Malaysian Anti-Gay Camp

(Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) The government has established a camp to correct effeminate behavior in schoolboys, believing that, if left unchecked, effeminate boys could end up being gay or transsexual.

Parents are being blamed for encouraging young boys to develop feminine traits.

Sixty-six schoolboys identified by teachers as effeminate began counselling this week to discourage them from being gay.

They are undergoing four days of religious and physical education.

An education official said the camp was meant to guide the boys back "to a proper path in life".[]

Gay sex is illegal in Malaysia and homosexuals say they face discrimination from government policies such as a law that makes sodomy punishable by 20 years in prison.

Activists have expressed outrage, saying the boys are being persecuted because of homophobia. Heh.
