|Paul Goldstein's photo of two male lions in a romantic |
embrace has freaked out Kenya's film censor.
Yes, I know the crazy train runs all over the world, doesn't it?
According to the New York Daily News, Ezekiel Mutua the head of Kenya's Film Classification Board has this theory:
"These animals need counseling, because probably they have been influenced by gays who have gone to the national parks and behaved badly."
Mutua said the lions must have seen two gay guys going at it, and decided to copy the feat.
I guess that puts new meaning into the term "lion tamer."
Mutua, who clearly does not know much about wildlife (there often are same gender encounters among animals) marveled:
"I mean where on earth have you heard something like this happening. The demonic spirits inflicting in humans seem to have now caught up with animals."
Or the demonic spirits have infected people so badly that they freak out over everything that suggests anything gay.
Mutua, who I mentioned heads the Film Classification Board, is also freaking out about gay themes in movies, no matter how benign.
His agency banned Disney's "Andi Mack" because the show added a gay character. "Any attempt to introduce gay programming in Kenya will be met with the full force of the law," Mutua said.
I guess Mutua never go to Kenya being a gay guy myself. Even if I promise not to teach lions how to have gay sex. Lions just aren't my type anyway.
