‘BORN THIS WAY’ get censored by Malaysia for dumb reasons

I just read an article on Guardian.co.uk saying that Malaysia Radio censored Born This Way, claiming that it’s a pro-gay song. Wait… they might be delusional, even if it’s pro-gay, why they don’t treat this song positively?

For me, it’s not really pro-gay, it’s like everybody, no matter you are idiot or talented, but in this life you should let yourself shine like a star, get the most out of your life! I’m not bothered by the pro-gay part of the lyrics, but this is not the excuse for not broadcasting this song.

Religion? Oh please don’t put Religion¬† into the equation. This song maybe pro-gay (I said MAYBE), but it’s definitely pro-religion, inside the lyric there is one sentence, right there:

I’m beautiful in my way, cause god makes no mistake’

Hey! She praised Jesus, Buddha and Allah and other deities I haven’t write down, is there anything wrong?

And then, there are more sentences that are pretty encouraging, such as

Don’t hide yourself in regret, Just love yourself and you’re set

Come on… she is just like NameWee, you guys (Malaysia Government and Radio Networks) have to learn how to extract the ‘synopsis’ and the ‘positiveness’ in a song! Why you guys just love to pick off the pro-gay stuffs? There is not even a single swearing!

I can say this song is encouraging people to do whatever they want, it can be start a new company, submit a demo to record label and pwn other classmates in your school! Use Malaysia English: THINK POSITIVE LAH!
