After allegations of First Amendment violations, Katy ISD restored student access to websites that serve LGBTQ+ youth.

High school students are now allowed to visit websites aimed at LGBTQ+ communities, including the suicide prevention nonprofit, The Trevor Project. Katy ISD’s policy reversal follows a formal complaint from students and a letter of support from the ACLU of Texas against their third-party internet software filter on “alternative sexual lifestyles”.

CONTEXT: Katy ISD blocks LGBTQ+ resources and student suicide prevention websites

District officials have previously defended the practice of blocking certain websites, citing its obligation to follow the federal Children’s Internet Protection Act, which requires schools to censor obscene images for minors.

Cameron Samuels, now a graduate of Seven Lakes High School who filed the formal complaint, said the policy change was a step in the right direction.

“I see this as a victory,” Samuels, who is now studying politics at Brandeis University in Massachusetts, said Thursday by phone. “I am so proud to see that the hard work we have put in over these months has paid off.”

Casey Pick, senior researcher for advocacy and government affairs for The Trevor Project, said suicide prevention should never be controversial.

“LGBTQ youth are more than four times more likely to attempt suicide than their peers, and our research shows that over 80% of LGBTQ youth said it was important for a crisis line to focus on LGBTQ youth,” she said. “This is exactly the kind of service The Trevor Project provides 24/7 and for free.”

Pick said the organization urges all schools and youth-serving organizations to learn more about the nonprofit’s work and work to increase access instead of restricting it.

“We are grateful to everyone who spoke out against the absurdity of blocking Trevor’s student crisis services — especially the many student advocates who spoke out for themselves,” she said.

Katy ISD did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the outcome of the formal complaint or the ACLU’s allegations. However, Maria Corrales DiPetta, general manager of media relations for KISD, confirmed last week that high school students can now access the Trevor Project website.

“With respect to the website in question, its content was recently reassessed as part of standard District practice, as well as in response to a request for review,” she said. “The site was deemed acceptable and made accessible via district Wi-Fi, with the exception of the chat functionality. The site’s chat room functionality is available to minors and adults and has therefore been restricted by district Wi-Fi as per guidelines (of the Children’s Internet Protection Act).

INVESTIGATION: Most push to ban books in Texas schools came from politician and GOP pressure, not parents

Brian Klosterboer, attorney for the ACLU of Texas, said most districts in the United States and Texas have taken steps to remove these filters created by third-party vendors years ago.

“It is deeply regrettable that it has taken a year of incredible activism and advocacy by Cameron and other students to bring these issues to light,” he said. “Katy ISD seems unique in how long it took to remove discriminatory web filters.”

In November, an analysis by the Houston Chronicle revealed that KISD had blocked several websites of organizations serving LGBTQ+ children, such as the Trevor Project; the Montrose center, a Houston nonprofit with youth services and support groups; and campaign and human rights defendera source of information focused on the LGBTQ+ community.

Of the six other Houston-area districts that responded to a Chronicle survey, including Barbers Hill, Fort Bend, Aldine and Friendswood ISDs, none blocked the Trevor Project website to high school students.

At the time, a KISD spokesperson said its third-party Internet filtering software was based on predetermined categories that comply with the Children’s Internet Protection Act.

In April, the ACLU of Texas and Lambda Legal sent the district a letter in support of the formal complaint filed by Samuels. Their correspondence alleged that the district was violating students’ First Amendment rights, citing court precedent.

“Katy ISD’s filtering software appears to be misconfigured to block websites providing critical information and resources to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (“LGBTQ+”) students in a discriminatory manner,” it read. in the letter.

In a 2012 ACLU reportthe organization said it discovered that many districts across the country had web filters that specifically blocked websites with LGBTQ+ content, often without administrators knowing.

“Today, nearly every school district nationwide, including here in Texas, removed these discriminatory web filters that automatically block LGBTQ+ students from accessing essential information and resources,” the letter read. ACLU. “Federal law requires Katy ISD to follow suit and update its web filtering software to meet its constitutional obligations, provide the best possible learning environment for its students, and not discriminate or deny equal access essential resources for LGBTQ+ students.”

