Hey all you sex-positive feminists! Now that Sassy is gone, wouldn't it be nice if there was a smart, hip, witty, frank publication for teens explaining sex? One that talked about consent, self-esteem, STDs, and contraception in a way that teens would actually read? It's easy for us to be complacent about this stuff: in much of the country, parents, schools, bookstores, and libraries seem to think that if we tell teens boring lies about sex, they won't take and interest in the subject. Lots of kids out there hungry for information, alas.
Someone smart has done the hard work, and given us Scarleteen — Sex Education for the Real World on the Web. It's very cleverly done. Another step toward sex-positive feminist victory!
