Where we stand on…
What follows is a list of all today’s major controverted issues in sexuality, and where we stand on them. The order is as alphabetical as we could make it.
If we list an item as being “for” or “against” plus “it depends,” it’s because we recognize exceptions but believe the creation pattern is strong enough that we can establish a general rule. If we list both “for” and “against,” it’s because we recognize legitimate and illegitimate forms. You can click the checks and crosses in these cases for more information—look for the dotted underline.
|Sexuality & society||For||Against||It depends|
