The Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West Constituency and Minister for Communications and Digitalization, Hon. Ursula Owusu Ekuful has shared her experience with supi supi (in the local parlance) lesbianism.
In an exclusive interview with popular media personality Nana Aba Anamoah on Starr Chat show, Ursula Owusu disclosed that she experimented with lesbianism whilst in secondary school when she was a teenager.
Responding to claims by some pastors that lesbianism is a medical condition, the Communications Minister pointed out it cannot be that persons who practiced lesbianism are wired that way.
According to the learned politician, citing herself as an example, at a certain point in one's life during secondary school (senior high school as presently known) days, experimenting with one's sexuality was a given.
But it should be treated as "a passing phase", she added, whiles maintaining that she is very much attracted to the opposite se.x though.
Hon. Ursula Owusu told the host that she is glad social media was non-existent at the time.
“Most of us who went through the boarding system would have had some exposure particularly in girls’ schools and in some mixed schools as well with ‘supism’. We did it. I don’t make any apologies about it, but I like my men....true, i wouldn't lie about it. We've all done it. We've experimented with stuff like that, but it was a passing phase,” Ursula said.
