Here's what from the Associated Press:
considers teaching sex to graduates Malaysia
Authorities in the conservative, Muslim-majority nation are considering teaching sex education to teenagers when they undergo national service after leaving school, Abdul Hadi Awang Kechil, director general of the National Service Department, said Wednesday.
Ng Yen Yen, the minister who announced the proposal, was quoted by the national news agency, Bernama, as saying that sex education, including lectures about preventing AIDS, could shield youngsters from unhealthy activities. Ng's aide confirmed the minister made the comments Tuesday.Hadi and Yen Yen, you dont have enough doctors to do full medical check-ups on trainees and and now you are suggesting that our children undergo sex education under pseudo sexologists who might go beyond the call of duty to suggest certain preferred positional intrusions. God, please lah you got to help US. Our leaders are playing with shit and we will invariably be in deep shit if you do not intervene with a tsunami, cyclone, hurricane (no earthquake please) to cleanse this country whose leaders exhibit more of you-know-what than grey matter up there. If you cannot spare us a tsunami, cyclone, hurricane, typhoon.....at least a good shower to flood and cleanse....please lah God. And Yen2, have you consulted Sharizat on this brilliant brain-wave?
As is often the modus operandi in this country, reinforcement is important to lend credence to an idea....the more the merrier, gotong-royong style. Here is an expert (?) contribution:
Adeeba Kamarulzaman, president of the Malaysian AIDS Council, said (tongue in cheek?):
Sex education classes in national service could prove useful because many school teachers are too embarrassed to expound on sex-related topics, she said.
"Better late than never," Adeeba told The Associated Press. "It's a good opportunity. They are at the right age to be receiving this kind of education."
Adeeba dahling, pure unadulterated hogwash! (apologies to Ena, for borrowing). The RIGHT age is when our sons and daughters ask why they are different and the purpose of these differences. As parents we do not tell them stories about birds and bees and such stupid stories about the stork bringing in little brothers and sisters. We tell it as it is.....we even bathe together and the deluge of questions follow....at least Mrs Zorro and I did with our kids whens they were of the inquisitive WHY period. That is the only time the long bath is a bit over crowded....but good for bonding as a family. Sex is perceived taboo when we dont talk about it to our kids. Sex is dirty when we avoid answering questions posed by our kids who want to know FROM their parents. So where do they get their answers? You know! And at NS-going-age, they can tell you many things you don't know. Go ask your own kids.....if you know how!
Admittedly some parents abdicate this responsibility and as such PARENTS should be re-educated along these lines. VALUES learnt from parents are nurtured and they become Aids-free good values preparing and equipping our kids for their future.
IF THE NS WANTS TO INCLUDE SEX EDUCATION AS A MODULE....NAME US THOSE CREDIBLE AUTHORITY YOU HAVE IN YOUR STABLE.....YES ONE EXPERT FOR EACH CAMP. DO THAT, POST THEIR NAMES OTHERWISE DON'T GIVE US ANYMORE SHIT.
