People's sexual, marital and/or reproductive choices can harm themselves or others.
Do you have a story to tell about it? Your story matters.
Many people have made sexual, marital and/or reproductive choices that they regret. They have inadvertently harmed themselves, and
possibly other loved ones. We are building a community of people who want to understand this problem, and who want to speak out about
it. The most obvious example is abortion. There are other examples as well.
We have identified 12 kinds of people who have been harmed by our culture's embrace of sexual permissiveness.
Who are we looking for? If you've made sexual, marital and/or reproductive choices that you regret, or if you have been
harmed because of somebody else's sexual, marital and/or reproductive choices, we are looking for you. We provide online platforms
for those who are ready to tell their story. Your story might help somebody else avoid the same pain. Your story matters.
Here is one example of the kind of story you can tell. This person is a child of divorce:
"After my parents divorced, they both remarried. I was the eldest child in step-family situations on both sides. On my mother's side, a new child was born, and the entire family revolved around this new child. On my dad's side, he remarried women who had kids from prior relationships. In both instances, I felt like an 'add on' and always felt like I was standing outside, looking in. I felt like my birthright was stolen from me. I was expected to love these people and these situations, while they were not required to love my family on the opposite side. Emotionally it was a one way street--I gave love to their whole families, they gave love to half of mine, the half they occupied. The other half of my family did not exist for them. I felt very alone my entire childhood and had nobody to talk to about this inequality. My parents were not bad people but they believed that 'Everything is fine as long as the parents are happy.""
The Sexual Revolution grinds on, because normal yet hurting people don't feel comfortable speaking out. Why? Perhaps there are
new taboos against it.
Our culture is so sexualized that speaking out is not encouraged. Don't you agree that this needs to be changed? Don't you agree that people
need to feel comfortable talking about their experiences? There are three reasons why:
It will help them heal.
It will help others understand, and maybe avoid, the problem.
If others have similiar experiences, it will affirm them.
