Borders are always fictions. They are sometimes necessary fictions; they provide definitive shape and certainty to the unknown or the uncomfortable. They delineate between high and low culture, valued and not valued, and acceptable and unacceptable. We use borders to define art, music, food, nations, and more, often basing our personal borders on our own passions and pleasures.

"I also want to see shifts in our sex education that lead to a culture better equipped to manage issues surrounding consent, sex-positive language, and healthy relationship dynamics."
