I can't help myself to write about this topic after reading comments in Mr. Idham's blog. Somehow, there was 1 guy or shall I say 'a Man' has written a few nasty and injustice comments which concern women especially those who used to study in TKC (Tunku Kursiah College), STF (Sek Tun Fatimah) and all other boarding schools.
I was not an exTKC or STF but I surely was 1 of the boarding school girls. I went to MRSM Kerteh when I was 13 (Form 1) and completed my SPM in MRSM Kuantan. Then, I further my studies in PPP and continued my Psychology Degree in United States.
I'm not trying to brag when I had to mention my former schools (there are millions out there who were in the same shoes - nothing special about it) but I am pissed off when someone said boarding school girls are all snobbish! First of all, does he know what snobbish means? If he does, why in the world that he labeled 'us' so?
I could write long enough in Mr Idham's blog to answer him but it was someone else's blog. Since I have my own blog, I better pour my aggravation in my own though I know that man won't ever come and read my blog. I wish he would read this (one fine day!)
To be able to enrol in a boarding school was a blessed to me. If it was not boarding school, I may not able to pray correctly yet, learn to care for other people, study when I am supposed to and learn to be an independent lady! There are many other good things I've obtained by being in the boarding schools which may end up in a few pages if I have to write them all here :)
So, when someone judges boarding schools girls are snobbish, I think he actually refers to someone in a boarding school who has rejected him long time ago and caused him to settle with a non boarding school girl... or in other words, DENIAL!
I knew this 1 exSTF girl whom I consider as a soft, friendly, hardworking and kindhearted lady and she is now doing her PhD in New Zealand. Snobbish is the last word to describe her. There are a few others exTKC an exSTF whom I personally met and they are all good women.
To say ALL ARE SNOBBISH is a false judgment indeed. He better correct his statement or he will have to seek forgiveness from all boarding school women. Boleh ke tu??
By the way, the term that I used in the title (according to yourdictionary.com), it means,
☆ male chauvinist pig - noun
Slang a man who is perceived as approving of an inferior status for women in society: a disparaging term
