The gay community want a repeal of 377A saying that the law is not enforced, is not enough, it has to be discarded. What is next on the gay agenda if or when 377A is repealed is same-sex marriage, and thereafter adoption of children. Some say it is a slippery slope argument, others say it is a natural evolution of an englightened society where everyone has the right to get married and then have children, including gays. The conservatives in Singapore have largely remained silent on this, apart from a few churches. They might not remain silent for long if the anger in France is a barometer of increasing right wing pressure as a reaction to the gay lobby.
