Inborn, Personal And Harmless Behavior But Still A Criminal Offence.

This is what I read in Sunday’s news, because the majority of Singaporean didn’t understand or accept this fact, gay sex is still a criminal offence. But since it is inborn and it is personal, why would anyone wants to punish them for natural human behavior. I thought our government will fix things if they are not on the right side, even when some Singaporean may not understand or accept it, like our CPF scheme. I am quite confused now. I could not understand why we do not decriminalise an inborn and personal behavior which do not cause harm to others.

View Divided, So Law On Gay Sex Stays.

Mr Lee said, many people in Singapore were strongly against the viewpoint espoused by the undergrad and this was something that has to be recognised. He said that the government's view was that it should not push forward on this issue, but follow along as societal views shifted.

"Mt view is that gayness is something which is mostly inborn. Some people are like that, some people are not. How they live their own lives is really for them to decide. It's a personal matter," he said.
