Academics petition court to criminalize homosexual acts in Indonesia

A group of 12 academics want homosexual acts to be punishable by 5 years in jail

Although the wave of anti-LGBT feelings that gripped Indonesia earlier this year has largely subsided, a group of academics from the group Aliansi Cinta Keluarga (Family Love Alliance) are determined to criminalize same-sex sex acts by petitioning the country’s highest court.

The group approached Indonesia’s Constitutional Court with three expert witnesses who denounced homosexuality as immoral and against the country’s founding principles.

A Dr Dewi Inong asked the judges: “Are relations through the rectum a part of civilized humanity? It is a dirty thing and [now] we must recognize it as a human right. Is that normal?" according to news site Detik.

Inong also blamed homosexual acts for HIV and other sexual transmitted diseases.

Despite some very worrying comments made by the government against Indonesia’s LGBT, same-sex relations remain legal in the country, unlike neighbouring Singapore and Malaysia.

I can't say relations through the vagina where pee and periods come out seem any more sanitary. That aside why do they always seem to focus on male gay sex in these hearings but not lesbians.

is it going up THEIR rectum? No. So what business is it of theirs?
also... no straight couples have anal sex, do they?
Experts, my ass!

"Dr Dewi Inong asked the judges:... Is that normal?"

Maybe the doc should give it a try. He might change his mind!

Dr Dewi Inong is actually female. And a vile one.

This has been going on far too long, and it is disappointing and alarming that our president (Joko Widodo) hasn't said a word about this.

The UN should weigh in on this attempt at violations of human rights. Negative tourist publicity, boycotts and embargoes for these dudes living in the 18th century.

The fact that Indonesia voted against the UN resolution on anti-gay bias (September 2014) proves that the country (or its representatives anyway - in both local and international forums) does not care about the LGBTQ community.

So, we're fucked.

Ignorance ignorance ignorance. #1 take note:

And #3 assuming Dr Dewi Inong is male. Tut tut tut.

Let people comment. Let them show their ignorance :)

As usual, the anti- LGBT crowd goes straight to the anus. If the argument were simply about 2 people loving each other, they wouldn't stand a chance. But they want to push that "dirty" button. Of this I can assure you, more than one of those "academics" has had some man-on-man action.

Well, if these BRILLIANT nimrods really lock up ALL of the gays in Indonesia, they will have to build a LOT of prisons, since there are millions of gays in Indonesia and I would be willing to bet that at least one of the 12 nimrods is a closet case himself.

I think this applies cross culturally. These people just can't stop thinking about anal sex.
Homophobes should consider a little self-reflection, suggests a new study finding those individuals who are most hostile toward gays and hold strong anti-gay views may themselves have same-sex desires, albeit undercover ones.
The prejudice of homophobia may also stem from authoritarian parents, particularly those with homophobic views as well, the researchers added.
"This study shows that if you are feeling that kind of visceral reaction to an out-group, ask yourself, 'Why?'" co-author Richard Ryan, a professor of psychology at the University of Rochester, said in a statement. "Those intense emotions should serve as a call to self-reflection."
The research, published in the April 2012 issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, reveals the nuances of prejudices like homophobia, which can ultimately have dire consequences