The web filtering company used by KISD, ContentKeeper, has a category called “Alternative Sexual Lifestyles (GLBT) Global,” according to district documents. In 2021, the name of the filter was changed to “Human Sexuality”, according to the district.

“Despite the name change, the Human Sexuality category continued to block LGBTQ+ websites,” Leslie Hack, deputy district superintendent, said in a written response to Samuel’s complaint.

Hack said in the response that none of the blocked websites in this category display pornography, adding that another filter called “Adult Content” blocks student access to pornographic images.

In January, the district continued to block websites for the Trevor Project, The Lawyer and Outsmart Magazine to students, but allowed access to some previously blocked sites, including the Montrose Center, the Human Rights Campaign man and PFLAG.

KISD also asked students to submit individual support tickets to request the unblocking of specific sites, according to the letter from the ACLU.

“Requiring students to submit individual support tickets…is not a solution to this problem either, but unacceptably forces LGBTQ+ students to ‘walk out’ and face an intimidating and discriminatory burden for access critical information,” the letter said.

The ACLU and Lambda Legal have also challenged whether students can access websites that advocate restricting LGBTQ+ rights, including Breitbart, Texas Values, and ADFLegal.

“The inconsistency of KISD’s web filtering software is shocking and particularly harmful to LGBTQ+ students,” the letter reads. “If Katy ISD students can freely access websites and information that are harmful to LGBTQ+ students, there is no reason to ban students from an essential resource like the Trevor Project that has the power to literally save the lives of LGBTQ+ students.”

After a district investigation, Hack said in August she granted Samuels’ request and said the internet filtering system would be changed to completely remove the “Human Sexuality” category, making previously blocked websites accessible to high school students. .

According to the ACLU, the district has also created a process for elementary and middle school students to request that specific sites be unblocked at those levels.

“It’s not the full outcome we wanted, but to see that high school students can now access vital resources to assert their identity is wonderful,” Samuels said.

This book is gay
Juno Dawson

Presentation text:

There’s a long-standing joke that after “coming out,” a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or trans person should receive a membership card and an instruction manual. THIS IS THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL. You’re welcome.

“This Book Is Gay” is one of many books for young adults targeted by right-wing culture warriors. They view it and other LGBTQ-themed books as insidious pro-gay propaganda designed to lure girls and boys into sex deviant and transgenderism. This particular book, billed as a “how-to” for LGBTQ youth (see blurb above), has been in their sights for several years.

Since its publication in 2014, “This Book Is Gay” has been challenged, and sometimes banned, from classrooms and school libraries in several states. In 2021, the American Library Association listed it as the ninth most disputed title in the United States A notable challenge and resulting ban was recorded in 2016, when the Wasilla Public Library, Alaska, was forced to move its entire young adult non-fiction collection to restricted shelves in response to community threats about “This Book Is Gay”:

Several Wasilla residents attacked the book at a city council meeting saying that “they didn’t want any ‘gay books’ or books about homosexuals in the library at all.” For defending the teen sex education book, the library director was branded a pedophile in highly controversial public debates.

My comments:

“This Book Is Gay” is at its best to provide useful information for curious gay boys and teens; less so for other groups on the LGBTQ spectrum. Several reviews on Amazon and Goodreads say the same, judging by comments posted by lesbian, bisexual, fluid, non-binary, and asexual readers. To be fair, Juno herself admits that she’s stronger in some areas than others.

The main aim of ‘This Book Is Gay’ is to help young people who suspect or know they are different feel better about being different, with helpful tips on how to find friends who feel the same. thing. In this, the book is similar to several other LGBTQ-themed YA books attacked across the country.

Juno goes a step further, however, offering specific, practical advice on how to find and meet like-minded people to socialize and have sex with. Some of his advice is geared specifically to high school teens. She candidly describes the different ways gay men and women bring their partners to orgasm. It includes illustrations (not sex acts, but bodies), less graphic than those of “Fun Home” and “Gender Queer”, graphic novels that feature in other book ban attempts.

