One of Malaysia’s highest Islamic bodies has banned females from dressing or behaving like men and engaging in lesbian sex, saying it was forbidden by the religion.

The National Fatwa Council late Thursday issued its ruling following a two-day meeting that discussed recent cases of young women apparently behaving like men and exhibiting homosexual tendencies, state news agency Bernama reported.

Council chairperson Abdul Shukor Husin told Bernama many young women admired the way men dress, behave and socialise, violating human nature and denying their feminity.

Forbidden and banned

“It is unacceptable to see women who love the male lifestyle including dressing in the clothes men wear,” Abdul Shukor was quoted as saying.

“(Masculine behaviour) becomes clearer when they start to have sex with someone of the same gender, that is woman and woman,” he said.

“In view of this, the National Fatwa Council which met today have decided and taken the stand that such acts are forbidden and banned,” he said.

Male homosexuality, considered against the order of nature, is illegal in Malaysia but lawyers say female homosexuality is technically permissible as there are no provisions for it under the law.

The Fatwa Council does not have jurisdiction in civil law, but the ruling appears to be an attempt to push female homosexuality towards illegality.

Islam is the official religion of Malaysia, where more than 60 percent of its 27 million people are Muslim Malays who practice a conservative brand of the religion.

  1. So many fatwas but very few action on the poverty problems, demolished homes, and corruptions.. tak habis2 nak control moral of the people below.. and not looking at the real daily lives issues… the fatwa council should be looking into or better still, probe into corruption on the highest level in this country. That’s the biggest culprit in our society. See if they can come up with fatwa saying that all in the government esp. the ministers who took bribe or associate themselves with the bribe and taking the people’s money will go to hell. I bet they wont say that publicly. Mesti generalized to everyone…. That’s why the only way to make it seem they are doing their job in the council, is to find the weakest individuals in the society and pick on what they should or should not act and dress according their standards of how womyn and men should dress. And claim our moral dah terpesong.. Whose moral dah terpesong? The corporation and the government’s moral yang dah terpesong! They don’t give a squat about the Kampungs that had been demolished and being demolished. Why the council did not issue a fatwa on the demolition of people’s houses? And make a big fuss about it.. this is bullshit.

  2. they are done with gays and transsexuals so they are moving on to lesbians and tomboys now.

    how the fuck do you define a tomboy?!
    i wear jeans and t-shirt all the time. i don’t own a single skirt. so does that then make me a tomboy? and yes, i also have short hair. so how? cukup kriteria tu. masuk penjara?

    ok thats the way you dress, but how on earth can someone identify those whom are tomboys by the way they behave?
    i m loud. i m whiny. i m rough. does that make me a girl or a boy?
    i dont wear a bra? macam mana? perempuan ke lelaki ni? adui!!!!
    confused!!!!!!

    when we are all trying to go against the social construct and norms, here you see people trying to reinforce it in the name of Islam. gender ialah konstruk sosial yang ditentukan oleh masyarakat. mereka yang bagi peranan dan tanggungjawab kepada lelaki dan perempuan. perempuan kena lemah lembut, tak boleh bising, kena main dengan anak patung, pasif, bersifat feminin. lelaki pula kena kasar, tegas, aktif, bersifat maskulin. here what i said in bm was gender is a social construct and society assigns/gives you these roles and responsibilities through the process of socialization. for instance, a girl has to be soft, she cant be loud, she has to play with barbies, be passive, and feminine whereas boys have to be tough, rough, active, and masculine. these are the things that the society instills in your brains from the day you were born maybe even from the day you were conceived. some people are just crazy.

    and why is it wrong with being tomboy or a lesbian?
    if i like to wear jeans and t-shirt and sport short hair, what is to you?
    and if i like girls, so what the big deal?

    there have been studies to show that homosexuality is not something which happens thru socialization but it is genetics. who are born like that. you cant change that. so why the fuck are you forcing people be something that they are not and why are you punishing people for who they are? no one is charging you and keluarkan fatwa for you being straight or a heterosexual?

    and you need to understand that not all lesbians are tomboys and not all tomboys are lesbians. they two very separate different ideas. lesbian is sexual orientation while tomboy is a “switch” in gender roles. tomboys tend be more masculine, thats it. you also need to understand that tomboy can also sometimes be a phase for many girls. i know friends who used to be very “tomboy” but then grew out of it.

    what is the fuckin big deal???!!!

    why dont they have fatwas against those yang abuse humyn rights or discriminate people. huh? why not? since they so into righteous shit kan.

    i m just going all over place with this. i better stop.
