On episode 75 Sunny & Lola’s reflection on the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries prompts an impromptu conversation about America's long history of sexualizing teens. We’re all shocked by the R. Kelly story but remember back in high school when it was “cool” to date a college-aged person? Remember when adults in your life didn’t bat an eye at you dating a legal adult when you were underage? We break this complicated situation down by reflecting on our own experiences. Some of what we touched on: hitting puberty early, the over-sexualization of girls of color, how being sexually objectified as a teen shapes one's sexuality, Mary Kay Letourneau, the negative impacts of marrying young, the cultural normalization of teens dating adults, equating sex with love, why people stay in abusive situations & more.
Sunny & Ken, xo!
