Gender based violence is a term used to describe violence that happens to people because of their gender, gender identity, gender expression, or perceived gender. Gender based violence can look like some people having more power (control) over themselves and others because of their gender and use this control to oppress others - take away people's freedom to make their own choices in life

This Infographic reviews sexual consent. Sexual consent happens when people want to be sexually active with each other. Sexual consent is used to communicate to a partner that sex or a type of sexual activity is wanted or not wanted. Consent means everyone understands what they are consenting to without feeling pressured to do something they are not comfortable with.

 

Sex is meant to be a pleasurable and fun experience for people. However, there are risks involved with taking part in sexual activities, like an unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STI)/sexually transmitted blood borne infections (STBBI).


Rejection is when someone says no to another person who asks them to take part in romantic, sexual, or other activities. Romantic/sexual rejection can be when a person does not want to go on a date, does not want to have sex, does not want to do sexual activities, and/or does not want to be a romantic partner. Rejection can happen in romantic relationships, sexual relationships, friendships, and any other type of relationship.


Pronouns such as she/her, he/him and they/them are commonly used as a way for a person to share their gender identity

This toolkit addresses LGBTQ2S+ awareness, visibility, and dialogue for individuals with neurodiversity and for their caregivers and families. Gender Identity, sexual freedom, and the rights of neurodiverse people are important for growing and thriving. All people have the right to self-determination, meaning, in this case, the right to engage in mutual relationships that are consensual and respectful and, importantly, the right to be informed about our bodies.

This study examined issues of sexuality, including experiences and interests among adults. The researchers compared a group of adults on the autism spectrum with adults in the general population.


This article summarizes a study where a survey was administered to adults with autism and those without autism. The survey examined topics of sexual knowledge, from where sexual information had come, and experiences of sexual victimization. Differences between groups were found. In contrast to adults without autism, a greater proportion of those with autism had been victimized.


This Toolkit offers information that may be useful for teens. It addresses topics related to one’s physical development and health. Specific sections are titled: What is Puberty? My Body, Sexual Health and Romantic Relationships; Personal Hygiene; Medication Management; Nutrition; Fitness; Fun; and Managing My Behavior and Relationships. The Toolkit was written by Laura Beaune. Ms. Beaune is a social worker who has worked extensively with youth.
