Aware Confirms Feminism is about Feminists telling Women what to do, not what women want to do? Part 2As discussed at length at a2ed.com with Solo Bear, I really don't see how Aware speaks for feminism as a whole.
One should be aware of the existence of a whole host of feminisms - anarcha feminism, radical marxist, black, libertarian, etc., and the singaporean variant, Confucian feminism (termed as such by myself for its oversights when it comes to the interests of women whom aren't a part of the racially-defined 'majority whats!'
Jack's wife may have chosen to forgive the bloke for his hump & dump tendencies, but the issue here should not be if Aware has a right to get involved, but if women who put up with such infidelities do so as perspectival victims of a preceding patriarchal status quo.
Anyway, with regards to the women whom, a la margarine, spread with little resistance for Jack, I have to wonder after the degree to which celeb-worship contributed to it all. In that, the congregation of fans ought to engage in a bout of critical introspection. The grossly insensible overvaluation of the 'star' tends to open up a whole can of vulnerabilities amongst the populace, and which, in this case, seems to include Jack's harem.
All this, 'you cannot tell me what to do, therefore, you're imposing' is so typically Confucian and juvenile, i.e. being averse to 'foreign interference in internal affairs', turning away in the face of contradiction/challenge/novel ideas(as do most Chinese), 'you're not singaporean so you comments on local affairs are discountable' etc. Wake up and smell the parallels that draws its lines from a generic penchant for cultural introversion and self-absorption.
I'd rather focus on the points made as opposed to spending my time debating whose business it is and isn't. Isn't that just another way of discounting information?
