Conservative Singaporeans who are taking a stand and fighting back against the LGBT community, have turned the tables on their opponents.

This after conservative Singaporeans who have had it up to here with the LGBT community’s complaints about how a local magician is perceived as being homophobic, threw down the gauntlet and demanded explanations.

One straight Singaporean, Yi Xing Lian, said: “For the life of me, I don’t know what the LGBT community is complaining about. One look at this photo and I cannot get over how gay it looks.”

“Seriously, how is this not gay?”

At press time, Singaporeans from all walks of life are at a loss for words.

 

Could it be that some people are just confused about their sexuality?:

This is to reflect Singapore’s conservative social values.

In line with recent efforts aimed at ensuring that outdoor public events respect Singapore’s conservative social values, a sweeping set of changes to this year’s National Day Parade has been announced just months before the event itself is set to kick off.

These changes include the exclusion of any activities that may potentially be construed as being pro-LGBT.

Tong Xing Lian, a spokesman from the Singapore Armed Forces’s organising body behind the National Day Parade, said: “We recognise that the issue of LGBT rights is a sensitive one in Singapore.”

He continued: “Which is why we have removed all content that are likely to promote homosexual attitudes and lifestyles to respect the conservative views of Singaporean society.”

Among the events excluded from this year’s NDP parade include: Traditionally homosexual activities, such as singing and dancing in brightly coloured and heavily sequined clothing, as well as other potentially pro-LGBT events, such as the military march-past and the mobile column, which is the phallic imagery that will likely induce homosexual tendencies in young, impressionable youths.

To make up for all these celebrations that have been cut, this year’s parade will feature Singapore’s esteemed ministers and Members of Parliament dressed in white staring at an empty stage at the Marina Bay Floating Platform, all the while discussing the finer aspects of “constructive politics”.

This announcement comes after it was revealed that Taiwanese pop star A-Mei was advised by the Media Development Authority against performing the song Rainbow at the Spring Wave 2014 concert owing to the song’s objectionable pro-LGBT content.

Singaporeans say minister Chan Chun Sing might want to re-think his logic.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are forming a smaller and smaller core of the total population in Singapore, have responded to Minister for Social and Family Development Chan Chun Sing.

This after the minister wrote a Facebook note on May 2, saying that investment bank, Goldman Sachs, should not positively discriminate the LGBT community by purposely seeking them out for employment.

He reasoned that this move is divisive for Singapore as Singaporeans are conservative.

However, Singaporeans have since responded to Minister Chan.

One native of Singapore, Tng Lang, said: “Singapore is dependent on foreign multinational corporations to provide good jobs and boost our economy. If we say we want their standing, money and financial backing but not their liberal values, then there is something two-faced about that.”

Another local, Mah Lai Ren, said: “I think it is increasingly quite hard for Singaporeans to decide on what are the norms for Singapore society. This is because Singaporeans are shrinking in numbers and since democracy is the rule of the majority, I guess we cannot really set the agenda anymore.”

They can’t wait to be part of company, they say.

A company that has Sachs in its name is specifically employing students from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

Renowned investment bank Goldman Sachs has announced that it will be holding a recruitment and networking dinner at its office next month, specifically to recruit LGBT students.

This has caused a lot of excitement, naturally, for a number of reasons.

One lesbian, Tong Xing Lian, said: “If I apply for a job at Goldman Sachs, I can tell my friends I went for a Sachs interview. That would turn heads.”

Other homosexuals are already thinking about how they are going to capitalise on their new job if they ever got into the investment bank.

Lai Zhuo Ai, another gay, said: “I can go around proclaiming I enjoy Sachs a lot because it allows me to grow as a person and an employee.”

“And I no longer have to feel shy about saying it loudly at the dinner table with my parents while maintaining a straight face.”
