Thanks Fiji Sun

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Samabula

The Fiji Sun news team should be commended for its quick action in using its business vehicle to pick up Police officers and to stop a drunk man from further beating up his partner. (FS 15/6)

For ex-drunks like me, I don’t mind the early morning parties but it is a different story if it is done in a public place and that it involves punch-ups especially on a woman.

Any man who punches a woman does not deserve to be called a man in my books, and the same goes to those who stand by and do nothing to stop this cowardly act.

Do we have businesses in Fiji who are allowed to sell liquor to the public 24/7?

I don’t think so.

We don’t have to be a rocket scientist to solve some of our own alcohol problems in Suva.

Shut down all nightclubs and drinking holes at 1am, shutdown all illegal after hours liquor sales and experience a totally new Suva.

 

Marist flag

I’m guessing the Fiji passport will also have a new design because it also contains the “coat of arms” on our current flag.

I will not be voting for any of the Fiji flag finalist. It isust not so Fijian.

Sunny Leone

Dr Sushil Sharma, Lautoka

The less people know about Sunny Leone the better.

Till her forthcoming visit to Fiji started to be advertised only recently, which has now led to some local complaints in the media (Regina Naidu: “Spice it up”, FS 17/5/15), many people in Fiji had no clue as to who this person was.

Should you be one of them, then please do not worry, as you have not missed anything momentous.

Regina Naidu sums up very well, the sentiments of Fijians, when she says amongst other things the following: “We are bringing a former porn star to our country, a woman who has absolutely no skills and talent, but is made glamorous by the media for being a porn star and she is slated as an “entertainer of Sunny Leone’s calibre”.

“What kind of message is our written press giving to our youths?

The media is promoting the sexual objectification of women and has a strong hand in the ethical breakdown of our communities in Fiji.”

“Was there no other creative mechanism left for Communications Fiji Limited to celebrate its 25th anniversary apart from bringing a former porn star to our shores? Where are our priorities in Fiji? As a woman and as an educator I say, shame on you and all stakeholders in this venture!!”

In my opinion, Fiji cannot be seen to allow the glorification of people like Sunny Leone, who has had nothing to offer to this world, except “sleaze, sex and trash” of an explicit content available to viewers directly from her own internet official X-rated adult video and photo site http://www.sunnyleone.com/en.

Sunny Leone has helped further devalue women, replicating and even strengthening images of women as “sexual gratification symbols and tools” in our society.

Society is indoctrinated constantly with an image that for a price woman, and for that matter sex, can be bought for gratification of a man’s desire.

This is an illusion that many men live with during their life time, devaluing women in society.

As an unrealistic illusory image that is being passed to our young today, who should be well moulded in our society with the right role-model citizens.

 

Dress rehearsal

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu

Could the Fiji contingent for the Pacific Games organise a dress rehearsal by marching through the city of Suva and then maybe presenting their Tatau and other formalities they need to do.

Would it be a great opportunity for both the players and the fans?
