Cartoon from Punch magazine in 1857 illustrating the use of "gay" as a euphemism for being a prostitute. One woman says to the other (who looks glum), "how long have you been gay?" The poster on the wall is for La Traviata, an opera about a courtesan.
KUALA LUMPUR, July 8(Bernama) - Literally, the term homosexual refers to sexual relationship between the same gender, either man and man or woman and woman. Homosexuality is usually contrasted with heterosexuality and bisexuality. Traditionally, the term gay is used predominantly to refer to homosexual males, while lesbian is a gender-specific term that is only used for homosexual females. The term homosexual is also used for the same-sex sexual relations between persons of the same sex who are not gay or lesbian.
In the West, the morally wrong and corrupt homosexual act has turned into a sort of plague, spreading its tentacles far and wide, engulfing individuals with the tendency of adopting this immoral self-indulgence. In the country today, the gay lifestyle is believed to have sprouted rampantly. A point to note is the mushrooming of the gay clubs. A news report yesterday came out with a revelation that shocked many, gay comics, said to be sold at RM50 each, is believed to be a hot item among those aged 25 and above. But the question is that, is this upsetting trend is mushrooming?
The Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM) secretary-general, Datuk Dr Maamor Osman, said the homosexual act in the country had grown to a worrying trend. The tendency to perform homosexual acts is there, as shown by the proliferation of gay bars, Dr Maamor, who is also a general medical practitioner, told Bernama. "In the Quran, it is said that Allah the Al-Mighty had obliterated Luth's people for their indulgence in homosexual acts. "There is no forgiveness for such debauchery, to the extent that it angers Allah the Al-Mighty," said Dr Maamor.
On the health aspect, Dr Maamor said homosexuals who indulge in anal intercourse are prone to various risks. "Each of the human organs has their respective systems including blood circulation, nerves, immunity and other systems. The womans sexual organ, and hormones are different from that of the man. "There are specialised cells for certain functions.
Unfortunately for some humans, they resorted to commit deviations," he said. According to Dr Maamor, the humans gastro-intestinal system begins right from the mouth until the anus. The system is outfitted with specialised cells for the digestion and absorption of food. "There is the rhythmic (intestinal) muscle movement, known as peristalsis. And if this system is disturbed, like when anal intercourse occurs, it will invite damage to the persons physical, emotional and spiritual attributes. "As this system is not for erroneous acts, it invites various risks like the Aids, hepatitis, haemorrhoids and septicemia (bacterial infection of the blood)), said Dr Maamor, adding that this unnatural sex act also provokes various sexually transmitted diseases".
The Malaysian Islamic Youth Movement (Abim) president Yusri Mohamad said that a homosexual act is a serious immoral and criminal offence."There is no difference between a homosexual act and adultery. Hence, severe punishment should be handed down against homosexuals. Prevention and punishment must be executed", said Yusri.He said the doors that invite people to commit this sin should be permanently closed and sealed."Take immediate action against centres or clubs where the homosexuals gather, like revoking the operating license."Websites and magazines that may have room for homosexual-oriented messages should be monitored and action taken against them," he said.Yusri calls on the authorities to conduct raids, akin to that held for drug-prevention operations at nightspots and entertainment centres.Hence, the government is seen as taking stern and firm action to curb this moral decadence, unlike the western nations that provide the so-called freedom to such debauchery.
CANNOT BE ACCEPTED
"There is not much account on homosexuals in the Indian community, in some cases there are bisexuals but that is not their wishes."Even the Hindu religion does not accept homosexual practices", the Malaysian Hindu Sangham president Datuk A. Vaithilingam told Bernama.Vaithilingam calls on parents to exercise caution in and give the issue a serious look in the efforts to prevent their children from being trapped in the homosexual clutches.He said the community should be exposed to education and counselling on the homosexual topic to create awareness among the public on the ills and evils of this felony.Serious attention should also be given against illicit sexual relations in order to prevent it from becoming a menace to the society.
IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION
This act, which is like a malignant cancer, should not be allowed to spread its tentacles, as it threatens to bring destruction and devastation to the society.Hence, education for the youngsters particularly for those in schools and universities is crucial to prevent the society from being engulfed by this immoral act.In this context, Dr Maamor concurs with Vaithilingam that the parents need to boost their knowledge in order to shoulder the immense task of preventing their offsprings from being drawn into the evils of homosexual acts.Parents should not feel embarrassed if they ask for advice and counselling from the experts to overcome this issue.
Dr Maamor also calls on the Islamic Advancement Department (Jakim) to adopt an approach where doctors and psychiatrists can brief mosque officials on the issue apart from setting up the integrated referral centres at the mosques.Similar concepts can be applied at institutions for the other religions in the country, he said.Dr Maamor said the Information Ministry can use the electronic media to disseminate information on the warfare against this social scourge."We may be giving the wrong impression as if the authorities are tolerating this immoral act", he said.Meanwhile Yusri calls on the authorities to monitor artistes and actors that portray the 'feminine image."We are not saying that all of the womanly males as gays but many of the gays are from this group."We do not wish these people to be used as the illustration and model", he said.Clearly, the homosexual phenomenon is against the humans natural behaviour and should be swiftly and firmly dealt with.Not everyone wants to see the country to be overwhelmed by the influx of moral decadence that erupt from those who are out to draw the people into the dark ages of morality. -- BERNAMA
