Minister Vivian Balakrishnan, a man, not aware that “Vivian” is a lady’s name

Minister Vivian Balakrishnan is not aware that he has a woman’s name. This shocking news was revealed after a letter was received from a French diplomat to his office, addressed to “Madame Vivian Balakrishnan”. The minister then went on to assure the Singapore public that he is indeed, yes, a man. As the word “yes man” is common in Singapore, but “yes woman” is not common, most Singaporeans believe the minister is telling the truth.

    Hi, Vivian is an acceptable male name. The female version is spelt Vivien.

    When he was born the parents must have struggled to see his genitals. The mother must have wanted a girl, so named him a gender-ambigious Vivian. Cheez…what a stupid name.
