Myanmar monk ridicules gay librarian who died by suicide

‘I hate the gays a lot’ the controversial Buddhist leader said and urged the laughing crowd to 'beat them to death’.

A controversial Buddhist monk in Myanmar on Sunday (30 June) used his sermon to mock LGBT martyr Kyaw Zin who committed suicide last month. In a facebook posted video with more than 2,800 shares, Koebweya Sayadaw Ashinasayar labels Kyaw Zin Win a ’sissy’, telling the crowd to ‘drop dead’ if they pity him. He also said he hates gays and encouraged violence against LGBT citizens.
Last month, a 26-year-old librarian at the Myanmar Imperial University shared details of homophobic bullying from colleagues in a Facebook post before taking his own life. His death has sparked calls for Myanmar to repeal its British colonial-era anti-gay law, which punishes gay sex with between ten years and life in prison. Activists have also called for anti-discrimination legislation to protect LGBT citizens from widespread stigma and discrimination.
‘Why should you feel bad for him?’ The Sayadaw asked on Sunday.
‘When they sent him to the morgue, they asked for two minutes of silence for their martyr. What kind of martyr is he? He’s gay, he’s a sissy, he killed himself, what martyr?’

I use to think these Asian religions are not as bad as those Abrahamic ones. But now I think all religions are evil.
2. 2019-07-03 20:12  
I'm surprised to see this kind of hate from Buddhist monk, the religion is well known for peace and acceptance but apparently not anymore.
3. 2019-07-03 22:22  
martyr mean: if you want to die, you should better to do bombing
because if you suicide alone, that non sense. and wasting

For example, you better to do bombing in public that hate you.

that is meaning of martyr

If you suicide alone, that is not martyr
that is something i saw done by other, and you know the evident
4. 2019-07-03 22:35  
people wil laught at you and no meaning , if you just suicide alone..that is the meaning of martyr
5. 2019-07-04 01:13  
So sad to hear of this... I agree with Lexuslexus I thought Buddism was supposed to be tolerant and based in peace. This is shameful of the monk to publically talk in this way... I feel so bad for the librarian who felt that this was his only way out. There are many just like him and they need to be respected and supported. It is 2019 and time for the world to grow up.

I somehow feel that many of the worlds problems are based in religion and that too is sad.

"i hate the gays a lot" .. typical ASIAN response, honey, how pathetic!
7. 2019-07-04 02:51  
Once again religion raises its ugly head.
8. 2019-07-04 08:22  
As a non- practicing Buddhist myself I strongly condemn the abhorrent attitude of this so-call monk. In Buddhism teaching compassion and love of lives including animals must be observed at all time. You bet he must be among the group who initiated cleansing of Ruhingya. Same on you and you don’t deserve this saffron robe at all.

Botwildfck - your profile says you live in Indonesia but your language is English. Having looked at the list of languages available on profiles, I am not aware if Indonesian is on that list - but "other" is. So by stating only "English" you let readers assume English is your native language.

That being the case, why do you write such childish comments in childish English? In your writing above you make what is a tragedy almost farcical. If English is not your primary language, please change it on the language list on your profile page. If it is, why do you write like a five-year old? I'd love to know.

indonesians are just like filipinos, they hate gays and/or treat their gays like circus clowns .. well, at least in the philippines they do, but in indonesia, they just ridicule them or lock them up in jail .. not sure if they actually put them to death though, but i wouldn't be surprised, indonesians are such desperate ignorant people aren't they?

