Of politicians and warped mind

Of late, women politicians have increasingly become a favourite punching bag of certain sexist politicians and other individuals with warped minds. And by doing so, these sexist individuals also insult our collective intelligence.

The latest case involves a certain Kedah Gerakan Youth leader who reportedly made a snide remark against pregnant politician Hannah Yeoh.

Kedah Gerakan Youth chief Tan Keng Liang has received a rain of fire for his internet posting that made an inappropriate remark about Subang Jaya state assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh’s pregnancy.

NONETan’s posting appeared yesterday evening on a Twitter discussion on whether voters should make choices based on individuals or parties.

At one point, Tan (right) asked a voter with the handle “jqquah” from the Subang Jaya state constituency whether he would vote BN if it fields a “good” candidate there.

The individual replied “of course”, adding that MCA Beliawanis treasurer Jessica Lai was tipped to contest there.

This prompted Tan to make the offending remark, “Would you choose Jessica Lai or Hannah Yeoh (left) who will be on maternity leave soon?”

This was met with an angry reprimand from The Sun editor R Nadeswaran, who replied to Tan describing his comments as “disgusting” and “out of order”.
