In any case, it was not a schoolboy who gave you the finger.
That was the great controversy of the National Day Parade of last year (NDP). This year the controversy does not have to be blurred.
It all started during the inspection of the guard of honor by President Halimah Yacob.
Perhaps it fitted in our first female president at her first NDP as head of state, Madam Halimah stopped for a few words with a female member of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) contingent, military expert 1 Gorgina Choo.
Yes, Gorgina, not Georgina. The "e" probably melted in the heat. Warner Bros. should apologize.
The next day links to her social media accounts were posted on the HardwareZone online forum along with selfies of her Instagram.
The less obscene comments include "She is so chio" and "Heading to CMPB on Monday to sign on RSAF liao".
The next day the Alvinology website posted an article entitled "Who is Gorgina Choo? The chiobu guardian of honor President Halimah Yacob spoke to NDP 2018", which included a poll: "Who is the best chiobu of Singapore in uniform?"
Last Wednesday another website called Rice Media posted an article criticizing the focus on the appearance of ME1 Choo and other military women by Alvinology, SAF and others.
Unfortunately, the article was misleading: "Does the SAF only offer attractive women?" which was not the point of the article at all.
This apparently created enough online rattles about the "objectification of women in uniform" that The Straits Times asked the Ministry of Defense (Mindef) about it.
Mindef said that it regularly contains its servicemen and servants on various platforms and channels. These photos can contain glamorous photographs of them in their civilian attire, taken with the approval of the mentioned, it said.
"This is a standard trade practice used by many organizations to emphasize people in their versatile roles and attributes and in no way dilutes their contributions in the SAF," added Mindef
The question is, why does it appear? Mindef only to mark female women who are chiobu?
The answer is – it does not.
Last week, Mindef on its social media platforms, SAFVC Volunteer (SV) was 2 Chi Meina, a mother of two who volunteered to act as a Command, Control, Communications and Computer expert at RSAF.
And SV2 Arlene Pang, who joined the navy as a navigator despite her father telling her: "Sailing is not for girls."
Why do not they get more attention? Could it be because they are not chio enough?
Is it Mindef & # 39; s fault that the buayas in HardwareZone are such buyas?
Rice Media said that SAF "regularly parades these attractive young women for thirsty male citizens to let them sign with the military."
If this were true, all Singaporean men should give Mindef the finger to us as such superficial to treat lechers, even though we are. #MenToo [Natuurlijk] more than one buaya in HardwareZone joked about joining the air force after seeing ME1 Choo, but are they really persevered?
Thanks to the national service, most of us are forced to hire, whether we like it or not, unlike those women who paid to join the 2D1N "Boot Camp" next month to " to experience daily routines of our national military personnel ".
In the Mindef video about ME1 Choo, she gave advice to women who are thinking of joining SAF and not giving advice to boys about how to make a date with her.
"If boys can do it, girls can do it too," she said.
So you see, SAF is really parading these attractive young women to get women to sign up, not men.
Because God knows that SAF already has us at the HardwareZone.
Whether Singaporean women should give Mindef the finger is up to them.
Just don & # 39; t do it on the NDP.
