Random question. Overheard two aunties talking at a hawker centre about this 377A and the convo went something like this.

A: ya eh good what why?

B: I not leh. if ah your son come home and say “mummy I have a boyfriend” how?

A: siao ah he only can date girl else how to give birth and have children

Confusion struck me for a minute. Can you support something but be against it when it comes to your own children? Is it really supportive then?

Or is it the whole I’m open to inter racial relationships but when it comes to my daughter I’m against it kinda thing?

Netizens’ comments

  • People can talk freely until it hits too close to home. There is even a survey that shows how many people claim to support compared to the number that actually support their loved ones.
  • Spot on. Theres the legal aspect and the societal aspect. The former is relatively easier to change, the latter is much much harder.
  • People want to appear inclusive and supportive, but not at the expense of their own comfort zone. It’s hypocritical, but better than being completely against it..I guess? A small step forward is a step nonetheless
