    Blokes with beards is all poofters says Malaysia

    And women who hold hands are all carpet munchers.

    Of course, as the article points out, basically he's saying all those bearded mullahs are all as bent as a 90 baht note. Should get him a fatwa or two.



    Malaysian newspaper publishes 'how to spot a gay' checklist


    Sinar Harian says LGBT people identifiable by beards, branded clothes and going to gym

    A leading Malaysian newspaper has published a list of pointers for identifying potential gay and lesbian people, drawing anger from activists who said lives were being put at risk.

    The article in Sinar Harian featured bullet points of supposedly distinctive qualities that revealed LGBT people. They stated that gay men were easy to identify because of their love of beards, going to the gym – not for exercise but to check out other men – and branded clothing. Their eyes light up when they see handsome men, the article said.

    The stand-out attributes for lesbians were that they tend to hug each other, hold hands and belittle men, according to the newspaper.

    Homosexuality is illegal in
    Malaysia and punishable under a colonial-era sodomy law that carries a 20-year prison sentence.


    Campaigners have called for a softening of rhetoric in Malaysian media after a series of recent deaths of men and women suspected of being gay or transgender.


    An 18-year old student, T Nhaveen, was beaten and burned to death last year by classmates who said he was pondan, a colloquial term for a gay man. A 27-year-old transgender woman, Sameera Krishnan, was attacked with a knife and and shot three times in a targeted attack in her florist shop a few months later.


    Arwind Kumar, an activist and one of Malaysia’s biggest social media stars, lashed out at the Sinar Harian article, saying it could “take away lives”.


    “There are much more important issues in this country which need to be addressed,” he said. “If you really want to educate society then explain to them the traits of a paedophile, a molester, a murderer, a kidnapper, people who actually endanger the lives of others. How the hell does a gay person endanger your life?”


    Kumar’s outspoken YouTube video had been viewed tens of thousands of times on social media in less than 24 hours. He particularly mocked the idea that facial hair was the sole domain of gay men. “I know a lot of priests, I know a lot ustads[Islamic scholars], I know a lot of of really really religious people who love keeping beards. Are you trying to say they are gay? That’s how stupid this is,” he said.


    The derogatory attitude towards LGBT people in the media is also symptomatic of the increasing influence of conservative Islam in mainstream politics and culture in Malaysia. The Sinar Harian article was accompanied by an interview with Hanafiah Malik, a preacher who warned homosexuality was on the increase in Malaysia and said there was an urgent need to stop the trend.


    Homophobic rhetoric is also evident even in government discourse. The country’s deputy interior minister attacked Walt Disney last year
    for refusing to cut a gay scene in Beauty and the Beast at the request of the Malaysian censorship board, and a Malaysian health ministry youth video competition called for entries discussing the prevention and consequences of being gay, lesbian or transgender.


    Another article on the health ministry’s website, entitled “Why would a person be lesbian?”, states that potential causes of women being gay were their decisions to prioritise their careers and believing other women were the only ones who would understand.

    I don't regret the four years I worked in Malaysia. Overall, it was enjoyable despite the looney tribalism of the Malays, the Chinese, and the Indians. As a Mat Salleh I was treated well enough (I suspect because I wasn't part of their racial equation).
