  1. Sometimes, there are just no words to describe the idiocy of some people in the world.

  2. Malaysian, gay tourism

    Odd. Malaysia seems to like queer coin.

    Planning an exotic vacation? Then check out the destination’s top 40 first…

  3. Is this the song that was described by Sir Elton John as the “new gay anthem”?

    1. Nah mate, you’re thinking of….no wait you’re right, this is the ‘new gay anthem’ according to Elton John. Has Pink News mentioned Grindr yet today?

  4. and yet violence etc is not offfensive – show show stupid and pathetic the homophobes and religious loonies are

  5. Stupid garbling up lyrics as the whole song is a ‘gay anthem’. Anyway, I’m sure it’d just make more people curious as to what was being censored, so it’d be counter-productive.

    Just a pointles bit of show by homophobes.

  6. It’s a dreadful, backward country. Who cares what they like and don’t like?

  7. That’s another economy losing out on the pink pound. Countries like Malaysia will eventually come down on the wrong side of history.

  8. I’d call them a bunch of muppets but i’m afraid i may insult Kermit in the process.

    Yet another country who we should not buy products from or even consider traveling to and not sending Charity Aid to.

  10. I was born gay. All gays are born gay, get use to it.

    1. John Inman made me homosexual.

      > All gays are born gay,

      I am not sure that is entirely true. Whilst I am sure that many people are born gay, I have friends who consider it a product of their socialisation.

      Either way, I cannot see why the product of birth should be less valuable than the product of choice. The Equality Act 2010 makes no such distinction in relation either to belief or to religion – both of which may be chosen.

      1. I have yet to meet a person who claims they are gay because of the people they are around. Yes religion is a choice. No being gay is not.

  11. The government’s official stand does not reflect on the attitudes of it’s people. Remember when you say things like:

    It’s a dreadful, backward country. Who cares what they like and don’t like?
    and
    Yet another country who we should not buy products from or even consider traveling to and not sending Charity Aid to.

    you’re including the LGBT community in Malaysia in your insult.

  12. I find Malaysians offensive to decency. I would like the UK government to stop the entry to this country of Malaysians and kick the current lot of Malaysian bigots out.

    1. If the LGBT movement is about eliminating discrimination, don’t you think racism is also another form of discrimination that should be abolished?

      In this particular case, the Malaysian *government* that enacted those censorship laws should be condemned, but the Malaysian LGBT community – the people – deserves sympathy for being oppressed. If you conflate government and people and then discriminate the people of an entire country based on the actions of a few political figures, then that is a form of stereotyping and discrimination.

      It looks like racial discrimination is still a problem with a few people who visit this site, and more articles like this:
      http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2011/02/25/move-to-tackle-racism-on-the-gay-scene/
      should be posted here to raise awareness.

        I agree with Kyle. Perhaps people are keen to “kick out” people from England because they have never experienced what it is like to have genuine expulsions from a country on the grounds of race.

        Most countries in Europe have experienced a form of ethnic or racial expulsion and worse. I would hope that it would not be practised again.

        Further, individuals should not be judged and treated on the basis of their race. Those in the UK who are Malay should in no way be expelled on account of the laws passed by the Malaysian government or the cultural views of Malay society. Each person in the UK should be treated and given respect as an individual.

  13. wouldnt it have been much funnier if they had banned it for being a naff song.

    Just another backward country.

  15. Typical of a muslim dominated country.

    well, ‘born this way’ is not really a good song either. bad music. nuff said.
