Typically Singapore?

Singapore government is at it again or should I say are still at it? Going around fining people for things they "deemed" not good. It seems like the whole country can only function with all sorts of fines, iron fist perhaps? Of course a country needs some laws for this and that but the way they do things mimics a the Nazi.

The Media Development Authority fined MediaCorp TV Channel 5 $11,000 for airing an episode of Find & Design where a gay couple transformed their games room into a nursery for their new baby.

Their reason for it?
Homosexuality should not be advocated as a lifestyle choice.

A gay relationship should not be presented as an acceptable family unit.
Kinda sounds retarded... I can't believe they still think its a choice and who are they to deem what is an acceptable family unit? Despite being a developed country and having one of the highest concentration of queers in the region, are the people so this closed minded about things like this? Or perhaps its only the government that needs an eye opening experience?

You know you love me.

Living in S'pore for the past 2 decades, i could say...

No homosexuality allowed on TV, but homosexual content is ok in cinemas, at least we get to watch Bangkok Love Story (a story about a male assassin and his male victim that he was about to kill, but both falls in love when he saves the assassin), Wilde (a 97' gay drama about the life story of Oscar Wilde with Stephen Fry as Wilde and Jude Law as his lover) and Lan Yu.

You can find lots of gay lifestyle shops in Central area, with loads of hunks and cuties walking on the streets of Orchard Rd in singlets and shorts.

And best of all, gay pubs with rainbow flag openly displayed outside the pub. :)
