The internet has changed how kids learn about sex, but sex ed in the classroom still sucks. InSex Ed 2.0, Mashable explores the state of sex ed and imagines a future where digital innovations are used to teach consent, sex positivity, respect, and responsibility.There are few things more mortifying than being a preteen and needing to ask someone about good old Aunt Flo. Thanks to The Care and Keeping of You: The Body Book for Girls, millions of young women didn't have to. American Girl's seminal book about getting our periods, dealing with acne, and finding healthy friendships provided answers to questions we were all too embarrassed to ask. Packed with informative, anatomical illustrations and simple, matter-of-fact details, the book was a staple for prepubescent girls before we all started googling. Instead of offering cringeworthy euphemisms like "sacred flower" or "first moon," it got straight to the point: You have a vagina, and here are the changes yo…

Jimmy Kimmel tears into Trump's press conference in brutal 12-minute monologue

Donald Trump's Wednesday press conference may have been extremely long-winded and baffling, but it certainly gave the late night hosts a lot of material."Donald Trump treated the media gathered in New York to a rambling, angry, jumbled, dishonest and frequently incoherent hour-and-twenty-minute-long press conference," Jimmy Kimmel says in the monologue above. "It might still be going, I don't know."In his 12-minute breakdown of the whole debacle, Kimmel speaks about Trump's defence of Brett Kavanaugh, his reaction to people laughing at him at the UN, and the comment he made about China's "total respect for Donald Trump, and for Donald Trump's very large a-brain."
