hi! how are you?
i just want to comment on seksualiti merdeka 2011. it is an annual sexuality rights festival. seksualiti merdeka aim is to gives freedom to be whether gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersexed, straight, asexual, pansexual or simply fabulous and not be oppressed by the society.
first and foremost, why people become gay? the research done by Paul Cameron an American psychologist and sex researcher laid down 3 main reasons:-
- homosexual people are sexually permissive and experimental
- homosexual behaviour is a mental illness, symptomatic of arrested development;ie poor familial relation during childhood or trauma
- biological and holds that such desires are genetic or hormonal in origin
basically, homosexual is just a behaviour which can be change.
looking back to the basic, men and women were made as complementary to one another; they both need each other to feel happy and complete. look at Adam and Eve, Romeo and Juliet, and even our ancestors. we are here because of sexual intercourse between man and woman and not man+man or woman+woman.
some are confused with their identity especially those who happens to have both gender's private parts or what we called hermaphrodite(khunsa) and it is up to the parents responsibility to choose the gender of the child by observing their behavior. but that is a different issue altogether.
nowadays the homosexual had been vocal about their rights to practice as they feel they had been oppressed for centuries.
there was the story of people of the town of Sodom during Prophet Luth a.s time as the result of their homosexuality behaviour where an earthquake rocked the town, it was as if a mighty power had lifted the entire city and flung it down in one jolt and a storm of stones rained on the city. everyone and everything was destroyed. to read the whole story, click here
homosexuality had been a taboo subject where it is an offence and punishable by death even during roman empire time, holocaust during Nazi and others. it is simply unacceptable form of immoral behavior.
sexual interest is a matter of personal and it simply happen when one consented to be with another. however, being asian, we have custom that need to be preserve for future generation. it is disturbing enough to see heterosexual(straight) couples displaying their affection to each other openly. not all coming from the west is good and need to be impose in our country especially when the issue regards to morality and religion.
No religion supports homosexuality. period.
by supporting the rights of homosexuality, we eventually encourage others to be one. eventually it will be a chaos especially when the matters of family hereditary comes in.
homosexuality leads to many contagious disease like AIDS.
it is better that the matter of homosexuality be personal matter or interest rather than imposing law on them as this way we giving them chance for repentance rather than giving them rights that has small benefit to the society.
