17 year COE High: Biker boy analyses what next

My heart sank when I heard about the latest certificate of entitlement (COE) price for motorcycles - $2,704 - and the highest for 17 years. That's a 36 per cent rise compared with January's first bidding quota premium of $1,989. Naturally, there were many biker voices on social media calling the increase painful and unfair.

But today I just felt disgusted by the action of this guy. I wonder if i have homophobia?

“Omg, that cca is so gay!" I cringed when I heard that in school today. A single line, simple, yet encapsulating of certain disturbing points of view. I needn't quote statistics of our nation's GDP. It's obvious that we're progressing with no signs of slowing down. Yet, how far is this true with regards to the maturity of thoughts and actions of our people?
