Sex Ed

without comments

The other day I was in my car and listening to some local radio where a woman was complaining about sex education in schools. And it got me to wondering about how parents are handling that now that so much of public education has been thrown back into the hands of parents now. Do they have good resources at their discretion? And I thought about how nice it might be to create a few videos to cover some basics there, as a tool for parents or other educators to use. If you did it right, and got a videographer, a few experts to cover some basics, and with my skill set I could definitely create an animation to go into some of the cellular stuff. You could cover basic reproduction broad strokes. You could have a video specifically catered to homosexual sex. You could go through basic protections, how they work, and why they are important, and how STD or pregnancy testing work. I would love to find a grant for something like that. We have so many experienced educators and speakers on matters of sexual education here in Austin. The local series Bedpost Confessions has really encouraged that and made it visible. I think it would be very possible to create something to help with young people and educators here.
