Spanking Is Great for Sex. Which is why it’s grotesque for parenting.

Spanking Is Great for Sex. Which is why it’s grotesque for parenting. | Sex Positive | Scoop.it
Once again, I’ve been accused of pedophilia. Well, to be technical, my sexual identity was called “somewhat pedophilic.” But we’re talking about one of the most loathsome things a person can be accused of, so why split hairs? I’m also regularly told that my sexuality is “repulsive,” “damaged,” and “abusive.”...

I grew up thinking that once you got your period you had it every day, that sex always happens standing up, and that condoms were as thick as shoe leather. I don’t know where I got these stupid ideas from, but I know that no one I trusted ever disabused...

What is Sex-Positive Parenting?

What is Sex-Positive Parenting? | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Being a sex-positive parent means we assume that our children will grow into autonomous, sexually active adults and we support our children’ s individual sexual identity no matter what. This support is a lifelong process where the conversations start early with age-appropriate explanations.

Choosing the Sexual Orientation of Children

Choosing the Sexual Orientation of Children | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Imagine a prenatal test that, like the one for trisomy 21 (Down's syndrome), could show a predisposition to gayness.


...Sure, it ought to be the case that defending the rights of parents to use this technology doesn’t ultimately undermine queer rights, but it seems hard to believe that in practice it won’t lead to support of the idea that one ought to try not to have a gay child—just as in practice the prenatal test for trisomy 21 (Down's syndrome) has led to a general attitude (at least among the vast majority of my very “progressive” childbearing acquaintances) that one ought to try not to have a child with trisomy 21. I have a friend whose young son has trisomy 21. This friend was out and about with her son one day when another woman looked at her and her son and—recognizing that the son has Down's syndrome—scolded my friend with the question, “Didn’t you get the test?!” I can fully imagine a scenario where, 30 years from now, a woman tells a friend her son has come out as gay, only to have the friend respond, “Didn’t you get the test?!” Could we really imagine that offering such a test would have no negative impact on how an already-homophobic culture views people who are gay (and their parents, for that matter)? In that sense, can we really imagine that supporting parents’ right to choose against homosexuality supports the message that gay people are as good as straight people?

The last paragraph of the article rather captures how I feel about this.

How a new children’s sex-ed book steers clear of S-E-X

How a new children’s sex-ed book steers clear of S-E-X | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

In a quest to include everyone, the author of What Makes a Baby is deliberately vague.

 

...“If you have kids, you probably have four books about colours and 12 books about trucks and three books about sharing, giving or morality. But often parents have just the one book about sex ed. It’s a big part of our lives.”
