When I first learned that my ex had discovered my blog and filed for custody, I immediately contacted Leigha Fleming. A board member at the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, Leigha gave me great advice and pointed me in some good directions. She was quick to point out that I wasn’t alone.
She recently wrote:
Organizations like the Sexual Freedom Legal Defense and Education Fund and the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom are really the only ones of their kind. And, they're the only ones who provide active and proactive support to people whose custody is challenged on the basis of their alternative sexual expression.
No matter what you think of a person in particular, people shouldn't lose access to their children based solely on consensual adult sexual expression. Being queer, being bi, being into SM doesn't make you a bad parent by default.
And, the only way to challenge those attitudes in the courts and in society in general is to support organizations like the Sexual Freedom Legal Defense and Education Fund and the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. And, in particular, to support specific cases like Jefferson's when the opportunity arises.
The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom has donated some great items to be raffled at the Friends of Jefferson benefit on Wednesday. Thanks for all your help, NCSF!
