This had been a question that was ringing in the heads of my girlfriend and me my head since I knew about this section. If you take a good look at the section, it says:

Any male person who, in public or private, commits, or abets the commission of, or procures or attempts to procure the commission by any male person of, any act of gross indecency with another male person, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 2 years.

As stated explicitly, it says any male person, any not just any person. Someone I knew thinks that it’s probably because it originated from the army days (colonial army days?) and that it’s to prevent guys who have been put in close proximity for too long to try out alternatives of satisfying themselves through the use of objects of desires. Someone else even mentioned that it’s not fair that this law is targetted only against males and not females.

Well, let’s just be a little politically correct here. Guys have a tool to use that they are put anywhere… whereas girls, well, girls have nothing to poke with! Haha.. Okie, I am saying this cheek in tongue, but even m***h**g thinks that a girl-on-girl is a little kinky too!

Don’t bombard him yet! I’m sure a lot of guys think the same way too. =P

    Just shows how useless 377A is. If it’s targeted against anal sex and oral sex, then why are such acts legalized for heterosexuals? If it’s targeted against homosexuals, then why are lesbians spared?

    Social stigma. Sheer social stigma.

    this is unfair(doesn’t mean im one of them). why is there such different treatment between woman and man when in sg every sex is treated equal(i suppose). maybe peeps should take a look at Chuck and Larry. lol

    It’s indeed not fair to gays but what to do.. males are more sexually active.

    @loveless summer: it’s probably just targeted at homosexuals – almost no doubt about it since heteros can now freely do anything they one (except with animals, i heard). As for lesbians… perhaps they… don’t have… you know?

    @tianhong: so you think lesbians should be prosecuted?

    @james chia: hmm… i’m not sure about that, but i guess so =)

    ermm. i think both les and homo is quite a pitiful bunch of people(maybe they wont want us to sympathize them either).

    sometimes people are made like this and if you stop them from loving each other it is definitely wrong. u cannot just use the perception of what’s “normal” and sentence them to doing what’s right or wrong.

    alrite juz thinkin, if both are really in love, you just need one to go for sex change. this will solve the whole problem right 🙂
