In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
The sexuality education program is about wholeness and healing. It is about justice and equity. It is about responsibility to self and to others, and it's about enhancing the meaning and value of life itself, and those are all religious pursuits. — Judith A. Frediani, quoted in the 1999 UU World article "From Liberation to Health" by Dan Kennedy
Because attitudes about sex and sexuality change over time, speaking with someone from a different generation may reveal a perspective different from yours. Identify a friend or family member from a different generation, either older or younger, with whom you would feel comfortable discussing social attitudes toward sexuality. Seek them out for a conversation, sharing some of your thoughts from this workshop. Ask them to share some of their experiences and understandings of sexuality as it relates to religious, social, or cultural expectations. Did they feel oppressed, challenged, or liberated by their experiences?
