The sword of damacles continues to dangle over politically divisive issues such as homosexuality and 377A in Singapore. Singaporeans and their government will need to try and reign in individuals from the political fringes, whether left or right, to avoid a potential Orlando Shooting from taking place here.

Pink Dot VS Wearwhite – Learning to live with democratic chaos

We can deduce that the two camps are not going to compromise anytime soon, but what does this mean for Singaporeans? It means that first, we will be seeing movements and counter-movements from both LGBTIQ and conservative communities for some years to come; second, Singapore will come under intense media scrutiny, particularly from an international media that is sympathetic to LGBTIQ causes; and third, Singaporeans will have to live with the messy debates, name-calling and polarised politics that have come to characterise similar LGBTIQ movements in other countries.
