Typically women in the U.S. are on the losing end of an uneven division of labor. We are expected to give a f*ck about everything. This isn’t only for those that are parents or in heterosexual marriages. These rigid gender roles seep in at work, in school, in friendships, etc– even when we’re consciously trying to break free of them. In this episode, Airial Clark teaches us How to Be a Woman And Not Give a F*ck. It’s a must listen no matter your gender. Airial also tackles sex-positive parenting with us– when and how should you start to your kids about sex? What’s the best way to teach bodily autonomy and privacy but still parent effectively? How do you introduce sex-positive parenting when your kids are already teens? Ken & Sunny discuss unsolicited dick pics and the demand for well-endowed sex workers.
Airial Clark, MA is a San Francisco Bay Area-based educator and consultant specializing in intersectional awareness, parenting coach and sexual health educator. She began facilitating parent support programs as an undergraduate at U.C. Berkeley where she graduated with a double major in Anthropology and English Literature while raising her two sons as a queer, single parent. She then went on to earn her Master’s degree in the social justice focussed human sexuality studies program at San Francisco State University. In 2012, she created an international sexual health and parent education resource: The Sex-Positive Parent. Airial empowers parents and families of all shapes and sizes to become more informed and empathetic when teaching their children about boundaries, consent, gender and sexuality. In October 2017, Airial created another intersectional empowerment resource: How To Be A Woman & Not Give A Fuck. This workshop series exists to support all women in countering gendered expectations that impact women negatively. She focuses on the diverse lived experiences of all women in order to effectively address invisible labor, compassion fatigue and gaslighting in both personal and professional settings. She is currently on an international workshop taking the workshop to 13 cities in 2 countries.