Juno includes chapters on the dangers of gay promiscuity, STIs, genital diseases and AIDS, and includes a thoughtful final chapter with advice for parents of children who come out as gay and/or transgender. The overall tone is friendly, intimate and upbeat: Juno is an experienced gay person with answers, encouragement and advice for gay and bi-curious teens, a Dan Savage for the youngest.

By contrast, Juno downplays the very legitimate fears of kids considering going out. Regardless of the countries and cultures where being gay or transgender is literally illegal, even punishable by death, gay children in North America and Europe are still ostracized, sometimes thrown on the streets by their own parents, rejected by old friends and churches. It happens all the time, even today. Yes, Juno lists the countries where being gay will get you killed, advising children in Nigeria, for example, to stay in the closet for their own good, but in the next and subsequent chapters she sheds light on those concerns and those promises readers that coming out will be one of the most positive and liberating experiences they will ever have. From my own observation as an outsider, coming out can be dangerous, even for children from liberal enclaves within tolerant Western societies.

I love that Juno addresses the importance of vocabulary, including acknowledging that tortured constructs like “cisgender” and “cishet” come from wanting to separate sexual orientation and gender identity from the tyranny of “normal.” When the default majority sexual orientation and gender identity are labeled as normal, what remains quickly becomes “abnormal” and eventually “deviant.” I understand that and always have, but apparently a lot of people don’t, so in a book about gender identity and sexual orientation, it’s worth pointing out to straight readers, uh, cishet how harmful and discriminatory vocabulary choices can be.

Why this book should stay on high school and public library shelves, unrestricted access to teenage readers:

High school students already have access to tons of information about gay sex, gay lifestyles, sexual orientation, gender identity, and how to change it. Not to mention the access to straight, bi and gay pornography online. If my long-time experience as a teenager in high school is any guide, teenagers today have already studied this stuff, and more.

You can’t call anything pornographic in “This Book Is Gay” and still keep a straight face. Juno describes basic sex acts clinically, but never lasciviously. You can pretty much read the same kind of stuff in any other advice book for gay and transgender youth, not that there’s a whole lot out there (which is why Juno wrote the book first venue).

It can happen sideways, but I applaud when Billy Bob Thornton puts on a CPAP mask at night on the TV series Goliath. When I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, I felt a strange, shameful weakness, something akin to erectile dysfunction. And you’ve never seen anyone sleeping with a CPAP on TV. After Goliath, I felt less alone, less embarrassed.

You don’t know how important representation is until you’re the isolated minority, finally seeing people like you in books and on screen. Imagine how empowering and empowering those early prime-time television series featuring black actors were for black viewers. Or how important books like “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian” are to Native American children. Or how meaningful and affirming “This Book Is Gay” will be for thousands of scared gay and transgender kids, each of whom thinks they’re the only kid in the world with the same feelings. Wouldn’t you rather they read “This book is gay” than log on to Pornhub? (As if we didn’t all know they would do both and there was nothing we could do about it anyway.)

I leave you with a link to a recent news. This is a prominent member of the main group urging angry “parents” and gun-toting Proud Boy thugs to disrupt school and library board meetings to protest “This Book Is Gay” and other LGBTQ books: Moms for Liberty activist wants LGBTQ students to be separated into special classes.

Because that’s what it’s all about. It’s not the books. It’s never the books. They are looking for children who are different. How will you react when they come after yours?


ps If you decide to read the book yourself and look for a copy in your library or on Amazon, you might be confused by early editions listing “James Dawson” as the author. Dawson was a gay man at the time of writing and publication. She has since made the transition and new editions bear her new name, Juno Dawson. Speaking of the author, here’s a link to his thoughts on the attacks on “This Book Is Gay”: “I wrote the ninth most banned book in America. It sucks.

pps As part of my You Can’t Read That! project, I read and review banned books, many of which are at the center of protests and disputes. You can see a full index of these reviews on my Shelf of banned books by Goodreads.

For a society rife with sexual content, we’re still pretty bad at having sensitive, nuanced, and factual conversations about our own sex lives with the people we’re intimate with.

The subject of sex rings alarm bells in our minds and inhibits open dialogue. This is of particular concern when sex life causes psychological distress.

