Imagine, if you will, that you're a tourist going on Savannah in some unnamed African country (Kenya, it's totally Kenya!). You've seen elephants and zebras, maybe even cavorted with a wildebeest or two, and now, you're ready for the main event. You're ready to see lions. But when you see them, they're doing something a little different...
According to some Kenyan officials, in a bizarre turn, gay tourists "turned" lions at the Masaai Mara National Reserve gay.When wildlife photographer Pete Goldstein took a picture of the animals *ahem* mid-coitus, the scandalous pics caused a social media uproar.
Ezekiel Mutua, the chief executive of the Kenya Film Classification Board, was exceedingly offended during an interview with Nairobi News posted online."These animals need counselling, because probably they have been influenced by gays who have gone to the national parks and behaved badly," Mutua said. "I don't know, they must have copied it somewhere or it is demonic. Because these animals do not watch movies."
"Demons also inhabit animals," Mutua continued during his very opinionated and bizarre interview.
If our lions begin this homosexual behaviour then that will surely be the end of the animal species. https://t.co/JL5wGR4NHW— Dr. Ezekiel Mutua, MBS (@Dr. Ezekiel Mutua, MBS)1509652459.0
While Mutua's desire to separate the animals may be a well-meaning if stupid attempt to control nature, it likely won't change anything.
