PSA post: First of a lovingly irregular series

I’m continually being made aware of sex resources and good/urgent sexuality causes that need attention, so I’m starting an irregular (because that’s apparently how I roll) feature, the Public Service Announcement post. Here are your three today:

* Kink Aware Professionals — a resource for finding psychotherapeutic, medical, and legal professionals who are informed about the diversity of consensual, adult sexuality. (See also, book Health Care Without Shame.)

* A new parenting guidebook I’ve just read and highly recommend: The Transgender Child. Helps also when you need to talk to your non-trans kid about their different friends. (No, don’t worry, I’m fixed.)

* Rags-to-Pads. Please dear mother Mary with a tampon made of manger hay, please help these women and young girls. The situation for Indian women who menstruate is horrifying, and this couple has a great plan to help. Tell Oprah, m’kay?

  1. I just had a look-see at the Rags-to-Pads site, and though a noble cause, nowhere do they indicate what materials they plan to use in their hygienic sanitary pads. This concerns me, as many products sold in more developed countries contain hazardous chemicals, not to mention disposable pads are a huge waste. It seems to me that the general sanitary conditions should be improved; such as, access to clean water, handling of waste, and so on. It’s like a band-aid for a gaping wound, but if it helps a few ladies, good luck to them.
