Justice Mohd Hishamudin Mohd Yunus said:
“A person’s dress, attire or article of clothing are a form of expression, which in our view is guaranteed under Article 10 (freedom of expression)” – The Star.
Now I wonder, if it is legal to cross-dress, then will it one day be legal to cross-dress to school in Malaysia?
Since punishing transgenders for cross-dressing contravenes freedom of expression, will it be okay for a school boy to wear a female’s uniform to school or vice versa?
Logically, if cross-dressing is ruled as a part of the transgenders’ freedom of expression, then surely others including students have that rights too, right?
Imagine what will happens if one day a student cross-dress to school and says that it is his or her rights to cross-dress?
