A Note to the Reader
Celebrating the Twentieth-Anniversary Edition
of It’s Perfectly Normal

about reproduction, birth control, abortion, sexual abuse, and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS. And we have included information about gender identity.

and computers to go online to find information
and to communicate with others, we have also

and risks of being online. We believe this will
help you use the Internet to find accurate and
responsible information about sexual health and will also help you protect your own as well as your friends’ and your family’s personal safety.
