GAY S’POREAN: I HATE MY LIFE IN S’PORE, DR CHEE IS MY ONLY HOPE, PAP HAS NO BALLS

I am a 35 year old man living in Singapore. I am a gay man living in this country. I may love my country but my country does not love me back. Whenever I go out shopping for groceries at the wet market or supermarket with my partner, we attract stares from others like we are animals on exhibit. When I hold my husband's hands in public, people give us the death stare like we are murderers of their family members. I have given up on the PAP to give me equality and basic respect in my own country. Dr Chee is the only politician in Singapore who can change all these injustice.

MOTHER: IS IT NORMAL FOR ME TO BE NAKED IN FRONT OF MY SONS?

My two boys are 5 and 8. I still allow them to see me naked while I am bathing or changing clothes. The reason that I did not stop them is I don't feel the need to 'hide'. Wouldn't it make them feel more curious to know about mummy's body or maybe other girl's body in the future if I keep hiding from them. I tot maybe if they see it frequently, it will become 'nothing' in their eyes so their mind will not get too excited or curious about women's body when they grow up. I don't want my sons to grow up being to curious about sex and want them to treat it as a normal part of themselves.

AH CHYE COFFEE STALL: GOOD COFFEE SERVED WITH SINCERE HONESTY

I paid for our kopi and toast breakfast at Ah Chye coffee with a $50 note and absentmindedly walked off without collecting the change. Realising this only a few days later, I had little hope they would remember about the incident but decided to speak to them about it anyway. To my pleasant surprise, they not only remembered that I had left without collecting the change, but returned the money in a neatly folded plastic bag labelled with the amount of change.

OPPOSITION VOTERS STOP BEING PASSIVE & VOLUNTEER NOW TO ENSURE CHANGE

After the election results, opposition supporters were quick to blame the 60.1% for giving the PAP such a large majority in parliament and the mandate for unpopular and unwanted policies like the Population White Paper. Rather than blame the 60.1% for the results, many of the 39.9% of opposition voters should also blame themselves for doing nothing except voting against the PAP. Yes, you guys voted against the PAP. But that is not enough if you want real democratic progress.

S’POREANS SHOULD BE BRAVE LIKE AUSTRALIANS, DARE TO CHANGE EVERY ELECTION

Different parties have different abilities and different things to offer, how I wish Singaporeans were like Australians and are daring to change the political parties in their countries every 5 years because a political party that have been governing too long are like soiled diaper, full of shitsss and becomes stagnant. The first step to improve our country is by being brave enough for change and give others the chance to govern.

GOH MENG SENG: REAL CHANGE CAN ONLY COME WITH ROBUST DEBATE IN PARLIAMENT

If you want REAL CHANGE, then you should support and vote in people who are mind changers, opinion leaders and advocates of policy changes. No amount of "hard work" or "slogging and pain" on the ground, knocking doors and kissing babies, could effect REAL Change. REAL Change can only happen if and only if, voters' mindset has been influenced by strong reasoning in political discourse that would initiate permanent change.

CHANGE AND THE SINGAPOREAN DNA

In the commentary, Devadas lists the gripes Singaporeans have had in recent years – the 2013 Population White Paper, urban flooding, corruption cases of high-profile public servants and Government’s intention to regulate the internet – and selectively quoting from historical events, suggests that Singaporeans are survivors, and so must adapt to changing circumstances.
