Then she went to Australia to study, became a psychotherapist (WTF!?), and has just written a book about her youth.. including her ordeals growing up and being sexually abused by not one but two Singaporean priests. She is also a single mother of 2 kids (not the priests kids.. don't think until so drama. lol).
Before I give you my take on this... I want to point out, that although I am Catholic... I'm no bible basher... and I'm open to theories or evolution and all that. Also, recently, I'm no longer a practicing Catholic. Long story... but basically, the church wouldn't marry me because David is a divorcee (divorced like almost decade ago). So it kinda made me feel... hmm... excluded. So,while I don't hate my religion and everything it stands for.. there are just some things about it that doesn't work for me. So I just let it be.
Back to the topic today... this girl... my first impression of her (apart from.. OMG what kinda shitty dated and ugly belt is she wearing?) ...my first impression is -something is not right with this chick. Looks like a real bunny boiler.
One might want to give her more credit than deserved.. because she is a 'psychotherapist' by profession. But then again... she got this from Australia... (no offence to those who have earned spots in good universities there).. but generally... isn't it the country Singaporeans go to get a degree when they like can't pass their O Levels?
Also... if the second priest is counselling her.. well aware that she has been telling people that another priest abused her sexually.... why would he be so dumb as to do it as well. He knows this girl will tell people!! Wouldn't like alarm bells have already rung. And wouldn't there be greater scrutiny on the whole situation?Dafug.
So yes, I am waiting for the Catholic church (or relevant authorities) to investigate this whole thing. Will be interesting. My bet is... she's a nut job... that had designs on a priest, and when she realised it wasn't going to happen.. rejection made her tell a fib (that she was sexually abused).
You know, like the kind of girl who gets pregnant on purpose in an attempt to tie you down into a relationship or what. Or the girl you meet at a club ... flirts and then sleeps with you and then says you raped her. A bit psycho.
Anyway, that's my take on it... I don't claim to know for sure. Merely my opinion. For all we know.. maybe everything she says is 100% true. What do you think? You think her story is true?
But then again, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" :P Wonder if the lawyers can use this to fight a court case against her haha.
I got quite a few friends getting decent grades for 'O' levels and went overseas (Australia) for their studies. Kindly don't look down on them. They enjoy and can have the luxury to study overseas..
Like I said- "(no offence to those who have earned spots in good universities there)."
but there are places in Australia where you don't need much academic sucess prior to getting a spot in their institution. And many Singaporeans who don't pass their O levels do end up there.
That doesn't mean I'm saying all singaporeans who study in Australia are failures in Singapore.
1. Singaporeans go to Australia to further their studies because they can and because AU unis are more well-recognised than Sg's especially for Psychology/Psychotherapy degrees. By stating something as ridiculous and narrow-minded as that, Holly Jean, it makes one question the calibre of NUS graduates. But thankfully, one bad apple does not make the entire tree's fruit rotten.
2. There are teen girls who have been sexually abused by pastors/priests. Married ones at that and yes, in their marital beds. I happen to know one.
What kind of myopic and misogynistic judgement is "My bet is... she's a nut job... that had designs on a priest, and when she realised it wasn't going to happen.. rejection made her tell a fib (that she was sexually abused)"? I think feminism and gender equality just dropped a hundred notches from that ridiculous, sexist comment.
Never assume that someone is lying when it comes to sexual abuse, that's disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself, Holly.
It's about time you stop victim blaming and shaming. People like you are the reason victims and survivors choose not to make reports and have justice served
