Malaysian Government To Parents, Teachers: Know The Signs Of Gay

Weird news out of Malaysia, from Reuters:

The Malaysian
government has begun holding seminars aiming to help teachers and
parents spot signs of homosexuality in children, underscoring a rise in
religious conservatism in the Muslim majority nation.

So far, the Teachers Foundation
of Malaysia has organized 10 seminars across the nation. Attendance at
the last event on Wednesday reached 1,500 people …

TerengganuThe "signs" of homosexuality include, among boys, an affection for v-neck shirts, the wearing of sleeveless shirts, the wearing of tight clothes in general, the using of handbags, and being muscular. The Malaysian government is less clear on how to spot lesbians. Their advice to girls' parents: Make sure your daughter avoids sleepovers.

From the Agence France-Presse:

"Definitely we support the seminars because it's good for parents to
be exposed to LGBT symptoms," Deputy Education Minister Mohamad Puad
Zarkashi told AFP on Friday, while declining direct comment on the

"At least preventive action can be taken," said
Mohamad Puad, who officiated one of the seminars in northern Penang
state earlier this week.

What "preventive action" might mean in this context is unclear. Reuters notes that a government-run camp now exists in the Malaysian state of Terengganu, where "effeminate" boys are taught to butch up.

In Malaysia, homosexual acts are officially punishable by up to 20 years in prison, though penalties are seldom enforced.

    Now…if they only had a camp for the treatment of symptoms of ignorance and stupidity…and lawmakers and gov’t officials should have mandatory attendance.

    The more stories I see about such nonsense, the happier I am that I don’t live in such shitbox countries. Seriously. You’re too in shape to be straight? I guess it’s tougher to sell the male teens in their local underground sex trade if there’s beef on that frame.

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too . . .

    I am a spiritual man, with Christian leanings and yet I find myself imagining a world, yearning even . . . a world free of the violence of religion, and the archaic superstitions of the adherents of both Islam and Christianity, who claim to serve omniscient, omnipotent God’s that always resorts to the lowest denominator in solving the problem of those that do not conform to his wishes.

    What a wonderful world!

    That trait list is idiotic. You might as well say that anyone that wears a sweater is gay. Or blondes are gay. Some guys are effeminate, it doesn’t mean anything. Some of the butchest men I’ve ever seen love sex with men. Even butch ol’ Rick loves guys.

    Silly Malaysians.

    Silly Muslims.

    Silly religion.

    Ironically, Malaysia has some of the most rocking gay life (especially in cities like Kuala Lumpur) in the region, rivaled only by Thailand. It’s interesting to note that citizens of Chinese and Indian descent, although they have been living there for centuries, are thought of as “other” by the Muslim majority, and don’t even have to follow their laws. That said, the place gave me the creeps, but there were some nice evenings involved…

    Matt Damon was asked to leave The Malaysia due to the undue influence his muscled torso was having over the school-aged male populace. The sales of flimsy, clinging v necked attired soared and suddenly schools closed due to the pupils swooning at the thought of a Hermes handbag or a Marc Jacob purse.
