Map: Dozens of countries still punish homosexuality with prison and death
Lawmakers in Gambia recently passed a bill that would increase the country’s punishment for some homosexual acts to life imprisonment, reports the Associated Press.

The bill, which reportedly contains language similar to Uganda’s struck-down anti-gay law, now awaits the approval of Gambia President Yahya Jammeh, who’s been openly hostile to the LGBT community in the past. In 2008, he demanded gays and lesbians leave the country or risk having their heads cut off. In February, Jammeh said on state television, “We will fight these vermins called homosexuals or gays the same way we are fighting malaria-causing mosquitoes, if not more aggressively.”
While the actions and comments of Gambia’s leaders are shocking, they are far from alone in

So pissed now.

People are allowed to be repulsed by sex.

People are allowed to be uncomfortable with nudity.

People are allowed to be uncomfortable with genitalia, their own or others. 

There are so many reasons why people may feels this way, from dysphoria to being asexual to coping with sexual assault to just straight up that’s how they feel.

And that’s ok.
