By supporting the Repeal 377A movement, I’m not saying that I support the gay communities and their activities. I’m accepting the fact that we are different and believe that we should be given the choice to choose what we want.
I do admit that I don’t really like gays. It is just my preference. But that doesn’t stop me from having friends who are gay. I don’t see why my personal preference should affect the people around me. I have my choice and I strongly believe that they have theirs too.
In life, there are lots of things that you like and dislike. Disliking something doesn’t mean that you should stop others from doing it. There are so many things in life that we dislike. Should we ban all of them? Can we ban all of them in the first place? So what do we aim to achieve at the end of the day? Why can’t we accept someone who is different?
Why should we stop others from doing something that they like? Why should we force them to do the same thing as we are doing? They are not doing any harm. It’s between 2 willing party. So why not just let them do whatever they want?
It’s not about gay. It’s about equality.
You may not like it, but let them have a choice.
Have you done your part to make Singapore an open and inclusive society?
In his inaugural speech, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has promised to be a leader for all Singaporeans and invited them to join him in writing the next chapter of the Singapore story.
He wants an “open and inclusive” society where Singaporeans are free to be unconventional or simply different, but at the same time with a deep common purpose and identity.
