In one of the most ridiculous stories we have seen since a while, the mayor of a major Indonesian city has come out claiming that instant noodles and baby formula make people gay.
Tangerang Mayor Arief R Wismansyah made a number of bizarre statements while speaking at a pregnancy seminar.
He said: “To create Indonesian children that are healthy, smart and competitive, the most important thing is, from the beginning to provide them adequate nutrition, especially breastfeeding.”
He blamed busy parents for resorting to things like canned formula and instant noodles to feed their children.
The mayor comes to the conclusion that because of these supposed short cuts “it’s no wonder there are more LGBT.”
He continued sayingL “Allah created the creatures of his right pair, Adam and Eve, not Adam and Asep.”
These comments have come after another Indonesian politician, Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu, compared LGBT rights to war.
Ryacudu said: “[The LGBT movement] is dangerous as we can’t see who our foes are, but out of the blue everyone is brainwashed—now the (LGBT) community is demanding more freedom, it really is a threat.”
