Laughing Stock

I was brought up in a family where girl and boys were treated the same. I had a brother and a sister, myself being the youngest of the three siblings. My sister was treated in fact more special than the 2 boys; she was the only one who was sent for piano lessons perhaps because my dad could only afford one kid learning piano.

In all other aspects, my sister was treated no differently. She went to MU , graduated with a first class honours in Maths, and obtained a scholarship to do master in the renowned East West center in Hawaii. She went on to become an actuary and worked in both private and public sectors in Singapore, and now retiring in Singapore because her children are all Singaporeans.

In those days, the 60s, some families did not send their girls to universities even when the girls had good results. One example was a cousin of mine. She had been accepted by a unversity but her father had refused to send her there. i remember my father made a special trip to Teluk Intan ( I tagged alone and that was my only visit to that town with the leaning tower) and tried to persuade his cousin to allow the daughter to go to university. In the end, after 3 days of talks, the father finally agreed to let the daughter go to MTC (Malaysian Teachers’ College) as a compromise. Her brother was more fortunate; being the son he was sent to Nanyang University to study and is a prominent businessman now.

In the old days, even in government service, men were paid more than women for similar  positions held and for similar jobs done. It was  in the 60s that finally, women were given the same pay and leave as their male counterparts, after many women leaders fought hard to get the same recognition.

Women today are recognised as equal to men, although each may have different roles to play,  thanks to the efforts of some of their pioneers in fighting for their rights.  As more and more people are educated overseas, where women emancipation movement has long taken roots, we are seeing equal status for women in more and more fields.

I myself treated my children equally regardless of their sex, like thousands of other Malaysians.

Emancipation of women is here to stay.

Alas, wait a minute! In Malaysia, even though I know that anything is possible, I have never envisaged that an “Obedient wives Club’  would be set up by certain women themselves.

In this age and time, wives are equal to husbands and how some  women can come out with this idea just baffles me. The aim of this club apparently wants to make wives more obedient/subservient, and it also plans to teach women be more sexually attractive so that husbands do not stray to the arms of the whores… As a husband, I wish to register my strongest protest here; the actions of these women is not only  demeaning to wives, but to most husbands as well!

These women have also missed an important point.

In matrimony, sexual prowess is not what holds a marriage together. It is mutual trust, respect, understanding and love that are the keys to a lasting marriage, not by asking either the wife or the husband to be obedient or subservient, or train them to be good in bed..

I just don’t know how obedient or subservient  these founder-members are , but one thing i know, they have already make Malaysia the laughing stock of the world again.

Malaysia Boleh!

    That segment of people associated to that Abraham Ali is as stupid as it comes. Who would think of this kind of dumb thing except them. And I cannot think of any such women who can be this fat stupid and dumb, except those linked to that stupid NGO.

    Its indeed sad and demeaning that we have such moronic people in our country and even that they came form the “Have” class of society. marriage is not for a wife to act out as a 1st class prostitute and sex should be “Making Love” rather than just sex. The meaning of such is that 2 persons come together to tie a bond of love and therefore act the act of love making thru out their life.
    No wonder some class of people are turning backwards towards the old society and we are already in the IT age and anything can be seen in the net. Why such a club? Is is becuz these people are left loveless becuz their men went to take in other wives? Dr Rohaya herself is 1 of 4 wives of her husband and so that means she ironically did not acted her part as being the 1st class prostitute? Sad….

    I wonder if the club provides whips,ropes and candles in case the other opposite mate doesn’t behave obedient enough.Very disgraceful and insult to Malaysians indeed.I would suggest to the club by bringing in all their siblings to be membership and provide free show to public ie sex demo,whipping,pulling hairs,slapping ect to demand obedience.

    In general sense…females are weaker sex and cannot do work physical work as good as males.
    On the other hand..females perform duties at home that many husbands consider those are duties from a loving wife…so she do all house keeping work with or without a maid…while watch live football in stadiums.
    My father treated all as equal…in educations….but come to work….salesmen or field work for men and teachers for women was his ideal plan.
    Men can fly around like bees….but females must be like flowers for bees to come looking for them….something that Anna learn from King Mongkut of Thailand.
    Me?….Education is most important and have no limits to my support whosoever is smart enough to reach the height he/she aims for.
    My daughters seems to want more and so they cost me more to help them have golden wings to fly.
    As for UMNO B hypocrites male and female politicians…they all should teach their children how to fly kites and practice war games.

    I mean female does all house-hold chores and male go watch live football games..in my second sentence.
    And may I report…..Hannah Yeoh married and Indian and they have a child born recently.
    They went to register her birth certificate and put “Malaysian” as her race and was rejected.
    It must be Chinese …Malay …Indian…Bugis…Bangali….etc etc etc.
    Cannot “lian lian ” too.
    They argued…she is neither Indian nor Chinese…and trully …..a Malaysian.
    Argument not accepted.
    They plan to write to Najib…what is his “IMalaysia” all about?
    How to treat 4 wives…all equal?
    Najib plenty smart….one wife only and have strings of love affairs…like changing clothes everyday.
    And my I add…if all strictly follow equalities…..Doc’s businesses in attending men and women problems will be reduced drastically…cannot be as rich as he is now.

    I am ashamed with that club.
    A journey of a wife in a marriage is not just sex slave to the husband.

    I wonder what next they r upto!

    Malaysia is rich in diversity, it is never disappointing in terms of Opera shows, one after another. On the other hand, no one seems to care about the basic living conditions such as rise in energy price. People who came out with idea of such are people who are well fed, well clothed and have nothing more meaningful to do and Malaysia are full of them. My wife and my daughter feel so disgusted with the shallow thinking of these people. My daughter was in a flight and there was this Ah Mo sitting next to her with a Malaysian newspaper with this news, and this Ah Mo turned and asked his friend, next to him across the aisle to change their travel plan to stay longer in Malaysia to find themselves Malaysian women who are ‘obedient’ and do anything they want. How humiliating it can be a any Malaysian.

    The whole idea is to keep their womenfolk(and men too) opiated in religion and sex, lots of sex to keep them happy, hunky, dandy and gay. Yah, make the home a whore of a place, let their maids participate too, perhaps! When all is done, just leave politics to those who know best, and did Perak Mufti and Ibrahim Bulat say – umno/BN?

    Over half a century of SICKO perverts in umno/BN running the country, no wonder this country is in a mess!

    My god!!, how this stone-age mentality, screwball woman obtained her so called “doctered” degree??????.
    This Rohaya doctor is obviously a follower of Ibrahim Ali since she adopts Ibrahim’s philosophy that a wife must satisfy her husband at any time and anywhere. However looking at this female doctor’s appearance, I can understand why her husband has taken 3 other wives. And she obviously cannot walk the talk since she cannot fully satisfy her husband all by herself.

    I once asked a friend during our usual breakfast meet why he still buy mainstream newspapers. His answer: “Because it got a lot of jokes”. So you are right, even Malaysians want to have a laugh or two and the only way is to read news generated by morons and political jokers.
