Me and My Rights

There are a lot of rules and regulations that govern our lives. Some of these rules are cultural—they are defined by our society— and some come from our parents, our schools, or our government. When the rules come from the government, they are called “Laws.”

There are laws for just about everything – how to buy and sell things, to punish criminals, to marry and divorce people, and even laws about our own sexuality. Today we are going to talk about the way the rules and restrictions under which we live our lives affect the way we feel, think, and behave in respect to our sexuality.
