An advanced country with antiquated laws...

I would strongly suspect that whispers in high places told the judges to find any reason but not to say that the law was discriminatory - the least intelligent can easily discern that a law that incriminates men but not women is grossly discriminatory. Obviously the legal system is not independent, but subject to the whims of politicians. Lee Kwan Yue got a triple first at Cambridge but apparently learned nothing about law being the servant of ALL the people equally and passed on his dictatorial point of view to his sucessors

This was my 4th Taipei Pride March. It is still a great event with a huge number of young people. The routes this year were shorter and there were more long stops than in earlier years. The weather was also cooler which may explain why there were not as many wearing just Speedos etc. The Red House bars and restaurants were packed on the Friday and Saturday evenings, and the queues for the male hot springs were really long! If you have never been, book for next year - last Saturday in October.

If it's based on UK Law and UK have repealed homophobic laws and legalised gay marriage and the rest then .... ? In a month when CEO of Apple has publicly come out. The EU and other countries have shown that the world doesn't end if gays have equal rights (including in the military). The Catholic Pope is making inclusive statements. The UN recognises same sex unions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_at_the_United_Nations. In the 21st century - isn't it about time that Laws were based on evidence and not prejudice ?

Yes, shame to my country's legal system. The homophobic conservatives in Singapore are very vocal. Our highest court judges are too afraid to speak up based on logic & common sense, preferring to pass the buck to the parliament. As for the parliamentary debate many years ago whether to repeal Article 377A or not, Nominated Member of Parliament, Professor Thio Li-Ann, who is a law professor at the National University of Singapore, vociferously spoke against gay sex, comparing it to "shoving a straw up your nose to drink”. Her mother, Dr Thio Su Mien, formerly the Dean of the Faculty of Law of the National University of Singapore, had also attempted to lead a team of Christian women to usurp the leadership of Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE), a non-governmental organisation, accusing its programme as promoting homosexuality. Both mother & daughter attend the Church of Our Saviour in Singapore. Pastor Lawrence Khong, head of the Faith Community Baptist Church, and the LoveSingapore network of churches, also initiated a series of inflammatory speeches against gay sex. Ustaz Noor Deros, a Muslim teacher, launched the WearWhite movement, in reaction to the annual gay gathering Pink Dot event. Both men use the term “pro-family” as a shield in “protecting the societal values” and accusing gay lifestyle as being anti-family. The conservatives in Sg have very poor understanding of what homosexuality is all about. In fact, they have a serious misconception. The National Library Board initially banned the children’s book "And Tango Makes Three" in reaction to the vocal opposition by some conservative parents against this book, accusing it as promoting gay values. But liberal citizens & the gay community rebutted against this knee-jerk reaction and the final compromise was to put this book in the Adults section instead of the Children’s section.

Of course they could have made a change, they could have just said that gay sex is not indecent.

Singapore is way behind the times on both human rights and children's human rights. The aberrant behavior and treatment of children in schools by so called educators of beating students, creating an atmosphere of violence in schools. This particular behavior by the courts in Singapore makes it appear that this country has a long way to go in order to be considered a modern and sophisticated society. SHAME ON THE COURTS!

Judges and courts, politicians and people of Singapore, I want to shout "Please, go with the times. Accept that times are changing." Accept *us*. *Nothing* bad will come of that acceptance. As forward and open as Singapore is to commerce, it will only increase travel and income. It will also increase the quality of life there and in societies that look up to Singapore. Singapore will only gain from openness.

I have to add my disappointment to this topic as well. There are some wonderful LOCALLY-BORN Hong Kong Chinese guys around, and many of them would be more than capable of joining and winning this sham competition. Please... leave it for the local wonderful Hong Kong guys, otherwise why call it Mr. Hong Kong. It's CRAZY...!!!!!

Let me get it straight. The report on Mr. HK's election gets a lot of flack, and then it is quietly removed from the featured news (or apparently from anywhere). Right?

Even though same sex marriage hasnt been approved, that doesnt mean that you do not have the right to take wedding photos with your loved one of the same sex. Wedding photos serve as wonderful memories and everyone has the right to beautiful memories. Email weddingbellzz@gmail.com for more information.

1. Open Relationships: It’s a one-foot-in and a one-foot-out situation. People who are in open relationships must know that everything goes. If it’s love, you don’t need a disclaimer, make it a close relationship. 2. Neediness: Absolutely no-no unless it’s a sugar daddy kinda relationship. 3. Arguing: A pinch is enough but always make it up with hot sex. 4. Being With Someone For Comfort: Yeah, baby! Everyone needs it once in awhile. Just don’t overdo it. If money and material possession is comforting, then it’s another one of those sugar daddy kinda relationship. Nothing wrong about as long as both parties agree to the terms. 5. Going To The Club Together: No, no, no, nope! It’s like going to massages together. Unless both parties agree that one party is allowed to have too much fun; it’s best to avoid doing this altogether. Misery loves company. Ecstasy loves more company - more the merrier. 6. Putting Your Relationship Status On FB: Unless it’s a website for F**kBuddy, then don’t do it. It’s like staking a claim to a human being. We know you’re in the relationship so don’t push it on us who are still looking. It’s also drama mama to have your domestic news in my timeline. But do post some raunchy pics or vids of you both or him with another guy. 7. Not Allowing Your Boyfriend To Go Out With Friends: This is not the Dark Ages. Slavery is not nice. Unless it’s a BDSM, treat your guy with love and respect. Vice versa. Although it is puzzling whenever guys who are in a relationship kept sending me messages wanting to be my ‘friend’ or stating that they’re looking for friends only. Harlow? By sending me messages, it gave me a perception that all is not rosy with the bf. So stopped making new friends at dating websites and treasure your existing ones.

A good and interesting article to remind us some dos and don'ts in a relationship. Excitement and thrills are always at the initial stage, honeymoon period tend to be the sweetest but it will move on to another stage, when both parties will tend to understand and see each other in reality, many couples broke off after seeing their "real" partners while others would fade off their feelings and started to venture out for a better somebody. I believe a relationship has to be cultivated over time, couples must open up to discuss matters and find ways to compromise differences. When matters are opened up for discussion, both parties mustnt impose his views and beliefs on his partner, but with respect and adopt an open mind. I dun think there are many matters that are so traumatic and unsolvable, and need to call off a relationship! It is not an escapism and excuse giving session. When two persons are committed, both of them should work hand in hand to tackle issues and find ways which can strengthen their relationship as they move along. There are priorities to set and aim, regular review of these priorities would provide useful feedback and minimise unhappiness as well as misunderstanding. I believe couples who can communicate and share issues together, will have a happier and longer lasting relationship. We have to do our best if we choose to be in a relationship.

1.Open Relationship...Yuk..The world is mistaken in thinking that monogamy is a moral good. You can decide, by an act of will, to be monogamous to your partner. That does not mean the desire for sex with others is no longer there. You can make the denial of that desire as the foundation of your relationship, as in, if we love each other enough, we will control ourselves. But what kind of love is it anyway if you need to cage each other’s sexual energy? Do you really think caging each other will make you love each other more?. I dont deny its bored eating the same noodles everyday, but who ask you to eat everyday?hardly for me to believe a successful long lasting relationship in between without eat other meal than Noodles.lol Everyone has their personal understanding of "relationship", "love", and what it takes to build a successful relationship. If 2 people get together who believe in the same things, that's called compatibility .If you haven't talked about it, then you're not in a relationship. Be honest with each other, talk things out, communicate your wants, desires and expectations.
