I've always loved stories. I love how honest writing is. You really can't hide. Words reveal more than you even realize. It's a risk to put your writing out there, especially in public forums like this, but it's vital if you wish to improve.
This piece has been bothering me for a long time. At first, I thought it was because of the personal nature of it but than I realized: I hadn't properly emphasized some of the disturbing cultural norms this piece touches on. I needed to revise and say what really needed to be said.
