To answer my own question...I keep these out of my convos IRL with my friends...well except for sex...that's a given in my girl circles. But, not outright in my blog (my mom and my 9.5 year old read my blog).
Religion, politics, and sex is generally private to me and not something anyone else really needs to know. It's always pretty uncomfortable to have to explain my positions (lol) and defend them to people, especially skeptics.
I do not post on religion or politics at all. Too much drama there. Sex maybe but it would depend on the exact topic. If its too detailed then I can't chance my mother in law asking me questions (my mom would be ok with it and as far as my kids go they don't read my blog because I really wanted something that was just mine)
I haven't really felt the need to post about sex. Don't get me wrong! To paraphrase Gordon Gecko from Wall Street "Sex, for lack of a better word, is good". It's just something I probably won't write about.
But that doesn't mean I won't read someone else's post!

I don't post about any of them. But I'm not ruling it out. Religion and politics play a part in my life but not to the point where I want to blog about a particular stance. I would not be good debater because I tend to see good points in everything!
