Queer Kid Stuff
Permalink  
 

Sooo, I just stumbled across this video and channel...I'm really not sure how I feel about it!! It seems to be aimed at really young kids and I'm all for spreading awareness but I think this is a tad creepy! What are your guys thoughts? What is the appropriate age to teach kids about this kind of stuff?

I'm at work and can't watch it at the moment but it does appear to be aimed to young just looking at it. I don't think it's important to get into different orientations and such at a very young age. I think it IS important to teach acceptance from the start though. I'd say talking about this sort of thing should be done after they know the basics of sex. (Which I wouldn't pinpoint an age for since every child is different.)

Indeed, it's a bit tricky to explain asexuality without knowing what sex is. I didn't learn about sex at school until I was 10/11 and I never really asked my parents about such stuff. As for other sexualities I didn't know they existed till I was about 14, I definitely wish I had learnt about other sexualities at the same time I learnt about sex.

It's a good try, I think, but agreed that you can't really explain asexuality without an adequate understanding of sex and the weight it is given in societies. I'm ace/aro, so for me, it's easy if I'm put in a situation when I try to explain my sexuality (without using either A words): I'm not into anyone of any gender. It's trickier, I can imagine, for those who are asexual but not aro. Would love to hear people's experiences around this!
