Time to play chess, not checkers, with Bannon/Trump

by Guest Blogger: Nadine Smith, Executive Director, Equality Florida After my 8th invitation in two days to Emergency Calls, I thought it wise to pause and reflect on how we avoid the Whack-A-Mole trap and focus our energies. In addition to the electoral strategies in 2018 and 2020 that we have to build starting now,…

Woodhull Freedom Foundation Joins Global Call to Defend the UN Human Rights Council

Woodhull Freedom Foundation, along with 798 civil society organizations, representing 156 countries, submitted a letter to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations opposing resolution A/C.3/ 71/L.46. The Human Rights Council is responsible for the promotion and protection of human rights around the world. If passed, resolution A/C.3/ 71/L.46 sets a worrying precedent for…

Progressive Policies Make Families Stronger

A newly released report from the Center for American Progress confirms what many of us may already know, that strong families are linked to access to resources and financial stability. Family stability has been tied to the following progressive policies: increasing the minimum wage, strengthening collective bargaining, expanding Medicaid and supporting reproductive rights.

Baby Steps: In Brooke S.B. v. Elizabeth C.C. New York Highest Court Expands The Meaning of “Parenthood”; (but insists on a maximum of two)

Being a parent used to be easy.  Not the job, of course — I doubt that’s ever been easy — I mean being a legal parent of a child, with all the responsibilities and rights that go along with that, including the right to ask a court for custody or visitation in case of divorce. …

Asexuality Awareness and The Right to Family

Last week was Asexuality Awareness Week, an international campaign to educate communities about asexual, aromantic, demisexual, grey-asexual experiences. In honor of the shared stories about asexuality that have been circulating through cyberspace, I want to talk about what the asexual community is doing for human rights, specifically the right to family. The Asexual Portraits Collaboration…

5 Ways to Advocate for Human Rights

As sexual freedom activists, there is never a question of the amount of work to be done. Two weeks ago we learned of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s raid on Rentboy.com (which some are calling the “Stonewall of Sex Work”). Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples,…

Pioneers of pleasure and freedom, like Nina Hartley and Buck Angel, will be there alongside novice activists to collaborate and learn from each other. We’re so…

Expanding the Conversation about Sex Ed Reform

When we talk about sex education reform, the discussion is often a two-sided debate between teaching adolescents about sex or teaching them to wait until marriage. As of January 2015, only 19 states have a policy that requires their sex education programs to be “medically accurate,” the definition of which varies from state to state….

Raw Deal: The Unseen (And Unjust) Struggle Over Child Support

Editor’s Note: Recently on Sex In The Public Square I posted a critique of the criminalization of poor parents who fall behind on their child support. Today I’ve invited a dear friend, someone I’ve known since the 6th grade, to share a guest post that describes the frustration she experiences as a single mother denied…
