Only 22 percent of those at risk get screened, and researchers think complacency may be why
Hmmm… I am going to go with not complacency but maybe the fact that sex ed in this country is HORRIBLE. It does not teach teens/younger people what they need to know to have a healthy sex life! Guess what, that includes teaching them about HIV and how important it is to be tested. Not just talking about vaginal-penis transmission either, but all forms of transmission.
Speaking of my paypal account…
My little brother (Of whom I am a guardian, and is pretty much my child) has his fifth birthday in two weeks. Besides totally panicking that he’s going to be going in to kindergarten way too soon, I am panicking at the fact that I haven’t near enough of this planned and I don’t know where I’m going to get the money to put this on. If you’d like to help me make my little brother’s birthday enjoyable for him please think about donating!
I was thinking about doing commissions on cloth pads. If I can get at least a $10 donation (you can donate to my Paypal at the main site http://fuckyeahsexeducation.tumblr.com/) that should be enough for me to buy the supplies to get started making them. You can request how long/wide you want them or any colors, material you want them made of. The kind I make have a pocket to make it thicker and I’ll go ahead and give you a few slips of cloth (I use terry cloth) that you can add on heavy days. I’ll have to see how much the stuff to make it will cost me, how much it’ll cost to ship, and then like maybe 3 dollars just to pay me for time before I can give a price but if anyone’s interested I can make y’all cloth pads. I could also probably make menstrual friendly boxers/briefs.
Because I’ve had people comment that they’re interested in a certain product and then not ever buy it once I spend time and money making it, I’m going to say if you want to buy one now I’m not going to make them until I least $10 in my paypal just so I can get materials. Then send me a message to talk specifics of how you want it made.
Conversation Starter of the Day
What is appropriate and healthy sexual/romantic/sensual experimentation for children? At what ages are what activities okay? What is the line between experimentation and inappropriate touching? What are your experiences either as a child or as a parent? What were your feelings about your experimentation as you got older? What would you tell child you if you could go back? What conversations do parents need to have with their children?
Also, does anyone have any resources especially for parents on healthy child experimentation? I’m going to try to compile information for parents (also the kids in my care have started experimenting with kissing and we’d like some good resources)
