Jamaica’s Top Newspaper Admits: Yeah, We Hate the Gays

Well isn’t it nice to see Jamaica’s most prominent newspaper, the Jamaica Gleaner, finally acknowledge the obvious: “The fact is, Jamaica is deeply homophobic, or pretends to be. Homophobia attends the country’s sense of machismo; it frees us to go gay-bashing, and not just figuratively.” It’s like the Wall Street Journal admitting, “Yeah, America is deeply capitalistic. It lets us repeatedly rape the poor to fund the wealthy.” It’s not exactly a revelation, but putting it in print makes it truthier. (via MP)
