Malaysia’s Islamic Leaders Looking For Lesbians

Things are about to get more difficult for Malaysia’s lesbians.

The nation’s top Islamic council told the press this week that they’re keeping an ever-vigilant – and repressive – eye out for lesbians and tomboys, who, they say, are forbidden sinners:

The National Fatwa Council issued the edict following what it said a spate of cases involving young women behaving like men and indulging in lesbian sex, the Malay language Berita Harian daily said.

“There are teenage girls who prefer the male lifestyle including dressing up in men’s clothes,” it quoted council chairman Abdul Shukor Husin as saying. “More worryingly, they have started to engage in sexual activities.”

This begs the question – if a girl likes girls but doesn’t act on it, is she still a lesbian. Yeah, chew on that!

    I am always amazed at the evil of religions and how its followers use religions to justify their bigotry

    Also, does anyone else find it strange how Perdue and his ilk refuse to comment on situations like this, but how mouthy they are with any suspicion of white on black “racism” ?

    No comment on homophobic muslims eh Perdue???

    Yeah, for what it’s worth Malaysia is certainly not a place to visit on your next tour of SE Asia. Besides supporting terrorist groups on the boarder with Thailand (and within Thailand) they also regularly accuse opposition leaders who threaten their power as being Sodomites so then can then imprison them and no long have an opposition. Oh and if you have an Israeli passport your also not welcome in Malaysia. Best to avoid. Thailand on the other hand is lovely and very pro gay.
