The Drag Queen situation

The homosexual situation in Jamaica is definitely more and more widespread and definitely alarming (if you are as intensely homophobic as alot of Jamaicans are). Recently there was a reported drag queen situation in May Pen where a man was using the services of what he thought was a female prostitute, only to find out luckily before he went to far that the "woman" was actually a man. He was quite angered and a fight ensued but luckily the police was closeby and able to prevent any loss of life. This situation has proven to be quite hilarious to many jamaicans while some have found it alarming and angering.

The JFLAG group (a local gay rights group) has argued that the treatment of the "lady" by the police was inhuman and should've been better. However this argument has been shot down quite quickly as there have been no complaints by the "lady". But this says to me that JFLAG is getting desperate in its fight for gay rights in Jamaica and to me has proven disrespectful to the Jamaican police force and they are who should in fact be shunned. This however points to another argument where the gay rights groups are being more discriminatory than the people who are discriminating against them.... but thats a whole other kettle of fish.

The people who are also angered by this are the ones who are angry at the growing number of and the growing outwardness of gays in Jamaica. People say that it has gotten to the situation where gays are now able to even solicit sex in public dressing up as women... Before I continue btw, I just needed to add in this note that jamaicans really only have a problem with male homosexuals as lesbians are quite prevalent and are not facing as much fire as the males are... This situation has gotten many people scared and are making people increasingly uncomfortable in public.

Personally my say is this... I dont believe that homosexuality is right, sorry, I just dont see how 2 men or 2 women being together is natural or makes any sense (im not even going to get into the biblical argument). However, I dont have a problem with people being gay IN PRIVATE! If two men want to enjoy each other's company, go forth but do it privately. I dont believe that children should be influenced by a situation where 2 men are publicly showing affection. I also believe that this should also be applied to this drag queen situation as well. The "lady" should have told the man from the beginning that he/she wasn't in fact a lady and this would've solved all problems. If a man wants to have sex with another man though, keep it in your yard. I dont mind the nighttime activities because children really shouldn't be out at night in the first place. So to me all this talking and activity - much ado about nothing.
