Oookay. I thought teachers were supposed to be SMART! According to the secretary-general (not for much longer, I hope) of the National Union of the Teaching Profession, Lok Yim Phen, the "lack of sex education is not the cause of teenage pregnancies". Apparently, "sex education was already included in subjects like biology, science, moral and Islamic education".
I don't know about right now, but in my day (which wasn't too long ago, okay!!), there was no sex education in moral. Moral consisted of us mindlessly memorising all the stupid moral values which, by the way, had to be written down word-for-word. NO DEVIATION AT ALL, WHETHER IN ARRANGEMENT OF WORDS OR IMBUHAN. So, that was our moral (and sex!) education. Right. Memorising the exact sentence structure for the value of 'trustworthiness' really taught us about sex. No, really. Halfway through the lesson, our teacher would tell us about how unprotected sex would lead to STDs and stuff.
Eh, let me enlighten you teachers on something. Telling a bunch of giggly 15-17 year old students about the science of copulation in Science and Biology classes is not 'sex education'.
"The sperm then meets with the egg in the Fallopian tube..."
"Oh liddat only issit? Okay, I go home and try on my girlfriend! Hmmm. How to start? Nevermind, I'll go watch some porn!"
Yes, teenagers get curious. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY THERE SHOULD BE SEX EDUCATION! Why should they learn everything from pornography? It's completely unrealistic and it doesn't inform them about the risks that sexually active people constantly run! Scare the shit out of the buggers by telling them about STDS, unplanned pregnancies and their detrimental effects. Then sit back and see if that horny kid STILL tries to do funny stuff with his girlfriend.
I bet he'd be so scared, porn will look like a horror movie.
"WHERE IS HIS CONDOM??? DOESN'T HE KNOW ABOUT STDS?? DOESN'T SHE KNOW THAT MORE THAN 5 PARTNERS CAN LEAD TO A HIGHER RISK OF CERVICAL CANCER??"
Now, THAT's effective sex education! Listen and learn, Lok. Geez. Umur sudah tua tapi otak masih kurang matang.
And proof that I'm right:
"Training and education director Nooreen Preusser said parents should start teaching their child about sex from the pre-school level, starting from the various body parts before moving on to age-appropriate information.
Nooreen, who is with P.S. The Children, said Finland, which conducts sex education at pre-school level, had the least number of unwanted pregnancies"
Ha. In your face, ignorant teachers.
