The Malay Man

Somebody surprised me last night.

He was a Malay man. And he said, "I don't want another kid."


"I already have one kid, and I can say that it is not financially and psychologically viable."

Wow. A Malay man, the term itself turning into a curse word amongst non-Malays and non-male people, speaking against the very thing they are defined for.

"You'd be bringing a soul into a cruel and dirty world."

Ding ding ding!

Oh, my. Is the collective consciousness finally waking up?

I don't know, and I don't care. But I am pleasantly surprised.
