MALAYSIA: Government Sends 66 Boys To "Ex-Gay" Camp For Being Effeminate

The Malaysian government has ordered 66 boys to report to a camp where they will be "trained" out of their effeminate ways in order to prevent them from becoming homosexuals.
The boys between 13 and 17 years old reported Monday for what is officially being called a "self-development course" after their schoolteachers in Terengganu state identified them as students who displayed effeminate mannerisms, said Razali Daud, the state's education director. They will undergo religious and motivational classes and physical guidance, Razali said. He declined to give further details. The camp is meant "to guide them back to the right path in life before they reach a point of no return," Razali told The Associated Press. "Such effeminate behavior is unnatural and will affect their studies and their future."
Homosexual acts are punishable in Malaysia by up to 20 years in prison.
