NUS STUDENT: WHY WE ASKED ASS WEBSITE TO TAKE DOWN THE KENT RIDGE HALL GAMES ARTICLE

To give you readers some context, Kent Ridge Hall Dating game, affectionately known to kent ridgeans by the acronym KRDG (which also is our hashtag on instagram- you can go check it out to see the myriad of beautiful door decorations over the years), is a game played over a month, after the freshmen welcome orientation camp. What happens is that each freshman will get to "chase" a senior to get him or her to say Yes for "date night". "Date night" is a night organized by the Freshmen Welcome Orientation Committee, a committee in Kent Ridge Hall which puts in a lot of effort to make sure freshmen integrate well into the KR community. On "date night", the whole hall will go out together for a movie night, with each freshman going along with their senior dates. Each pair will also dress up in sync, according to the theme. It's always a fun night out for the entire hall. Therefore, the reason why there has been a surge of pleas to take the article down is not because we support censorship, want to stamp out freedom of speech or because we are ashamed of KRDG. It is because we feel unfair- that a game which has been played over the years, a game which has forged so many good friendships for us, a game which has brought so many people together, was painted in such a tainted and distasteful light.
