i was chatting with my housemates last night and ended up with a lot of ideas and stories passed on.
we read an article from a tabloid stating that an "innocent 'bahay-bahayan' turned to a sex bout." i was so shocked to learn that a 5-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl had sex while they were playing at the latter's house. the girl's mother caught them in the act and filed criminal charges on the boy. the boy is now under custody of DSWD as per told in the article.
questions kept popping in my head and blurting out my mouth... how did this come to be? why did they do that? how were they able to do that in the first place? what did they feel when they did that? could you say it was lust? should the 5-year-old boy be accused of rape already? should he be jailed for doing so?
my housemates agreed that the kids might have watched it in television and tried to imitate the sex scenes. or it might be imbued by the spreadout of nude bodies in tabloids and other printed materials elsewhere.
our babysitter even added her story regarding the matter. once she saw her 4-year-old niece having sex with another 4-year-old boy. it seems they have a relationship. to think they were just 4-year-olds! they even don't know how to read and write and the first thing they know is sex already! she lost her virginity at the tender age of 4!
ah! what has the world gone into? what more in the generation of my future children? tsk tsk tsk... parental guidance is most needed nowadays but less applied.
