In an impassioned speech presented in Parliament on 23 October, NMP Professor Thio Li-Ann stated that gays can change. Homosexuality, she claimed, is likely caused by “a distant father, overbearing mother and sexual abuse by a family friend.” While she lauded the removal of S377 of the penal code and is personally looking forward to a round of anal sex with both men and women soon, she believes that men who want only gay sex deserve either jail under S377A or help. “While difficult, change is possible and a compassionate society would help those wanting to fulfill their heterosexual potential.” The professor has therefore started a web page under the NUS Law School’s for gay people to sign up for a session of sex with her and fulfill that potential. “There is hope,” she stated in her speech. The web page contains a list of different types of sex that gays will be allowed to have with her once the penal code amendments are passed, including oral sex, anal sex, and traditional vaginal-penile sex. The hope is that with the repealed S377, she will have more types of sex to offer in order to convert gays into straights. This, she believes, will help build a compassionate society.
