Adults' Complicity in Limiting Students' Understanding of Sex, Gender and Sexuality at School
Mayo, J. B., Jr.
Sex Education: Sexuality, Society and Learning, v16 n1 p105-110 2016
This article is a commentary on the seven papers in this special issue of "Sex Education." A compelling theme interwoven throughout all the articles in subtle and explicit ways is the role that adults play in the lives of students, particularly in the ways in which adults impact how students enact and respond to the multiple manifestations of sex, gender, and sexuality present throughout the school. It is also significant the degree to which well-meaning educators are simultaneously creators of change and complicit actors in sustaining discourses and power dynamics that run counter to their efforts to effect change.
