Good evening Truth Seekers! ObjectivelyDan is joined tonight by ACA’s own Christy Powell, host of Secular Sexuality. Christy is a licensed therapist and talks with us tonight about mental health and the stigmas that come with it. First caller tonight, Brutus in MN has wanted to started a male positive feminist movement to help keep men from sliding to right wing groups. There are some sites to help educate men. You want to include some female voices in your movement. Sven in WA asks our opinion of gender specific dress codes in the work environment. Dan wonders if equal protection laws actually protect or how to enforce those laws. You are likely more protected at a larger company but there are systemic issues affecting the world. Being a part of the world changing takes some pioneering. Harry in WA asks Christy’s advice about exploring their gender when their partner has come out as transgender. Just because you experience someone else transitioning doesn’t devalue your own thoughts or exploration, there is nothing wrong with that. Find some people that will support you and be happy! David in NE talks with us about his past sexual abuse experience that affects how he thinks about his bisexuality, specifically that it caused his same sex attraction. We can’t speak to your experience but research is inconclusive and may have limited your sexuality. We recommend talking to a sex positive therapist. Mira in Germany grew up with a mother into alternative medicine and asks our advice for remaining skeptical about those faux cures. Finding a shared community to talk to others and keep yourself informed, be your own advocate. Last Caller tonight! Noel in CO wants to create LGBT inclusive spaces and asks for advice about educating their grandparents. There are affirming grandparents and being old is not an excuse to not change your mind. Conversations with family can be very tricky, give them a chance to hear what you really think. That's all the Truth for this week! Check out more from Christy at www.vcatx.com or Thursday’s at 7 on Secular Sexuality. Thanks for watching and keep wearing those masks out there!
