Zimbabwe bans same-sex hand-holding...

Yes, it's all those hand-holding same-sex couples that are cause of Zimbabwe's problems.
Zimbabwe strongman Robert Mugabe's government has made it a criminal offense for two people of the same sex to hold hands, hug, or kiss.

The "sexual deviancy" law is one of 15 additions to Zimbabwe's criminal code quietly passed in Parliament last week.

The sections involving gays and lesbians are part of an overhaul of the sodomy laws. Until now laws against sodomy were limited to sexual activity.

The revised law now states that sodomy is any "act involving contact between two males that would be regarded by a reasonable person as an indecent act".

Mugabe has a long history of homophobia. He regularly refers to gays and people he suspects to be gay as "less than pigs and dogs".

Earlier this year the 82 year old went on a tirade calling homosexuality "a white disease".

"Leave whites to do that," he declared.

Interestingly, in Kenya it is customary for men to hold hands while walking together. There is actually no sexual connotation to it there at all. A distant relative who is a missionary from England found it a little uncomfortable at first. His Wife found it very amusing and a great way to tease him.
