things i needed to hear in health class:

  • puberty might make you squishier and its ok
  • vaginas have a smell and it’s a ok
  • all kinds of people with all kinds of bodies have gr8 sex
  • genitals do not all look the same and variety is rad
  • people have stretch marks sometimes
  • people have pimples on their butts sometimes
  • people have cellulite sometimes
  • gender =/= sex
  • sex =/= scary danger FEAR
  • bodies aren’t scary or gross or sacred 
  • everything is ok
  • you don’t have to bleed and it doesn’t have to hurt the first time you have sex. ‘Popping the cherry’ is a myth. Preparation and lubrication is always useful no matter what.
  • The majority of women will have uneven breasts. It can be very slight or pronounced, and all are beautiful.
