LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]fuuangel)

Hi! First post. I stumbled across this community through [info]dogemperor's listing of charities.

Short background: I grew up in a heavily Southern Baptist area. I was lucky not to have dominionist parents, but almost everyone else was. We had no sex education in public school and women were somewhat restricted. I was never heavily involved with the church, but there were a lot of things going on that made me uncomfortable. I never realized why until I got to college and realized that not every area was so restrictive and insular.

What's happening nationwide now seems to be a larger echo of what I saw growing up. Quite frankly, this scares me. I want to know, I want to be informed. I never again want to live in the kind of ignorance I grew up in, where the shenanigans I saw there (that are now being repeated on a national scale) seemed normal. I plan to take a look at the links on the community info page and look forward to hearing what all of you have to say.
