Yes, Putrajaya has gone bonkers! It should focus on rising crime rate and bad governance rather than homosexuality. Investors are worried about rising crime. International Trade and Industry Minister Mustapa Mohamed has just chaired a meeting with a group of foreign investors on security situation in the country.

Yesterday, a local singer Eric Lim’s car was stolen and driven away by two men in Puchong.

Yet, the central government would rather spend our limited resources on something like coming out with a list of symptoms on homosexuality.

Putrajaya has endorsed a list of identifiable gay and lesbian traits to schools and parents to prevent the spread of the phenomenon among teenagers, especially students, according to media reports.

The list published today by the Chinese-language Sin Chew Daily says that gay men have muscular bodies and like to show off by wearing V-neck and sleeveless clothes, prefer tight and light-coloured clothing, are attracted to men and like to carry big handbags similar to those used by women.

Lesbians are said to be attracted to women, like to eat, sleep and hang out in the company of other women and have no affection for men, according to the report, which quoted the guidelines published by the Yayasan Guru Malaysia Bhd and Putrajaya Consultative Council of Parents and Teachers Associations.

Deputy Education Minister Mohd Puad Zarkashi said few people understood or knew the early “symptoms” of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community to prevent its spread. It is a shame that Puad has chosen to spend his time to admonish the LGBT community rather than using his position to help improve the quality of primary and secondary education.

LGBT community are entitled to their rights too. It is not for us to say if such tendency is right or wrong. It is even more ridiculous for Putrajaya to try to label certain traits and individuals as gays or lesbians.

Maybe Puad should start the identification process with his own coalition/party leaders and their family members.

Just when you think things cannot so sillier, there is always another joker trying to outdo the record. Welcome to 1Funny Malaysia! -khookaypeng
