Anti-Gay Malaysian Government Holds Seminars On How To Tell If A Child is Gay

In the rabidly anti-gay country Malaysia gay sex is a crime. Under civil law, offenders — male and female — can be jailed for up to 20 years, caned or fined.

Now the Malaysian government has begun holding seminars aiming to help teachers and parents spot signs of homosexuality in children.

The Teachers Foundation of Malaysia has organized 10 seminars across the nation with attendance at the last event on Wednesday reached 1,500 people, a spokesman for the organization told a Reuters News organization reporter.

The Malaysian government said in March that it is working to curb the “problem” of homosexuality, especially among Muslims who make up over 60 percent of Malaysia’s 29 million people.

According to a handout issued at a recent seminar, signs of homosexuality in boys may include preferences for tight, light-colored clothes and large handbags.

Deputy education minister Puad Zarkashi, has said  that being able to identify the signs will help contain the spread of the unhealthy lifestyle among the young, especially students.

Last year, despite widespread criticism, on the east coast state of Terengganu set up a camp for “effeminate” boys to show them how to become men.
