I'd like to go to this event.


Thursday, June 13
thinks about HARMFUL TO MINORS: The Perils of Protecting Children from
Sex. Through interviews with young people and their parents, stories
drawn from today's headlines, visits to classrooms and clinics, and a
look back at the ways sex among children and teenagers has been viewed
throughout history, Judith Levine examines and challenges widespread
anxieties (pedophilia, stranger kidnapping, Internet pornography) and
sacred cows (abstinence-based sex education, statutory rape laws).
Levine investigates the policies and practices that affect kids' sex
lives - censorship, psychology, sex and AIDS education, family,
criminal, and reproductive law, and the journalism that begs for
"solutions" while inciting more fear. Levine is a journalist,
essayist, and author of My Enemy, My Love: Women, Men, and the
Dilemmas of Gender. "Finally, THE book parents, teachers, librarians,
clergy, and health professionals need to help them educate our
children and teens about the real fact that most things about sex are
healthy and normal. In a voice that reassures the adults who care for
our children, Levine tells us why it is harmful to keep from children
the honest and critical information they need to feel and stay
physically and emotionally healthy." - Robie Harris, author of It's
Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health.
