I fully wondered that when I looked her up just now and saw she’s in Portland :heart_eyes: dude I now have “tour of Portland to meet all the seriously cool people” on my bucket list.

Word. That’s great. I don’t know if we had the internet at the house then, but if not, we did shortly after.
I don’t think I ever admitted to being under 18 on any porn site ever, which was probably a big part of the problem. Ha.

It probably helped that I volunteered at the HIV/AIDS clinic when I was in high school so I had a way higher level of exposure to resources like that. We had abstinence-only sex ed (and hetero-only to boot, beyond hearing that all gays would get AIDS and die) - in school because Ohio sucks, so most sex ed came from peers or the internet. Peers were not reliable.

My apologies.

I’m from the city, but the most conservative top 35 city in the country, and the only conservative majority-african american city. YAY CINCINNATI!!!

I skated with the daughter of the representative that:

  1. made it illegal to transport a woman outside state lines in Ohio for an abortion and
  2. reversed comprehensive sex ed in all Ohio public schools to be abstinence-only sex ed
  3. passed a school prayer bill
  4. passed the bill that allowed students to opt out of evolution in science class for religious reasons

I mentioned this elsewhere, but the “A Mighty Girl” website may have a bunch of age appropriate resources including books.
