Wandering Minstrel

In addition to exploring my own sexuality and body confidence, this blog will feature some cool definitions I'm hoping to use to make a change to the school sex ed program. Enjoy!

So this one was difficult for me, as it’s something I’ve only recently (like over the last six months) been exposed to. Please correct me if I’ve made a mistake.

At my school I’m creating a booklet full of the colour squares/definitions you see here and more and I’m giving them to all the PE/Health teachers to help remedy their unbelievably narrow teaching field when it comes to sexual health (one teacher asked me what a bisexual was). Then I’m setting up the teachers on a learning course in which they’ll learn about recognising and controlling homophobia in classrooms ie. the difference between somebody having an opinion and  somebody bullying/ being hateful. Then I’m setting up a tumblr full of facts, articles, and stories which people at my school will be able to access to ask questions. Hopefully this will serve as a great way to find people who could benefit from meeting with the guidance counsellor. We will hopefully be bringing LGBTQetc. rights and issues to my high school and then slowly the wider community by creating a bond between support groups already established in other areas and our school. Finally we hope to host informative talks and open discussion groups. Using my prefect powers for good aww yee! 

When this is in motion, we will hopefully make improvements to Sex Ed in the school in general.

"Alternatives to sex" as a part of education in schools seems morally questionable to me. Firstly because it reinforces the idea that something is wrong with sex, secondly because it fails to recognise that the potential for the transmissions STDs or other such unwanted things is still there, even if it is lessened, and thirdly because it shouldn’t be up to the schools. They aren’t able to give a sexual education suited to each child and so they often damage the child by building unrealistic and negative opinions about sex.
