Adam Lambert Won’t Kiss Any Dudes On Stage In Malaysia (Updated)

It’s completely ridiculous that Nasrudin Hasan, leader of Malaysia’s conservative Pan Malaysian Islamic Party, wants to ban Adam Lambert from performing in the country Thursday because he’s promoting “gay culture” by leading shows that are “outrageous, with lewd dancing and a gay performance that includes kissing male dancers, this is not good for people in our country.” Oh, wait, you saw the photo? Oh, wait, you’ve seen him on tour? Maybe this Hasan character has a point! But c’mon, Hasan, it’s not like Lambert is screwing every dude in sight. Update: Lambert will “tone down” his show because he doesn’t want anyone feeling “uncomfortable.” So: No gay kissing.

      Adam actually isn’t girly.

      People assume that just because he wears make up. But he is really a masculine top. He dates men that are way more effeminate than he is.

      I’ve seen him in concert and he projects a very masculine energy, even with the make up and flamboyant clothes.

      He puts on a great show (atmospheric vocals, high energy, live band rocks out) and he dances provocatively with his male dancers during his song Fever (written by Gaga) and kisses his bandmate Tommy.

      Malaysia is a moral backwater. Has been for years now. Their opinions are worthy only of moral disgust.

      @ NATEB79 – I second that!

      @ JOSH – Just b/c 2 twinks are bumping pussies and trading lipstick doesn’t mean that one of them has to be a masculine top.

      I’ve only known him by media coverage but finally heard a few seconds of his latest song. It was the opposite of good music.

      Adam is fine with homophobia, not even a small, tiny protest? No?

      You bitches are going to condemn an entire country because ONE of their extreme political parties condemns gay culture? WE have political parties just as bad in Europe and North America. Malaysia has more in common with the Pacific Rim than it does with Saudi Arabia. Not that some people care, any country that isn’t a giant Amsterdam is evil and “backwards,” they’re all the same. I can hear you saying “I can tell someone is prejudice just by looking at them!”

      What?

      You have something nice to say about country with laws like this:

      “Section 377 of the penal code prohibits heterosexual and homosexual sodomy with punishments including up to twenty years in prison and or fines and whippings. Section 337a more narrowly prohibits acts of “gross indecency with another male person” with punishment including up to two years in prison. Cross-dressing in public is also a crime under vague laws against public immorality.”

      I read these snarky comments (and not very clever ones at that) and wonder what purpose they serve. We rail against haters/bullies and point to them as one of the reason LGBTQ suicides are on the rise. We assure our youth that “it gets better.” I wonder what me mean by that? Oh, maybe we mean the the same words aren’t so hurtful when spoken by members of our community aganst other members or our community. There certainly are some youths who are fans of Adam and look up to him because of his courage to be true to himself. Like Adam or not, that’s fine but does it give you some sort of satisfaction to make these mean/bitter comments? Does it ease your insecurities or make you feel powerful, in control or clever? When we tell our gay youth the motivation of bullyies what do we tell them? Please, tell me is there any difference?

      I expected comments gay sites to bash Adam, they always do. This is not about fems or masculines, it’s about Adam being singled out for being gay. But hey, the gay community never liked or supported him, so he is very brave for standing up on his own. In addition, Adam is currently the most successful Idol contestant from season 8. Imagine that, and openly gay male pop singer with two top 40 songs on the pop and BB Hot 100 chart. A platinum single (WWFM), gold single (IIHY), and gold album in the States (even more certifications worldwide). Give this dude some credit…he has consistently been on the charts since January 2010.

      @MM: “Sodomy” was illegal in parts of the US until within the last decade, and the only reason it was legalized was because of judicial fiat. It was in the United States that the FCC and ABC flipped a shit over Adam Lambert’s performance. We’re obviously better than Malaysia and most of the developing world but I can’t stay quiet while some ignorant American bashes it for being a “Muslim country” that Lambert should “stay away from,” because obviously all “Muslim countries” are Iran right?
      Malaysia is the size of Texas and full of young people who listen to Western music including a huge Chinese population. Most artists doing Pacific-Rim tours perform there.
      Obviously it has room for improvement with regard to Human Rights but again, it’s not the Middle East or Africa where governments literally HANG men accused of homosexuality.
      Americans should learn about foreign countries and not paint everyone with a broad brush. Otherwise you might as well vote Republican.

      What NOT to do in Malaysia LOLLLL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdBYUW_FsEc

      For all you hateful uninformed morons, Adam Lambert and Tommy Joe Ratliff are 20th Century men. The faces and voice of the new generation. Not the ignorant voices of the old bitchy “would be” sterotypes.

      And @NAP79 WTAF does THIS mean?? “I’ve only known him by media coverage but finally heard a few seconds of his latest song.”

      A) I call bullshit. Too contrived to be believed.
      B) Do you ~actually live your “life” this way? Pathetic. No wonder the country is filled with ignorance.

      I would understand if his make up was war-paint or even some animalistic painting, hell, even Ke$ha’s face painting is more masculine than his drag queen eyeshadow glitter and sequins!

      Why do so many gays believe it is completely OK to use disgustingly homophobic language when discussing other gays? How can you expect any respect from straight people when you yourself perpetuate all of these ridiculous notions of masculinity and traditional gender roles?

      Also, does anyone other than “NOTQUITEASIAN” understand that there are vast differences among societies out there in the real world and that we shouldn’t lump them all together? Homophobia is completely wrong but it is also a worldwide disease that will take quite some time to eradicate. It will take a lot more work and struggle.

      Adam caving in completely to the threats of a rightwing party and cancelling his Malaysian performance would be much worse than modifying his act slightly and giving visibility to gay people in a more conservative developing country. Like it or not, there are far more Muslims on this planet than atheists, agnostics, Unitarians, etc. There are far more people living in less developed countries and their population is growing rapidly. You cannot ignore this and sit in some Western bubble thinking everyone else will magically become just like you and you should ignore them if they refuse to instantaneously change to your liking.
