Women Only

I was surprised to discover a “Women Only” bus service as I tailed an interstate bus near Taman Melawati in Kuala Lumpur recently. While such a gender discriminatory service may appeal to an ultra sensitive religious group, it leaves me pondering, what is going to happen next? Air Asia flights for women only? Will it stop at discriminating ‘gender’ only. Maybe it was from my previous experience with cups but images of Halal buses and non Halal buses flashed through my mind. 

I feel very sad that we are more divided today than we were in the early years after 1969. I truly fear the situation will spiral out of control and we would need a Rosa Parks to bring us all back to our senses.

    I wonder if the bus driver is a female too? Kinda sickening right? In our office, if you bring oink oink to eat during lunch – they have a designated area for you to eat. And guess what? The designated area is just next to the prayers’ room. Don’t you find this utterly hilarious?

    Asme: No worries, I believe the bus’ origin was from Kelantan or Terengganu or something like that where they have separate queues even when you’re lining up for movie tickets no? Anyway forgot about this until now that you wrote about it…

    Gina: Yup…absolutely hilarious! Wonder what the God’s think abt this…

    Gina – The driver was a man and the bus was empty.

    Area for food – Let JAIS know and they will close down your company for sure.

    Short – No worries?! What happening in Kelantan is now spreading like tentacles.
