Politicking Religion : I Don’t Want To Live On This Planet Anymore!

Checkout the Naughty Boys.

I have tried ignoring this issue a couple of times as to me it is a complete waste of time and a divergence from the issue of the moment, which is the multitude of corruptions and abuse of power by the UMNO/BN administration. However, it irked me beyond understanding why the Hindu Youth Organization has a problem with homosexuality. When Jaringan Melayu Malaysia, Lembah Pantai 4B Youth Movement, Young Malaysians Movement, Federation of Peninsula Malay Students and the parent-teacher associations from schools around Bangsar held a protest I was damn skeptical about the whole drama. But Hindu Youth Organization? Seriously… we have a religious identity crisis going on in Malaysia.

JMM president Azwanddin Hamzah said it was the ninth demonstration held so far and more supporters were joining them in their cause. First of all, I have not even heard of one demonstration that is held in regards to opposing homosexuality in Kuala Lumpur. I would really like to see one, because you know what’s more gay then being gay? Is the retards that think you can become gay by knowing gays.

That is super gay, like so gay go play far far away kinda gay. It’s damn gay… Now if the Lesbian, Gays, Bisexual and Transgender community have a problem with the way I use the word gay, then fucking stage a protest already. Oh wait… I remember one particular event where I saw some damn gay Malay boys… supposedly protesting against homosexuality. It was the lawyers march for freedom protest against the Peaceful Assembly Bill.

*This song is exactly what UMNOPUTERAS have done to our beloved Ibu Pertiwi.

Now the real reason I went there, is because I have this fetish for hot girls in black and white, and there is this one particular damn hot young lawyer who told me she would be going there. So yeah, I went there to check out women in the legal profession. Just in case you guys want to know, the girls were really hot, like literally hot, like makes you sweat kinda hot, you know like damn hot-lah… it was a hot day-lah okay?

So I was there checking out the girls, and bang! I saw the gayest thing I have ever seen after Bangladeshi men holding hands happily while walking. A whole group of teenagers that look like they just hit puberty wearing plain yellow t-shirt and holding banners reading “Perhimpunan Sexuality Merdeka 2.0” and “Perhimpunan Seks Bebas”. I was baffled, firstly I was shocked at how brave these young gay boys could actually come out of the closet, organize themselves like they were attending Pendidikan Jasmani and proudly hold up those banners.

* And they have issues with Sexuality Merdeka?

The real story behind it? Simple, SCUMNO was behind it. Not directly, indirectly of course. The boys were brought about by some rowdy looking Malay dudes wearing songkok, and the boys are not gays just plain stupid and ignorant. They were used in an attempt to sabotage the lawyers march. It seems like SCUMNO had a problem with Ambeega Sreenevasan chairing Bersih 2.0, and she made a human rights kinda support statement for the Sexuality Merdeka event, and since then they have been trying to discredit the whole Bersih 2.0 movement.

Azwanddin Hamzah said the protest was not a political issue, but an issue of belief as most religions in Malaysia discouraged homosexuality. Not political? Bullshit! The whole thing is politically aimed at sabotaging the Bersih 2.0 movement. Anyway, that is not my concern right now, what I would like to write about right now is about the Hindu Youth Organization’s stance against homosexuality. You know, I am no racist but when Nga Kor Ming said Indians are stupid, I took deep breath and I said “you know what… he is right Malaysian Indians are stupid. It’s an established fact”.

You hardcore Indian pride dudes jumping out of your chair yet? Here come let me repeat it again, Malaysian Indians are stupid. I mean think about it, 50 over years cheated by MIC and still they returning to vote for BN? Even after the custodial deaths, they still love the PDRM, and even after HINDRAF and all the international drama they still support Bik Mama. Just bloody vote out the skunks already? What? still angry about me calling Malaysian Indians stupid? Seriously they are, don’t believe me?

Come let’s take the Hindu Youth Organization as an example. So these Hindu Youths joined the Jaringan Melayu Malaysia objecting to homosexuality and they claim that Hinduism discourage homosexuality. Of course Hinduism does not encourage it, but I don’t think Hinduism discourages it, as a matter of fact Hinduism acknowledges it. Sexuality is a huge part of understanding Hinduism. Unlike their middle eastern counterparts Hinduism acknowledges the complex sexuality of humanity.

I’m not joking people. Hinduism is very straightforward when it comes to sexuality and it is nothing like Islam or Christianity. Hindu views of homosexuality and, in general, LGBT issues, are diverse. Homosexuality is regarded as one of the possible expressions of human desire. Since it’s so huge and complicated, I am only going to write about homosexuality in Hinduism. And of course Hindu Youth Organization, shame on you fellas for spreading false information in regards to your religion.

