Harassment probably doesn't seem like a worthwhile issue, if you've never experienced it yourself.

bathrooms
These days, it seems I cannot even have a bowel movement in peace. Here's what I'm doing to reclaim my bathroom as a private space.

The only person with the integrity to look out for me and tell me my ass is floating out freestyle is some girl who was a friend of a friend in HIGH SCHOOL.
boyfriend tracker

coming out
Whereas I realize better than most the costs of turning your life and your very identity into a political statement, I also know that it is sometimes our secrets that make us sick, more so than whatever it is that we’re hiding.
celebrity memoirs
Reading about a country star's drunk yokel dad is entertaining for me, but what about her drunk yokel dad, and his drunk yokel feelings?
embarrassing photos
Existing in public space might mean that our bodies and images are free for all, but if I don’t want to passively or actively participate, I don’t think I should be required to offer an explanation.
