Yesterday, many visitors came to me via doing a search on Technorati & Bloglines using different combinations of these 3 terms: kenny sia, spg, & xiaxue. I in turn visited those that visited me and those that were shown on the Technorati/Bloglines search results. I left comments wherever I had something to say to the authors and the situation in general. I thought that that’d be it for me but nope – I still have sh*t to say and I don’t like feeling constipated.
The question that kept gnawing at me was: why do ppl have so much emotional investment in Kenny’s private life and for that matter, his girlfriend’s? So much so that they’d abuse a virtual stranger for what he is supposedly doing to his gf and their relationship. Why do you care??? Are you paying him for his writing? No? Then you don’t own him. If he’s brave enough to bare his soul to the world, let him do it. Posting up that photo (warning: definitely not worksafe) may have been ill-advised and may have been slightly impulsive. I know for sure that if I had a gf, she definitely wouldn’t approve. But hey, as Kenny would say, he’s got “big coconuts”. If he can deal with the consequences, let him. It’s his blog, his prerogative.
I know: with fame comes responsibility or something like that. But you know what – if you don’t like it, don’t read it. Kenny’s not in your face, and you have to know his URL to see the site. If you’re a parent and you’re complaining about nudity – be a parent! Monitor your child’s internet activitives and quit putting the onus on others.
If all the supposed “fans” who criticised him think that they are doing something good, then they are wrong. They’ve now made Kenny think twice about his writing and whether or not he should even have a blog. If he stops writing, who loses? Those who moralised about this issue, I ask you this: have you ever bought and read the tabloids? Do you self-induldingly flip through the gossip mags at the hairdressers or barbers? Do you steal a look at your gf’s magazines? If your answer is “yes” then what is the difference between what Kenny did and the stuff in the tabloids? You already like reading this kind of stuff, you hypocrites.
For all we know, Kenny and his gf may have split up (as pointed out to me by honeypot, for the lack of posts about her in the last month or so) and he just hadn’t posted about it, which is understandable. So in hindsight, his photo with SPG may have just been a bit of harmless fun. Yes I think bare breasts are harmless fun if both are consenting adults. But if you don’t feel the same – don’t visit the site! Kenny and SPG didn’t raise the sh*tstorm. XX, her fans, and Kenny’s so-called fans did. Why are you all so anal?
I for one would hope that Kenny would continue to write honestly because if he doesn’t, that defeats the entire point of a blog and why we read it in the first place. And, for the last f**king time – it’s only a blog! Lighten up!
