"most homosexuals...choose certain occupations like hairdressing, fashion designing and modelling."

An article in the Sri Lankan newspaper, The Island, has caused an uproar in the LGBT community. At first glance, you may think the stereotyping of homosexuality, although wrong, is no major cause for concern. However, take into consideration the LGBT community's delicate balance between freedom and imprisonment (homosexual acts are punishable by law, but the law has not been enforced for decades), and you will realize just how every little bit of propaganda is fuel for a fire that may start burning at any moment.
