Indonesia’s national obsession with sex continues with a passion. Indonesia for all its pious posturing, consistently tops the ASEAN Google charts for Internet Sex Searches. A combination of nonsensical dogma and the active repression of a significant portion of the male population to building any sort of male – female relationship at developmental levels leads to absurd if not tragic levels of ignorance.
In the latest laughable example, H.M. Rasyid, the chief of Prabumulih’s Education Agency, told the Indonesian news portal kompas.com that the the agency intends to include virginity tests as part of its high school admission requirements. To be fair, the last time this was tried, the plan was quickly dropped as the abuse mounted. What is inexcusable, is socially inept twits like Rasyid can actually rise to positions of influence in the Indonesian Education System.
H.M. Rasyid (We assume the HM stands for Hugely Moronic) reportedly went on to justify his outrageous proposal by stating “that increasing instances of premarital sex and prostitution among female students prompted the move.” The statement like the man is nonsensical and says more about the putrid state of his own fevered imagination than the reality of student life in Sumatera.
Between Female Genital Mutilation and Virginity tests for schoolgirls you have to wonder what creates the kind of society with such an official (but sick) obsession with young girl’s vaginas. A bigger wonder is when and if the people will tire of such morons in their daily lives.
