Alan Chin Plays Dirty With Daughter’s Friends

You see how easy it is to throw dirty suggestions & innuendos in the air/e-space?
Yes, that was a dirty trick–but in this case it’s true–it’s a dirty trick and the emails are out there. I’ve forwarded my copy to ACJC and MOE.

let’s frighten parents and the best way to do that is to get my daughter to get their children to talk to them.

I’m talking about the spam mail Alan Chin’s daughter sent round to her friends to introduce her Dad’s call to them to join Aware and support his wife’s team because ACJC students had discussed homosexuality and alternative families during a GP class…

And all this took place according to who?
In Nat’s words,

I think maybe some polo boy’s mom?

And in her Daddy’s attachment he adds:

In another JC, my friend’s daughter was given a hundred over pages of notes for GP in which there were pictures of lesbians kissing (this is not even allowed by censor boards in worldly magazines. Thankfully ACJC was more careful with this) The students have to study the notes and sit for a quiz. Included in the notes were links to helpline and counselling from Aware. As you all may know, AWARE has a new exco, in which nine of the twelve are committed, prayerful Christians.

Sounds like a committed prayerful church group rather than a inter-religious group capable of representing the full diversity of Singapore women.

Why didn’t these women stay in church?

However, the old exco (who have a pro-gay agenda) are planning to overthrow the new exco with a call to a vote of no confidence at the next AGM.

The old exco have already addressed and demonstrated there was no ‘pro-gay’ agenda.
They were supported in this by the MOE and the schools they dealt with.

It’s really funny how Josie Lau whined to the newspapers that her daughters’ names were out there in public and made her feel unsafe.

Why then doesn’t she stop her husband from using his daughter Natalie’s name & friends to forward his own agenda? Or was this her idea?

That people who are willing to use their children and children’s friends to gain power might be involved in running Singapore’s representative women’s organisation makes me feel unsafe!

But what I find really puzzling about this appeal to the parents’ of his daughter’s friends is how something discussed during a GP class in ACJC and the unnamed ‘another JC’ leads to a call to support his wife’s team at the Aware EGM?

Like I was trying to say–I’m not going to post more on that because these names & contacts are now with ACJC and MOE and parties in the right position to take action! 🙂

  2. […] you’d feel as disgusted too, when you realize how low some folks can go. See local playwright Ovida Yu’s blog on how it was discovered that the exco and their posse tried to stir up sh*t inspite […]

  3. I just read the “God’s order for Family” pdf on the Church of our Saviour’s website…. interesting. My immediate reaction was how can someone who believes / advocates these beliefs further the cause of Women….. but then again… maybe it can be interpreted in different ways…

  4. Well thanks, this was really distasteful. Natalie sent the message to selected friends, it wasn’t a mass spam message, and it certainly wasn’t sent to you.

    Whoever sent this to you obviously has a lack of respect of private space, or is too impassioned to care.

    And gee voyeurs, Nat locking her blog is entirely her choice, maybe? Maybe she doesn’t like people like yourselves prying her blog not out of concern for her but for more ammunition?

    That’s right, keep stoking the flames….

    I’m sure in your frenzy to pile on support for your cause any information at all is up for grabs, but its not worth acts like this.

    Gee, seriously. Have a modicum of respect for the individual rights and dignity of people please.

    • Hi Keann, sorry you felt the need to stoke the flames (twice).

      And I completely agree with you being upset at people who ‘pile on support’ for their cause with any information at all.

      Which is what Natalie’s father used her to do when he addressed his message to people he did not know (ie unsolicited spam) through their children.

      His message that begins
      “Dear praying parents,
      For your immediate attention. Fwding some more info that (prayerfully) can help us see the aggresive and thwarted works of the Evil one thru the well meaning but totally brain-washed old guard of AWARE.”

      I have great respect for the individual rights and dignity of people like Hedwig Anuar, Constance Singam, Margaret Thomas, Dana Lam and their colleagues. They have earned it over the years.
      After your friend Natalie circulated a vicious attack that describes them as the ‘totally brain-washed old guard of AWARE’ she can hardly cry that her rights and dignity have been violated.

      As for who forwarded these ‘private’ emails to me, to the press and to the MOE?
      Obviously they were people who resented having Natalie’s father use her to force his opinion on them unsolicited.

  5. Well thanks, this was really distasteful. Natalie sent the message to selected friends, it wasn’t a mass spam message, and it certainly wasn’t sent to you.

  6. Very sad that religion seems to be in the midst of all bad media reviews lately. And the worst of the latest is to have fundamentalist beliefs imposed on the public as a result of some unknown feminists uniting together to promote conservative “pro-family, pro-creation, pro-etc” (read: biased) values, while the world is evolving every minute in terms of culture and human perspectives.

    Am equally puzzled by the fact that while the new exco has highlighted much abt the old guards’ ‘support’ of homosexuality and lesbianism, eg. the support of the Spider Lilies screening, they do not realise it is afterall, financially and socially beneficial to AWARE in the short / long run.

    The new exco should stop to re-examine their accusations / arguments, stop imposing and see the bigger picture for a moment.

