Why the hell is this incredible tragedy of what's happening in Uganda and Africa in general, in regards to the genocide against all LGBTQ's living on the continent, not more of a global outrage?
because people are too busy watching the superbowl and reality shows
bread and circuses, if you will
Are the Kardashians somehow involved? If not, who cares?
Third World Problem.
Thanks for the thread, OP. R6:STFU!
So sad. I remember the thread last year about the Gay Pride event in Uganda. These people are so fucking brave. I hope they survive.

And kill the gay people?
Well R3, I'd say there's pleny of 'reasons'-
We want to still have access to their resources
Fear of imposing western values and tampering with culture, although this is ridiculous as LGBTQ people are just as much people within that culture.
Involvement of white American fundies in promoting this sort of bigoted filth
Being black & gay making you the bottom of the pile for human rights.
Oh, and idiots like R6.
If they were afraid of cultural tampering, they wouldn't be Christian in the first place since that was imposed on them by the British.
Britain is behind the problems in the Middle East, and places like Uganda.
I'm on to it! I'll throw a benefit with Lady Gaga, and I'll invite my richest friends to attend.
It's hard work fighting for our rights but someone's got to do it.
Miss Cleo is FIERCE!
W&W for r1. This is sad and scary and hurts a lot. If this passes, they'll be dead. I admire their bravery for even being photographed.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
