I love it! I think you should publish it again. I think it’s something that needs to be said, over and over again. It may be from a male’s perspective but it’s the truth.

That was my purpose in writing this piece. I’m not going to feel badly about myself because society projects an image that not real or a standard that no one can or should live up to. Screw what anyone else thinks. I feel good about myself.
