Unpopular Opinion: Sex Ed Edition – Ep 84 American Sex Podcast

Dirty Lola Jimanekia Eborn Podcast Sex EdOn episode 84 of American Sex Podcast, you’re a fly on the wall during a candid conversation between Dirty Lola, Jimanekia Eborn & Sunny Megatron. What started as a twitter debate opened the door to a much larger, systemic issue in both the sex ed community and the world at large. We examine what happens when our well-meaning feminist activism leads way to paternalism, savior complexes, and intersectionality that’s more of a buzzword than something that’s widely understood. We touch on performative allyship vs being an accomplice, when it’s appropriate to speak up on issues affecting marginalized communities and when “stay in your lane” applies, how anti-blackness rears its head even in the most liberal communities, and more. Take a deep breath, listeners, there’s a lot to unpack in this episode.
