S’PORE STUDENTS MADE TO SIGN VIRGINITY PLEDGES FOR SEX EDUCATION

‘I remember attending some “sex-education” talk when I was in secondary two, and near the end they gave out these cards for us to sign. Being the naive boy I was, I obediently signed it and at choir practice later on that day, asked my 17 year old senior to be my witness. She gave me a weird look but signed it anyway, and I didn’t think too much about it after that.

It dawned on me few years later that I was part of a whole group of 14 year old kids were being brainwashed into thinking that sex before marriage was wrong, and that my senior was probably thinking how wrong it was that kids that young were being pressured into promising that they wouldn’t engage in sexual activity until they entered a “lifelong, committed, monogamous marriage”. I wonder who’s the one with the agenda now.’
