So much coverage on what the Focus on the Family relationship workshop teaches students. MOE is stopping the workshop at the year’s end. FOtF said the workshop supposed to be “light-hearted”. So here’s a “light-hearted” look at what happens in its workshop in school:
Adult: Gals are like delicate flowers, so vulnerable and pretty.
Girl (studious type) : Which flower? Rose or Rafflesia?
Guy (brat): You’re more like a Venus fly-trap!
Adult: Gal! Don’t say that! Guys don’t like gals disagreeing with them. They all very macho in their thinking. That’s how their brain is wired even if their body don’t look it.
Girl: But he’s so offensive! I won’t take this lying down.
Guy: You lie down also I dowan!
Adult: Yes you do. Guys can’t help being hormonally hyped. There’s only one thing you want from her…admit it!
Guy: Like what? Her new iPhone?
Adult: If she’s not in her ugly school uniform and wore fewer clothes, your eyes will be drawn to her like a magnet…
(Guy looks at gal meaningfully…)
Girl (upset) : If he even looks at me, I will slap him! No! No! No!
Adult: You mean Yes! Yes! Yes!???
Girl: No, I mean no! Why can’t guys take No! for an answer?
Guy: Because we’re guys and we will like to have it our way…
Girl: That’s not fair! I wasn’t brought up to be the dependent, submissive type. I want to be like Malala and win the Nobel Peace Prize!
Guy: You also need a bullet in your head!
Adult: Guy and gal, that’s what I mean when I talk about relationship difficulties. You are arguing with each other when you really like each other. Both of you are giving out mixed signals…
Girl: Can you please stop calling me gal. I am a young woman. (walks out in a huff)
Guy: And I seriously don’t like her. As a guy, I mean what I say. (stomps off)
Adult: I now conclude my relationship workshop on understanding the sexes.
