When I was a kid, you didn't talk about sex. You just didn't.
Then, the '60s started spilling into the '70s and we were all of a sudden told (over and over and over and over...) that not to talk about...all that... was bad. It was repressed. It was unhealthy. We were supposed to talk about it all the time.
Little girls (the kids of hippies mostly, who always went around with a weird glassy kind of expression) started talking about...well, about things that little girls aren't supposed to talk about.
Teachers had to talk about it in class. Parents were supposed to talk about it to their kids. The really hip parents talked about it to their kids quite loudly on the bus. In front of the little old ladies.
We were supposed to want to go to the beach and take our clothes off to "express our rights to complete freedom". Women were supposed to want to breastfeed in public everywhere they went. We were supposed to be "proud of our bodies".
It was noisesome and excruciating. And now we can't get anyone to shut up about it.
It created a world in which one can't get away from the sight of another person's body parts, or their Free and Uninhibited Personal Expressions of Who They Really Are.
So, I've got a request to make for the world.
Can we please STOP TALKING ABOUT SEX?!!
Whatever happened to the weather?
