Clearly there is considerable and understandable upset, me included, but what are we doing about it? Very few of the people I’ve heard complaining have actually told anyone about it or tried to make a difference, for they are often, as one student put it “calling people out… (afraid) that i would be next, or that things would escalate” (this goes for many school issues).
What is bigotry? In the last year and a half the word ‘bigot’ has been thrown around a lot on the political stage. ‘She’s a bigot!’ ‘Those who side with him are deplorable!’ You’ve heard these (paraphrased) statements before. Everyone seems to think that everyone who doesn’t agree with them are siding with the anti-Christ. So who’s right?
What follows are three arguments using biblical evidence for why the Christian community should be more supportive and welcoming towards the LGBTQ+ community, as well as why we should stop wrongfully judging people since we all have sin.

Noun: rape cul⋅ture
a society or environment whose prevailing social attitudes have the effect of normalizing or trivializing sexual assault and abuse.
“…a complex set of beliefs that encourage male sexual aggression and supports violence against women. It is a society where violence is seen as sexy and sexuality as violent. In a rape culture, women perceive a continuum of threatened violence that ranges from sexual remarks to sexual touching to rape itself. A rape culture condones physical and emotional terrorism against women as the norm . . . In a rape culture both men and women assume that sexual violence is a fact of life, inevitable . . . However . . . much of what we accept as inevitable is in fact the expression of values and attitudes that can change.” – Emilie Buchwald, author of Transforming a Rape Culture
“Rape culture includes jokes, TV, music, advertising, legal jargon, laws, words and imagery, that make violence against women and sexual coercion seem so normal that people believe that rape is inevitable. Rather than viewing the culture of rape as a problem to change, people in a rape culture think about the persistence of rape as ‘just the way things are.’” – definition of rape culture from Force: Upsetting the Rape Culture
“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.” – Confucius
What constitutes a well-rounded education? Why do we teach kids what we do when we do? A well-rounded education encompasses every aspect of life, especially topics on personal well-being, such as social, emotional, and even sexual health. These are important topics that are often overlooked and forgotten, but they are arguably even more important than algebra or biology. Topics like these are what shape and mold who we are. Topics like these are what shape our future generations. They deserve to be taught – they need to be taught.
This series will take a closer look at sexual health and its role in our education, including how it is taught, why it is taught that way, and if it should be taught that way. I hope to show you how important this is, and how our lack of proper sexual education is one of the greatest contributors to the rape culture that is pervasive in our country.
