Youth dialogue with #Brunei LegCo youth rep Khairunissa Ashari @kyeeee
Some recs from youth during dialogue with #LegCo rep @kyeeee: 1) Remove need for event permits from MOHA
2) Require MPKs (village councils) to have a youth member on their committee, to enhance youth involvement & interest in local govt
3) Introduce mentorship programmes for civil service, creative arts
4) Need grants for arts: 'artists can't make quality work living off nasi katok'
5) Youth need communal spaces/co-working spaces to work, build businesses, start-ups, NGOs
6) Need to address govt censorship, esp in arts. Standards are subjective, don't distinguish btwn what's unpleasant & what's inappropriate.
7) Govt will be more responsive to youth feedback if they have solutions/proposals to address problem/issue

For the record @Diplomat_APAC , Tiffany Teo is Singaporean not Bruneian. Although she was born in Brunei and lived here briefly as an expat, she identifies as Singaporean, and competes for Singapore, as is stated in @MarcusChhan’s stories for @thescoop_co
And idk where to begin w/ this shallow, misinformed interpretation of the state of women in Brunei. Maybe next time, idk, try talking to some actual Bruneian women. I guess we’re too busy being repressed to speak for ourselves, need other people to speak on our behalf. NO THANKS.
Bruneian women have been telling their stories for a long time, but if those stories aren’t published in western media, they don’t exist right?

I feel like there is a clear distinction btwn the kind of work achieved by meticulous, scrupulous journalists that exposed Weinstein et al, which has quickly devolved into McCarthy-like “gotcha” journalism, fed by the click-bait worthiness of exposing male celebs.
The way it tries to frame the incident - by hyping up details like her inability to choose red or white wine as indicative of something sinister - is dangerous and shoddy
It goes some way to trvilaising what is a disturbing and upsetting sexual encounter for the woman by failing to examine the often toxic culture surrounding sex & dating, and makes it about an Ansari takedown.
