Winning hearts and minds for s377A repeal

The LGBT community and allies have wasted no time in starting to campaign for the repeal of s377A.

I hope they listen to what a Mr Shahani, author of the 2008 book Gay Bombay: Globalisation, Love and (Be)longing in Contemporary India, says about winning “hearts and minds” of the public.

“I don’t think India is homophobic as much as it’s ignorant and we are also fixated on the idea of heterosexual marriage. It’s about widening people’s minds to the idea of love in all its forms.”

Those of us who are boh chap on the issue are joking that we’ll be labeled homophobic for juz being boh chap.

    You don’t talk about love to a country with no understanding, nor the SPIRIT, for love.

    It is a BOOK nation. From religious behaviourism to community services are all driven and regulated by the book of…..LAW

    You are cows for the milking period by idiotic leaders!

    Ha-ha-ha-ha! The late LKY had believed in Eugenics; remember the Graduate Mother’s Scheme of income tax incentives for procreation, maid tax write-offs & other special benefits. Yet if Eugenics were an important feature of LKY’s Elitist society & for S’pore’s future, how then is his Grandson who had came out publically as a Same-sex practitioner with a same-sex partner in tow, how is that even POSSIBLE within LKY’s Eugenics theory?
    Isn’t the FamiLEE (with LKY as Patriarch) who were so fixated on the traditional idea of heterosexual marriage (for procreation) yet within their own family genetic framework, they had a homosexual gene. And two of LHL’s offsprings from his deceased 1′st wife had been shrouded in absolute mystery & under cover for so long – as if they never existed?
    Even Lee Wei-Ling (LKY’s only daughter) remained unmarried, ‘accepting’ spinsterhood as a lifestyle choice or was there a ‘hidden’ reason? And that was LKY’s absolute fear, that highly educated women would remained unmarried due to a shrinking pool of eligible graduate men thus creating a declining pool of natural ‘talents’ with high IQs. He implemented social gathering for single graduates to meet on tax-payers’ expense. Yet it was quietly withdrawn & the subsequent results no benefit to S’pore IQ bank nor to the backsliding Economy. Instead, LHL implemented his own Population Growth Policy since he came onboard as PM in 2004.
    And now with the S’pore Economy going nowhere & facing large costs increases (water, electricity & GST) it is funny that we’re facing in the Mainstream media reporting, a campaign for the repeal of s377A. And this had been ongoing for so long, that it’s no longer funny nor unique. I would dare say that it’s a distraction from the main issue of the worsening Global Economy – much like the many issues that had cropped out within Mainstream media reporting the last 3 to 4 years – not only distracting but also camouflaged the pertinent economic issues & concerns away from people’s minds.
    What I say, isn’t it correct? Comments, please!

  • Malaysia boleh Singapore bodoh:

    CI should have “boh chap” and not comment on the issue. He must be homophobic. You asked for it. You got it.

    Cynical Investor,

    Two persons can love each other, and gay couples need not have a traditional marriage like a male and female couple. And gay couples also no need to have children.

    There are many kinds of love, one of it is selfish-love. Gays should learn how to be selfless first.

    Ha ha ha!

    I now understand what is going on. To stop $G locals from having children so that more FT can come in – the pappies are expecting us to become gay instantly (like Indian become Malay.

    Gay means no children! So the gayer the better !

    I know your cunning plan now!
