Samoan Activist Still Simmering Over Sporty Gay Sex Ban

Fa’afafine activist Roger To’otooali thinks its never too late to fight for what’s right. Or, at least gripe for what right. The cross-dressing activist – who fights for fa’afafine are a historic class of men who dress as women – recently took aim at the already retracted gay sex ban for the South Pacific Games.

The Samoa National Olympic Committee had irresponsibly – and somewhat laughably – issued an edict barring gay players from playing it up in bedroom. A memo read, “Athletes are advised that they should not embarrass themselves, their families and the country.”

Any “embarrassing” acts, the prohibitory note said, were “against the law of God.” The SNOC came under immediate fire, but To’otooalii turned up the heat when he lashed the edict as “pure discrimination”.

To’otooalii told The New Zealand Herald:

By banning such activities the SPG officials suggest that only gay and lesbians have sexual desires, but what about the rest?. If they want to ban sex than they should ban all sexual activity regardless of the athlete’s sexual orientation. The decision reflects poorly on Samoa, we are one of the leading countries in the Pacific, we must honour that by setting a good example.

To’otooalii also insists that gays are mature enough to keep their antics behind closed doors.

Though he considers the edict intolerable, To’otooalii also says he understands the “[SNOC] probably have their own reasons for the decision as they have experience in such events before.” Like what? Rampant butt fucking on the field?
