  • If there is anyone who can comment on LGBT, it's not Jakim and the PAS cavemen. So far, all these religious bigots have got nothing to offer except for their misguided and backward mentality.

  • Don't forget being traumatized in Tahfiz schools by sexual predators teachers may also lead to such behavior.
