Gay Sex is Bad, But Men Raping Girls is Natural...?

From Bilerco:
[Stephen] Fry noted that the documentary [called "Out There"] brought him to places as diverse as Russia, Brazil, India, the United States, and Uganda. And then he dropped a bombshell:
I actually got a Ugandan minister to say on camera -- he's the Minister for Ethics and Integrity; it's the only such ministry in the world -- and I said to him, 'Look, even if these... utterly false supports on which you base your homophobia were true, which they aren't, there's so much more to worry about in your country than the odd gay person going to bed with the other gay person. For example, you have almost an epidemic of child rape in this country, which is just frightening.' And he said, 'Ah, but it is the right kind of child rape.' 
Ferguson and the audience were understandably stunned. Fry continued:
I said 'That was on camera. Do you know that that was on camera?' He said yes. I said, 'Can you just explain what you mean? He said, 'Well, it is men raping girls, which is natural.'
Note: The relevant part of the video starts at 27:49.


If you are going to have a Minister of Ethics, it should probably be someone who does not think there is a "right kind of rape." Maybe that is just my opinion though...
