I cannot second Nathan Kitchen’s words enough! This was a very thought out post I was able to read on his facebook page and got permission to share here. Ed Smart represents thousands upon thousands of members of our church who have found no healthy space within our flock. Rather than only pay attention to news when we are gawking at a “celebrity” per se… we need to get to the work of making our spiritual home a home for… Read more

Messages we give about gender and sex have significant consequences. When we erase entire populations by not having them represented… by not giving them voice… by not allowing for them to be as front and center as any other population… we participate in bias and discrimination that directly affects everyone. This can happen within the context of gender, race, disability, ethnicity, mental health, etc. At church we currently have a misogyny problem. We are improving. And yet it is still… Read more

  Tragic and well compiled read by Mormon father who lost his son to suicide. The statistics and well studied “rejecting behaviors” that the Mormon church is continuing to teach and promote, is well thought through by Brian Bresee. This is why I often share my righteous anger and indignation by calling out top leaders of my church. This kind of teaching… which leads to in-group micromanagement and bullying has no place in any entity that would bear the name… Read more

Some notes I took during the recent AASECT conference I attended: I’m going to fail but I’m going to try to capture some of what Kate Bornstein presented on today in regards to gender construct. They said so much that struck profound. But this in particular spoke to me with the populations I tend to work with. “In most religious cannons, anything that helps with having fun and being creative with your gender and sexuality…. will land you in hell.” Sadly… Read more

I need your help and feedback… In the coming months I am going to be shifting in the type of content I will be creating. I will be moving away from Sex Talk with Natasha so that I can more clearly focus on a very specific population/topic I want to help. Those that are coming from religiously conservative upbringings and recognize that sexual shame and misinformation is getting in the way of their marital intimacy. Before I sit down in… Read more
