The information, which appeared in an infographic in a Year Three health and physical education textbook, came to attention after a Twitter user in Malaysia posted a photo criticising the textbook for "victim-blaming". Shaming kids is not acceptable," tweeted one user. Using the example of a girl named "Amira", the textbook warns that failing to protect one's modesty would bring girls shame, cause them to be disliked by peers, and chip away at the family's honour. The textbook also told girls to wear clothes that "protect the modesty of their genitals", shut the door when they change, and not to visit quiet places alone.

Malaysia's government will alter an elementary-school textbook which suggested girls should dress modestly to prevent sexual assault, authorities said Wednesday, after it sparked widespread anger. Social media exploded with outrage after images circulated of a section of the book, which is used by nine-year-olds, entitled "Saving one's modesty". It featured a series of pictures of a fictional girl called Amira, whose parents advise her to protect "the modesty of her sexual organs" by wearing the correct attire. They also tell her to keep the door of her room closed when changing clothes, and to avoid spending time in quiet locations alone. If she fails in her efforts to prevent an assault, Amira would bring shame on her family, be shunned by her friends and face emotional problems, the book said. Activists said the book was teaching children from a young age that female victims of sex attacks only had themselves to blame.
Though I see your point, I still believe Trump knows he has no legs to stand on as far as using genuine, heartfelt remarks about what these men and women have sacrificed in war. Everyone knows Trump was a 5-time draft dodger who's tried to cover his tracks as a draft dodger by ridiculing the POW experience of Sen. John McCain and the record of sundry other Vietnam veterans like John Kerry and . Trump has done that because he's got nowhere to go w/his claim of being a guy who'd run into that high school even without a gun. Lordy, that's a pretty stinky ripe lie from a known draft dodger!
