sex ed commentary

Edit: Among other things, here's her article at The Stranger

This is awesome. Alice Dreger sat in on her son's abstinence based sex ed class, and live-tweeted it.

Other excerpts:

Her book, Galileo's Middle Finger: Heretics, Activists, and the Search for Justice in Science, looks pretty good, and her Twitter stream says she's got an essay about the experience coming soon to The Stranger, will link when that happens.

Alice Dreger: This is not the week I expected to have.

And that MeFi thread has turned somewhat contentious based on some comments Alice Dreger has made about transsexual/intersex issue. I'm reading, and trying to understand, but don't have any links to recommend yet.
