hey my name is sarah and i like dmb and feminism ♀ and lil bub and arrested development and the bugle and makeup and talking about sex. i say "ok" and "basically" a lot and i am absolutely hilarious (hilarious i tell you) and i'm sure there's a few other things

testimonials:

you do really cool eyeliner and look mean sometimes! - matt

i love you, and also i am terrified of your wrath - willy

hottie(s) checking me out

maybe I’m just too far immersed in my own culture of sex positivity to fully understand, but when it comes to sexual relationships - particularly teen sexual relationships - where everyone is being safe and everything is consensual, I don’t see what the big deal is.

I get, up to a certain point, why parents would be concerned about their children having sex, etc. - there’s definitely an issue of safety. but that’s just more reason to talk about it, for Christ’s fucking sake!

I’ve heard from my friends and I’ve listened to the way my mom talks to me about sex and we’ve been able to come to a general consensus about one thing. this worry that they have is not about safety. our parents aren’t trying to educate us. they’re shaming us, making us feel as if our sexuality is the problem rather than the society in which we are being raised. they make us feel as if we can’t control ourselves, as if we don’t know what’s best for is, as if our decisions aren’t really our own.

this is not acting within our best interests.

if not safety, then, why are parents so afraid of their children being sexually active? because it cannot be mere fear for safety - if that were really it, more parents would make sure that their children get the facts. that is not the goal of making sure we are never unsupervised with people we could be attracted to.

because - here’s the thing - so what? if two teens have safe, consensual sex, what is the big fucking deal? it’s something that I can’t wrap my head around.
