The Witch Hunt For Gays In Western Ghana Has Officially Begun

EDITOR’S NOTE: The image we originally ran with this story offended some readers. The author has posted his apology and explanation in the comments below.

Great. Ghana’s Western Region Minister Paul Evans Aidoo has ordered the Bureau of National Investigations and all security agencies to start arresting any and all homos in the region. He’s also asked for landlords and neighbors to help in the homo hunt. Aidoo says, “All efforts are being made to get rid of these people in the society.” Yipes!

Mr. Bernard Mornah, General Secretary of the People’s National Convention said hunting for homosexuals isn’t the ideal—namely because police will have to break down doors and invade bedrooms; but y’know… whatever works.

The trouble with identifying homos though is that they look JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!. So we wonder how one measures homosexual activity: number nudie mags? Homoerotic web activity (like visiting Disney’s Pixie Hollow)? PDA sightings? The inches of distance between the two men living in the same house? Anal diameter? No really, how the hell do you tell a homo is a homo short of catching him with a dick in his mouth? Do the Ghana police just have really excellent gaydar?

Anyway, anyone suspected of being gay (which will undoubtedly include straight people) will be tossed into court and then into the overcrowded prisons where they will suffer a lack of food, water, clothing, medicals and detergents day after day for years. It’s kinda like a state-sponsored sleepaway camp…

… in Hell.
