Currently weeping with joy and relief at my desk. You know, as one does.

SAME! I am reeling from the fact that this is actually something other sexual assault survivors feel. I always assumed I was just kind of a freak to feel this way about breastfeeding. Seriously, thank goodness for The Toast.

"Why would I do that? Why would I give my breasts to another person all day every day for some indefinite period of time?"

Holy fuck. Fellow CSA survivor here. I can't even tell you what a relief it was to read this post. It was like turning on a light in a dark room to discover that I'm actually in the company of lots of folks who totally understand where I'm coming from. The idea of giving over a part of my body in demand every day for days and weeks and months has always simultaneously scared the living crap out of me and made me furious. Aaminah, than you for this post!

"I hate immature people, I can’t stand drama, and I want to smack most teens because they act like they are 5. I feel like a 37-year-old trapped in an 18-year-old’s body."

Mmhmm, yes I sense this about you. You **radiate** maturity.

"I had a girlfriend in middle school and that was the most major sexual experience I’d ever had. But she was very religious and every time we were intimate she would sob and read me verses out of the Bible. It made me feel like I’d hurt her."

Well, that's probably because you did hurt her, in that you clearly weren't respecting her boundaries.

"After I was born [my mom] had a nervous breakdown and couldn’t take care of me, so I lived with her grandparents until I was about 2. I think that’s part of the reason we’ve never been close: We didn’t bond when I was a baby."

Uh huh. And yet, the whole not bonding with your dad as a baby thing seems to have had the OPPOSITE effect. Good, good.

**throws up**

We've probably never met and maybe we never will but I'm really **really** glad you made that phone call. And I'm **really** glad you're posting here.