Here are three possible signs that it might be time to make sex a topic of conversation with your partner.

#1. Is your partner just conforming for you, or vice versa?

We are taught that compromises and adjustments for the sake of a relationship are to be appreciated. But what happens when we bring the same philosophy to our sex lives and try to achieve narratives we may not want?

Generally, this does not go well for the relationship. Yet it’s more common than you might think, even in men. A study Posted in Psychology and sexuality tracked rates of sexual conformity (consensual but unwanted sexual activity) among heterosexual men and found that approximately 60% of men in their sample engaged in mild acts of sexual conformity with their partners over a 12-month period .

In other words, sexual conformity is widespread among both men and women. Although the root of the behavior is altruistic in nature, it can harm the quality of your relationship, your sexual satisfaction, and even your mental health.

Educating yourself about gender stereotypes and unlearning the conditioning of “martyrdom” to self-sacrifice so that you can invite or refuse sexual activity according to your wishes can help you lay the foundation for a healthier relationship.

#2. Is porn consumption a hindrance?

Navigating porn in a romantic relationship can be tricky. Here’s what the latest research has to say about this complicated question.

On average, solitary pornography use was negatively associated with factors such as relationship and sexual satisfaction.

On the other hand, some couples who watch porn together experience greater short-term sexual satisfaction. There are several possible reasons for this, such as:

  1. Shared pornography consumption could indicate similar sexual attitudes, sexual preferences, and libido. Generally speaking, people who are more alike have better relationships.
  2. It’s also possible that simply engaging in a shared romance and exciting activity with a spouse or partner, such as watching porn together, can relieve relationship boredom and rekindle sexual interest (not sexual) for each other.
  3. Shared consumption of pornography can also lead to increased sexual communication and experimentation, resulting in increased enthusiasm for sex.

According to researcher Taylor Kohut, what ultimately matters is whether you and your partner are on the same page when it comes to porn consumption and sex in general. The differences in porn use make it pretty clear that you might not be.

#3. Is pleasure distorted?

Recent to research Posted in Evolutionary behavioral sciences reports that about 50% of men experience an orgasm every time they have sex. For women, that number is only about 4%. Other to research published in the Sexual Behavior Archives reports that these percentages are around 75% for heterosexual men and 33% for heterosexual women.

This phenomenon, known as orgasm gap, is more common in heterosexual couples than in bisexual and homosexual couples.

This means that the female orgasm is supposed to be harder to achieve than it is, simply because it is biologically different from the male orgasm. The solution: acts of sexual variety.

According to research, you can use the following steps to close the orgasm gap:

  1. Oral and manual stimulation is the key to female orgasm
  2. Wearing sexy lingerie/undies, incorporating mini massages/back massages, trying a new sex position, or taking a shower or bath together increases the odds of reaching orgasm for both men and women

In summary, the orgasm gap can be narrowed by addressing socio-cultural factors and engaging in a wider variety of activities during intimacy.

Conclusion

Sexual health and intimacy are integral to the health and longevity of a relationship (and even your own mental health). Cultivating a safe space for open conversation and space for experimentation can have benefits that go far beyond your sex life.

daily progress

Schools have opened in Virginia, but the return to the classroom has not brought the usual calls for excellence in education or even a return to basics. Attempts by Christian nationalists and right-wing ideologues to impose their views on the state have now turned public education into a petri dish for propaganda.

Albemarle County became the target of one of the first moves of this strategy when the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian advocacy fund backed by tens of millions of conservative dollars, attacked the county’s anti-racism program as racist. . The ADF filed a lawsuit on behalf of a handful of parents whose children were allegedly deprived of their religious freedom under a pilot program that no longer exists. A district court judge dismissed the case saying the parents could not show how their children were injured. But the case is on appeal and still hangs over the school system like a sword of Damocles.

People also read…

The same goes for a second case brought by the ADF against Albemarle for abusing an assistant director who mistakenly used the term “people of color” instead of “people of color”. This lawsuit also remains unsolved.

Together, these cases divert attention from the basic education of students and cost taxpayers money.

