Sunday Platform - Sexuality in the Public Sphere: Why What We Say Matters

  • Sep 16, 2012 · 11:00 AM

In a world saturated by media, it is critical that we discuss sex scandals and sexual politics with deep moral sensitivity. Dr. Kelby Harrison, a past fellow in sexual ethics at Union Theological Seminary, explores our obligations to fellow members of our community in this matter. For example, studies have shown that in states where debates over marriage equality are underway, bullying of LGBT teenagers goes way up. What are we allowing ourselves and our children to internalize, through the public debates that happen? How do the witch-hunt style attacks on "sexting" politicians change the way all of our citizens think and feel about sexuality and human sexual connection? Where and how can we insert analysis into the dialogue (at home, around the office, and in the media) that might make a difference in exploring ethical questions more sensitively?
