She’s right there, asking me “But what If I do have sex with someone else and I end up feeling awful about it? What if I get my heart broken or my ego bruised? What if it makes me so emotional that it scares them off ‘cause now I’m crying and I can’t explain why? What if they feel used because this all turns out to prove that I’m not polyamorous and I can’t do it?”
I was horrified that I'd been using what amounted to a racial or cultural slur since I was a kid without knowledge.
My period is more of a nuisance. It happens every month and has far worse side effects.