Well, Singapore is largely conservative too, especially certain religious figures:

Well, there are MANY GAY MONKS and I have met MORE than one of them who has told me that MANY MONKS are gay.
13. 2019-07-04 18:47  
I think such a hate speech from this Myanmarese Buddhist monk is largely due to the influence of the sinister Wirathu.
14. 2019-07-04 20:39  
@osongbosong - "typical Asian response"? How idiotic is that? It is nonsense. You put all Asians into the same category? Including those in the new gay capital of Asia, Taiwan? Including the millions of gays all around the region? Circus clowns? You have such an enormous chip on your shoulder, why take your own personal closet frustrations out here? Don't you realise few have any interest! Get a life!
15. 2019-07-04 20:47  
@bludude06 - "It is 2019 and time for the world to grow up." Don't you realise yet that the world does not march to your drum? Would you say the same if this poor young man had committed suicide in Iran? And before you comment on that, I have been to Iran (less than two years ago). Lots of gay guys there only they are pretty much in the closet. The father of my guide even made wine - a passable Shiraz, and alcohol is banned in that country. It is a country of lovely people ruled by a dreadful regime.

Every country is different. Every country is the product of its own history, its own culture and its own traditions. We may object from our own vantage point, but we have no right to impose our ideas, our culture and our traditions on others. Talking about "the world growing up" in the context of your post is a form of cultural imperialism!
16. 2019-07-05 01:43  
mr. gunoilth or whatever yo name happens to be, sir .. mr. very pasty white man, please don't accuse me of putting all asians in one category, because the MAJORITY of asians still have a grudge and hate over being gay .. just like my entire family who don't like 'em either, it's unfortunate, but it is the truth .. ok fine, so there are SOME asians that have seen the light and opened their eyes to the gay world and that it really is OK to be gay, but most asians are stupid
17. 2019-07-05 07:38  
sad little monk.... best pray for what you are lacking in yourself i think
18. 2019-07-05 08:21  
i don't think he's a "sad" little monk at all, "pathetic" is more of the word, honey!
19. 2019-07-05 14:03  
men having only one wife, mean that the men do not like marriage with women, just little attraction to woman, poor attraction to woman.

I am see reality, no lie.
you should make comparison response:
- if you suicide alone...what reaction of public, will there care you? or they more harrash you? and violent you?hate you?etc?
Look, case of gay suicide alone were many and for years, more than 30 years
you can see the fact, what their response?
- If you make suicide bombing in public, said you die alone but thousand of others will also die, stand with you those who hate you
that what i see, not my opinion.-
i do not give you argue but reality

and if i speak by own native language, then you will not understand,
20. 2019-07-05 14:52  
Lexuslexus is right. Buddhists in general, and especially monks (and/or nuns), of all people, are supposed to be loving and accepting. This guy is a disgrace to the principles of Buddhism and is an abominable, would-be murderous BIGOT...What an asshole...
21. 2019-07-05 16:19  
men having one wife woman diagnosed as having sexual dysfuction, can they be cured?

because their sex orientation is not fully to woman, just little

What for men marriage with menopause women or infertil women?
Is that for masturbation using vagina tool?
22. 2019-07-05 16:24  
is menopause women garbage, rite?
what for men keep marry with menopause women? already decay, rite?
23. 2019-07-05 16:28  
men masturbation with vagina tools are the same as other tools. just matter of design of tool, rite? the same as you put inside different kind of dress
24. 2019-07-05 19:48  
doctor i met told me that man should be strong.
Men who marry only one woman have not enough strength physic and mentality , have not enough potent
that called weak men

men who keep fucking and marry menopause or infertil woman are dysfunction

@osingbosong - "mr. gunoilth or whatever yo name happens to be, sir .. mr. very pasty white man, please don't accuse me of putting all asians in one category, because the MAJORITY of asians still have a grudge and hate over being gay .. just like my entire family"

Why on earth do you keep harping on about your family being so totally homophobic? It's like an old record that keeps on getting stuck in the groove. Just because you are not out of the closet and just because you clearly loathe your family who would not accept you if they knew. You have clearly seen little of Asia - apart perhaps from the Philippines. You therefore put many tens of millions of Asians who happen to be gay into the same category as you. You clearly have a massive chip on your shoulder. It will be really interesting to know what countries in Asia you have visited in the last 10 - 15 years and for how long you stayed. I suggest you make a visit to Taipei taking in Saturday October 26, the date of the annual Gay Pride Parade. (Don't worry your family will not see you there!) Last year there were 140,000 marching - gay men and women, their families, a lot of children with their parents - all having a great time. This year I am certain the numbers will be well over 150,000. And that is just one city. All the major Taiwan cities have Pride Parades.

