Sex Ed for Kids, Norwegian Style

You all know how much sex education sucks in the U.S., right? If you don’t, this Last Week’s Tonight’s episode of John Oliver’s show gives a pretty good look into it.

Things in much of Northern Europe are completely different. Sex education starts early and is quite comprehensive, access to condoms and birth control is easily accessible to everyone, and sexual health services are free. Guess what the outcomes are? The U.S. has the highest teen pregnancy, teen births, STIs among, and sexual shame all developed countries in the world; the Nordic countries have the lowest rates of all four.

And now, to make sex ed even more accessible to all, Norwegian State TV aired THIS sex ed show for 8 year olds to teach them about our bodies and sex. Prepubescent children in Norway know more about sexual pleasure, health and safety than the vast majority of adults in the U.S. This is is the right way to do sex ed for kids (and for adults)!!

Compared to heterosexuals, lesbian and gay folks still have more positive attitudes towards bisexual people, but compared to other gay, lesbian, queer, bisexual, asexual and pansexual people, lesbians and gay men harbor the most bi-negativity. “So, why are many lesbians so anti-bi? A new study recently published in the journal Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity suggests that this might be due to what the researchers call the androcentric desire hypothesis: The fact that people (gay men and lesbians alike) perceive bisexuals as being more sexually attracted to men

  • Study Finds Queer Folks Are 20 Times More Likely to Be Activists Than Cishets

    Lesbian, gay, and bisexual people are more likely to be activists in more than just the LGBT movement, according to recent research. It wouldn’t come as a surprise that people are most likely to engage in activism for their own group: There are far fewer men than women at feminist rallies, for example, and far fewer heterosexuals than queer folks at pride marches. But is there some crossover between social movements?
