So Last Week 152

In the wake of last week’s tragedies (and yes, there was more than one) it sometimes seems odd to just go about business as usual. However, human nature dictats that life goes on, at least until one day when it doesn’t (and some people still believe that could be the end of this week). So, as I continue to read about what motivated a 20 year old kid to kill other children, and the importance of upping the discussion on mental health in this country, I bring you this week’s sex news you may have missed, I’ve included the Sex Positive Parent‘s piece on talking to your kids about gun violence. Plus, the new Arab manhood, parenting hits fifty shades of grey, stupid s*&t men in power still say about rape and same-sex marriage, and a surprising look at the lyrics to the seasonal classic, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
