Repeal S377A -- It's not just a gay thing, it's about equality

What is Section 377A?

What is the Singapore Government's stance on whether to repeal Section 377A? (reference: TODAY Online)

"... anal and oral sex will no longer be barred between consenting heterosexuals behind closed doors, but the Government is not budging on its ban of such acts by homosexual men under Section 377A.

The Law Society had recommended this section be repealed but, the Ministry of Home Affairs said, the majority of feedback called for its retention.

'MHA recognises that we are generally a conservative society and that we should let the situation evolve,' said MHA"

Hmm... All are equal but some are more equal?
