72 | Collective Resolve - Erica Butler

Birth Stories in Color

Erica Butler, founder, and Sex Educator for Happ E. SexTalk, an education consulting company focused on challenging the media and cultural messages pertaining to female sexuality, body image, and sexual pleasure – specifically the historically negative and hypersexualized images of Black female sexuality. Erica shared her birth story with us, discussed her work and its importance in reproductive health and justice.Erica opened up about both of her pregnancies. The first pregnancy was without complications and only mild nausea but eventually led to an emergency surgical birth. Her personal connection to a local doula organization, ROOTT, allowed her and her husband to envision birth with a new lens during her second pregnancy. She found herself healthily losing weight as she shifted her diet with her doula's support and recommendations. She managed a gestational diabetes diagnosis with her diet as well. Identifying stressors during pregnancy helped Erica to understand how her body worked. Despite her best plans and she was met with placenta previa that would lead to a scheduled surgical birth. The delivery went well, but the postpartum experience was met with low blood sugar levels, lactation issues, medical provider issues, and anxiety. Erica and her husband, David, leaned into their own strength and village for support to help them.Resources:Sex Positive Families | education and resources that help families raise sexually healthy children using a shame-free, comprehensive, and pleasure-positive approachAMAZE | provides young adolescents around the globe with medically accurate, age-appropriate, affirming, and honest sex education onlineGuttmacher | leading research and policy organization committed to advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights in the United States and globallyBedsider | free birth control support network for women ages 18–29Dr. Lexx Brown-James l couples clinician and sex educatorSponsors:Restoring Our Own Through Transformation (ROOTT) | reproductive justice organizationROOTT is a collective of concerned Black families, community members, advocates & interdisciplinary professionals dedicated to decreasing Black maternal & infant mortality in Ohio.

(#TMHTLYB) Lesson 1: Identity by Erica Butler (also known as The Brown Girl)

Change The Subject

Welcome to the very first installment of Teach Me How To Love You Better. This is a segment presented by Dergobj and Change The Subject. The purpose of this is to create a safe space for women to keep it real with men. But the beauty of this is that men are NOT being argumentative in this space. We are actually here to listen, encourage, and support our queens in a conducive way. And in turn, we learn something about the women we intend to love. Our first host is a queen by the name of Erica Butler. She has branded herself and a movement called The Brown Girl Experience. This woman is an incredible mind who shared so many things about herself, her sisters, and the honorable men she has encountered in life. We spoke on so many subjects...like her experiences with having a chronic illness called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). She talked dating men with a chronic illness, and how it effects her relationships with men. And then...we got into her constructive criticisms of men. Luckily for men...it wasn't as harsh as we thought. The focal point of Erica's views were centered around Identity. How men tend to place margins on women with various excuses and tactics that actually have nothing to do with them. She even addresses things that women do to women, in terms of identity. The conversation was very healthy and informative...and Erica does an exceptional job at getting her points across without making men or women feel uncomfortable or persecuted (which she also talked about as well)... There are so many great points in this hour long installment. I truly hope that the people enjoy this....and that this is a step in the right direction for reconnecting and communication between men and women. Without further ado...here is Lesson 1: Identity by Erica Butler "The Brown Girl"
