A note to PT Foundation

I am certainly irk at such gesture by a well established organization.

Two days ago, after I posted the Ash Stymest post, this organization came into my blog and posted a comment.

I love it when people post comments on my blog. I even love it if it was a lengthy comment instead of a “Hi, I am just dropping by, keep it up” kinda comment. I mean, I feel very well appreciated when people actually drops a comment and actually tells you what they think about the post that I wrote.

So, not only this organization did not comment about Ash Stymest, it was clearly a copy and paste job across any other gay blogs out there. In another word, spam.

Given by the English that they used, it was a very well written ‘comment’ by itself. I do not suspect anyone disguising as them because of the origin of the said ‘comment’ and the purpose of the said comment.

However, I was disgusted that Pink Triangle Foundation (PT Foundation) had not had paid attention when they decided to post that ‘comment’. Anyone could have just Google’d “Gay Boy Malaysia” or something and then just spam post comments.

Heres the thing that I want point out. Firstly, I have been to your center, and I had not had a good experience.

I was questioned and treated as if I am a criminal. Being stared at, being judged by the prejudice ‘volunteer’ workers. While the scare tactic could have work on other less intelligent beings, I hate it when people use it on me. I am after-all a major in Psychology.

Your place is dark, it make me and my boy uneasy. The waiting room makes people feel uneasy, the constant stare from those “I am so going to get in your pants” type of people at some anonymous HIV test center is wrong. Seriously.

I have emailed you regarding my concerns, yet there was no reply from you. I have called, only to be answered by “I don’t know.” If this is the way that I am going to be shoved around, it is not surprising that people are actually avoiding being tested than to endure the kind of torment from you people.

    Hate those spams to our blog. Anyway, I have no experience in PT Foundation, but based on what you have mentioned, they should provide a more comfy gesture/environment to encourage people to get counsel from them.
