A lookback at the beginnings of "Sumptuous Erotica"
Mid-end October 2012
Over the weeks following his highly-publicised interviews, Tan took to his Facebook page (which now boasts over 9000 subscribers) to rebuke his critics and their claims.
Among his older posts:
“To those who say that we teach children the wrong things, look: those are your children. The world is bad and evil, and it is your job as parents to shield them or educate them about things like this. Ultimately, we don't owe more than an ounce of responsibility towards the young individuals whom you bring to this world. If your children get their hands on this so-called obscene material that we published, you only have yourselves to blame for not knowing how to control your kids. It's not our duty to make parenting and education easy for you, so go and learn how to be good parents instead of blaming others when it is you who failed.”
“Psychologists who have clever things to say about our behaviour should tone it down. How credible is your "appraisal" if you haven't even met us, much less conducted a proper assessment on us?”
“I love these NUS Board of Discipline hearings, where the judge and the prosecutor are the same people.”
“Shame on me as a businessman. They're making a FORTUNE out of Vivian and me -- just look at the numbers! APPEARANCE FEE TIME. >.<”
“P.S. Given how sophisticated the level of discussion was... People with bad English, please stay out -- you might as well be listening to French. :D”
