Teen Skepchick's Reality Checks

Teen Skepchick’s Reality Checks 5.2

The RU-BY RHOD! edition

How sci-fi makes us more accepting of different conceptions of sex and sexuality. “Sci-fi sex is fun to talk about, of course, but how can all of that help us understand the actual future of humanity? Simply put: we imagine what we hope to see. So the question is: what is it we imagine and hope for? An utter free-for-all of alien-cyborg-A.I. bacchanalia? I don’t think so. Instead, sci-fi is teaching the diversity of our own human sexuality back to us.” (via Science Not Fiction)