Albemarle is not the only place where contentious groups and politicians attached to a conservative religious regime have turned the administration of schools into a battleground. At the request of Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin, many rural school boards have officially voted to ban the teaching of what Youngkin derisively and incorrectly calls “critical race theory”. It’s a catch-all term that sweeps up all sorts of racial discussions, many of which weren’t taking place in predominantly white rural counties in the first place.

In Loudon County, a heavily populated and racially and ethnically diverse area outside of Washington, D.C., so-called “family values” advocates raise Cain during class discussions about race, sex and gender identity by going to court to try to remove sitting members of the school board.

Much of the animosity of Christian nationalists translates into attacks on any school curriculum that touches on gender or takes into consideration people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or have other forms of personal identity that differ from theocracy they seek.

Although the ADF filed a lawsuit on behalf of a West Point teacher who was fired for refusing to call a student by student-adopted pronouns with their gender identity, a large Part of this push toward a religious model for public schools is reflected in attacks on school library books. . These continue to occur throughout the state and sometimes result in the restriction of all children’s access to books in the public library. These books sometimes involve themes of American racism by famous black authors like Nobel laureate Toni Morrison. But Christian nationalists inevitably point to sex and sexual identity as the subject that children should not discuss in school or in public libraries.

Parents must absolutely be able to refuse the material to which their children have access. That’s what the concept of family values ​​is really about. But the battle for the book has now evolved into outright censorship, with advocates of religious piety demanding to make the decisions for everyone. This includes a pair of Spotsylvania County School Board members, one of whom now chairs the board, calling for library books with what they deem to be “sexually explicit” content to be burned.

We will address the ultra-right takeover of the Spotsylvania School Board in another op-ed. Suffice it to say, the Christian Nationalist school disruptions across the state are by no means isolated.

Case in point: At a Virginia Beach school board meeting earlier this week, a school board member kept calling teachers and school administrators “porn peddlers.” When the superintendent told her to “stop saying that my staff are giving pornography to students,” she repeatedly yelled at him, “I won’t.”

Virginians need to start paying attention to the new world of Christian nationalist public schools. In doing so, they could also answer the question, “Why do we have a teacher shortage?” »

A Christian school in Florida said gay and trans students would be asked to “leave school immediately”.

Grace Christian School in Valrico insisted that other Christian schools in Florida had similar policies that did not welcome LGBTQI students.

Trigger Warning: This story deals with homophobic and transphobic statements, which may be distressing to some readers. For 24-hour crisis support and suicide prevention call Lifeline on 13 11 14. For Australia-wide LGBTQI peer support call QLife on 1800 184 527 or live chat.

“It is true that a student cannot come to our school, knowingly for us, and be transgender or homosexual. It is rooted in scripture,” the school administrator said. and Pastor Barry McKeen claimed in a video defending the policy following media reports.

“God has spoken about these issues, explicitly, aggressively, and we’ve had these policies in our school since day one in the early 1970s. It’s not new.

McKeen admitted that an LGBTQI pupil had left the school, after discussions between the management and the parents, who decided to withdraw their child.

The school equates homosexuality with bestiality

McKeen made the video in response to an NBC report on his email to parents reiterating the institution’s policy that “God created mankind in his image: male (man) and female (woman), sexually different but with equal dignity”.

“Therefore, one’s biological sex must be affirmed and no attempt should be made to physically change, alter or disagree with one’s biological sex – including but not limited to elective sex reassignment, cross-dressing, transgender or non-binary gender fluid acts of conduct (Genesis 1:26-28). Students at the school will be designated by gender on their birth certificates and will be referenced by name in the same manner,” indicates the email.

“We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, transgender identity/lifestyle, self-identification, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery and pornography is a sin in the eyes of God and the church…Students who participate in these lifestyles will be asked to leave school immediately,” McKeen added.

Horrible place, says former student

Earlier this month, a school district in Florida’s Sarasota County passed a new policy in the wake of the “Don’t Say Gay” bill that requires teachers to kick their students out if they come out as LGBTQI.

Alejandra Caraballo, a clinical teacher at Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic, said she went to Grace Christian School as a child before her mother took her away.

