The Preliminary Text:
1. Whereas, sexuality and gender are indisputably inseparable from human experience in shaping individual identity, eros and culture;
2. Whereas, the arts, education and adherence to civil rights are fundamental to understanding, enriching and upholding the inherent sexual nature within our humanity;
3. Whereas, individual sexual expression contributes to the pursuit of happiness;
4. Whereas, the Comstock Act, adopted by Congress on March 3, 1873, unjustly restricted sexual education, culture and individual freedoms, causing immeasurable harm to educators, artists and countless individuals and families, who in turn, were implicitly denied from benefitting from them;
5. Whereas, honoring sexual awareness furthers personal education and societal wisdom, helping to prevent sexual abuse and victimization, supporting familial cohesion, and empowers democratic discourse, embracing the very definition of the fabric of our nation, as a whole;
We herewith, ask Congress to recognize March 3, 2010 as National Sexual Awareness and Free Speech Day.
