Shocked by sexploits of teens - A Non Muslim's Concern

WHEN I came across the article “Tudung-clad teens who are hooked on sex” (The Star, Jan 5), I was left shocked, appalled and outraged to read about the adolescent females who unashamedly admitted that they find having sex at a young age fun.

My heart breaks for them, and I cannot help but wonder what drove them to behave in such a way.

Just when I thought sex-saturated culture among teens only happens in Western and so-called advanced societies, I learn that it is now happening in the country.

However, I would like to argue that this problem does not just affect Muslim, tudung-clad girls but also other girls in Malaysia, regardless of skin tone, appearance, ethnicity, socio-economic status, family background or religion. It could be any girl, be it a straight-A student or even the neighbour’s sweet daughter.

To read about a 15-year-old girl confessing that the terms “pure” and virgin do not exist among her friends, and also having the gall to say “What is wrong if my friends and I want some fun and have sex while we are still young?” is unacceptable and frightening.

These girls think they have grown up enough to indulge in pre-marital sex when in actual fact, they are children who are abused and exploited as sex objects.

Do they not realise that they are being used and they have been robbed of their innocence as well?

Why are they so stupid to think that having teen sex is ‘cool’ by ostracising their peers who are still virgins?

To the girls who stand their ground by not bowing to peer pressure and sex, I salute you for sticking to your principles. Keep it up and ignore those who make fun of you for sticking to your guns.

And to those who think having teen sex makes them ‘cooler’ and more beautiful, they are just too stupid to realise they are actually ruining their own future.

It does not take a rocket scientist to tell us that when a teenaged girl indulges in sex, she is not only vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases but also to chauvinistic males who could take advantage of her.

If we want to combat the growing issues of promiscuity among adolescents, we should not blame the media and Western celebrities for glorifying the sex-saturated culture. Nor should we blame our Western counterparts for introducing this unacceptable behaviour as well.

Isn’t it time we took a look at ourselves and did something to combat this problem?

We should be the ones to teach our children that they are human beings with dignity and self-respect and not mere sex objects.

Unless we do something right now, our younger generation will become sex-obsessed adults who will only bring downfall to our society.

*******************************************************************************

Well, that was a letter to the editor of The Star Online from a concerned Non Muslim Malaysian, currently living in Auckland, New Zealand.

She raises her concern for the ignorant teenagers of our country who are destroying their own selfs and their future by engaging in pre marital sex out of their own misguidance and stupid choices.

In a way, Steffie Yin is speaking up about something that I am sure most of us feel strongly about and worry as to what the hell is going on with our Malaysian youth?

Where did we go wrong?

Can we afford to just mind our own business and let the future generations of Malaysians live a life that is devoid of moral responsibility and just watch our going crazy young Malaysians go to waste as a result of their foolhardiness now or stop the rot from spreading amongst the masses?

Even though she's living in New Zealand, Steffi Yin still cares about our going wayward Malaysian girls that she has written to the editor expressing her sorrow about what she is witnessing?

Problem is, do these youths care?

Or does anyone in authority give a shit about the future of these impressionable girls screwing up their life's, literally?

Does Malaysian society in general worry about the rot that is taking place in our nation?

Why are Malaysians turning into a heartless, couldn't care less society?

Who bothers about saving our youths?

I wonder?

You've got that right Edi but still the onus of choice falls upon the individual!

When one is knowledgeable enough to engage in sex before marriage, then one must also realize the consequences of doing so?

Youngsters have no excuse to claim that they did it when they were ignorant!

That's a lie and every individual who commits such acts know bloody well just what they are doing?

To lay blame on parents totally would also be unfair for parents do not stick to their grown up children 24 hours a day, do they?

When such wayward youths go commit such sexual acts during schooling hours, surely their unfortunate parents have no idea of what is taking place until the girls get caught by their teachers or when their illegitimate pregnancies are exposed or they are caught aborting such illegal fruits of their labor?

No one can claim to be ignorant about the pitfalls of such sexual activity before marriage and the reason why so many are doing it is because the authorities are shackled from carrying out preventive action due to the hue and cry that irresponsible quarters of our screwed up society make whenever the religious bodies start enforcing the laws?

I blame it upon the sickos and weirdos amongst us who just do not know the difference between good and bad anymore and the individuals amongst our youth who go commit these acts!

Take Hudud laws for example!

They are the Laws of Almighty Allah!

When Mankind do not follow what the Creator has ordered, it is akin to us not following the manufacturer's instruction as to how to use whatever product that we bought?

The result is right here before us.

Astagh firullahal'azim... Na'uzubillah min zalik...

Such problems are also increasing in Agama schools where students have a broader knowledge of Islam, hukum hudud, the azab of the neraka and akhirat.

Imagine... If those from religious schools indulge in this act, what more about those who hardly have any knowledge about Islam?

Many teens are indulging in this sinful act. Fun? Cool? Is it fun to have an STD? HIV/AIDS? It is fun to be a mother at a young age? Are they willing to accept these responsibilities.

Parents are responsible for educating their young but there are those who do such things behind their parents back.

Malaysia claims to be an Islamic country but where are the Hudud laws?

Westernisation is slowly corrupting our country and this is unacceptable. Modernisation does not equal to westernisation.

Assalamualaikum Adelita.

Good observations from a Muslimah who comes across as wise and knows between the Haqq and the Batil.

If only Malaysia has more like you?

Insya Allah, through our writings here in our blogs, we might be able to shed some light as a guidance for all those who seem stuck in their hell bent ways and seem only interested to go destroy their life's for a momentary bout of pleasure in the sack illegally without realizing the dire consequences awaiting them?

We all know that for every action, there is an exact equal opposite reaction if not worse?

All we can do dear Adelita is to help guide those who do bother to read our blogs here and at the same time take care not to fall into the same old pit of hell that we are warning others about?

Many a good natured soul has lost his or her own goals by falling prey to their own worst enemies, their lusts.

Once lust takes over, all commonsense and rationality turns to dust!

Thank you for your valuable insights and good luck in your blogging.

Will add you to my must read blogs.

All my best wishes to you.

Wassalamualaikum wr wb.
