Why females prefer to vote for PAP

I have an exchange of email with another person. He asked why many Singaporean women – especially Chinese – still supported PAP?

He was referring to those who are highly educated and successful in their careers and holding positions in business development, professionals and top management.

They earn a high income between $6000-10000 per month and can be seen in networking events

Combined with their husbands’ income, they have a total of over 1 million and more. They don’t live in normal HDB but bungalows, semi-detached and condos and own cars.

I replied that I agree that most well educated women support the PAP. Perhaps one reason is that they do not have to perform National Service and have an advantage over the males.

They will suffer a disadvantage when it comes to raising children, but I understand that a high proportion opt to remain single. They also have the choice of marrying foreigners.

He replied that many of these women preferred to marry westerners because they communicate well and have better persuasion skills.

They married and moved out of Singapore and sometimes coming here occasionally to be with their families on Chinese New Year and National Day besides personal family occasions.

When he was a kid growing up in Holland Village during the 1970-80s, he had met many of them.

If you have ever been there and observed very carefully, you will soon realize the old shopping center is the dividing point between the rich and poor.

On one side are bungalows, semi-detached and condos while on the other are HDB, shop houses and old hawker center.

So even then, I already sensed elitism there.

The difference is obvious. The rich just entered the shops, see what they like and pay straight at counter while the middle income and poor just looked at certain items for a long time before deciding to buy or not to buy.

Most shop owners are friendlier to rich because the rich helped to generate more businesses and recommend their families and friends as well.

But again those are his experiences and opinions.

    Tan Ahhhh!!! KNOW what you write or verify what you write…I am from that Era in the 70s @Holland Village…the shophouses were catering for the HDB locals mostly and the Fried Hokkien mee at the coffeeshop now housing Crystal Jade was classic plus the hawker centre… cheap food some still there like the Tow Huay and fried bee hoon…Tow Huay price has gone up but the bee hoon is still affordable @2.00 you get a decent B/fast or Lunch…

    The wannabees and mostly ex-pats British Army and teachers from UK housed @Chip Bee will patronise the Fitzpatrick and Lim’s who treat locals like dirt…remember when I went into brows and a young man told me that there is NOTHING here that is less than a $100 with a smirk on his face…those were the days then…

    So…Tan Ahhhh!!! check and verify before you post and please do NOT plag leh!!!

  • IdioticNation:

    you can say that your nation is ruled by females just like you see alot of worshippers on Sunday’s are predominantly women, giving power to the big mouth on stage. The men follow the smell of women and listen to them like a good gentleman, which outward expression is attractive to women. These vain lot can’t see beyond their faces when looking at the mirror. There is no depth to a Singaporean thinker. They make very good and peaceful sheep happy grazing grass on someone’s land. After all, eve is the idiot right and Adam loves to point finger. Your garden s*ake loves to smile from ear to ear. So innocent and charming to women.

    @ Tan Kin Lian:
    Your online friend is still Stereotyping women & still thinks in terms of Old Colonial attitudes & Asian women’s Pinkerton effect of “Sarong Party Girl”. You need to tell him to go out more often & relax more.

    Truth is that National Service in S’pore were still detrimental to S’pore Males. Young men lose approximately 2-3 years out of the education process &/or time out from working in a career hence losing out in terms of salary increments & career progression. Also, guys have to complete their NS obligations before they can go overseas for further education putting them behind the girls.

    And the PAP govt had never adequately compensated the S’pore men for their NS sacrifice.

    Secondly, Globalisation & outsourcing have even out the playing field these days. The Whiteman’s past culture of high-living & high expectations these days are tempered through economic reality of life.

    Foreign expatriates on generous salary & fringe benefits are a rarity these days. More often than not, they’re engaged on local terms with perhaps, a little housing allowance on the side.

    Psychologically, women tend to have greater insecurities than men because they are the child bearers & their care-givers. Men, on the other hand, are more risk takers & the family providers but they havevl less insecurities. The next point would explained the Asian women’s need for security & hence, their Pinkerton effect!

