Singapore sure has the weirdest news.
First, I read yesterday that a policeman was jailed for two years because he had consensual oral sex with a 16-year-old girl. Today the issue has escalated into a big debate: Is the ruling on oral sex unjustified?
It’s rather ambiguous to have a law that states that “whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animals” is breaking the law. If it’s about involuntary sex, then yeah the law is justified. But to jail those who had had permission seems to be beyond logic and allows for human manipulation to cause harm.
Hmm, in that case, they might need to turn some of those unused HDB flats into jails since most of the population would have had an oral sex experience in their lifetimes. This odd piece of news has even made it to Reuters news wire.
But well, we do know that if Prince Charles had been in Singapore, he wouldn’t be guilty because he did not do it, whatever it is.
In a rather embarrassing public relations fiasco, the British royal family has tried to prevent a scandal involving the prince from reaching the media but rumours are so rife with his “wrongdoing” that he has released a public statement, clarifying that he did not do whatever it was that he was supposed to have done. Needless to say, he was merely dumping pots of fuel into a stoking fire and the media is having a field day ridiculing him and blowing up what was a bonfire into a forest fire disaster. Nobody knows what it was that he had supposedly done but everyone is wondering what it is that’s so outrageous that would prompt him to deny it so publicly.
I can’t wait for the next installment to play itself out.
