Asalaam Alaikum/Hi All!
Ever since reading this article I have been sharing it and discussing it with both muslim and non muslim parents. The general consensus is that they do not agree with it.
The camera pans to the bedroom. Soon, a computer-generated image of a naked man and woman appear on my screen.
They begin to chase each other around the room; she tickles him flirtatiously with a feather; he responds by hitting her with a pillow.
They start to kiss and caress. The next moment they leap onto the sheets and begin having sex in a variety of different sexual positions.
The voiceover informs us: â€˜The manâ€™s penis slides inside the womanâ€™s vagina. Itâ€™s very exciting for both of them.â€™
Now does this sound like something you would want your child to see?
Your 8 year old child?
I certainly would not want my munchkin to see this in just 3 years time.
I vaguely remember my parents pulling me out of sex education at junior school and at that time I did not understand. Now I do.
Now I am no prude. I realise that my child does need to learn about the birds and the bees. But is it not my choice as a parent when she learns about it? Is it not my choice HOW she should learn about it? I certainly do not want her to watch what sounds like an x-rated movie!!
At the end of the day why does an 8 year old need to be taught this anyway? Why does their innocence need to be taken away??
Casual sex has become the norm in western culture and even in some eastern countries, so that is why some people think it is fine to show this perverse video to their kids. But then some parents think it is funny when their 3 year old child chases after another child to try to snog them. Parents think it is ok to put their young girls in sexy clothes and give them make up parties at young ages. Parents think it is ok to give their young child alcohol because it is a special occasion.
Why wait till this video is shown at school? May as well go and get a porn video and allow them to watch that.
What are your thoughts?
Disclaimer: I do realise that not all parents are like the ones I have described at the end of my post!
