Thanks for the hatemails, you pricks!
How is that even possible. I mean, you can tell me I've bushy eyebrows or my hair is out of control because those things are physically visible. But how can you tell me things that only I can decide?
Yes. Apparently, we human have the ability to decide what to think of ourselves . Nothing in our brain is set in stone. When Aqmal pointed out that
"Studies have proven that for most people, their sexual orientation is predetermined even before birth, while the child is being concieved."
I would like to point out that during the Greek and Roman empire, homosexuality can either be considered pederastic or a sophisticated form of youth loving. During those time, homosexual acts with boys are considered nobel and a delicacy reserved for great men. When Christianity flourished within Rome, homosexuality was considered a great sin and rules such as burning at the stake was introduced by Emperor Theodosius.
Perceptions, studies and even research on homosexuality evolves throughout the centuries and I don't think it will ever stop. More and more studies on homosexuality will be conducted and still, would you still believe that sexual orientation is determined even before birth when a sequent of valid scientific reasons are uncovered? Last year, a UPM academician discovered that consumption of a certain fish contaminated by chemical pollutants attributes to men's inclination to homosexuality. Will you dismiss this study and stick to the older study that you personally believe even though the research was conducted without cultural bias?
I think it is pathetic to tell me that I'm a confused gay teenager who is in denial. Sure, you are entitled to your opinion. In my opinion, you will believe in anything that rationalizes your homosexual behaviour. I also think you have underestimated the power of human mind-conditioning. Do you think that suicide bombers are born with a cavalier attitude towards death? Do you think that sexual offenders' inclination towards commiting sexual crimes is predetermined even before birth? How is homosexuality any different?
You might argue that homosexuality is not crime and therefore should not be compared with heinous crimes I mentioned. Fine. Do you think honesty is a god-given trait? Or kindness? Is is predetermined even before birth?
You have conditioned yourself to believe that your inclination towards men is natural and you have decided to embrace your inclination. So be it. I've no problem with that but telling me how I'm in the closet? Gay sex might be fine and dandy to you but to me, it's a serious offence. How would you feel if I tell you that you're inclined to commiting incest? You'll probably jump at the idea of having sex with your own sibling but have you actually commited it? If you haven't, how can I rightly accuse you with such accusation? (and mind you, incest in several some countries is a cultural norm)
With this idea in mind, don't you think accusing me of being gay is a blatant Fitnah?
I'm glad globalization caught up on you. I like the idea of Seksualiti Merdeka. It gives me more freedom to express my views on homosexuality and put a cork in homosexuality as perceived in the light of western liberalism. We have our own way of thinking and culture. We should decide on how homosexuality should be addressed in our country.
For me, I'm a muslim and I abide by Islamic laws and jurisdictions. I cover my aurah, perform my prayers and will stay away from homosexual activities.
I respect your decision to engage in male anal sex so you have to respect my decision to stay away from it. Amen.
