According to the authors, gay men also love to visit the gym, but not so much to practice, how to communicate with other men.
Lesbians can be identified by the desire to be one of hostility to men. They also love to cuddle and hold hands, clarifies the issue.
At the same time, the newspaper published an article in which the author talks about the dangers of homosexuality, calling the phenomenon a problem for society. In proof of his point of view, he quotes from the Koran.
Materials caused outrage among human rights activists in Malaysia. In particular, popular YouTube activist and blogger Arvind Kumar (Arwind Kumar) commented on the article: “I don’t know who wrote it, but I will tell you: do not try to be God. (…) If you want to enlighten society, explain how are the pedophiles, murderers and kidnappers, those people who are a real danger. (…) How gay people threaten your life?»
The publication reports that, according to activists, in recent years, the movement against homosexuals is gaining momentum in Malaysia, where Muslims make up more than 60 percent of the population. Same-sex relationships are prohibited by certain laws based on Sharia law; their violation is punishable with imprisonment up to 20 years.
