I'm Max, another oppressed member of the LGBT society in my country.
Here at my country, strong religious movements of the Muslims make life unbearable for people like me. They will often try to corrupt the public and said 'Homosexuality is a sin. You will go to hell.' . They will justify what is right and wrong for them in accordance to their own beliefs. Although the morality police will only take action on the Muslims, the news that appeared on local newspaper served as a warning to other non-Muslims to un-gay ourselves. The Muslim religious gurus will go beyond the limits of their authority, and try to spread their anti-LGBT crusade to other non-Muslim religion and the people, which is odd when they should spend more time to stop their terrorist brothers from bombing buildings, rather than insulting  gay rights.

No end for woes, no hope for comforting days, when this vortex of unrest and discrimination will keep spinning and suck out all the will to live from the LGBT society in Malaysia. 
Democracy means no one gets left behind. But Malaysia is obviously rooting for 'selective democracy' because the government itself discriminate LGBT society.

But I will not back down, because being a bisexual man is not a mistake. I am equally functional like other people. I refused to let the Muslims saturate their anti-LGBT hatred into my mind because gay rights is human rights, ask United Nation. Take that, haters.

LGBTI in Malaysia is not treated well. They have to face ridicule and are bullied. To make things worst, there are LGBTI who sexually harassed or raped younger straight people and trying to seduced other people to became LGBTI causing LGBTI to be shunned from the society even more. But they can also be the nicest people on earth (especially the trans). I pity them. But I believe LGBTI can be normal. I can. I always wish Im a boy since Im a little kid. I nearly turned into a lesbian but I choose not to. I pray and fast and keep myself away from other girls. Im cured. Love is not those you saw in movies, love grows, so its your choice if you want to pamper that crush you had into something else. Our body (that includes your feeling and stuff) is under our control. It is our responsibility. So, take control. Stop the madness. Its your right.
