Uganda’s Anti-Pornography Bill 2011 proposed by Simon Lokodo seeks to imprison women for wearing mini-skirts, monitor internet usage, and ban tv dramas and shows.

The victimization of women by rape and other forms of brutality seem to always be defined and turned around on the victim because of their attire.  During a stand-up performance by Dave Chappelle he said that a woman said “Just because I am dressed this way does not make me a whore.” To which he commented, “Which is true…You are not a whore, but you are wearing a whore’s uniform.”

Simon Lokodo, Uganda’s ethics and integrity minister, must have seen the same show because Dave Chappelle made the point that the attire, while it does not define the woman, is confusing to men. It sends the wrong messages.  So Lokodo plans to thwart this behavior by proposing the Anti-Pornography Bill 2011, according to the Daily Mail.  Lokodo’s Bill sounds like it functions to prevent crimes against women, but when he defined it in his own words, it sounds more like he’s punishing women for men’s potential crimes against them.

“Any attire which exposes intimate parts of the human body, especially areas that are of erotic function, are outlawed. Anything above the knee is outlawed. If a woman wears a miniskirt, we will arrest her.”

Now if you think that’s unfathomable, you need to hear the rest.  The Bill which is supported by Deputy Attorney General Fred Ruhindi, endeavors to ban “many films and TV dramas” and monitor internet usage. Lokodo, who was a Catholic priest but defrocked by the Vatican for his political involvement, said “celebrities such as Beyoncé and Madonna would be banned from Ugandan television.”

‘Television should not broadcast a sexy person…On the internet, we’re going to put a monitoring system so we know who has watched which website and we know who has watched pornographic material.”

Do you think this Bill is more of a reflection of his own sexual frustration and issues with women rather than a way of protecting them?  Sounds like it.

  1. Ok real criminals move over and make room for women wear anything above the knee and for anyone watching banned television stations.

  2. What will he do about the thousands of men who have foot fetishes? You know, the ones who get boners just by looking at toes? There are way too many freaks walking around for this lunatic to try to control. Before he’s done, women will be walking around in burkas with only their eyes visible. Eyeball fetish?
