A Singaporean guy, Imran, was criticised widely across social media for uploading a video showing himself making fun of and disrespecting the LGBTQ+ community in Singapore, onto his YouTube channel AimRun.
He was seen in the video going to the PinkDot event that was held on 18 June, interviewing attendees and mocking their gender pronouns.
Among his many interactions with the people there, he asked a couple of girls about their gender pronouns, before asking them if it was okay for him to “identify as a she/her”.
The girls then told him there’s nothing wrong with it, and he then followed up by asking them if it’s okay for him to identify as a “47-year-old”.
The girls then said if it makes him happy then there’s nothing wrong with it.
Undeterred, he then asked them if it’s okay if he identifies as a “Chinese”, the girls then told him that it’s basic courtesy to respect what others “identify as”.
Among his other interviews in the video, he was seen speaking to another girl arguing against identifying as anything other than their genders.
He said that “gender is allocated when you are born”.
As the video goes on, he interviewed another man under the pretext of “wanting to learn” but then proceeds to mock their message in the video.
