Against all odds.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who recognise a miracle the moment they see one, are wiping away their tears of disbelief and blinking their eyes as they are overwhelmed by the supernatural feat unfolding before their eyes.

This after an unemployed Indian woman overcame her own race to become the newest Malay president of Singapore in the 2017 Presidential Selection.

One Singaporean, Bian Mo Shu, said: “This is unbelievable. Never have I thought humans were capable of overcoming their own race to become another in such a short period of time.”

“I always knew that race was a human construct, but it would take a few generations of intermingling for race to coalesce and branch out.”

“For race to change in a matter of weeks is something extraordinary. And to then claim the highest office of the land, feels almost like a man-made fairy tale.”

Other locals said such transformations set the standard very high for future miracles.

Another local, Zhen Qi Ji, said: “This is a story of aspiration that sets the expectation for future progress very high.”

“To surpass this, in the future, one moment you can be a male, the next moment you can suddenly transform to be female.”

“But it goes to show in Singapore anything can happen and dreams do come true as long as other people believe in you.”

“Biology and history are not determinants of who you can be.”

“For example, one moment you can be a Chinese male presidential hopeful who lost by a few thousand votes, the next moment you are but a nobody whitewashed into the past and forgotten.”

What they say? His willy is small?

Yale-NUS College recently announced that it will be allowing male and female students to share suites (“Male, female students in Yale-NUS can soon share suites”; April 22).

In the report, a parent, Mrs Grace Yeo, was quoted saying: “These are not teenagers but young adults. I trust my son to make responsible choices.”

I wonder if this is representative of Singapore parents today.

Based on the 2004 Global Sex Survey by Durex, the average age that Singaporean youth first have sex is 18.9 years. The survey also found that Singapore youth have an average of 5.8 sexual partners.

The average age that our youth first have sex is dangerously close to the age when students would enter Yale-NUS.

So we have to ask ourselves a fundamental question: Is it an issue to have premarital sex?

Or perhaps we think that even if our children have premarital sex, they can sort it out after marriage.

A recent report (“Recent marriages not standing the test of time”; April 7) showed that recent marriages are failing more often than in the past, and I would say that today’s generation lacks faithfulness.

How does abstaining from premarital sex help? Because when your partner can control himself before marriage, he will be able to control himself after marriage.

One may ask: Why keep your virginity when you can have fun? Because sex has the uncanny ability to create a lasting connection with another person, and the voices of your previous sex partners hovering over you when you embark on a serious relationship can be very disconcerting.

Rage and insecurity can hinder the formation of a healthy relationship and it is very lonely to be in such marriages.

Intentionally or unintentionally, Yale-NUS’ policy propagates a lifestyle that begets relational loneliness.

Society done with closing gender gap as The Economist hires first-ever female editor

People in society will go back to resting on their laurels as hire has been hailed as progress, gender equality.

Congratulating itself for reaching the pinnacle of its achievements, society by-and-large has given itself a pat on the back as it has been announced that The Economist, a magazine filled with summaries of things that have happened the past week or so and then publishing it like it is news, has appointed a woman as its next editor-in-chief.

Zanny Minton Beddoes (top, left), 47, a trained economist who has worked in the publication for the last 21 years, will be taking over the reins from John Micklethwait (top, right) to be the 17th editor-in-chief.

Paul Hornner, a member of society and subscriber to The Economist, said having a woman at the helm is a remarkable step forward for Man and History: “This is progress, if not, the end of trying, no doubt. I think society’s job is pretty much done here. What more is there to achieve?”

“This is the first time in The Economist‘s 172-year history that they hired a woman. All debts from the past have been settled. Man and Woman are now finally equal. We can go back to resting on our laurels now that this has come to pass.”

At press time, society noticed there might have been a glitch, as it has been discovered that true gender equality would only be achieved when a woman gets hired to be an editor and it doesn’t even make it into the news.
