Is The SAF For Real?

When you are in the army, you do and say things inside that you would not do or say outside. That’s normal and expected. In the army, you are trained to kill and expected to fight if war happens. That’s not normal.

So I’m shocked that the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) has ban soldiers from singing the song “Purple Light” due to “misogynist” lyrics. Misogynist? This is a song soldiers sang in the midst of a 20km road march and it is ban for misogynist? For real?

Is the current batch of SAF scholars running the SAF a bunch of madmen? You expect soldiers to fight, kill and die for the country, but they can’t say a song due to “misogynist”? Thank goodness my reservist cycle is almost over.
