Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

Mulling Over Something ... June 25, 2008

Women Are A Special Species - with a title like that you'd most certainly stop to read, well at least I did.

Well you see the owner of this piece is a guy :) and a Kopite at that (eeks!) so I figured let's see what he has to say. I mean not that I expected a ballad on the virtues of women. Anyways having read the piece and laughed at the comedy of the sister and brother, the serious anal bit of me kicked in.

No offense to Life's Like That ya ... this is typical .ani on some tangent train of thought.

I noted that the time of this discourse was 11am in the morning. It was bright, it was a public busy place. So I didn't get too riled up *eheheh* and I do tend to get riled up these days.

Now you if you'd done what I'd naturally do is to go read the piece, you'd be thinking what could possible be a reason for .ani to go all preachy - ahahha ok ok LLT is off the hook - he was reporting the incident.

What .ani has done is changed certain facts around and wondered in that instance would brother have upped himself and headed out to where sister was.

What I am trying to say is what if it was 11pm and not 11am. The whole scene changes now don't it. Be it Bangsar, or Hartamas or Chow Kit - the circumstances are now a whole different ball game.

This is the sister (presumably on her own) , it's 11pm, there's a flat tyre to be reckoned with. If you have any beans between them ears, you'd have guessed where I am heading to. We don't exactly live in Utopia here where everything is safe and perfect.

Given that in Kelantan this was the highlight of the day ... No Ban On Lipstick and High Heels which is great news I suppose ... I mean which girl doesn't like her lippy and heels?? But do take a moment to read para 5. In the morning when I was driving and listening to the news snippets on Mix.fm - the context of the report said that the ban on these 2 items was to prevent rape.

I guffawed so hard I swear I nearly peed on my pants (oops too much info!) ... I was like excuse me Mr. Religious Zealot - WTF are you trying to say here?

It gets my goat (eh wait a sec I don't own a goat!) every time I see this equation Rape=Woman's Fault - who died and made this the only reason rape statistics are on the rise in this country.

Did any of you read The Star over the weekend? Remand Prisons Allege Sexual Abuse By Cops - mind you these are the same people we are supposed to head to in the event of a rape. I'd not be surprised if the victim if still alive (some rapists are so conscientious they don't want their victim to suffer a lifetime of horror they just kill her - end of misery and therapy bills) ends up having to give these sick bastards a demonstration of how she was raped. I think we've all heard stories!

But seriously ... I keep wondering what is happening to the world today. The other day I had a friend of mine who is an Indian national with his UK HSMP currently stationed in Saudi Arabia ask me what the hell is wrong with us - he was refering to the the plea by the defence counsel of a father charged with raping his own daughter. The leniency plea was for the fact that every time he raped his own daughter he used a condom.

OH FER FOOK SAKES!!!!!! Does that change the fact you fooking bloody raped her over a period of time??? I forget what the bloody judgement was in the end but I think some snide remark was passed by the presiding judge - well thank heavens that much happened.

I really worry every single time I read one of this self righteous pricks and amazingly enough prick-ettes who come up with their illogical reasons for the increasing rape. Why always pick on the woman??

What was the last brouhaha? School girls' uniforms entice men to rape them. That got me super pissed off. If the damn prick can't keep his testosterone in check and his lust in check ... any fooking thing that looks like it's endowed with a vagina is so going to get raped!

Can we please in future wrap all female animals? Imagine the sanctity of this country held in check because not only are the women and female children hidden under layers of cloth and dying in the sweltering humidity, but all cows, nanny goats, bitches, ducks ... you get the picture - wrap them all up ... let no form of vagina be seen by any man for his lust might overcome him and he may then turn to raping animals instead because all the girls are so covered up.

GOD! If my information serves me correctly, there are also high rape cases anywhere and everywhere ... be you stark naked or hidden under some burkha cursing the day you were born a woman.

Another pet peeve of mine is the still practised female circumcision ... ok am no religious know-it-all, but I think we can all surmise here that the whole barbaric act is nothing to do with religion anymore, it's all about presenting a female that 'satisfies' the male's lust.

Anyways, I digress. My tangent type thinking does this a lot. The point I was asking was if had it been 11pm, would there have been a different conversation between siblings.

I don't know, wasn't there and not privy to their lives, but I sure hope it went along the vein that brother dear played knight in shining armour to sister who had the good sense to stay safe until brother arrived. I'd hate to have to read another tragedy in the papers.

A little inconvenience does go a long way in keeping those we love safe and alive.

Well, if u change the facts as u did, I am sure it would have not turned out to be a joke as it did. Besides, my fren was recovering from a massive drinking session the nite b4, so it explains lots of things!

Agree with you that nowhere is safe now, not even in jail! The whole school uniform incident, singers not allowed to perform and Kelantan asking the women not to wear high heels and make-up has made our country a laughing stock!

Totally agree with you but let's not forget that the HUGE publicity over PAS's dark ages views is to simply make them look bad & alinate non-Muslim voters. Am not satying its right but please do NOT forget that Barisan pricks have on numerous occassions made similar remarks or enforced such "laws".

Lest not forget, it is under BN rule that policewomen MUST wear headscarves & that you MUST wear a SONGKOK when attending a royal function (in Johor at least).

And of course, under BN rule it is ok to committ statutory rape. Jail the opposition member who dares speak about it instead!

ps: Nice to see you using many of Fer Fook's Sake key phrases.

AD: That's just one highlighted news unfortunately it was Kelantan. PAS does tend to come out with some real whammers but aside from that, the ruling party more Muslim than you attitude has taken us on some joy ride and only God knows where this is going to end.

Brings to mind when I went to watch Ratatouille with my kids last Aug, the 50th Merdeka build up. Sitting in the dark cinema watching the Merdeka past I burst out laughing till tears ran down my face and I had other patrons staring at me like I was nuts ...

What induced that outburst? From the 50s 60s 70s 80s to present ... the march pass dress code and the uniform bodies changes in uniform to be more Islamic (whatever that means) was hilarious.

I so remember a time when everyone looked the same except for our names - today you stand out in the crowd wearing less than more for different reasons :))

As fer the fook phrases - AD I think of the George siblings, my vocabulary is the most colourful and expressionful as well if there's such a word :))))))
