The Sex Ed We Need

oh hey congress you see us!

So this would seem not even gender-related, but there’s an awesome and sassily-named sex ed bill in Congress right now, called the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act of 2011. It is totally comprehensive and just epically worded, and check out this gem:

” [the education must] cover a broad range of topics, including medically accurate, complete, age and developmentally appropriate information about all the aspects of sex needed for a complete sex education program, including–…

(v) gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation…”

Look! We are up in there!

I’m so excited. If you are too, you can do a bit of activism and email the representative from your voting area. Do that in an absurdly easy way here. And read the rest of the text of the bill here.
