GCVM1055 Real Sex, Naked Truth: Christian Values in Changing Chinese Societies

縱使現今的社會被視為較為開放,許多人都視「性」為一種談論的禁忌。其實,現今社會有許多議題往往牽涉性,例如色性刊物、多元家庭及婚姻、性傾向;而與性相關的道德倫理,並非一般人所知的「基督教不同意婚前性行為」、「中國人一向比較性保守」般簡單。
許多人對性均感到好奇。透過這個通識課程,同學們不單能在一個開放的環境裏,進一步了解性道德倫理、前人的想法,以至現今社會涉及的性議題;更進一步的是,同學們能從班中的辯論當中,了解其他同學心底裏對性的看法,以及訓練思維,從而對「性」有更多的認知,並非一般中學性教育般提及安全性行為等知識。可想而知,在眾多通識教育科目中,這是一個非常有趣而又吸引的科目。
(Translation) Though the modern society is considered as more open, lots of people still consider “sex” as a taboo. In fact, many issues are related to sex in our society, such as pornography, multicultural family and marriage, and sexual orientation. The moral values related to sex is not as simple as “Christian disagree with pre-marital sex” nor “Chinese are more conservative in sex”.
Many people are curious about sex. Through this GE course, not only we can openly learn various views and moral values about sex issues, we can also get to know different classmates’ views on sex and train critical thinking skills through debates in class. It’s not just about knowledge of safe sex like what secondary school has taught us. Hence, among many GE courses, this is a very interesting and attractive one.
