According To The Malaysian Government, All My Sons Are Gay

Thank you, dear government of Malaysia, for giving me a handy list that I can check off in order to know if my sons are gay. I have looked at this list, and now I have discovered that my sons are gay, my husband-gay, my father was also gay and every other man in the world, totally gay.
