I am still dreaming of the day where we talk about lesbian sex in the classroom. But for now, I will continue to log in instead.
A queer world is one in which we are all talking. You in?
Queering sex education involves simple steps, and many can be observed online.
The Internet as a sex education mechanism for queer people should be the beginning of sex education for queer people, not the end.
Because of the Internet, examples of kink, BDSM, and queer sex are no longer hidden, secret, or shameful. In fact, they’re pretty freakin’ popular.
I’m gonna claim something very hard to claim: that sex education on the Internet is more comprehensive than sex education in schools.
Plus, nobody’s sex education teacher ever made the “is it sex” chart.
Scarleteen kind of changed the world – or at least the worlds of a lot of young people trying to do it right, do it well, and do it on their terms.
Young people are very aware of the shortcomings of their sex education curricula, and they’re not missing a beat in figuring out what is left unsaid.
Most people can easily see the heteronormativity in standardized sex education, even if programs are “comprehensive” as opposed to based in moral standards or an abstinence-only approach.
