Local advocacy group AMARE (Association of Men for Action and Reaction) is circulating a petition to put an end to violence against men’s wallets.

This after many shopping centres in the Orchard Road strip have put up Christmas decorations in the middle of November, signalling it is wallet-raping time.

President of men’s rights group, AMARE (Association of Men for Action and Reaction), Akshun Bayday, said: “Women usually take Christmas as an excuse to buy a lot of things they don’t need, which puts unnecessary burden on men’s wallets.”

“This tradition needs to stop.”

However, men are not hopeful things will change for the better so soon.

Da Nan Ren, a local, said: “I have so many expectations to meet as a man. Work hard, climb the corporate ladder, put food on the table, start a family, go to the gym, know how to drive, be good with tools, and the list goes on.”

“And come Christmas, I still have to pay for things I don’t need.”
