Melissa Chen: Can’t ignore the elephant in the room that is Amos Yee…

01) Can’t ignore the elephant in the room that is Amos Yee [December 10, 2018]

“Can’t ignore the elephant in the room that is Amos Yee. Apologies for hastily-made video in the airport lounge.

My statement:”

This is a woman who fought to get Amos Yee out of Singapore, when he was being persecuted for voicing his views.

…Allegedly, Melissa is a professional free speech [and human rights?] activist…

…And yet…when the speech is concerning “pedophiles” and “pedophilia”…Melissa is not so much of a champion for speech…

In fact…it seems the people who want to push back against pedophile hysteria are “okay to throw to the wolves”…if we are taking Melissa at her word…and, well…she can tell you in her own words.

…Amos was pushing back against the pedophile hysteria, after all.

I am glad I kept Amos at a distance…I don’t have any bad experiences with him…I barely have any experiences with him, at all…but I’m too cautious, to go running into any type of relationship with someone that rambunctious…and I wanted to see if/how he would establish himself, first…I wanted for time to vett him.

It raised a great deal of concern, when the claim surfaced that Amos was outing NOMAP’s…

…Regardless of what you think of NOMAP’s…that sort of behavior is not something I take any positive view on…

It’s one of the unforgivable sins, in fact.

We as a community, exist by delicate balance…and we cannot be violating the very principles which keep us safe and functioning…Nobody can just move in, and decide they are going to impose this sort of thing on the wider community…and I will never side with anyone who does such a thing.

That is a different issue from the subject of this post, however.

We fight…because even the “free speech and human rights champions”, have largely turned their backs on us…

…They are derelict, where it comes to the free speech and human rights of MAP’s.

If they are supposedly the line of defense we are expected to rely upon…

…then we are absolutely screwed.

We are forced to be our own defense…often times, standing alone.
