"They include: gay men have muscular bodies and like to show off by wearing V-neck and sleeveless clothes; prefer tight and light-coloured clothing; are attracted to men and like to carry big handbags similar to those used by women."

I'm not muscular, I'm chubby. I don't like showing off my chest hair by wearing V-necks and sleeveless clothes are weird in my opinion. Tight shirts emphasize my fat, so no thanks. I like dark colored clothing, still colours, yes, but not bright or light colours. I don't like carrying around a handbag, only my camera bag, in order to take pictures when I feel inspired to.

The only thing listed in the quote that I have is an attraction to men. Since that's only 20% of the points the quote details, that means I'm not gay?
The people who come up with these things are ridiculous.

Intolerance against gays in that country will not stop until another form of intolerance takes place - genocide of Muslim Malays by Chinese non-Muslims.

What does gay, lesbian, or bisexual have to do with wanting to 'change' your sex?

Shouldn't the GLB and T be treated as separate issues? The only overlap is on the issue of gay marriage but that's because depending on which sex you are legally recognized as some transsexuals aren't allowed to get married(sometimes ironically only gay transsexuals can get married assuming the other person is cissexual, of course it's always possible for an mtf to marry an ftm), so Ts also have an interest in gay marriage since if it's legal they don't have to worry about what their legal sex is.

But other than that, one person is attracted to the same sex, the other person wants to be the opposite sex. Apples and oranges.
