Baby Dumping Porn

For some reason, our mainstream media has recently gained an obsession to highlight baby dumping issues. I guess that since they cannot highlight other ‘sensitive’ issues, this is the best that they are allowed to do – social issues. You sometimes really need to leave it to our government officials to come up with the craziest notions on what is wrong with our society.

Widespread access to pornography and weakened family ties have led to an increase in baby dumping in the past five years, according to Federal CID director Comm Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin.

Honestly, while I understand that porn is an easy target for weakened family values, it is definitely not the cause. In fact, studies done overseas have shown that there is generally, a reverse correlation between porn and rising social crimes. The more accessible porn material is, the less social crimes there are.

Women’s Aid Organisation executive director Ivy Josiah said there was no correlation between a rise in baby dumping and pornography.

The crux of the matter isn’t the easy availability of porn but the lack of education among our young. Abstinence programmes have proven to be a failure and so, let’s avoid them here. Young people should be taught about their bodies – physical, physiological and psychological aspects of sex.

Sex education should not be treated as a taboo but introduced to combat problems like baby dumping, said Malaysian Council for Child Welfare honorary secretary Ismail Majid.

That is exactly the kind of solution that we need to the problem – instead of just vilifying porn. Don’t mistake me for defending porn, I am attacking stupidity. Anyone who knows me knows that I have zero tolerance for stupidity. Our police chief should learn to keep his opinions to himself and to channel them through a proper channel such as a media spokesperson.

A HONG KONG film-maker is aspiring to become the first person in the world to release a 3D erotic movie. Director Christopher Sun said he was racing against time to complete the filming of the flick titled 3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy.

While I know that 3D is all the craze these days, I’m not quite sure how it would translate porn. Porn is largely viewed in the privacy of homes where availability of 3D devices is less, and there is less need for it because of the smaller viewing experience. However, I’d be interested to find out how it does around the world.
