Minister and the Dominican public in general. Homosexuality is alive and well in every society and we should learn to deal with it. This investigation done by the Ministry of Health is rather interesting as it shows that they are taking a step in the right direction in determining the needs of the society, and hopefully will assist in improving their services to include all sectors of the society.
    It would be a shame if they would have this information and not take the necessary actions.

    • gaynproud
      February 15, 2011

      For the Minister to come on and make this statements make him seem ignorant in many ways. This is particularly on the reality of homosexuality in Dominica, since this has been a reality for a while now. What is shocking is that Dominicans, health professionals alike have ignored it and hope it will go away. The Survey is only confirming the reality and ignorance like this will continue to encourage the DL society. The situation is that some men are truly gay but due to societal pressures, they take on a girlfriend or a wife and try to play house. They know truly they want a man they try to deny and suppress it. Then they creep out at nights and engage in random sex with the first willing gay man. That is what you call black on black crimes when a society within their own ignorance, intolerance and backward thinking would suppress someone so much that they would endanger their lives and that of their love ones. Dominica is in a sad state of affairs! Soo many other issues that are more pressing to be addressed in Dominica. The health personnel themselves contribute to the issue as they do not respect privacy and know not what confidentiality is. If someone is gay or HIV in the hospital, they go back and spread it across the country. All that contributing to the suppression and oppression of their own then we talk about racism in other countries. Look at the number of young men in the mental home and just survey their age and the reasons why they are there.

    @ Realist;

    You should have continued with: “which makes no sense!!!” Because AN INDIVIDUAL’S sexual orientation (referring to homo or heterosexuals) SHOULD NOT be a matter of illegal or legal!

    NO government or other entity should have the RIGHT to TELL anyone what they do in the PRIVACY of their bedrooms as illegal. What if laws were passed which said that oral sex was illegal? The use of those toys or non-body parts during sex illegal? These things SHOULD NOT be a matter of legality. They are and should remain a matter of safety and engaging in SAFER SEX—no matter what sex one may choose to engage in!

    We need to be realistic about SEX in our society. If you believe it’s immoral..ok, that’s your belief but the fact remains that it will happen. The same with ‘sex before marriage’ and ‘sex with someone who is not your spouse’. Legality should be enforced here as well if that’s the case.

  59. Real Issues
    February 15, 2011

    The fact that the minister of health is here talking about homosexuality is indicative of the low mentality within our beloved country. The minister should let the religious leaders deal with this issue. We are in an age of awareness. People are more knowledgeable of their fundamental civil liberties and rights. People are free to choose their sexual ways. So the minister should focus on more important matters of development.
    Let the moralists and religious leaders deal with this issue. We are facing issues that are more serious than this – let us tackle crime , unemployment, poor health services and lawlessness among authorities and those in government.

You worried about your two sons, what if you had two daughters it would not matter if men took advantage of them because they men. If any grown man try a young boy then it’s rape simple as that, if it’s two grown men then just let them be.
      One more thing, if either of your sons grow up and decide they wanna be with who they wanna be with, no amount of beating or de sweet women in DA can change that, so just live and let other ppl be.

      MSM does not refer to gay persons or homosexuals. There is no romantic context her. The act is purely sexual. Therefore you will find men who have sex with other men yet do not consider themselves gay. It is a public health issue because some of these men have wives and girlfriends, and some of them are also culturally inclined to not want to use condoms. So the Minister have all right to talk about it in that regard. MSM who have unprotected sex with each other and women are not only a health risk but an economic one as well. I have no issue with the minister speaking on the issue but I wish he would be more specific as to why he is so alarmed. Perhaps that will answer questions that some of us readers, are raising or will continue to raise in this forum

      Yes it is the issue of the state because it is those same consenting adults that spread desease to other people who may not be as consenting. Prety soon they’ll be allowing gay men to get married in dominica it that what any of us want to see. We have enough problems already we need to keep our country clean. IMO homosexulaity is a desease and people should be treated for it just as they treat mental cases. Homosexuals should be isolated and allow to whither and die instead of being an acceptable lifestyle. Men were not created for each other and no man who themself is not a Homo should be supporting this. And for all the men that are bisexuals they should be rouinded up and jailed for attempted murder for exposing the rest of of to their nastiness. And the women who support this they should not have the blessing of having children or husbands because this is not the way God or nature intended for us to live. For those who want to live openly gay go to america or maybe Jamaica ( LOL). Just my opinion

    “This is becoming a very serious situation in Dominica. Men who have sex with men,” Mr. minister in other parts of the world it is called same sex relationship or gays, and in case you are wondering it is legal.
    It is very hard to believe, but buggery is not a word being used anymore, it is politically incorrect.
