and they made her a Chancellor!!
Oh, before I get out of hand allow me to explain. I was reading an article on NST entitled “Do not blame men solely for violence against women”. I was mortified! Here was the wife of our deputy prime minister and supposedly a champion of Women. HAH! if any of her comments are to judged by, that female person does not have a brain between her ears. I take offense to several of her statements and I quote…
“women should know better than to walk alone in dark and deserted areas”
It is 100% the governments responsibility to ensure the safety and well being of the citizens. Thats why we elected the government in the first place. Not so that they can build palatial residences and satay restaurants on illegal land. But to protect us. And here goes the wife of the deputy prime minister saying that we have to fend for ourselves. Not everybody in this country has 5 bodyguards at all times. There are a majority of us, that actually work. Most of us at god awful hours. We have people to support. We have to walk from our offices, to the bus stand and take the bus at 11pm at night to go home! There are many many instances where that there are supposed to be sufficient lighting but YOUR government FAILED to maintain it! Do not ever pass the blame to the citizens who are working to make the country what it is for your FAILURE! And I mean ever! Geezus I am hopping MAD! There are no problems at all for drunk scantily clad girls to go home at 3am in Japan. And thats after walking through the city, getting on the train and walking in the suburbs (quiet and usually involves going through parks). Dont say that Japan is different because its your job to make it happen.
You know I suggest nobody ever invite this female (she doesnt deserve the word “women”) to any event that fights for women rights and well being. Another sore point is her admonishment
“You must remember, when you point to others, there are four other fingers pointing right back at you.”
Is she saying that women should not voice out their concerns because ultimately, its always their fault anyway? I say WHEN THERE IS A WRONG, SPEAK UP! There are some basic rights that every women must protect. The right to speak is one of them. Never let anybody tell you that what you feel and think doesn’t matter. Never let anybody ever convince you that you are inferior. Unfortunately, you are because of people like Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor whois betraying her very gender. She is supposed to fight for you. Not condemn all those poor victims of rape, harassment, sexual abuse and domestic violence. And you are at FAULT if you yourself do not fight. I am a man. I can only say so much. Do so much.
She added that women should dress decently to avoid attracting unwanted attention from dangerous men.
Her last comments summarizes it succintly. Its time for you to act if you care at all about your safety and rights as a women in Malaysia. Pass the word to everybody you know.
