from Malaysian National News Agency:

"Senator Rohani Abdullah said even though the actors might only be playing out a part, dressing up in female attire and behaving like a woman were forbidden in Islam.

"'Their actions would be seen as promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) practices,' she said ...

"She noted that the religious authorities had taken action against transvestites and transgender but not actors masquerading as women."

Folk who blame their crazy on "God" seems to be pretty much a constant in all three Abrahamic religions. Just the other day, a group out of England calling itself the Christian Voice, said an infestation of seriously well fed mice in a London grocery store was God's handiwork for the chain's support of LGBT folk.

Concerning these well-fed mice, did Christian Voice quote chapter and verse from the New Testament, or was the real source of their "theology" from The Pied Piper of Hamlim?

On the other hand, "Senator Rohani Abdullah said even though the actors might only be playing out a part, dressing up in female attire and behaving like a woman were FORBIDDEN IN ISLAM".

See the difference, Ricky, or do all Abrahamic religions look alike to you?

But meanwhile it's fine to impose the Burka on women despite the reduced visibility, the lack of fresh air in stifling temperatures and the intentional isolation of the wearer.

On a more positive side a ban on men wearing the burka may lead to fewer burglaries on jewellery stores leading to an increased id of the culprit/s..

Sweetie, the only reason why you view the nonsense of the "Christian Voice" to be rational, is because they blame their Christianity for their crazy. If the "Muslim Voice" had made such a silly declaration citing surah and verse, you'd be first in line to make fun of them, hypocrite.

Just how "rational" is getting your theology from the Pied Piper fairy tale?

On the other hand, Senator Rohani Abdullah gets his from the quran.

See the difference now, Ricky, or are you still stuck in another of your moral equivalency loops.

You're calling the good Christians over at the Christian Voice talking dogs?

They blamed their crazy on the teachings of the Bible sweetie, not the Brothers Grimm. They said so themselves. Sorry.

Look at your avatar, fido, and though crazy people can blame the Bible, sane senators like Rohani Abdullah reference the quran.

Clearly, you are the wrong person to assess anyone's sanity.

Good to hear it's not Africa this time again. Usually when these stories pop up, it is always Kenya. They are so homophobic and trasnphobic to the extent where they did not want any African male wearing braids or dreads, on their fubol team. Like what else is braids and dreadlocks but African anyway lol. The Kenyan president stated that dreadlocks and braids are feminine. Funny how Bob Marley did not look effeminate. The Rastafarian males do not look effeminate. Phobia is something that Africa as well as Malaysia has learned through conquest and corrupted teachings. I do hope Africa, and Malaysia progress to a more accepting approach towards humanity and the love for all forms of diversity, be it racial diversity or gender diversity.
