Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can see progress and regression at the same time, are calling out Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC as the first staunchly Chinese GRC in Singapore.

This after its only Indian MP Halimah Yacob will become the next president of Singapore come September 2017.

One Singaporean, Ma Lai Ren, said: “In a bid to reserve the elected presidency for Malays, Singapore inevitably makes an Indian woman become president.”

“Worse, this leaves Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC as the first and most staunchly Chinese GRC in Singapore as there are three heterosexual, upper class Chinese men left to run the place.”

“If this isn’t the face of male Chinese privilege, I don’t know what is.”

Other locals said three Chinese men in a GRC is not the worst thing for Singapore.

Another local, See Mi Sai, said: “The worst thing for Singapore is to have three Chinese men who believe they have what it takes to represent the minority groups.”

“The absolute worst are those Chinese men who believe they have highly fluid identities and are expansive in lived experiences to act as representatives of subjugated persons when they don’t at all.”
