Shannon, thank you so much for sharing this piece. I’m a new writer to Medium, and I had unexpected success with an article I wrote about cheating. I received a ton of backlash on it & personal attacks and reading your words really helped. I’ve toyed with the idea of writing about the success I had with the piece, but I’m still on the fence. Thank you for your insight. You’re always such an inspiration!

I have questions (and answers) about sex, love, and pop culture. You too? Join me here:
