Hey, at least they still teach them how to use a condom

"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored." - Aldous Huxley


My attention has been drawn to RI's Sexuality Education syllabus.

Since I am busy, let me just make some observations based on fragments:

"It is premised on the importance of the heterosexual married couple forming a nuclear family as the basic unit of society, and respect for the values and beliefs of the different ethnic and religious communities on sexuality issues"

This is shocking bigotry against extended families, especially since Asian Values emphasise the value of extended families!

Also: goodie - if you're Mormon you can have multiple wives! Too bad for the feminists, though.

"Recognize the consequences of excessive masturbation"

Feed them cornflakes!

"Recognize that there are different ways of inviting sexual intimacy, namely through dressing, speech, actions and choice of dating venues"

Doesn't no mean no?

"Understand that same-gendered sex is against the law in Singapore"

So much for non-enforcement.

"Appreciate sensible dressing and understand how dressing can be interpreted differently by various people"

Slutwalk! Woo hoo!

"Understand there are consequences in any decision one makes regarding sexual intercourse"

Indeed. "No" has consequences too.

"Practise negotiating one’s way out of a negative situation by applying skills learnt from Lesson 2"
(Lesson 2 being: "practise responding to persuation assertively")

I can imagine how the roleplays go...

"Let's not use a condom"

And among same-sex students too!

Of course the 17-18 year olds have something too:

"Students will learn the importance of having realistic expectations about their appearance and be more confident about their body image"

(this should come a lot earlier than 18)
