If men are unable to control themselves when confronted by a woman’s body, controlling women is not the answer. We need consequences for men’s lack of self-control.

I’m half Malaysian and politics is one of the worst aspects of Malaysia. I’m glad I’ll be in Australia in a few years’ time.

All faiths are insane hate groups. This sickens and saddens me. Religion is crushing hope and dreams. Religion has kept man at each others throat. Their may have been a peace in the past. But the new faiths have kept our species dim and dark for so long, that we lost that historic legacy. The faiths have rewritten the past as truths, where non exist. Damn all religions and faiths to hell.
