Holler! This is the most decent and less intriguing title I could think of.
I have been living in Malaysia as an expatriate for almost 2 years now. I have seen how Kuala Lumpur is very open to modern change and that includes the social norm of having LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community especially in the main streets of the city. But this does not mean that it is actually legal to be like us, especially those who are bounded to Shariah Law.
According to alternative news site Malaysiakini, these guidelines were launched in a seminar in Penang yesterday by Yayasan Guru Malaysia Bhd and Putrajaya Consultative Council of Parents and Teachers Association.
The guidelines list four symptoms each of gays and lesbians:
[toggle_framed title=”Symptoms of gays:”]Have a muscular body and like to show their body by wearing V-neck and sleeveless clothes;
Prefer tight and light-coloured clothes;
Attracted to men; and
Like to bring big handbags, similar to those used by women, when hanging out.[/toggle_framed]
[toggle_framed title=”Symptoms of lesbians:”]Attracted to women;
Besides their female companions, they will distance themselves from other women;
Like to hang out, have meals and sleep in the company of women; and
Have no affection for men.[/toggle_framed]

The world knows that the former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was charged of sodomy a few years back, yet he was freed after 6 six years. Being endorsed by the Ministry of Education of Malaysia just practically means that the education representatives are teaching hate to the young people – to discriminate.

It should teach all children to be confident and to respect each other no matter who they are.[/blockquote]
Science, particularly, Psychology, has changed its side that homosexuality is not considered a disease but rather a normal behavioural pattern and another variation gender sexuality since 1970s. Touch based on religion, particularly, Islam, that it is considered as an enemy.
I wonder what would be the response of ASEAN Human Rights Mechanism and Human Rights Watch on this.
Question, how did they come up with such criteria? Who were the consultants? HA HA HA!
