God we fuck up teenagers’ heads. We tell them that biological conditions are moral punishments and then we get all shocked when they don’t practice rational risk management of biological conditions. We teach them “sex is super desirable and all the cool kids do it, and it’s hideously shameful and will destroy your life” and we wonder why they act an eensy bit neurotic about it. If you tried to design a system for making sexually active kids confused and unsafe, you couldn’t do much better than the American media and school system.
And for once, the answer is relatively simple. Just talk about sex like it’s a part of life. Some people have sex and some people don’t, because people are different. STIs aren’t bad because they’re Dirty Crotch Rot; they’re bad because they’re contagious illnesses like strep throat or whooping cough, and you can ask a doctor to check for and treat them just like you would with strep throat. Unwanted pregnancy isn’t a scarlet A; it’s a mostly-preventable accident that sometimes occurs when people are going about their normal business of having sex. You can ask the school counselor about a variety of topics, including career planning, problems at home, questions about sex, or conflicts with teachers.
If we could just get the goddamn stick out of our collective ass and accept that sex is a human activity and teenagers are humans, maybe there wouldn’t be quite so many plaintive “I don’t understand my body and I’m confused and scared and I don’t know anyone I can ask in person” messages flying out into the world."

sassiest official blog of anything i have ever followed everyone go home
greek mythology is my favorite mythology
(it’s dark and twisted and on no terms am i excusing the terrible rape, incest and misogyny in several instances)
you read the classical texts and it’s got gems like apollo seeing the furies in his temple and telling them to go away because they’re too gross looking and dripping blood on his floor
zeus whining to eros about how it’s not fair that the girls he loves never love him back and apollo can get chicks to like him
bitchfights between every god ever
i feel like the greek gods are all just a bunch of whiny hormonal teenagers, basically
plus there’s gay couples like apollo and hyacinth, zeus and ganymede
and also weird as fuck myths such as mORE THAN ONE INSTANCE of a guy cooking up his family members and serving them as food to other people
