Sexualupplysning – Hur då? En intervjustudie om RFSU Malmö och RFSU Stockholms sexualupplysning
Sammanfattning: In this study, I investigate different ways in which sexuality education can be carried out. The study focuses on different pedagogical approaches towards sexuality education within the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education, RFSU. More specifically, two local branches of RFSU (RFSU Malmö and RFSU Stockholm), with different methods of teaching matters of sexuality, are examined. The study is built on interviews that I made with coordinators and educators at the two local branches. RFSU Malmö and RFSU Stockholm both depart from a common agenda, to criticize normative ideals and to fight oppressive structures. Still, their methods of conducting sexuality education in schools differ from each other. RFSU Malmö works with gender-inclusive groups, as a means of abandoning categorization on the basis of sex. This standpoint can be seen to derive from a queer feminist perspective. But there is also a risk at hand, what if the current structures of power are not simply destroyed in a gender-inclusive group, but only hidden? RFSU Stockholm, on the other hand, works with gender-exclusive groups, by the conviction that boys and girls have different experiences, an argument often associated with radical feminism and its advocacy for separatism. This, too, can be problematic in that individuals might feel excluded if they are assumed to identify with a gender which they are not. Both gender-inclusive and gender-exclusive methods are problematic from different perspectives. I am convinced, however, that it is important to strive towards an environment for conversation where you can feel safe, regardless of gender. Perhaps there are other measures, reducing the size of the groups, for instance, that can be taken in order to improve sexuality education further.
