In other news, Mirah Curzer THANK YOU.

Thank you for so having my back. You are a true sister. I am really trying to be more courageous and stand up for myself against these douchecanoes; in the past, I’ve been called a cunt, threatened with rape and sodomy, told that my son was going to grow up to rape women because of having a slut like me as his mother, and various and other lovely declarations and for a long time I did just block them because after having suffered abuse at the hands of men my entire life, aggression like that tends to shut me down and trigger all sorts of anxiety. But something pushed me past my breaking point recently and I made a decision. I realized ignoring this stuff was not teaching my 13 year old daughter the things I wanted her to learn about who she could be.

I envy women like you (of course, I’m making huge assumptions about who you are, so please correct me if i’m wrong) who are so solid in who you are and how you’ll allow people to treat you.

I hope to learn from your example. Again, I know you don’t know Sean and I’m touched that you were so willing to jump in and back me up. xoxo

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
