Whoa!!!! Big name, intimidating term.
MCB, don’t anyone dare to call me a housewife anymore, ok? Later, I go watch re-runs of The Texas Chainsaw wateva everyday and soon, I take a chainsaw and zrrrrrrrrttttttttzzzzz off all these politicians.
Housewives categorised as â€œheavy viewersâ€ are easily influenced, to the extent that they emulate the scenes they see on television in working out their frustrations.
A study reveals a high possibility of them resorting to suicide if they were frustrated with life and depressed due to family problems.
Ishak Abdul Hamid, a consultant and expert in communication at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), said researcher George Gerbner explained this tendency in the â€œCultivation Theoryâ€.
â€œThe theory states that heavy viewers, comprising individuals who spend most of their time watching television, like housewives, are prone to believe everything they see (on TV) and cannot differentiate between reality and fiction,â€ he said.
All you situpid politikus never ever come down from your Mercedez and bangarlows to help your fellow brethens. You all live so rich lifestyle and forget how some of your brethens live. Scrimping through to earn three meals, toddy and alcohol problems, gamblings, plenty of prostitutes, domestic violences, expensive healthcare which they can’t afford, a huge disparity between the races causing some inferior complex and etc.
And now you blame these housewives for watching too much TV? Dear Yang Berhormat, Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk G. Palanivel – listen to me, changes have to come from the top. The Government has to deal with the root cause. One of them is how much the Women, Family and Community Development empower the women and how much they provide support for these women.
With chauvinist and insensitive comments from people like you, is it any wonder that these people who are from the poorer income will forever remained feeling worthless and depressed? A person died and you blame her for watching too much TV? Datuk G. Palanivel, I agree that the Hindi movies are very addictive and can be influential but if you have to comment, tell your fellow Ministers and do something from the cabinet level BEFORE rots like these happen.
As for the mother who dragged her children to die along with her, let us remember that she probably loved them too much and do not want to leave her children defenceless upon her death. Everytime you hear of a mother who committed suicide with her children, do not judge her. Circumstances had forced her to that level. We are not there to understand what drove her to it. We may not totally understand mental depression but we must remember that they cannot make sensible judgements when they are afflicted with this illness. It is an illness, not something they can control. If there is any party to blame, blame ourselves that we had not make the world a better place for others. Remember that sometimes, your smile and a little kindness could prevent someone from falling deeper into depression.
‘Cuse, me, I better off to go watch some p0rn now.
