Unbelievable, and so, so wrong.
We're very disheartened and sad to report that Malaysian authorities have sent 66 Muslim boys, all between the age of 13 and 17 and identified by their teachers as 'effeminate,' to a four-day camp to receive 'counseling' on how to be masculine, as well as be discouraged against the homosexual lifestyle!
According to Terengganu state's education director, Razali Daud, the program is a "self-development course" in which the boys will undergo religious and motivational classes "to guide them back to the right path in life before they reach a point of no return. Such effeminate behavior is unnatural and will affect their studies and their future."
"It is not an overnight cure. We can't force the boys to change, but we want them to know what their choices are in life. Some effeminate boys end up as a transvestite or a homosexual, but we want to do our best to limit this."
Yes, some boys end up as a transvestite or a homosexual, and other boys become overwhelmed and repressed under the strain of being told that how they're meant to feel is wrong and a choice, and live horrible, unhealthy lives never being able to be true to themselves!
We sincerely hope that this camp has an extremely short and ineffective lifespan, for the sake of all those poor young boys being told that homosexuality is not only shameful, but something that can be changed. And of course, all the poor effeminate boys who ARE straight, and just sent there because of ignorance!
You were all born this way, and NEVER apologize for being true to yourself!
We're thinking of you!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.
