Skip to comments.Malaysian newspaper publishes 'how to spot a gay' checklist
Posted on 02/12/2018 4:30:21 PM PST by RoosterRedux
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 Malaysias 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?

Did it have “voted for Obama” at the top of the list???
This thread will not end well.
I will get flamed for saying this, but, many homosexual men, not all, but many I’ve met, have a certain distinct manner of speaking.
Wears “Mom Jeans”...
OK — you wins the interwebz for today! LOL!!
Neither do Homersexurals...
You win first prize. I think its because they freeze their balls off.
Wow, who knew all Orthodox Jews were gay?
Kidding aside, this is horrible. Its like Germany publishing “how to spot a Jew” articles. Of course the articles are going to be used for unruly gangs or mobs to target and beat up gay people. That probably is their purpose. Gay people should not have special rights but they should not be targeted for physical violence or be jailed simply for being gay. Gays in the US don’t know how good they have it.

I have heard that they are often pictured sitting in chairs surrounded by plants.
You do know that two of the pairs skating in this Olympics are actually married? The men are not all gay.
But it helps.
I once told a gay friend that you could tell a man was gay because he always washed and dried the sink after using it. He actually agreed. My husband does not even wipe the counter tops let alone the sink.
“Though unpublished, the number 1 (#1) indicator of gayness was posting Q Anon threads on Free Republic.”
Corrected it for you.
I used to have a beard...and I am not gay.
