"My goal is to give my sons the tools to handle situations as they arise, even when I’m not necessarily going to be there in that moment to guide them.

I want to ensure that when their friends say or do something that is a product of or feeds into rape culture or sexism, they will be able to speak up and stand up when it counts.

Because if we want to change rape culture in meaningful and lasting ways, one very important key is educating our youth."
As a feminist, an activist, a parent of two boys, and a sexual health educator, I struggle with how to balance my sensibilities with my parenting style. And an issue that I am very connected to is rape culture. How does a parent compete with the constant assault of stereotypes and overwhelming sex-negative messaging in the media? Here are a few suggestions.

Cool infographic from Pew Research on the six types of Twitter conversations.

Have you ever wondered what a Twitter conversation looks like from 10,000 feet?

A group of us went there for the seven course degustation. The atmosphere was fun, the service was excellent, and the food was really good - particularly the crumbed mushrooms with goats cheese, beef goulash, veal schnitzel, and Hungarian sausage. We're looking forward to going back for more schnitzel!

We got locked out of our apartment at night (around 9pm) and Justin arrived in about half an hour to drill the lock out and replace its inner cylinder. Our job was originally assigned to Sean, who was on another job at the time. However, when Justin discovered Sean's other job was going to take a while, he came over himself. He was friendly and efficient and really saved the day. I would highly recommend Top Locksmith.
