A Malaysian government minister has said that LGBT+ people need to be helped to return to the sex they were born with, as he believes it to be the only possible ‘original’ and ‘natural’ gender identity, and if a person did not realize iit, it would lead to chaos. Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Mahfuz Omar also said that LGBT issues should not be promoted and saying that exposing such things could prevent anti-LGBT discrimination is a lie because such kind of discrimination does not exist in Malaysia. Well, the onl;y fact that he is saying so means that it does. Homosexuality is currently illegal in Malaysia, and the country has seen further moves against the LGBT+ community in recent years. Transgender people in the country can face arbitrary arrest, physical and sexual assault, imprisonment, denial of healthcare and employment, as well as other abuses. People are legally banned from wearing closes which are ‘inappropriate’ for their biological sex.
