That’s right, it’s that time again! This time, the Avengers are facing the truly fearsome Lava Men. Between these underground guys and the Mole Men, it’s a wonder the Earth’s crust hasn’t caved in completely…

Avengers #6, July, 1964. Writing: Stan Lee. Art: Jack Kirby. Inks: Chic Stone. Lettering: S. Rosen. Oh my god the hype, can you STAND IT. They outdid themselves in this issue! You’ve GOT to read it!! We’re even warned on the splash page: “CAUTION!! Don’t tear this magazine or wrinkle the pages or get food stains on it! We have a hunch you’ll want to save this as a collector’s item for a long, long time!” OKAY THEN.

God we fuck up teenagers’ heads. We tell them that biological conditions are moral punishments and then we get all shocked when they don’t practice rational risk management of biological conditions. We teach them “sex is super desirable and all the cool kids do it, and it’s hideously shameful and will destroy your life” and we wonder why they act an eensy bit neurotic about it. If you tried to design a system for making sexually active kids confused and unsafe, you couldn’t do much better than the American media and school system.
And for once, the answer is relatively simple. Just talk about sex like it’s a part of life. Some people have sex and some people don’t, because people are different. STIs aren’t bad because they’re Dirty Crotch Rot; they’re bad because they’re contagious illnesses like strep throat or whooping cough, and you can ask a doctor to check for and treat them just like you would with strep throat. Unwanted pregnancy isn’t a scarlet A; it’s a mostly-preventable accident that sometimes occurs when people are going about their normal business of having sex. You can ask the school counselor about a variety of topics, including career planning, problems at home, questions about sex, or conflicts with teachers.
If we could just get the goddamn stick out of our collective ass and accept that sex is a human activity and teenagers are humans, maybe there wouldn’t be quite so many plaintive “I don’t understand my body and I’m confused and scared and I don’t know anyone I can ask in person” messages flying out into the world.