And for your information I am not "pasty white". I have lived and worked in Asia for 40 years. My skin is quite tanned - LOL!
26. 2019-07-05 21:10  
@botwildfck - has it never occurred to you that your posts are crashingly boring? Worse than boring, because you always bring up the same old nonsense. I do not know what your native language is, but your profile states "English". Since you claim not be be a native English speaker, why not write in your own language. You may be surprised that some can understand it. Anything would be better than what you write now!

Interesting how those who write the most meaningless posts usually have no photo and virtually no profile. So easy to be anonymous when you are pretending to be someone else!
27. 2019-07-06 05:54  
"I have lived and worked in Asia for 40 years. My skin is quite tanned"

good for you sir, unfortunately your tan won't last long then will turn back to white immediately, honey .. you just watch that whiteness take effect right away, you'll see .. best if you visit Palm Springs sometime, you'll stay a tan there for quite awhile, sir .. bless your skin color, which i happen to adore and love so much, i certainly love the white man, especially when he's got that temporary tan that only lasts as long as a typical four to five minute pop or rock song on the radio, child ..

"Why on earth do you keep harping on about your family being so totally homophobic? It's like an old record that keeps on getting stuck in the groove. Just because you are not out of the closet and just because you clearly loathe your family who would not accept you if they knew. You have clearly seen little of Asia - apart perhaps from the Philippines. You therefore put many tens of millions of Asians who happen to be gay into the same category as you."

well that's because i have a very ignorant, dysfunctional, gay hating and racist family, much like our current US president (i don't like his name btw, which happens to rhyme with pump and rump and sounds nasty!); and i do not care if you don't like me sounding off like some broken recording of the SAME SHITTY SONG over and over again, because my family is what they are, a pathetic bunch of morons who play the same shitty song over and over again over how it's "so wrong" to be gay, to be a "bakla" is never correct .. just like the rest of them and how "perfect" they are trying to be .. picture this sir (or if not, picture it with your eyes closed i guess?), you have an aunt who acts very butch and masculine, and her husband is very queeny and feminine .. the man has had a boyfriend or two in the military (though not sure of the aunt) .. now they have grown up kids with children of their own too .. how unusual do you think that is? don't you find that rather strange and bizarre? that happens in Filipino culture .. in fact, there's a movie that just came out recently with a famous actor that was in that movie (Eddie Garcia), he played an elderly gay man married to a woman yet has a man he plays with on the side .. again, don't you think that's rather unusual and strange, sir? there are relationships like these in the Philippines, and it's unfortunate that the man won't divorce the woman or vice versa over such a thing, and make their lives work out for the better .. i'm just pointing this out to you as an example that NOT everyone in Philippines is comfortable with being gay, at least not yet in their culture, and that's unfortunate because they don't bother waking up to smell the coffee .. all they do is just put everything under the rug and pretend to lead a straight life .. hence, this is why there are still people in that country who decide that being gay is a circus sideshow attraction only for you to laugh at and ridicule, which is never right and is never ok to do .. and filipinos will NEVER understand because they're just too dumb to know anything
28. 2019-07-06 12:58  
"@botwildfck - has it never occurred to you that your posts are crashingly boring"

i dunno about you, sir, but i think his posts are outrageously motherfucking off the chain funny, honey!! LOL!!

