I should know better not to watch Family specials.
HBO Family is having this special "parents guide" on problems Middle school kids have.
Basically focusing on the problems of 11-13 year olds.
It makes me want to scream.
Covers depression. Sex having and orientation. Violence. Skipping.
Alot seamed geared almost to piss me off.
"Put words to your tears hunny, whats making you sad."
Its just to sickly sweat and other stuff just shows how unserious theese kids are on serious topics.
Current Mood: quixotic

In my first type of this post i had a line saying how alot of my problem was from the shear difference between what I went through and what they are going through.
I can barely remember being 5 and of what i do remember sexuality wasn't part of the equation. Heck even in sixth and seventh grade it wasn't part of the equation.
In roughly 8th grade i started becoming curious about dating and sexuality and such.
Which is largely contrasted to what the kids on the show were doing.
But as you said people mature differently.
And while its not a good gauge of maturity one large difference was in how some of the kids were saying they lost thier virginity at 13. More then a decade difference for me.
I'm just rambling now.
Luckily, you had time to work with a lot of other stuff before you got interested in sex.
I wonder how interrelated my sexuality and intelligence are versus yours? We're both obviously very smart and with sex on our minds a lot. I'm hypothesizing that yours may operate more independantly, while mine are inextricable.

You know i read a phil foglio comic about that. A virus linked the higher learning and sex portions of the brain. She started solving complex physics equations while reaching climax.
but i don't think thats what you had in mind.
Interest in sex for myself did happen around puberty just a matter of the self-esteem and rationalization telling me that it wasn't a likely prospect and tried channeling it elsewhere.
Actually, that *was* what I was talking about. I find that intellectual frustration is a feeling very much akin to sexual frustration...