    In the past, Asian women were primarily attracted to “Ang-Mos” because of their high living lifestyles & their so-called generous “unlimitless” spending power re: “Pinkerton Effect” or the Whiteman’s Superiority complex.

    But after marriage & subsequent return to their expatriate husband’s homeland, the reality sets in! The generous foreign expatriate package were taken away from them (given to them overseas due to need for MNCs to exploit accounting tax benefits & transfer pricing surpluses). It was never going to be sustainable over the long-fun.

    As the economic reality sets in & the Asian bride soon realises that her Western partner wasn’t as rich nor free-spending (as he was previously spending on company account in Asia) as she first envisualized during their dates. The hidden story that many did’t know or don’t wish to know were that many of those Asian “Pinkerton” women end up divorcing their original White husbands, either remarrying someone else or forging a separate career for themselves. The “Pinkerton effect” or the Whiteman’s Superiority complex faded rapidly!

  • Women politically apathetic:

    There are many examples of women politically inclined and aware.

    But generally speaking, it’s irrefutable that women in general are more politically apathetic than men.

    This is their DNA. Cannot be helped.

    It’s forces of nature.

    They don’t really care that PAP lack transparency. They even find excuses why lack of transparency . They will find all ways just to not have to confront the political issues.

    It gives them migraines.

    So, political apathy is great for PAP.

    Career women are educated and wants to challenge men for higher positions. Although there is no equality possible they like the idea of gender equality because it helps them climb.
    They have fought and won more women’s rights so much so that some men feel disadvantaged in court cases like divorce.
    So they are misguided thinking that there is gender equality possible. I support gender equality but what is the reality?

    Most women cannot even understand politics.

    They fall into the common flawed thinking that Singapore compared to third worlds are better. But they should compare with first worlds. If there is flaw in the system, they compare with the worst in the world. This makes sg flaws look acceptable.
    This type of flawed illogical thinking is what will lead SG to eventually be as bad as lousy countries.

    They should be finding ways to improve SG by raising issues and flaws with the system.

    Most real men do not find career women feminine enough also. This is because gender equality got into their heads. They want to be the man of the house.

    It’s like a bird thinking it’s a man.

    Women also do not demand the govt statistics be independently audited. Some women study accounting but never understood what is audit, by audit. They audit how much they spent in supermarkets but when it comes to gdp and claims made by govt, they just believe.

    Do not be mistaken. Some men also like them.

    I just generalising.

    Nothing is absolute. Even women can be manly.

    With so much women rights in Sg, apathetic career women choose papaya , hands down.
    Just like the new citizens.

  • Rabble-rouser:

    These days, the White folks feel very threatened by the spending power from Asians in their homelands. Look at the Whiteman’s property markets these days, they are dominated by Asian buying power – in Vancouver, Toronto, Sydney, Melbourne, etc. Why the rising White Supremacist groups were coming out of the woodwork primarily because they fear that they are facing obscurity & economic irrelevance as hard working Asians replaced them in the economic game.

    As for discriminatory retailers like those in Holland V, who cares? When buying online is so efficient & non-discriminatory, why patronised such shops! Your friend never heard of TaoBoa, AliExpress, etc.

    Boycott these discriminatory shops & see how fast they closed their shopfront. Then sneer back at them for their outmoded views & silly attitudes! Karma is a b**ch worth repaying!

  • Harder Truths:

    Females want more FT so they can ‘chope’ then and use them to escape Communist Island.

    Also females do not have to serve NS – so they get better jobs because the males are disadvantaged FOR LIFE.

    Females also think Heng is sexy. They like his big specs.

    This has been happening for some time since decades ago and peaked in the 90s and early 2000s.. SPG marrying out and migrating forever.

    Nothing is absolute.
    So, it’s not wise to say Women are this and that.

    A more accurate way to say it is to say Most Women are so and so.

    Can generalise but should not say it as an absolute.
