From my personal analysis, I’d have to say lesbian profiles seem to fall into [...] |
|[2006-09-27] Sex-ed should address abuse, healthy relationships|
|Now that I’m all grown up, I tend to forget how awkward and frustrating it was to be a teenager. Yet for all that awkwardness, it was an amazing time of discovery.
One major discovery was the opposite sex. Boy, that was fun, but only when put into a healthy context. What happens when something goes wrong? What happens when there is no healthy context? What happens when teens find themselves in an abusive relationship?

The idea came to her during a romantic dinner in Lisbon.
