Support Laci Green’s "Clit-ical Thinking"

Support Laci Green’s "Clit-ical Thinking" January 15, 2012

A happy update: Laci has prevailed and has a great follow up post defending sex education online.
———————————————————–

I consider Laci Green one of the ten best atheist YouTube video makers on the internet. Her video “Why Atheists Care About Your Religion” is something of an atheist YouTube classic. That it got her temporarily suspended from YouTube, due to complaints of censorious Christians, only adds to its mystique.

In the last couple years her videos have focused on desperately needed frank, fun, affirmative sex education for young people. Yesterday she talked about the clitoris, in the video I’ve embedded above, and her video got flagged as inappropriate for people under 18. Here is her complaint from her Facebook page:

To those who flagged my latest video: Fuck you. Keeping information a secret never helped ANYONE. You are only hurting those you are trying to “protect”. The idea that discussing female anatomy & pleasure is something “18+” is nothing short of oppressive…ESPECIALLY since none of my videos addressing male anatomy & pleasure ever get flagged. Pleasure is for everybody. Yes, even teens. Get over it.

I am in the appeals process & will be hosting it on my website so ANYONE can see it. Even *GASP* minors! Yeah. Suck my clit, douchebags.

Her anger is righteous. Sex is not dirty, it’s not shameful, and it’s not something teenagers should be kept ignorant about. Young people All people deserve to have as much good scientifically-based information, and humanism-based values discussion, about their bodies and about sex as possible. They deserve as much education in how to achieve and to give as much mutually gratifying pleasure and interpersonal satisfaction as possible in their consensual sexual encounters—and even from their masturbation. If you’re the parent of a teenager, male or female, with whom you feel squeamish talking about sex, I suggest you pass on this blog post with her video on the clitoris and also link them to Laci’s whole YouTube channel and her blog.
