Make Sex Education Compulsory in Malaysia

I had asked a teacher why sex education is absent in Malaysia's education system and while she understands the importance of it, she countered with the fact that Malaysia is a Muslim country and that it will inevitably increase the cases of sex-without-marriage which is a taboo in in this country but I think the safety of our children from the consequences of sex is much more important than that even though I am Muslim myself. This does not even cover how consent is heavily misconstrued in our culture especially the abundance of rape that are usually used as a plotholes in popular drama melayu. I want more safe consensual sex amongst all ages and hopefully we'll be seeing that change soon.
