The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) yesterday deleted an article on the Japanese-language version of its Web site that denounced LGBT people for “perversion,” after the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) accused it of homophobia.

The article was originally published by the KMT on Oct. 31. An LGBT advocate identified as “Okinafa Chen” posted a screen grab of it on Facebook one week later with a translation and no comment.

Chen’s translation of the post read: “While homosexuals are naturally occurring, making laws for him [sic] is perversion, making husbands out of women and brides of men is extremely perverted, making laws for this perverted thing is even more perverted.”

“The DDP wants to make Taiwan a perverted country, we are not perverts, we do not want to be made into perverts, we will not stand for this and fuck you DPP,” it read.
