X603: Intimate Justice: Reimagining Sex Ed in Rainstorm Spring 2021 (May. 15 - 16, 2021)
"Don't have sex, because you will get pregnant and die! Don't have sex in the missionary position, don't have sex standing up, just don't do it, OK, promise? OK, now everybody take some rubbers." — Mean Girls (2004) --- If you've seen the movie Mean Girls, you know this scene is just for laughs. But actually, that kind of sex ed isn't too far off from the reality in U.S. high schools today. For example, did you know that only 17 states require sex ed program content to just be *medically accurate*? Yep, and there are a lot more mind-boggling facts where that came from. Or maybe you feel like you've learned enough -- you know that contraception is good and STI's are bad, and maybe some basics about sexual consent too. But there's a lot more to sex ed than learning what's safe and legal. If you'd like to dip your toes in some sex ed that's **feminist** (i.e. how can we celebrate self-exploration and pleasure in female sexuality), **comprehensive** (i.e. what about topics like healthy relationships, body image/self-esteem, and messages from pop culture?), and **supportive** (i.e. how do we figure out our own values, boundaries, and desires regarding sex), this class is for you!
