Letter writer: S’pore needs to make asexuality a crime

Posted on 18 February 2014

“If we have sex with more than one partner, we will form a familial incestuous pool, and indeed, we will become a single family unit.”

Dear Newnation.sg,

I am writing to you as an anonymous reader of the most reputable news source in Singapore.

I think we should criminalise asexuality. These people are wasting Singapore’s resources by feeding off our education, medical, and economic system but are not reproducing. It’s a drain on our resources. Why is there no law against this? I think this is sending the wrong signal to people that it is okay to decide you don’t like sex and you don’t have any sexual feelings, and completely corrupts the idea that the family is the basic building block of our society.

Of course, you might say this is ridiculous – these people did not choose to be born asexual. I say this is still a matter of scientific debate and there is no compelling evidence to suggest that nature has a bigger role than nurture. Indeed, monks, priests, nuns, people who choose to be celibate, are even more guilty, because they choose not to reproduce knowingly. What kind of examples are they setting for the next generation? How can we continue to venerate these as our spiritual leaders?

Indeed, everyone should be compelled to have more sex. Then we will have more families. If we have sex with more than one partner, we will form a familial incestuous pool, and indeed, we will become a single family unit, the only unit that forms the true, legitimate, building block of Singapore society.

Please don’t publish my opinion word for word, or people will think we are just copying ideas from some guide to opinion writing, and suspect that there is an undercurrent anti-asexual agenda going on. There is none. There is only me.

Thank you
