Opposing gays (原名 On Behalf of the Religiously Biased)


There are misconceptions in recent letters backing the gay movement. I refer mainly to Sean Mok’s letter “Judgments on gays” (September 14).

Many people think, as does Mr Mok, that it is “obviously religiously biased” to comment that homosexual behaviour is unnatural. In fact, the objection is more psychological and medical than religiously biased.

For example, many people ignore the fact that the vast majority of homosexuals do not identify with one of their parents, mostly the father. Upon resolving this problem, homosexual desires will fade. Also, because a homosexual couple are of the same sex, the couple imitate and compete with one another, rather than admiring and complementing each other. The typical homosexual relationship does not last longer than two years.

Statistics show that the average age of homosexuals is at most 44. It is also true that medically, homosexuality is no longer considered a disorder, but this does not mean that it is not a symptom of some other problem such as misidentification with a parent.

If laws which restrict homosexual behaviour are based on “Christian” values, why do they also exist in communist countries? Many people believe that because our civil society should be built on “mutual respect and tolerance”, we should allow homosexual behaviour. Yet surely this refers to respect and tolerance towards individuals, not behaviour. Any intolerance towards behaviour is not discrimination, or else the legal system itself discriminates – it targets unwelcome behaviour such as possessing drugs and piracy. If a certain behaviour affects public health, such as an increase in the rate of Aids, it should be restricted.

Many people think, as does Mr Mok, that the local gay community is fighting “to abolish any outdated laws that make illegal those acts that allow them to express their love and desire sexually”. But the fact is that there is no existing law banning homosexuals from expressing their love sexually. Presumably the relevant laws are those related to anal intercourse; but this is only forbidden to anyone below the age of 21 so as to protect, not discriminate against, young people.

A court’s recent objection to this means that we do not want to protect people aged 16 to 21. This withdrawal of protection, ironically, is discrimination.

  1. I only heard of that court case about changing the legal age for anal intercourse when I came back to HK. I am absolutely stunned. Don’t really know what I can say to this depraved world view, and don’t want to imagine how it would be if this carries on.
