“I’m a Different Shade of Normal” – South African Albino Lawyer, Thando Hopa turns Model to Challenge Perception of Albinism | GGTU Research | Scoop.it
Brainy Malio's insight:

Thando recalled how she used to get hugged by strangers for good luck, her teachers thinking she was mentally challenged due to her poor eye-sight and how a woman once screamed at her on the street, referring to her as the devil’s child.

A Look at LGBT Literature in sub-Saharan Africa

A Look at LGBT Literature in sub-Saharan Africa | GGTU Research | Scoop.it
While an exhaustive examination of LGBT literature in Africa is virtually impossible, the few works presented here show that the genre has come a long way from depicting homosexuality as “un-African” and foreign, especially in South Africa where most of the literature is coming from. While white South African men writing about white gay male identity dominate, there are a growing number of black male authors, like K Sello Duiker, who look at additional issues of race and class. There are also female authors who tend to include more progressive depictions of women's sexuality. Overall, these works convey images of homosexuality which challenge stereotypical views. Despite this progress, there is still a long way to go. There isn't that much work coming out from the rest of sub-Saharan Africa and there needs to be more works from black lesbian women and transgender people.

Chimamanda Adichie: Why can’t he just be like everyone else?

Chimamanda Adichie: Why can’t he just be like everyone else? | GGTU Research | Scoop.it
By Chimamanda Adichie I will call him Sochukwuma. A thin, smiling boy who liked to play with us girls at the university primary school in Nsukka. We were young. We knew he was different, we said, ‘he’s not like the other boys.’ But his was a benign and unquestioned difference; it was simply what it…
Brainy Malio's insight:

COMMENT POSTED BY NIGERIANS:

"A crime is a crime when it is against the law."

but in this case, the law itself is the crime.

-

in response to lawyer arguing against lynching gays:

Call it whatever, fight for it in court(since you're a lawyer), your opinion bothers me less

-

Decades from now, I can see myself watching movies showing how we acted on ignorance and religious intolerance killing our own because they were different. I wanna be able to look at my children and tell them I never supported it. I'm not gay, nor am I a believer of any religion. But one thing is true, the desire they feel are sincere deep hearted love that can only come from a sense of genuity.


  --- re: "the desire they feel are sincere deep hearted love that can only come from a sense of genuity". Yeah. And its the same with those who commit incest, bestiality and pedophiles. 
Its wrong and abnormal whether you accept it or not. Because it has been tolerated doesn't make it right.
People can make anything look good if it favours them and this is the case with this topic. Its just sad

-

I don't want foolish knowledge.

Terrorism is a naturally occurring phenomenon, which which has been with humankind from the beginning of his existence on this planet. This is something that science has come to realise in the last few decades (and much of the rest of the world too).

Maybe we should legalize terrorism too.
Abeg. Park well. BRT dey come

What It's Like To Go Blind | BuzzFeed - Yahoo Screen | GGTU Research | Scoop.it
Now 29 years old, Marc Muszynski was in kindergarten when a vision test revealed the grim news that he would slowly go blind from macular degeneration. Marc is an LA-based writer who currently works in online media for the LA Philharmonic Orchestra. When he isn't interviewing artists and posting about upcoming concerts, he writes, produces and performs live comedy shows with his group, Octavarius. He has also written and directed online sketch videos as well as an incredible transmedia webseries called "I Made America." Marc grew up just outside of Chicago in Palatine, IL, where he was the eldest of three kids. He graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Theatre from Illinois State University in 2007. After that, he worked with Chicago Human Rhythm Project, a non-profit organization, until leaving to work in online marketing for The Second City. Though things are harder for Marc, he finds that he has more drive and determination because of his disability. He likes to joke, "I can never drive a car, but the upside is that means I also never have to be the designated driver."
