Elsa Droga Mendoza became a top trending topic earlier today, June 27, for her answer in ABS-CBN's It's Showtime.
The Miss Q and A contestant engaged in a fiery debate in order to earn a slot in the grand finals of the competition.
Elsa and rival Melanie Agnanayon had a debate in order to discuss this topic: Saan dapat unang ituro ang sex education: sa tahanan o sa paaralan?
Melanie chose to defend the tahanan (home) while Elsa was assigned to defend the paaralan (school).
The madlang pipol cheered for Elsa even before their debate started.
In the first round, Elsa said: "Dapat talaga sa paaralan dahil maraming kabataan ang nag-aaral at dapat ituro sa mga kabataan, lalo na ang mga nagbubuntis ng maaga.
"Ayon sa World Health Organization, mas marami ang kabataan ang maagang nabubuntis ngayon."
Melanie answered, "Ang foundation years mo ay sa bahay, sa tahanan.
"Ang una mong guro ay ang nanay. Siya ang dapat unang magturo sa iyo ng sensitibong usapin katulad ng sex education."
Elsa then pointed out, "Maraming kabataan ang walang nanay "Sino ang magtuturo sa kanila?
"Kaya mas gusto nila sa paaralan para matutunan nila ang sex education."
Viewers cheered upon hearing Elsa Droga's argument.
Melanie agreed that there are those who do not have mothers but she answered back: "Hindi lahat ng tahanan ay may nanay. Tama ka.
"Pero may tatay at may nakakatanda. There's no place like home.
"Doon tayo dapat matututo."
The judges were then asked to comment on the performance of the contestants.
Teddy Corpuz said he and Jugs Jugueta they would pick: "Dun kami sa mas marami, mas magagandang points."
Nicole observed, "Melanie presented really good points. Kailangan yung rebuttal, that's where I will really focus.
"I've been to immersions na misinformed ang kabataan kasi it's so hard to talk to them as a parent.
"Sa school kasi may standard and formal education na mabibigay sa kabataan."
Karylle said they had difficulty voting.
Vice Ganda then announced that Elsa would enter the grand finals.
It turned out that Melanie Agnanayon got a score of 9.0 while Elsa Droga Mendoza received a score of 9.7.
