The Herald reports:
Mr Quah told the Herald yesterday he thought it was possible that he had posed for the compromising photographs. “I might have been drunk off my face or my political enemies might have drugged me.”
One photo shows him exposing his private parts as he takes a picture of himself in a mirror.
“But that’s not my penis,” he said. So whose was it?
“Look, maybe somebody photoshopped it, and put another one on the photo,” he said. “I can tell you, it’s not me. I know these things. But really, I can’t remember “¦ All I know, I have been humiliated.”
Always nice to see a wingnut MRA get into a slow-motion public trainwreck of his own making. And to be forever followed by the panicked retort “That’s not my penis!”?
I could be at serious risk of aspirating something.

This whole thing’s distressing me -I’ve recieved threats and requests for help from lonely men googling feminist and mental health since this broke [though maybe it wasn’t all related, some did mention it.]
I think some of the other forums where it’s being circulated have gone from the Family First hypocrisy LOLZ angle – to more nasty and irrelevant jokes about Quahs’ ‘eccentricities’ and perceptions that men’s health needs are in competition with womens rights.
There’s an element almost of, saying Quah’s a joke because of the hypocrisy, homophobia and mysoginy – but then using langauge that touches on homophobia or mad stigma itself.
Like, why is it such a joke that he likes bonsai?
Hypocrites removal from Family First: Snarkworthy
Family First’s excellent recruitment process:Lolworthy
Blogs going “homophobia is bad, but this guy likes sex AND bonsai AND may be crazy LOL LOL LOL!”- lost me there.
Although, that could be my humourless feminist gene.
He’s a deeply unsympathetic character, and his two defences or “drunk or drugged” and “not my penis” are so asinine that it is very difficult not to mock, and as you say, the misogyny and hypocrisy etc are truly mockworthy.
The bonsai jokes are about size, and are pretty lame and predictable. I suspect you’re right about the mental health aspect, although I haven’t stuck around in the threads long enough to see the discussion descend there, but that’s really not funny.
outfox: totally agree with you, on the effeminacy and penis-size jokes elsewhere. I avoided them in this post, to focus instead on his undergraduate-misogyny bluster (“What about a Men’s Room, huh?!”) and the hilarity of his excuses when his comeuppance came.
