In Singapore: logic or anti-gay hatred?

Singapore Member of Parliament and Law Professor Thio Li-ann said the following on Tuesday:
"Anal-penetrative sex is inherently damaging to the body and a misuse of organs, like shoving a straw up your nose to drink. The anus is designed to expel waste; when something is forcibly inserted into it, the muscles contract and cause tearing; fecal waste, viruses carried by sperm and blood thus congregate, with adverse health implications like ‘gay bowel syndrome’, anal cancer. ‘Acts of gross indecency’ under 377A also covers unhygienic practices like “rimming” where the mouth comes into contact with the anus.”
She then proceeds to vote for repealing a law (for heterosexuals only) that prohibited to engage in oral and anal sex.
Makes sense, doesn't it?
