17 Lies We Need to Stop Teaching Girls About Sex

17 Lies We Need to Stop Teaching Girls About Sex
Whether it's the constant fretting over Miley Cyrus' influence on school girls or the growing (and troubling) tradition of Purity Balls, it's clear that society has a fascination with young women's sexuality — especially when it comes to controlling it. But what are we actually teaching today's girls about sex? Fueled by outdated ideals of gender roles and the sense that female sexuality is somehow shameful, there seem to be certain pernicious myths about girls and sex that just won't die. That sex education in America has gaping holes in its curriculum hasn't helped much, either; in a recent Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report just 6 out of 10 girls said that their schools' sex ed program included information on how to say no to sex. Knowledge is power, and we can promote a healthier relationship with sex by encouraging a more open dialogue, teaching girls to feel comfortable with their sexuality and, most importantly, emphasizing that their bodies are theirs and theirs alone.

Experts say a gear rail appears to be manufactured, and not the result of natural forces. According to Yulia Zamanskaya, when a resident of Vladivostok was lighting the fire during a cold winter evening, he found a rail-shaped metal device which was pressed in one of the pieces of coal that the man used to heat his home. Mesmerized by his discovery, the responsible citizen decided to seek help from the scientists of Primorye region. After the metal object was studied by the leading experts, the man was shocked to learn about the assumed age of his discovery. The metal artefact was supposedly 300 million years old, and the scientists suggested that it was not created by nature, but was rather manufactured by someone. The question of who might have made an aluminum gear in the dawn of time remains unanswered.

Why It Really Doesn’t Matter How Many People You’ve Slept With He rolls off me and does the awkward condom removal maneuver before he climbs back in my bed, nestles in a bit and asks, “So what’s your number?” “What do you mean?” “Well, you seem like this isn’t your first song and dance. What number am I?” I don’t know. At this point it’s all a statistic. How many did I love? How many was I actually in a committed relationship with? The year I lost track of the number? Does it matter if you’re safe about it? If I had to guess, the number is somewhere between salacious and apathy, between someday, I’ll have a boyfriend and like I’m going in for the kill. When I tell him I don’t know, his face changes from curiosity to disgust. My blatant lack of virginity is not out of personal disrespect. Sex is not the deciding factor in morality or human compassion. And I own my self-respect. Maybe I wish I was loved more and fucked less, but it is what it is. My roommate is in the kitchen making tea. I snort and shake my head, “No.”

US Workers Were Once Massacred Fighting for the Protections Being Rolled Back Today | The Long View Editor’s note: Sunday marked the 100th anniversary of the Ludlow Massacre. For more information about this landmark event in US labor history, visit PBS’ “American Experience.” On April 20, 1914, the Colorado National Guard and a private militia employed by the Colorado Fuel & Iron Company (CF&I) opened fire on a tent camp of striking coal miners at Ludlow, Colo. At least 19 people died in the camp that day, mostly women and children. A century later, the bloody incident might seem a relic of the distant past, but the Ludlow Massacre retains a powerful, disturbing and growing relevance to the present. After a century of struggling against powerful interests to make American workplaces safer and corporations responsive to their employees, the US is rapidly returning to the conditions of rampant exploitation that contributed to Ludlow. Conditions were deadly inside the mines. A century ago, miners led the fight for workers’ rights. Colorado Fuel and Iron, part of John D. Like John D.

Länder Un-Memorizing the “Silence is Sexy” Date Script | Queer Guess Code A woman once told me pointedly something that has stayed with me to this day. We were kissing. Lying on the cold wood floor, my hand traveled across her stomach and she whispered, “I think we should take it slow.” I agreed immediately. Before moving in to kiss her again, I said, “Just tell me when to stop.” This, I thought, was considerate. In essence, what she said was, “Women are not given enough opportunities to say ‘yes.’” Oh, I thought. We’ve gotten the idea from movies and magazines that silence is sexy. But here’s the thing. But “just say no” isn’t enough. Even more troubling is the possibility that a woman might not know how or when to put the brakes on, and by simply hesitating for too long, could end up doing any variety of things against her innermost wishes. Soooooo what alternatives do we have? Here’s an idea. Silence is only sexy because we like to assume that everybody is on the same page! And it doesn’t have to impact dominance or submission either.

The World Bank Wants to Privatize the One Thing We Can't Live Without Putting corporations in charge of something as vital as water may sound cartoonish. But it's no hook for a dystopia story: The World Bank, which offers "loans, advice, and other resources" to developing countries, is recommending that water management be a privatized industry. Some might argue that the private sector can eliminate inefficiencies and support smart government spending. However privatizing water — or, more precisely, the infrastructure that cleans and delivers it — is bad for the consumer. When your Internet doesn't work, that's a pain and an inconvenience, but it doesn't mean that your health or your life are in danger. Dehydration, waterborne illnesses, clean waste disposal and the ability to grow crops further prove that access to water can mean the difference between a society that thrives sand one that totally fails. According to the World Bank's data, 34% of private water and sewage contracts in World Bank projects completed between 2000 and 2010 are in distress.