“I went here for kindergarten. They still had corporal punishment and made parents use a paddle on the children. My mother took me out when they made her do it. Grace Christian School is an awful place no one should send their kids to,” Caraballo tweeted.

Grace Christian School in Valrico, Florida boasts on its website that it does not discriminate “on the basis of race, color, nationality, or ethnicity.”

But if a student happens to be gay, bisexual or transgender, it’s time to go!

In an email to parents obtained by BNC Newsadministrator Barry McKeen clearly explained the school’s position on LGBTQ students.

The subject line of the email reads, “Important point of emphasis on school policy. … Please read.”

“We believe that God created humanity in his image: male (man) and female (woman), sexually different but with equal dignity,” the email reads.

He then erroneously referred to “his biological sex”. For people in the back, ‘gender’ is defined as a social construct while ‘sex’ distinguishes the biological difference between women and men.

“Therefore, one’s biological sex must be affirmed and no attempt should be made to physically change, alter or disagree with one’s biological sex – including but not limited to elective sex reassignment, cross-dressing, transgender or non-binary gender fluid acts of conduct (Genesis 1:26-28) School students will be designated by gender on their birth certificates and will be referenced by name in the same manner.

Then the school confused being gay with “bestiality” and “incest” because, of course, it was.

He continues: “We believe that all forms of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, transgender identity/lifestyle, self-identification, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery and pornography is a sin in the eyes of God and the Church (Genesis 2:24; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; I Corinthians 5:1; I Corinthians 6:9; I Thessalonians 4:2- 7).

“Students who participate in these lifestyles will be asked to leave school immediately,” the email reads.

In a video statement, McKeen reaffirmed the school’s position and added, “We are not a group of hateful people. We don’t hate students who are particularly persuasive.

At least one LGBTQ student unenrolled from school after the email was sent.

“It’s not like my daughter is wearing rainbow flags or anything like that,” the teen’s mother said. “But I’m not going to make her feel ashamed of herself for any reason.”

Like many, I grew up with “The L Word”. The series centered on a group of lesbian and bisexual friends in Los Angeles and then shaped my understanding of what it meant to be a queer woman. It showed how queer women interact, how they present themselves, and ultimately how they signal to other women that they are queer. Then again, it was very much a program of its time – as indicated by Shane’s low-rise jeans, Grandpa’s fedoras and Max’s gross mismanagement, a character who transitions from female to male during the show.

Another more subtle example of the show being a byproduct of the early 2000s occurs in the first season, episode three titled “Let’s Do it”. The scene sees Alice, the token bisexual of the group, and Shane, the androgynous lothario, briefing the sexually inexperienced Dana on how to spot a lesbian based on her manicure. “Dana, look at her fingernails, are they long or short?” Shane asks as they observe a customer at their favorite cafe, The Planet. Dana responds, “They’re long and polite, so she’s . . .” and Shane finishes his sentence, “Leaning to straight.”

This interaction, while fleeting and largely inconsequential to the show’s larger plot, set a precedent for millions of queer women who treated “The L Word” as writing. He incorporated a cultural expectation that largely persists to this day: gay women should have short fingernails, and longer manicures exclude heterosexuals or so-called lesbians from mainstream pornography. This notion doesn’t leave much room for nuance and has left many queer women wondering how they can simultaneously express their sexuality and femininity.

Enter: the femmicure – also called queer or lesbian manicure – a nail trend that (self) straddles both fashion and function. It usually consists of a longer set of natural or acrylic nails followed by two (or more) nails at shorter lengths.

“In my experience, the most accepted queer/lesbian manicure is to have short index and middle nails, sometimes referred to as ‘party fingers,'” says Laura Sterling, known on Instagram as Lorbe, nail artist at Cute Nail Studio in Austin. “But in reality, it can be any number of short or long fingers, pride flags, naughty, gothic, super adorable, super stylish, celestial, bejeweled – you name it.”

This style, although not entirely new, has started to appear more and more on social media and allows the wearer to express themselves through their manicure without potentially harming their intimate partners.