however, i do find his posts regarding women quite insulting and degrading towards women, especially for him to say shit like women going thru menopause (which is natural for older women and a part of life) are "garbage" and "decaying" .. that's awfully rude and cruel if you ask me, definitely uncalled for .. please remember that you were born out of a woman, we were carried by a woman for nine months and had to bear the brunt of childbirth from a woman, not to mention she also raised us, fed us, clothed and bathed us .. the woman should always deserve our respect, always .. just my 2 cents on that
29. 2019-07-06 14:16  
"I do not know what your native language is, but your profile states "English"."

no sir, his native language isn't english at all, but perhaps "pig latin" maybe? ROTFL!!
30. 2019-07-06 14:22  
@osongbosong - yet another rant about your family, this time extending to the Filipino nation. Yes, it is like a record stuck in the groove and it is so boring! You are able to change your own position regariding your sexuality but you won't even consider it and you won't even post a photograph of yourself here - as if your oh so straight family members would ever look at a site like fridae!

Now you talk only about the Philippines, but you earlier compared other parts of Asia. It is clear you really know little about present day Asia - with the possible exception of The Philippines. Yet even in that country you call the population "too dumb"! Poor you! You are so cocooned in your little world of a misery and dislike bordering on hate. Clearly that's what you want. But you don't have to spew it out every time you post!
31. 2019-07-07 07:58  
"Yet even in that country you call the population "too dumb"! Poor you! You are so cocooned in your little world of a misery and dislike bordering on hate. Clearly that's what you want."


not really, it's not what i want, yet filipinos don't like change too much, they are too accustomed to let God (or fate, whichever you prefer) be their destiny .. change does not apply to them, because God is their force that drives them, they don't know how to drive themselves to a better life

OMG! Your life must be really miserable. I cannot imagine how anyone can exist with this preying on their mind the entire time. But since we all create our own reality, I cannot have much pity for you. And I am sure you would not ask for any! Yet you continue to moan here.
33. 2019-07-08 01:24  
"But since we all create our own reality, I cannot have much pity for you. And I am sure you would not ask for any! Yet you continue to moan here."


i honestly thought i had put YOU on blacklist, sir, but i guess blacklists don't really work in the open forums .. very unfortunate indeed .. because i gotta see your bitchy feedback apparently .. you're such a bitch, sir .. you deserve a bitchslap! *SLAP* there ya go ;)
34. 2019-07-08 11:39  
@osongbosing - As I said on another news thread, I am no bitch. And I haven't the faintest idea what a bitchslap is!

I'm really sorry for you that you cannot blacklist me. But you can always avert your eyes and just not read what I write. Even better, quit your constant moaning about your life, your homophobic relatives and how the world in general seems to be so totally against you. You create your own reality. So get real.

Incidentally, your mentioning the lack of a blacklist led me to do some research on this site. Do all you guys realise that it is massively out of date? I have not tried the phone app, but I have some staggering statistics about the membership, its general age, the dates when photos here were uploaded and major failures when you try to use many of the site's functions. This used to be one of the best social networking sites in Asia. Not any more.
35. 2019-07-09 13:01  
@gunoilh2o yup, it has been sort of neglected for years now. users have flocked elsewhere for personals/hookups. what features you found are not working? what i find annoying is mostly that the site is slow.
36. 2019-07-09 13:40  
I would like to say that it boils down to this monk only but not other monks. It is the personal feelings stronger than his knowledge of buddhism just like the one who called to kill the muslim.

Well, among the buddhists, there are anti homosexuls too. Thus the monks must sing to the tune of the followers otherwise, he will have no alms to get from the followers.

Monks in USA also anti homosexuals. As mentioned above, they have to dance with the political tone. But the Shen Yan did not say homosexual is a crime or evil.

In face, people should promote the text of Kinsey Report to let more people know about it. Of course, can continue to do more research from Kinsey Report.

@hylander - I was a perks member for 10 years from 2005. So I know how this site used to function. It used to be an excellent social networking source before some corporate entity took it over and started destroying it.

What doesn't work? Here's a preview.

Check who's on line at any time of the day or night. Then click on the country. Then find out how many are actually on line. Far fewer than the printed total.

