Regarding to the article "Ministry bans obscene songs to save traditions" [The Phnom Penh Post, March 18], I strongly agree with the Ministry of Culture's ban on obscene songs. I think this is a good start for the ministry to take measures against obscenity in Cambodian society. However, verbal and physical sexual harassment appears regularly in comedy and on television.
When I watched these performances, I felt scared, shocked and ashamed as a human being. This kind of comedy gives nothing of educational value to children and youths.
If the government still ignores these performances, it will increase verbal and physical sexual abuse and harassment against girls and women. The government should gather comedians to provide training on human rights and sexual harassments.
