Currently the bill hasn't been approved by Ghana's President Akufo-Addo, however according to several Ghanaians on social media, I'm a homosexual! Yes, over 20 people said that I'm "part of them!" I asked this one question, "When are women and girls going to matter in Ghana?"

I was told by men and women that I was talking as if I am one of them, I can only assume they mean part of the LGTBQI group. Another man asked why people would be beating, killing and hurting homosexuals, he too was accused of being gay.

This is all it takes, these accusations are all it takes now? I am a woman who used to date women, I stopped many years ago. I've never had the feeling or desire to be with a woman in years. I don't know what happened, I just stopped. Do I think women are beautiful, special and wonderful? Yes, I do, I think women are the strongest, bravest humans on earth.

I don't however see them in a sexual manner, I have eyes and I can see when women are beautiful and I see nothing wrong with telling another woman that her hair is nice, or outfit or her smile.

In Ghana this might make me a target. Just a few short years ago, I shared my past with my ex, Ernest "Fanta" Addo. I had no idea that it would end up being the biggest mistake of my life. Not only was dating him and planning to marry the mentally, verbally and sometimes physically abusive drinker, sharing my secret was too.

Ernest Addo, who was at the time working for the Royal Beulah Hotel in Ghana's East Legon section where I meant him. He pretended to be so shy, quite and religious, not knowing he rarely stepped into a church had several woman and children.

If I questioned him he would insult me verbally, he often made fun of my physical appearance. I at the time, was at one of the lowest points in my life. I shouldn't have returned to Ghana. I was already tired of being insulted daily.

Ghanaians taught you to death just walking down the road, screams from TroTro's would come, "obolo" "Fat mommy" Big Biggie" or my least favorite "Yevu" which means dirty, tricky, dog or in other words a white person. It was everyday, people would point, look nonstop, I would even catch some people aiming their phones at me.

One man stood outside my Bolt (shared car ride) making pig noises and puffing his cheeks out at me. I was beyond exhausted, by this time. Ghana was abusive, it started to become like the only safe times to go out was at night so I could hide myself in dark places.

One day my ex, Ernest who was angry with me for some nonsense reason, he said he was going to report me to the government. He said he would tell them I came to promote "gayism!" I had no idea what the Hell gayism meant, I thought it was just what Africans called homosexuality.

When I found out that this disgusting term meant spreading and or forcing children and others into being gay. Who the HELL thinks that is possible? I had no idea people actually believed that someone could convince a man to suck a penis if he didn't want to.

I just ignored his threat, I didn't even let it upset me, it wasn't until later that I found out about the incidents. For lack of a better term, I don't know what to call them, beating gays, corrective rape of women that either parents or others accused of being lesbians.

Today the Ghana news just pushed around the news of the Anti-LGTBQI bill, it was all over the media outlets. Some Ghanaians applauded this, some just didn't comment, it has not become a time to not comment on these posts. Anyone that doesn't agree will be targets.

Love Turned Deadly: Nurse's Tragic Fate Unfolds in Akyem Brenase

March 1, 2024

In a chilling incident at Akyem Brenase Health Clinic, a nurse named Alberta faced a grim demise at the hands of her fiancé. The fatal attack, involving a club, was prompted by accusations of infidelity. Shockingly, this wasn't the first episode of violence, as reports emerged that the same suspect had poisoned Alberta the previous year, a sinister foreshadowing of the tragic event.

Family sources disclosed that Alberta, feeling unwell, had sought her boyfriend's assistance in her time of need. Little did she know, he harbored malicious intentions. The suspect's sinister plot unfolded when Alberta invited him to care for her, resulting in a horrifying incident where she was struck with a club. The assailant, whose identity is yet to be revealed, callously remained by her lifeless body for almost 24 hours, adding another layer of darkness to this distressing story.

As the police delve into the investigation, the unsettling narrative of love turned deadly continues to unravel, casting a somber shadow over the community of Breman in the Ofoase Ayirebi constituency.

Women are being killed on suspensions of being unfaithful, this is what the world is coming to? Men can just think a woman is cheating and murder her, so cheating is now punishable by death, while more than enough men in Ghana think that polygamy is a 'human right', this can't be the world we all live in.

Sadly, I lost a Tweet where a man said, I can post that I'm a thief however the Ghana police can't arrest me unless they have proof. However if he Tweeted he was gay, they could arrest him and jail him just for that. 

Sadly many in Ghana have no idea what human rights means, so according to the comments most think it means that gay marriages have to be legalized in Ghana. It's sad how many don't understand that it takes away basic freedom of speech and freedom from living in peace no matter what they do. Gay people can't even look a certain way in Ghana. 

I hope this means all the men in Ghana who sport those long nasty most times dirty nails have to cut them since it's not of Ghana Family Values!

This is not to mention that several people in Ghana were lynched over the last 30-days as well. Two men escaped being lynched because the police arrived to stop the crowd of mostly school children.
