I’ve been rather flabbergasted at how open-ended the wording in Uganda’s proposed Anti-Homosexuality Law is, and how easily it can be abused should it become law. You can find the text of the bill here. Rob Tisinai demonstrates just how open to rampant abuse this abysmally-constructed bill really is.

It is fair to ask if this is what the bill’s authors and supporters really intend.

I bet 90% of the ‘homosexuals’ the government jails after passing this are going to be people opposed to that government. It’s not like they actually have to prove their accusations, just say he’s gay and go get them. If anyone objects then they must be gay to.

In other words, it will be used in much the same way that anti-sodomy laws have been used in Malaysia, Indonesia, etc.
