Everyone deserves medically accurate, comprehensive sex education. But unfortunately, what you get depends on where you live. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/08/sex-education-requirement-maps_n_5111835.html?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000063  via huffingtonpost

It’s Equal Pay Day – a day that shows how far into 2013 women must work to earn what men earned in 2012. After all, women still make just 77 cents to a man’s dollar. This gender gap affects women (and their families) from all backgrounds, ages, and at all levels of education – and it’s unacceptable. 

Re-blogging because (unfortunately) this is still a thing.

Here’s a restaurant we’d like to eat at: Thailand’s “Cabbages & Condoms”! 

Via Slate:

“‘Our food is guaranteed not to cause pregnancy,” boasts the slogan of Cabbages and Condoms, a Bangkok restaurant with a focus on family planning.

Mechai Viravaidya, a safe-sex activist and founder of Thailand’s Population and Community Development Association (PDA), established the eatery with the philosophy that birth control should be as accessible and mundane as cabbages. Condoms dominate the restaurant’s decor — mannequins wear outfits made from them, the lampshades are covered in them, and diners receive them at the end of their meal in lieu of mints.

Proceeds from the restaurant benefit PDA, which aims to break down taboos surrounding sex and HIV/AIDS through community outreach programs. Viravaidya’s other quirky safe-sex awareness initiatives include condom-blowing contests for school children and free vasectomies for Cabbages and Condoms patrons. (There is a family-planning clinic next door to the restaurant.)

We’ve all heard of the great health benefits sex can provide, but now one study says there is a correlation between sex and higher salaries.
