BANGKOK — A political party was treated to an internet flambe for its denunciation of the “immoral” marketing for a popular Netflix series about teen sex education.

 

Netizens brigaded the Ponlamuang Thai Party’s social media page after it announced Monday that members had complained to broadcasting regulators about giant billboards promoting “Sex Education.” The heretofore unknown party said the ads amounted to “illegal activity of a transnational corporation” that would “negatively affect the youth and create social problems.”

Actually, if you go to the official website for this series you will see a few trailers that show exactly what this series is all about. It is not about sex education...it is extremely suggestive and promotes masturbation, sex outside of marriage and sex among the youth. Just another example of the West exporting their promiscuity and sin to the rest of the world. I can't blame the Thais for being upset. They're already losing a generation of kids to the filthy behavior of the West thanks to the internet. 

Plus teen pregnancy is a big problem here in the LOS.