“There were a few years after I first dated, I didn’t get my nails done because of my need for safe and comfortable sex with my partner and my desire to be visibly queer – I couldn’t find a way to have both,” said Queenie Von Curves, lesbian burlesque performer and feminist enthusiast. “I first had a femmicure in a monogamous relationship. I’ve always loved having long, elaborate nails, but they didn’t work with my sex life. I then learned about this online in a funny meme about a queer Instagram page and I was like, ‘Oh my god, this is perfect.'”

The femmicure has a practical purpose but also acts as a strange signifier to the wearer – as if to say, “Hello world, I’m a woman who loves women”. Signifiers have long been part of the queer community, with the photographer Hal Fischer documenting the handkerchief code of San Francisco’s gay scene as early as the 1970s. Fischer’s photographs decoded the colorful handkerchiefs and implied sexual preferences of his subjects, which were brought to mainstream recognition via an art exhibit and more later a book titled “Gay semiotics”.

To this day, many queer people use signifiers, including a femmicure, to discreetly communicate their sexuality to other LGBTQ+ people. “Personally, [femmicures are] a way for me to signal to other people on the L train that I am not only female, but also queer,” says Rocky J., a queer female tattoo artist who goes by Baby Rock Tattoos on Instagram. “It gives me a sense of empowerment and allows me to make a public statement about not only my femininity, but also my sexuality.”

It is also important to recognize that while femmicure has gained popularity among lesbian and bisexual women, it is not exclusive to either group. As nail art continues to grow among all genders and sexualities, so does the need for a manicure that works accordingly. After all, regardless of gender or sexual preference, we all want our intimate partners to be comfortable with our choice of nail length.

Yet, while many queer people understand the purpose of a femmicure, it’s still relatively underground. Historically, many members of the LGBTQ+ community have been hidden when displaying signifiers to avoid judgment, harassment, or violence. Shedding light on these signifiers has, when handled appropriately, given recognition and representation to a largely underserved group. In the wrong hands, this has led to stereotypes. (Who could forget all the hype around “gay ear piercing” in the 1990s and early 2000s?)

Yet, generational changes have resulted in greater mainstream acceptance of LGBTQ+. “I get different mixed reactions,” says Rocky J. “Some are shocked, some are thrilled, and some are curious about their purpose. My favorite thing is when people think [my nails are] just broke and I didn’t have time to get them fixed.”

While times are certainly changing, many who wear a femmicure are not always prepared to be constantly interrogated by strangers. As someone with lots of visible tattoos, I understand that sentiment. The truth is, there are many practical reasons why someone might want a combination of long and short nails. Those who play guitar and bass can reserve short nails for their pinching hand and wear longer nails on their strumming hand. You can also keep some of your fingernails short to button your jeans, tighten jewelry, unbuckle a car seat, or retrieve a credit card from an ATM.

“I’ve seen a short index finger and thumb for contact lenses,” Lorb says. “The style is perfectly practical for everyday cleaning, personal grooming, pressing buttons – everything a finger is supposed to do.”

In addition to allowing the wearer to express their femininity while providing a variety of functional benefits, a femmicure allows black and brown queer women to connect with their community. Nail art, especially the longer and more elaborate styles, roots in black and brown communities. It’s a cultural expression that many black and brown people have historically been discriminated against for wearing – whether you’re an Olympic gold medalist or a Grammy-winning entertainer. Femmicure allows those who wear it to simultaneously celebrate their culture as well as their sexuality.

“Growing up in a Latina family, I was surrounded by beautiful women with bright red lips, big golden bamboo hoops, and thin eyebrows,” J says. long French advice I used to see my mother’s friends with. Of course, being so young, I was not allowed to dive into [getting manicures] head first, especially since my parents were conservative. But the older I got, the longer my nails got, and that got me to where I am today.”

Nails are considered a “feminine” service, but they shouldn’t be, and continuing to break down that barrier starts with representation.

