The Malaysian government’s strange advice to parents
  • The Malaysian Teachers Foundation has issued guidelines for parents aimed at identifying signs of homosexuality.
  • Listed below are wearing V-neck sweaters, sleeveless T-shirts, and tight clothing.
  • Deputy Education Minister says few people know the “symptoms” of homosexuality
Signal: The Malaysian Teachers Foundation, backed by the Malaysian government, has issued guidelines to teach parents how to tell if their child is gay, including if they wear V-neck jumpers, sleeveless T-shirts and tight clothing.

They were once considered cutting edge of fashion, having been worn by the Prince of Wales in the 1930s and Wimbledon-winning tennis champion Fred Perry.

More than 80 years after it was first sold, the V-neck sweater remains popular with both men and women.

But in Malaysia, wearing that type of sweater is considered a clear indication that the person may be gay.

Government officials in the Far Eastern country have issued a set of guidelines to parents that they say are clear signs of homosexuality.

This includes the wearing of V-neck sweaters and a preference for sleeveless T-shirts.

Teenagers who wear tight, brightly colored clothes and have toned bodies also tend to be gay.

The so-called signs were issued by the Malaysian Teachers Foundation and backed by the government.

Mohamed Poured Zarkassinot, the country’s deputy education minister, said few people in the Muslim country understood or knew about the early “signs” to prevent the spread of homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism.

Ten seminars have been held so far in Malaysia to teach parents how to spot homosexual tendencies.

More than 1,500 people gathered at a recent rally to hear Zarkassinot say guidelines were being issued to help children avoid “unhealthy activities.”


Homosexuality is illegal in Malaysia and considered against the “order of nature”.

Last year, Malaysian authorities censored Lady Gaga’s hit song “Born This Way” after they said the lyrics promoted gay acceptance.

Amnesty International criticised the seminar, saying “it may sound like a story from Victorian England, but this is modern Malaysia”.
