Dr. Li-Ann Thio hates gays.
In 2007, as a member of Singaporean Parliament, Dr. Thio argued against repealing a statute that criminalized gay sex. In her arguments, she said, “You cannot make a human wrong a human right” and “Diversity is not a license for perversity.” She also likened anal sex to “shoving a straw up your nose to drink.” Today, gay sex in Singapore is still illegal.
Dr. Li-Ann Thio is also a law professor, who has been invited to teach a course at NYU this fall in–don’t snort so hard that that straw falls out of your nose–HUMAN RIGHTS LAW. NYU has said that Dr. Thio will add a “valuable contribution” to intellectual campus life. And Dr. Thio defended her own hiring by saying:
“I think certain Americans have to realise the fact that there are a diversity of views on the subject and it is not a settled matter; there is no universal norm and it is nothing short of moral imperialism to suggest there is.“
Oh, and fuck you very much.
Watch Dr. Thio’s arguments before Parliament on YouTube where she asserts that legalizing gay sex will “subvert social morality, the common good, and undermine our liberties.”
