Why do Singaporean women complain about gender equality
I hv a seen a few videos in Tik Tok and other subreddits and etc, where SG woman complain about gender inequality and discrimination of woman in SG.
The topic of Gender inequality always revolves around woman even outside of the internet.
Yeah it’s great being a man compared to woman is in SG, the fact that as a man u hv to be treated like a mule for two years by NS.
The woman’s charter in Singapore, and prenups not being enforceable basically makes marriage a blind man’s gamble for men.
Spousal maintenance can be given to a woman for whatever reason, a man can only ask for spousal maintenance if he is basically handicapped and even that isn’t definite.
Man also have the privilege of enjoying of corporal punishment, men and boys can be canned in prison or school, but not woman or girls. Girls punishment in schools is that they get talked to
Woman in SG also have woman specific protection laws, and woman in SG or woman in general get less sentencing and might not even get indicted as opposed to their male counterpart .
Oh the horror and misery of being a woman…
There are more ways Singaporean men are “privileged”, but I won’t make this a 1000 word essay. Singaporean woman complaining how hard it is to be a woman just makes them seem like a spoiled whinny child.
- Privilege is often invisible to those who have it. Just like how people in first world countries complain more than those in third world countries even though they are more privileged.
- No idea. But I hate it when there are scholarships and events that are *women-only*.
I understand the need for feminism in third world countries ( India , Middle east ) but not in Singapore. Reason being , women in this country have 2 years of advantage over men , but yet women complain about wage/salary gap.
I rather have a society where everyone is measured based on your competence and not your gender/race/religion.
- Make them serve ns since they want equality so much
