Govt warning to Pink Dot participants

In Uncategorized on 04/06/2016 at 5:10 am

On the day before Pink Dot, we read news from the govt about how new HIV cases among homosexuals last year has climbed to the highest levels in at least 7 years – 232 new cases, a 27% over 2014. The gory details http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/455-new-hiv-cases/2838260.html?cid=FBcna

Pink Dot has on the face of it very credible and praiseworthy motives that S’poreans should buy into: tolerance and minority rights. But let’s face it, it’s the best place to find sexual partners without the danger of being beaten-up if the proposition offends. It’s S’pore’s and the region’s (Remember homosexuality is haram in M’sia, Indonesia and Brunei) biggest and best pick-up event that comes around every year. Gays have said so.

And the organisers do know it. A few yrs ago, the organisers were criticised  by some gays (Really randy ones?) for playing down gay sex when publicising “gayness”. Sounds like the way, Disney cartoons treat sex: chastely holding hands.

Seriously, the “health warning” together with the retention of s377A of the Penal code, while tolerating “gayness” shows the PAP administration remains ambivalent about homosexuality
