i've written to you a lot since i first saw your website and youtube videos, i think what you do is great, you are my role model, i want to be like you for my country, i'm colombian and i went to art school for 5 years, now i'm a art teacher at a private school, i have a blog where i write about female sexuality because it kills me that women dont know their bodies and how to please them self, and if they dont, how do they expect a guy to do it?
My teen students found my blog on the internet and they don't respect me anymore, they say mean things to me and told the principal, i dont care, but it may cost me my job, i dont know what to do because i'm not gonna close my blog, i just want to be able to explain how important it is to be aware of your own body and how it works sexually, and how important this is even for teens who think sex is a bad thing to do, feels good and makes them more badass, and the girls, oh betty, you'll be so sad if you heard those girls talking bout sex and their own bodies, i just want a little advice on how be able to express my self so people can understand how important this is, i love you, you've changed my life
thanks for reading me and always replying.
Now you encounter the curse of censorship. Columbia is a very Catholic country so I'm not surprised about the problem you are now facing. Teen girls are most in need of your information. They have all been conditioned to make fun of sex, to put it down and say how gross it is. Then they secretly go off and read your blog. Hopefully. Or they ignore it and suffer the consequences.
So what to do? If you lose your job then you must seek other ways to make a living. You are a beautiful and brave young woman to be doing this. Because of my outspoken attitude about women's sexuality, I was never hired by any school. I had to always be independent without any formal affiliation by going into business for myself. Occasionally I sold some of my art and I ran workshops for women to barely eek out a living. It's a hard road for us no matter what we decide or what solution we can devise. I wish I could give you some magic formula to make it less hard. but alas, there is none. Maybe you can find a patron or some other source of making a living. But I just know that schools are the last place that will accept us. So you must be an independent worker without any formal organization behind you.
I lived a life of near poverty until recently. Now I'm famous via the Internet but still await the "rich" part of someone who is "rich and famous." The strangest part is I have never regretted the struggle. You know I wish you the best,
