Three Interesting Things

1. The ACLU and I don't agree on everything, but we do agree that better comprehensive sex ed is a great step towards curbing sexual harassment. I do want to note that a lot of coverage of sexual harassment focuses on a gender binary, rather than a spectrum and folks that don't fit neatly or always into such things are often more at risk, because a lot of our stuff seems to exclude them and that's also something we need to work on. Comprehensive sex ed should help with that. 
2. This deep dive into the last year in the life of some of the J20 protesters looks at how court limbo has a lasting impact on your life. 
3. The teens in another DC suburb have gotten the right to vote in local elections, and some experience changing laws.
