Google analyzed its data to report on gay porn search habits. Can you guess which countries found themselves in the top five searchers of gay porn on Google, according to the report? If you answered “countries that criminalize homosexuality,” you’d be mostly right! Except for South Africa, all of the top five countries that search for gay porn throw their gay people in prison — or worse.
Kenya, which took the tiara in the report, criminalizes homosexuality with prison sentences between five and 14 years.
Countries more tolerant of their LGBT citizens don’t appear until the latter half of the Top 10, starting with Australia and the U.S. at numbers seven and eight, respectively.
Does this report prove that criminalizing being gay doesn’t actually “rid” a country of homosexuality?
