YET ANOTHER PERSON BANNED FROM TRAVELLING, INVESTIGATED FOR ATTENDING VIGIL

Filmmaker Jason Soo is yet another person to be slapped with a travel restriction as the police are investigating him for taking part in a candlelight vigil for a death penalty inmate. "It's an example of how civil rights in this country are being gradually stripped away, inch by inch, little by little, until one day, we realize that the only rights we have left is the right to obey."

WOMAN TOLD SHE HAS NO RIGHTS TO USE HANDICAP TOILET AS SHE'S NOT HANDICAPPED

A reader shared about a woman who was accused of having no rights to use the handicap toilet. She went into the handicap toilet as she was pushing a stroller and could not get into the normal cubicle. A cleaner and supervisor at CompassOne then approached the toilet and started knocking to check if there was anyone inside. The woman said they could not hear her answer as they were talking loudly among themselves. They soon opened the door, leaving her exposed without her pants. She complained to the management but received a letter telling her she has no rights to use the handicap toilet as she is not handicapped. She has since reported this to the police.

NG ENG HEN: TERREX ISSUE - OUR LAWFUL RIGHTS

Under ASEAN’s Treaty of Amity and Co-operation, signatories pledge “to promote regional peace and stability through abiding respect for justice and the rule of law”.

UNFAIR THAT WOMEN WANT EQUAL RIGHTS BUT AREN'T REQUIRED TO SERVE NS

While the recently released Institute of Policy Studies survey reveals ambivalence over whether National Service (NS) should be obligatory for women, my stand on the matter is unequivocal: Yes, it should. In a TODAY commentary last week, Mr Ho Shu Huang made an eloquent case for increasing efforts to accommodate volunteerism but, again, the manifest inequality embedded in the suggestion is that women should have a choice while men don’t — which I believe to be wrong on a number of levels. It has long irked me that NS should be a “male-only” affair: A sacred institution to be preserved, unquestioned like Catholic priesthood.

Pedophiles Want Same Rights As Homosexuals

Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.
Critics of the homosexual lifestyle have long claimed that once it became acceptable to identify homosexuality as simply an “alternative lifestyle” or sexual orientation, logically nothing would be off limits. “Gay” advocates have taken offense at such a position insisting this would never happen. However, psychiatrists are now beginning to advocate redefining pedophilia in the same way homosexuality was redefined several years ago.
