At risk of being labeled Captain Obvious, all humans deserve access to comprehensive, factual sex education.
I started this blog post series out of a sense of frustration that the state of sex education is so bad in the U.S. today, and I continued it out of a sense of spite. I’m a scholar, and all of the empirical evidence points to comprehensive sex ed being beneficial. I’m an educator, and I’m offended at the bullshit that is being passed off as “education” in schools today.
I got nine posts into this series before losing momentum, and I’m hoping to pick it back up, and maybe publish these essays as part of a book someday. Got a suggestion for another topic to cover, or a tie-in to help make these essays into a book? Let me know! In the meantime, I’ll publish one of these daily and then go back through and insert links so they’re easy to read as a cohesive whole.
