This is what we, or those individuals on the planet whom are comfortable with sexuality, can discuss it in an adult manner are up against.
The Conservative mindset.

Yes, I am an Australian. So why the hell am I posting articles about legislation being enacted in effing Tennessee?
Well, we have our fair share of conservatives out here also. I have spoken previously about one whom I converse with regularly and am constantly amazed as to how they formulate the ideas in their mind about sexuality.
We may actually be heading towards a Conservative government if the Australian Labor Party continue to dissolve in front of our eyes?
Well, we certainly wont evolve any further down the same-sex marriage path I would think. And as for sex-education…that would stay well clear of the curriculum I am also prepared to state as an outcome.
I just dont get it. What is it about sex that people are afraid of?
And who is driving this fear…a. the Church?, b. The State?, c. our collective upbringings?, d. a little of all three and more?
Are we content seeing issue after issue spewed across the news on a regular basis about sexual assault, or sex-trafficking or youth pregnancy, pedophilia or blah, blah, blah?
We must be?
I just dont get it and probably never will.