Just as a femmicure client will seek out a nail artist for her technical expertise, she is also inclined to find an inclusive environment. Queer people frequently see beauty salons (whether nail, hair, skincare or otherwise) as a place of refuge, and they make up a growing percentage of the clientele across a range of sexualities and gender identities. “Nails are considered a ‘feminine’ service, but they shouldn’t be, and continuing to break down that barrier starts with representation,” says Alaina Schwechler, a nail artist known on TikTok as HoneySheNailedIt. “People see nails for the art they’ve always been, and with that, more people are using them as an opportunity to define who they are.”

Creating an inclusive environment is not only important for the queer clientele, but also for the nail artists themselves. This supportive community, both in person and online, shows the impact that something as small as a manicure can have: “I’ve been slow to come to terms with my sexuality,” says Schwechler. “The first queer nail art set I did was a bisexual pride set; it was my way of coming out without coming out. It was my first video to reach a million views and launch my platform. If that’s not proof that we should live in our truth, I don’t know what is.”

Students in the southern US state of Florida returned to school last week under a new law criticized by some social activists.

The law is called the Parental Rights in Education Act. The law says it supports the “right of parents to make decisions about the upbringing and control of their children.”

But critics call it the “law of not saying gay.” They are concerned about the effects of the bill on homosexual students and their families. Law restricts discussion of sex and gender orientation subjects in classes with young children.

By law, students in kindergarten through third grade cannot be told about sexual or gender orientation. The law also prohibits public schools in the state from teaching about sexual or gender orientation that is not “age appropriate or developmentally appropriate…” The law also allows parents to take legal action against school systems if they disagree with what they teach.

“We will ensure that parents can send their children to school so that they receive an education, not a indoctrination Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said in March when he signed the law. He called teaching sexual subjects to very young students a way to “sexualize” young children.

The Parents Defending Education group is based in Virginia. He says on his website that topics like sex education and critical race theory are “not only at war with core American values, but also with childhood.”

Critics of the Florida law say it is unclear and difficult to understand. The Florida Department of Education said the portion of the law that limits discussion to age- or developmentally-appropriate material will go into effect when the guidance is released by the state.

Will Larkins is a high school student in Florida. The New York Times published an opinion piece that he wrote on the new law. He said it would make teachers less likely “to talk with students about gender identity and sexuality…” He added: “For many of my friends in dangerous situations because of their sexuality or their gender identity, school was a space where they could be themselves.

The administration of President Joe Biden called the “outright discrimination” law in a July statement. The statement adds that it “encourages intimidation and threatens the mental health, physical safety and well-being of students.

The Biden administration has also expressed concern about the “nationally dangerous” activities of Republican lawmakers. He said they were “targeting LGBTQI+ students, educators and individuals…”

On its website, NPR said that more than 12 states have introduced legislation similar to Florida’s bill. A law passed in Alabama that also prohibits discussions of gender and sexual identity before fifth grade.

Eva Goldfarb is a sex educator and professor at Montclair State University in New Jersey. She said VOA that the bills are an “all-out assault on sex education”. She said sex educators have been wrongly accused of sexualizing young children and teaching is already age-appropriate.

“The purpose of sex education is to protect young people from being sexually exploited and have poor sexual health outcomes,” she said.

Goldfarb added that it’s important to have early, age-appropriate discussions about topics like sex and gender identity. She said they will be ready to discuss these topics in more detail when they are in high school.

“The reason you have to start sex education in elementary school is…for the same reason you start teaching math in elementary school,” she said. “No one would say, let’s start teaching algebra first in eighth grade without first teaching addition, subtraction, and multiplication.”

Christine Soyong Harley is the director of SEICUS, a Washington DC-based sex education organization that supports teaching about gender and sexual orientation. She said when students aren’t taught about these topics at school, they often turn to the internet or social media services like TikTok for more information.

She said some information online can be informative, but is often misleading or incorrect. Soyong Harley also said Internet searches for sex and gender-related topics often expose children to pornography.

She said another 73 bills have been introduced to protect “parents’ rights” and limit discussion of “divisive concepts”. It could mean anything from sexuality to discussions of racism or American history.

“These are bills that attempt to weaponize the religious beliefs or personal opinions of parents to constrain schools” to accept teachings that deviate from normal ideas, said Soyong Harley.
