[Malaysian Govt endorses guide on how to spot gays]

A government-endorsed parenting guide that describes symptoms of homosexuality has kicked up a storm on the Internet, with human rights and sexuality activists expressing shock and disgust.

Sin Chew Daily today reported that the Education Ministry had endorsed the guide as helpful to parents and teachers.

It was launched during a seminar in Penang yesterday. The event, billed as “Parenting in addressing the issue of LGBTs (lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders)”, was officiated by Deputy Education Minister Mohd Puad Zarkashi.

The guide listed four symptoms each for gays and lesbians:

For gays:

Muscular body and a fondness for showing off the body by wearing clothing, such as by wearing V-necks and sleeveless tops

A preference for tight and bright coloured clothes

An inclination to be attracted to men

A tendency to carry big handbags, similar to the kinds used by women

For lesbians:

Showing attraction to women

Distancing themselves from women other than their girlfriends

A preference for hanging out, sleeping and dining with women

Absence of feelings for men

For gays:

An inclination to be attracted to men

For lesbians:

Showing attraction to women

That's some fine detective work there...

The gaydar is not strong in this one.

9/18/2012 10:49:35 AM


And we didn't even have to bomb their country back into the Stone Age.

9/18/2012 11:12:52 AM


Well, file that under "D" for DUH!

Really? A man with a preference for sex with men means you're gay?


9/18/2012 11:13:32 AM


So basically stereotypes. Also some do seem contradictory

The guide also listed four symptoms of bacon loving:

Expressing desire for bacon

Lesser interest in breakfast sausage

Seen eating bacon

Purchasing of bacon-themed apparel and goods.

So, why do you want to spot gays?
Dating opportunities?
To be able to be a bit extra helpful to your son/daughter as s/he is confronted with a less than gay-friendly environment?
Perhaps you think that you can beat it out of your child?

9/18/2012 11:41:04 AM


Of those two lists, the only indicator of being GLBT is an attraction to the opposite gender. Literally, that's the only indicator. Really, what the fuck did I just read?

So if your boy dresses like a hipster or works out like a bro, he's not necessarily gay, Malaysian people, even if that handbag is just fabulous.

Similarly, if your daughter doesn't care for mom's boring social circle and just wants to hang out with her friends, and doesn't accept the advances of men like a good little domestic slave, well congratulations, because your girl is growing up in a society where women are beginning to be viewed as people.

Damn, I think I might be a lesbian!

9/18/2012 2:13:07 PM

I think the big handbag thing is stereotyping gays. Most gays I knew used a manly rucksack.

A lesbian showing attraction to women ! the horror , the ... oh wait .. ism't that normal for lesbians ?

Fawful has seen God has a vagina on top of his penis

"For lesbians:

Showing attraction to women

Distancing themselves from women other than their girlfriends

A preference for hanging out, sleeping and dining with women

Absence of feelings for men"

There are no words for how stupid this is.

9/18/2012 4:51:49 PM


You heard it here first!
muscular body = gay
All those prizefighters and football players you rooted for must love the man-meat!

9/18/2012 6:43:56 PM


"A tendency to carry big handbags, similar to the kinds used by women"

So my laptop bag qualifies?

9/18/2012 9:40:33 PM


I'm a freaking lesbian! Why didn't I notice it before!

9/18/2012 9:57:37 PM


How tobtell if your son is gay:
Invite him to bake a cake with you.
If, while you're in the kitchen together, he's sucking another guy's dick, then he's gay.

9/18/2012 11:02:58 PM


Wish having a muscular body was a real symptom of being gay. ;)

9/19/2012 5:19:14 AM


Wow, these guys are sharp. I never knew any of that stuff. Next they'll be telling me my dog is a dog if he barks.

How to recognize an African-American:

1. Inability to pronounce the word "alright."
2. Enjoys dancing, watermelons
3. Runs really fast
4. Darker skin

9/19/2012 5:25:59 PM


So, being attracted to the same sex is a symptom of homosexuality. Exactly how long did it take these folks to make this earth-shattering discovery?


> V-necks and sleeveless tops
> tight and bright coloured clothes

The 80s called. They want their awful fashion back.

9/19/2012 10:08:16 PM


Gays and Lesbians are attracted to their own sex. Huh. Who would have guessed? (Besides, obviously, you know, everyone).

Two more things:

1) So not being attracted to men is a sign of Lesbianism? Well, duh, but methinks someone might try and take advantage of that to get with a girl who just doesn't like them. It also makes me suspicious as to why they didn't say gay men weren't interested in women.

2) Men with women's handbags are gay? Ooh, that's going to be awkward for the guy holding a woman's handbag whilst she's in the changing rooms or something.

9/20/2012 2:45:09 AM

If women hang out in groups it makes them all lesbians? What?

9/20/2012 1:36:49 PM


"Inclination to be attracted to men?"

"Showing attraction to women?"

You, sir, have just discovered the fact that homosexuals are... well, homosexual. Congrats.

9/21/2012 2:02:35 AM


This is so stupid it's funny ... I am inclined to call POE
