This must be a very interesting debate. What worries me the most is not the fact that religious leaders not only in Malaysia but in many parts of the world are not open to discussion or to rationally debate these questions, but how they often resently impounding discussion because of their selfish and stubborn fear of being questioned. And what’s worst about it?: justifying it in the name of Allah!
Taping other’s voices because they threat your “supposed-to-be” authority is not a good way to make politics or to talk about rights: it’s oppression. What kind of prejudice and confusions this kind of law is going to make? Like it was said by Women’s Aid, what defines cross-dressing today? Are we going to be stuck to rules and not pay attention by observing the dialectics of habits throughout history? — how clothing, social relations and public appearence constantly change and will continue to do so?
Some people are just pathetic. Pathetically funny.
