“Government Should Gather TV Comedians to Provide Training on Human Rights and Sexual Harassments”
Every weekend, local TV channel programs are showing and competing their entertainments on live such as concert, comedy, classic and modern musics, movie, football, kick boxing, tour-site guide…etc.
In those scenes, there are some offending points in the aspect against Khmer culture as well as morality that most of the acts committed by many comedians. Almost their performances are related to both verbal and physical violences and sexual harassments sometimes in order to make a joke they spoke and touched very rude and referred to both male and female sexes. When I watched their performances once I felt afraid and a shame as human-being and I think that it is not good attitude and educate nothing to young children and young people, on the other hand, it has been happened long times ago due to majority of audiences recognized that their performs are common for comedians to do so. In my observation, they have only narrow concepts about these performances and the main problem is because of these comedians don’t understand human rights and sexual harassments.
In my opinion, if government ignores their performances, young generations and some of the olds as well would learn more and may increase quickly and widespread the bad acts to practice in society such as gang fighting, domestic violence, sexual harassment in working places – karaoke club, beer garden and any bar. I think it is not too late to address this issue that the government; especially, Ministry of Information and Ministry of Culture should gather comedians to provide training on Human Rights and Sexual Harassments.
