I was astonished to find out that the Singapore government has banned adultery website Ashley Madison. But should I be shocked? While Singapore has always claimed to be a modern country, she comes across as a conservative and impractical state at times. One can forgive some folks for remarking that we have a communist run government.
Yes Ashley Madison is a website that promotes adultery. But if someone truly wants to commit adultery, there are many other options for them. There is Facebook and countless dating websites they can use. This website shows you various steps you can take so you won't get caught on Facebook! Well there are even dating apps for smart phones that show "willing participants" that are within your vicinity! All one really needs to do is start a conversation with a simple "hello". I should know because I installed one such app on my friend's phone. And yes, he ended up banging a few chicks. Lucky him!
There's another app called 'WeChat' that has ruined relationships too. Asiafriendfinder.com too! This website may sound friendly but it's as filthy as a hooker with herpes! You don't go on Asiafriendfinder.com to look for friends. Fuck buddies, a threesome and orgy invites are just some of the benefits of being a paid member.
The point I'm trying to make is this... If someone wants to cheat, THEY WILL DO IT! It's just the way it is. They don't need no Ashley Madison website! Banning Ashley Madison made Singapore look like a bunch of prudes. Instead Singapore should have come up with a movement to educate Singaporeans on the dangers of adultery (sexual diseases, how it harms one's family, etc). But I guess they chose the easy way out. To ban and ignore there is moral problem with our society. Or maybe they want to avoid another Michael Palmer scandal among their ministers and MP's.
What is your point of view?
