Parents, teachers need to be aware of LGBT tendencies
KLANG: Parents and teachers need to be educated on the early signs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) tendencies among youths.
This is to prevent youngsters from experimenting and making a choice of this unnatural practice as a lifestyle later on.
Deputy Education Minister Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi said it was important for parents to be aware and understand this wayward practice.
Once parents became aware and understood these tendencies, they would be able to take the necessary steps to help their children deal with it.
"We cannot deny the fact that Malaysian parents are still unable to talk to their children about LGBT.
"This is why seminars are important to shed light on LGBT practices as this lifestyle is gaining momentum in Malaysia," he said after launching a parenting seminar on LGBT here, yesterday.
He said there were segments of society which were now more open to the practice and were fighting for LGBT's rights, claiming that this group had rights as they work and contribute to society.
"They are talking about human rights but the problem with human rights, is that it does not take into consideration religious sensitivities and prohibitions," he said.