    They will be in for a tough one this Sat.

  7. @cynicholas

    -_- Nvm…

    Ok, hopefully now that at least access to those convenient voters are gone (erm, I know sometimes Christian conventions/seminars/services are held at Suntec too, check?), we might stand a chance.

    Recently was sourcing for locations to hold an event, and the rental for Suntec is definitely not cheap. I shudder to think how much they have spent on legal aid and what not in less than 1 month in office.

  8. OMG. I just saw what they uploaded on AWARE website. This is ATROCIOUS. These people are crazed.

    I bet they’re going to pull another stunt like this on the eve of the EGM, and hope that they pull wool over enough people’s eyes for them to win the AGM.

    These group of people are so despicable. Frankly, I hope TSM and her gang will emerge out of this saga with a ruined reputation.

    *still bloody infuriated*

  9. I pity the daughter, looks like the evilness runs deep

    • spare the kid, she’s still at an impressionable age.

    • Excuse me? As Natalie’s friend I think that was a rather uncalled for comment. For one thing, all of you are ready to jump at any “suggestive email” when in actual fact that might not have been the intended purpose at all. Putting her blog up here and dragging her into a debate that has already gone on long enough is just evidence of how all of you clearly have nothing better to do with your lives than harass teenagers online.

      • Dear Raewyn,

        I can understand you thinking this was an uncalled comment if you haven’t seen the email your friend Natalie’s father sent round to her friends–

        (at least I didn’t see you on the mailing list, unless one of your other e-addresses is ‘bridric–@***’ ‘stinky–@***’ ‘imnotlyk–@***’ or ttmttmttm’-@***’ etc etc etc that she forwarded her father’s letter to)

        The email that Natalie mass spammed on her father’s behalf contained his clearly stated and defamatory allegations.
        There can be no doubt what his ‘intended purpose’ was as he states it clearly.
        Deliberately or not, not only Natalie but the on-line server she used might be liable for defamation. ( US standard: “The common law tort of defamation provides a legal remedy to those injured by gossip. Specifically, an individual is subject to liability if he or she damages another person’s reputation by speaking or publishing false statements about that person to a third party”, Restatement (Second) of Torts §558 (1977).)

        Without any intention of ‘harassing teenagers’ online I must point out that her blog, if she has one (I haven’t seen it) is written for public view (why else is she posting publicly?) unless she chooses to block it.

        I must also point out that in this case it was people who felt Natalie Chin was used as a tool in her father’s attempts to harass, intimidate & coerce them.
        They are the ones filing the official complaints.

        And this is a very important time–not just for Aware and other NGSs, not just for Women but for Singaporeans who want stay aware.

  10. I am… dumbfounded. The crazy hillbilly ideology have finally reached our shores…

  11. @Seth Instead of doing damage control they shoot themselves in the foot again and again? FTW. AWARE has gone to the dogs.

  12. Natalie’s blog is locked… that’s fast!!

  13. his daughter takes KI (knowledge inquiry) which is in place of GP. so why should he get involved in a subject she doesn’t even take? he is all kinds of loony.

  14. You may all want to take a look at this. The AWARE website just posted this article

    “Breaking news! detailing events and information that show AWARE old guard hijacked against family values.”

    They created some pdf file that have all the lies and misinformation that they state during their press conference.

    If this is not defamation, I don’t know what is. And they are obviously trying to fan public fear in homosexuality.

    http://www.aware.org.sg/?p=1319&cat=

  15. Btw, her name is Natalie, not Natalia.

  16. Hey, i don’t think it’s nice to put her blog up even though it is the public domain. Let’s not drag the kids in even if their parents have.

    The Chin family epic PR fail over and over again. Someone get them a crisis manager or non-Thio lawyer already!

  17. Obviously GP is a threat to Christian Fundamentalists because it nurtures critical thinking skills in students. Well, we now know what is the best way to control humans, keep them stupid and unable to think for themselves.

    The following is slightly off topic, but Christian Fundamentalists have crossed the line into the school curriculum before in the US.

    I think some school with a school board comprised entirely of fundies tried to change the Biology classes from teaching Darwin’s Theory of Evolution to what they termed Intelligent Design which is actually a thinly-veiled version of Creationism.

    But luckily, some wise teachers and parents fought back and took the case to court where it was found to be against the constitution to teach “Intelligent Design” because it was unscientific and religious-based.

  18. this be nat’s blog. http://herbonestructure.xanga.com/

    funny how one pic has a whole rainbow theme.ironic much

  19. Hi RogueStamp, probably because MOE pointed out that Thio Su Mien’s accusations were unfounded… so since they can’t back down they have to discredit MOE as well!

  20. Couldn’t agree more. I’m from ACJC myself & a nephew just finished there–it’s an institution very close to my heart. I thought the whole point of GP & education was learning & discussion.

  21. They crossed the line into academic freedom already.
    That was fast. What next… take over the cinemas, the theatres, and on and on.

  22. What’s GP got to do with AWARE?

    So what’s next, ban GP from the curriculum as it talks about (explores??) homosexuality?

    BTW, my son is in ACJC.
