RazorTV - Let's Talk About S_E_X

The recent AWARE episode has cast a white-hot spotlight on sex education in schools.

On 5th June, RazorTV's Kai Ling and E-Von invited a few students and myself to talk about Sex Education on their show.

I encourage you to watch Part 2 and 3 of the video, because in Part 3, I said something that I felt is very important for parents and students: "Education not only preserves what is good in society, but it also serves to prepare our kids for the future world." Adult Singaporeans who have the opportunity to work and interact with overseas people will agree that we need to be able to express ourselves clearly, eloquently and with facts to a global community. Without giving our students a world perspective, our kids cannot expect to compete, stand up and be heard with respect by well-educated people from all over the world.

This is Part 1 of the video (about 10 mins):

Here's Part 2 (8 mins):

The Oscar parts local tv censored

"Milk", the movie about slain gay leader Harvey Milk, won Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay.

As usual, any positive portrayal or speech about gay people was censored by local broadcast (imagine trying to do that to other minorities!).

The speech by Best Original Screenplay winner Dustin Lance Black is important, so I'll just put it up here.

And the acceptance speech by Sean Penn for winning Best Actor is also cool. When I watched his performance, even my gaydar was fooled by his acting. Amazing!
