I felt ineffably old today when Laurel asked me what "sexy" means.

Then I remembered giggling at that word on the back cover matter of the paperback of Life, the Universe and Everything at the same age and I felt even older.

...

In case I haven't plugged it recently, I still love Robie Harris' "It's NOT the Stork!" as an introduction to talking about human reproduction and sexuality with early elementary school-aged children. The Internet is full of people who were raised using cutesy nicknames for their anatomical parts because they're uncomfortable saying "vagina" and would rather reveal their gynecological issues to an online community than see a health care professional or get a second opinion. Please don't contribute to another generation of that.

I feel compelled to flash my Susie Bright "Clits Up!" button at this point, but I'd have to fish it out of my purse to take a picture of it. Use your imagination.

Re: Yay, sex!
Yup yup, the last beasticle I called a car had a solo bumper sticker that said 'Kill Yer Television' (good advice) but the new(er) one is graced solely by Bob Dobbs where my front license plate should be. And I prefer groveling over bowing. :)

If I was going to go renegade bumperstickering, I'd have to make some for SUVs that read "I help contribute to high gas prices and global strife! Vote Republican!" But I'm childish like that.

And feel free to steal any wit of mine that inspires you to do so. All I ask is you remember me when yer rich. :)
