With the recent political moves against birth control and other sex-negative and anti-woman language happening in American politics and media lately, the most common question I have heard from friends has been "Really? Are we still talking about this?" Years after the issues have been settled for many in a personal way, they appear to be unsettled in our public discussions.
So I wonder:
What issues around gender and sexuality are you surprised we're still talking about in 2012? Have you found yourself startled that people still find things controversial that you thought we'd settled in our public discourse?
