Thanks to fellow Clearthought-blogger Leng Hiong, angry doc now has a way to take over the Singapore Medical Association.
But seriously, folks...
angry doc doesn't know if their fears will become true, but he will be watching. It will be interesting to see how AWARE will dress a homophobic agenda as something that promotes "Gender Equality for All".
When angry doc started this blog, he made a conscious decision to not 'show his politics' here, but that came to an end when he decided to rebut a letter to the ST Forum that he believed was misrepresenting medical science - he did not have a horse in the race himself when it came to the issue of LBGTQ rights, but the tactics employed by the anti-gay lobby bugged him at an intellectual level.
But things have happened in angry doc's life since then that makes him now consider the issue of LBGTQ rights as something that concerns him personally, and he is now willing to use the meagre influence of his blog to raise awareness on it and to champion it, even when the context of the topic at hand is not something strictly related to science or medicine.
Even if it will cost him eventually. Even if it will hurt him.
Because if it's not going to be about love in the end, then what's the whole point?
