I’m in the process of flushing some really expensive sperm down the drain. In the process, I learned that the folks who collected it refused to label it with my legal name, on account of how girls don’t make sperm n’ such. Whoops!
Despite the facts that: (1) I grew up in the Twin Cities, (2) I attended the University of Minnesota for a few years, and (3) most of my relatives are on at least one U of M junk mail list, I know precious little about the University of Minnesota’s program in Human Sexuality. As a trans woman with a degree in the History of Science, I’m pretty sure there’s room for criticism.
Joycelyn Elders is awesome.
Sexual health education is awesome.
The University of Minnesota’s newly announced Joycelyn Elders Chair in Sexual Health Education is double awesome.
The depressing aspect of this is that this is the first chair of its kind in the United States. I mean, come on guys, there are chairs in everything.
