Ok, help me out here.

So a local Singaporean woman who dates only expats is considered an SPG, and they do it just because they personally think expats are better than their asian counterparts.

Lets say an SPG get into one of these 'relationships' and ends up marrying the expat she dated.

Uhm....if you ask me, that just sounds like a normal healthy relationship, regardless of who has what skin color. Or does she lose her SPG status the minute she gets married? Or does she get stigmatized and categorized?

I still find this whole SPG picture very skewed in perspective. :?

Oh it's true that you did not attend WNDC. The hubby of our Forum Icon ( :mrgreen: ) has given that term to the Ang Moh Party Men...

Ang Moh Party Men? Excellent term! Congrats to the Forum Icon's hubby for coining that one!

Sigh....missed the fun again - must make more of an effort to stick to one conversation at WNDC!

The whole SPG label thing is stupid. But, if one must apply a pejorative term, then at least use it for girls that despise their own race. They deserve it. I've dated lots of girls here. The ones that say "I hate Chinese men" and are themselves Chinese really turn me off. Not so much that I won't take them home, but they still turn me off. White guys that say they would never date white girls are also top-notch losers (lots of them around too).

Since you asked for it, here we go:

SMARTASS! :P
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.
