This week, following President Barack Obama's announcement that he is in favor of gay marriage in the United States, Sun Media divvied up a nice little infographic showing the varying legal stances toward gay marriage in the Africa and Asia.

1) That is not Saudi Arabia, it's Sudan. 2) That is not Sudan, it's Saudi Arabia. 3) Sudan is no longer a single country. 4) That is not Iran, it's the United Arab Emirates and/or Oman. 5) That is not Malaysia, it's the island of Sumatra, which is a part of Indonesia. 6) That is not China, it's Russia (really?). 7) That is not Uganda, it's Antarctica (REALLY?).
Clearly, somebody needs to rethink their cultural standards.
