Keep or dump 377A, you say?

In recent months, there is a debate as whether Singapore should keep or dump section 377A of the penal code. What is the big deal? It is a section of the law that outlaws homosexuality. Under this code, gays are subject to prosection in this country.

The two camps debating over this issue set up their own website to garner supports. One is http://repeal377a.com/; whilst the other is http://keep377a.com/.

What do you say? Should we keep or should we dump? Frankly speaking, I think it is a waste of time debating such a subject. The law is there to outlaw homosexuality, it is a fact. However, the government has adopted a not-to-actively-pursue such criminal acts attitude. They kind of close one eye to all the gay saunas, gay websites, gay activities. For those who have chosen an alternative lifestyle, they can live their life their way without being disturbed. So what is the big deal?

Your blogger here is still having diffculties in coping with the rising rent, rising housing prices, rising food prices, but stagnant salary. Our MPs should spend more time in keeping the inflation in check, making Singapore a better place for her citizens to live in.