The Rigveda of Hinduism says “Vikruti Evam Prakriti” which means “ what seems un-natural is also natural” .The Rigveda recognizes homosexuality and trans sexuality as a dimension of human life, it is regarded as a form of universal diversities. The third gender has been acknowledged within Hinduism since Vedic times. Several Hindu texts, such as the Manu Smriti, asserts that some people are born with mixed male and female natures.

Hindu scriptures contain several stories that metaphorically have LGBT themes, often involving the most prominent Hindu deities. The deity Ardhanari for an example is the unified form of Shiva and Parvati. The deity Ayyappan, is the son of prominent male deities Shiva and Vishnu, Vishnu being in his female form Mohini.

Just a cool Sadhu

In the Mahabharata, Arjuna takes a vow to live as the third sex for a year. In some versions of the Krittivasa Ramayana, there is an interesting narrative of lesbianism. When Maharaja Dilipa died, the demigods become concerned that he did not have a son to continue his bloodline. The deity Shiva therefore appeared before the king’s two widowed queens and commanded them, “You two make love together and by my blessings you will bear a beautiful son.” The child of the two queens became Bhagiratha the king who is credited for bringing the Ganges River down to earth through his austerities.

LGBT theme in Hinduism doesn’t just stop there, it is aplenty. The following are just some example of Hindu deities that depict such themes. Ardhanarisvara – the hermaphrodite form of Shiva, Bahuchara-devi – a goddess connected with transsexuality and eunuchism, Bhagavati-devi – a Hindu goddess associated with crossdressing, Caitanya Mahaprabhu – an incarnation of Radha and Krishna combined, Gadadhara –  an incarnation of Radha in male form.

There are also specific festivals connected to the worship of such gender-variant deities, some of which are famous in India for their crossdressing devotees and homosexual undertones. These festivals include the Aravan Festival of Tamil Nadu, the Ayyappa and Chamaya-Villaku Festivals of Kerala, the Bahucara-mata Festivals of Gujarat and the Yellamma-devi Festivals of Karnataka, among others.

*You see… They even have a patron Goddess

In modern day India homosexuality was illegal until 2009, due to colonial British laws. On July 2, 2009 The Delhi High Court in a historic judgement decriminalised homosexuality in India and noted that the existing laws violated fundamental rights to personal liberty (Article 21 of the Indian Constitution) and equality (Article 14) and prohibition of discrimination (Article 15).  Even before that judgement, in India homosexuals were very rarely prosecuted despite the existence of such laws in the penal code.

Hindu scriptures describe homosexuality as a biological condition, and although the scriptures does guide the parents on how to avoid procreating a homosexual child, it does not condemn the child as unnatural. Hindus observe ceremonies such as the birth, naming, adolescence, marriage, retirement and death, but there is little known about a ceremony called the “insemination” ceremony or the Garbhadan Sanskaar.

Dutch gay couple Hendricus Johannes Deijkers (L) and Christianus Huijbregts

*You’re looking at Dutch gay couple Hendricus Johannes Deijkers (L) and Christianus Huijbregts, who are reportedly the first same-sex couple to undergo a Hindu wedding ceremony at Bali island resort, according to the Indonesian Hindu Council. The ceremony was conducted earlier today at Pupuan Sawah village on the outskirts of Tabanan, at the resort. Read more

The ancient Rishis believed there were two element that determines a child’s sex fire (agni for sun) and water (soma for moon) which determine the sex of a child. Of the 16 days from the end of the menstruation cycle, sexual intercourse for the purposes of procreation was forbidden on certain days as during these days the menses may continue. The scripture further forbids insemination on the 11th or the 13th night after the end of the menstruation cycle because then it says the child will be homosexual.

LGBT themes in Hinduism is aplenty. I think Hinduism promotes sex education, and their sex education is not pure filth, it is complex philosophy of the universe and life. So, Azwanddin Hamzah the protest was not a political issue, but an issue of belief as most religions in Malaysia discouraged homosexuality?. Yeah, and I’m the King of England. It’s time all Malaysians realize that this UMNO fellas are just rotten no good. I’m supporting the Asalkan Bukan UMNO movement, because you see even religions and by this I mean including Islam has to suffer politicking just so that the red greedy devils can remain in power.

* Yup, they go as far as twisting the good of their own religion. They use big capital in doing it too.