Check on the average age of members. I checked members on line in four countries. Vietnam - 53 years. Singapore - approx. 50 years. Thailand - 46 years. Malaysia - approx 44 years. What? Can this be true? It certainly is! So where are all the younger Asians wo used to populate this site? Disappeared onto the apps which really work, I expect.

Check the Radar function. That's a joke. Fair enough, you need to be a perks member to access all profiles, but I got 20. It showed that between "0 kms" and "2.53 kms" from me were 14 members based in Thailand, 1 in Singapore, 1 in Afghanistan, 1 in The Philippines, 1 in London and 2 in China!! Given than 7 had not been online for more than 4 days, I defy anyone to prove that they were anywhere near me when I logged in.

Now check the Search function. I checked for guys from Taipei under 35 with the only condition that they did not smoke. Only 10 profiles appeared. Ten? Ten years ago the numbers would have been in the hundreds! But then only 3 of those profiles that popped up were actually under 35. One had not been online for 4 years, one for 3 years and one for 2 years. As a way to meet guys, this site is not merely out-of date, it is antediluvian.
38. 2019-07-09 21:00  
Oops, I forgot to addd something about photos. One of the guys allegedly near me has a photo uploaded in 2002! 2002!!!! I know it's quite common for guys on social networking sites to alter their ages a bit - but this is ridiculous. That member has a few friends. One uploaded two pics in 2006, a second in 2007 and a third in 2008. Another member had 10 photos uploaded between 2008 and 2011. No-one bothers to update this site. Be careful of the dinosaurs!
39. 2019-07-10 03:29  
"Incidentally, your mentioning the lack of a blacklist led me to do some research on this site. Do all you guys realise that it is massively out of date?"

wonderful, so that means i canNOT ever blacklist you at all sir just because this site happens to be so "OUTDATED" .. and why you have such a fuss over photos backing up to 2002 for? just like YOU stated at me earlier, remember what you said, honey? or has your age OUTDATED yo mind perhaps, sir? "But you can always AVERT your eyes and just not read what I write." .. so therefore, AVERT your eyes to whatever "OUTDATED" pics you see and move onto the next young one you find on here ;) i will tell you that i do find you a very hot daddy, but sometimes your bitchyness AVERTS me from saying anything nice to you .. so that is the word for today then, "AVERT" .. remember it and write it down, honey baby!
40. 2019-07-10 03:32  
oh i see what happens here, when you blacklist somebody you can no longer send them PRIVATE MESSAGES, but can still see their bullshit crap-a-dapps in the public forums, how lame indeed, i guess this site does happen to be ...... *drumroll please* ...... SO "OUTDATED", honey!!
41. 2019-07-10 11:14  
If you do not like what someone writes - as you keep telling us you do not like your family - why get yourself all worked up by actually reading those posts? I guess it's a bit like choosing to remain in the closet in one's late 40s. It becomes a compulsion. Must mean those posts you don't want to read are actually worth reading - LOL!
42. 2019-07-10 21:57  
yes just like reading what YOU write on here, sir .. you're one hot seXXXy daddy-O, but OH NO, you don't like nerdy geeky thangs like myself .. what a sham .. oops, i meant what a SHAME!
43. 2019-07-10 21:59  
ANYWAYS GOING BACK TO THE TOPIC? this monk is motherfucking STUPID! just like MOST ASIANS who don't like gays (notice i said MOST ASIANS this time around and NOT necessarily asians in general, for some wise old dude who didn't get that straight in his elderly fragiled mind).
44. 2019-07-11 00:08  
Now, now @osongbosong - no need to resort to name calling and outright rudeness. If you cannot argue a point rationally, best not to argue it at all. I'm sure you know that can get you thrown off this site.
45. 2019-07-11 13:00  
well if you want to ruffle someone's feathers, sir .. but fine, i see your points (unfortunately)
