直人撐同志/無分攣直 2008年5月

 

雖然世界衛生組織於1990年已將同性戀在精神病名冊除名,但世界各地的同性戀者依然遭受不同程度的迫害。超過八十多個國家,同性戀仍然是非法行 為,甚至會被判死刑。性傾向歧視條例在香港遲遲未能立法,針對性傾向的歧視行為無處不在,去年鏗鏘集「同志‧戀人」紀錄片被廣管局發出「強烈勸喻」,被要 求加入所謂「持平」的反對聲音,便是最明顯的例子。政府新近修訂的家暴條例,保障同居異性關係,卻拒絕保障同居同性關係,更是再一次提醒我們,必須正視香 港社會的恐同問題。

恐同症(homophobia)泛指針對同性戀行為及同性戀者的非理性恐懼、厭惡和憎恨,以及源於以上情緒所作出的歧視和暴力行為。異性戀霸權主宰 了我們社會文化的結構,在法律、教育、宗教、科學等不同制度的滲透和影響下,我們很容易認為異性戀比較合乎自然和優越,同性戀則為不正常,即使口中不斷強 調平等、開明、包容,心底裡依然存在不同程度的恐同意識,這種情況尤以直人為甚。

必須強調,直人和同志不過是一種虛擬、含糊、方便大眾識別的分類。我們的情慾絕非可以異同二分,而是同中有異,異中有同,只要不強制壓抑,情慾取向 更會因時而變。恐同症橫行肆虐,糟殃的不僅是同性戀者、雙性戀者、跨性別人士,也不止於不被主流認可情慾身份的性小眾,同受壓迫的包括被主流認可情慾身份 的直人:必須壓抑多元情慾的發展,時刻提防自己變攣,以至「看不見」近在身邊的同志,不自覺成為了打壓性多元的同謀幫兇。在這種意義下,反恐同不單是同志 的任務,也是直人的任務,甚至更應該由直人牽頭帶領。直人撐同志,即是撐自己,在反抗性別壓迫,支持開拓多元情慾空間的陣線上,我們無分攣直。因此,我們 呼籲大家──尤其是直人──參與今年國際不再恐同日遊行。反恐同,豈能讓同志獨挑大樑。我們的訴求:

一、正視我們心底潛在的戀同和恐同傾向
二、尊重不同情慾取向,保障性小眾應有權利
三、盡快推動性傾向歧視立法

擴大同運宣言 2008年12月

同志有時彷彿很遙遠,又彷彿很透明。我們聽過幾多這樣的 故事:與某位朋友相識多年,過了很久你才發現對方原來一直是同志。在朋友同事之中,在親戚街坊之間,同志其實無處不在。無論是街頭巷尾,抑或哪一個城市的 角落,都隱藏著同志的身影,都傳來同志的腳步聲。歧視的存在,出櫃的困難,卻令我們看見的比真實的少。我們難以看見同志,因此也難以看見同志面對的不公平 處境,伴隨著的,是我們難以看見性別身份的多元,難以看見情慾流動的可能。 為解除過往的矇昧和蔽塞,我們是時候睜開雙眼,正視生活在我們身邊的同志親友,正視性別身份的多元,正視情慾流動的可能。為了這些關乎社會公義和切身福祉的目標,同志運動亟需擴大。從今以後,同志運動不再只是一小撮人為自身的基本權利默默努力,更是我們所有人為追求美好生活而落實在具體生活處境的改變;同志不再是一個外於我們自身的議題,同志就在我們當中,同志就是我們! 要追求平等公義的社會,必須正面肯定同性戀、雙性戀、跨 性別社群,以至其他違反主流性彆氣質的性別身份;要建立理想的人格,必須認真審視我們的性別身份建構,洞察既有情慾模式的限制和解放的可能。同志運動需要 我們,我們需要同志運動。同志運動將會改變我們的視野,改變我們的世界,同志將會昂首邁步,走上擁擠的大街小道,在學校,在教堂,在政府總部,插上飄揚的 眾色彩虹旗幟。 就此,讓我們一起宣告: 一、為了追求理想社會和美好生活,我們不論性別、不論性傾向選擇,都將義無反顧地投入同志運動。 二、我們不會姑息任何歧視同志的言行,必將迎頭痛擊。 三、性別不只是男女、性傾向不只是同異,在任何公共決策及人際溝通,我們都必須加入其他性別及性傾向的考慮。 四、同志值得驕傲,我們為同志感到自豪。更為全民的同志運動義不容辭。

Straight FOR Homo / No differentiation between straight and homo

Although the World Health Organisation has removed homosexuality from their list of mental disorder since 1990, homosexuals are still being persecuted everywhere of the world. Homosexuality is still illegal in over 80 countries. Some of them even punish this sexual minority with death penalty. The Sexual Orientation Discrimination Ordinance in Hong Kong is not yet legislated even though the issue was raised and discussed for long. The inefficiency of legislation makes different sexual minorities being discriminated everywhere. Last year, a documentary on homosexual lovers shown in the “Hong Kong Connection”, a Radio Television Hong Kong programme, was “strongly advised” by the Broadcasting Authority to put in some “balancing” voices from the opposing parties. The government has just revised the Domestic Violence Ordinance to protect heterosexual domestic partnership. At the same time, it rejected to protect homosexual domestic partnership. These two examples are just reminding us the fact that we should confront the problem of homophobia in our society.

Homophobia generally means irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality and homosexuals. The hegemony of heterosexuality dominates the structure of our social culture. Under the influences of legal, education, religion and science systems, we might easily agree that heterosexuality is comparatively more natural and superior while homosexuality is abnormal. Although we verbally said we are equal, liberal and tolerant, many of us, especially with the identity of straight, are still having different levels of homophobic consciousness.

We must emphasize that straight and homo are only two terminologies for fictitious and ambiguous categorisation. Instead of being differentiated between homosexuality and heterosexuality, our sexual passion actually differs to time. Homophobia does not only concern the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other sexual minorities, but also straight people who are unconsciously oppressed by sexual identification. The straight have to suppress their potential diverse desires, constrain theirselves from being homosexual, and even treat the presence of homo as absence.. Under this consciousness, anti-homophobia is a mission to the homo with the straight together, and this mission should be even led by the straight. When the straight support the sexual minorities, the straight support theirselves. In the front of fighting gender oppression and supporting diverse sexual desire, we have no differentiation. We sincerely appeal to everyone, especially the straights, to join the march of the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) this year. Our requests are,

1. To confront our potential love and fear of homosexuality
2. To respect to different sexual orientations and protect the rights of sexual minorities
3. To urge the legislation of sexual orientation discrimination
