The Critical Intersection of Race & Sex for Parents
Welcome to The Critical Intersection of Sex & Race for Parents
This online course is focused on white parents unpacking the culture of sexuality and race they were raised with. Our curiosity-based classes will offer a balanced awareness of your own sexuality and the culture you are bringing to your children.
Our intention is to become aware of the positionality of your sexuality, historically and culturally, as well as the default narratives that have shaped your unconscious beliefs. Examining and questioning these default narratives will empower you to interrupt the often unspoken harm in our culture around sexuality and racism for the next generation.
This is just the beginning of the journey…each section is a starting point to getting curious with your communities and families.
Supporting each other as parents
It’s easy for us to judge each other and ourselves as parents, to critique each other rather than build each other up…and in turn we critique ourselves. We invite you to take this course with other parents or in community and to interrupt the judgment and isolation that parents often face. You are encouraged in this course to create and hone your own content for your children. We are here to think with you, not to criticize you.
Why sex education?
Sex education and anti-racism are two often ignored aspects of parenting for white parents, but are also the two areas that most likely will impact children of color in your child’s present and future. When we connect over difficult topics like anti-racism in sex education for our children, it ripples out into other parts of our parenting plans and benefits our anti-racism thinking for us and our family.
