Megan, your article on your sexual assault blew me away. It was so well written and poignant. Thank you for sharing it with us. You are going through so much shit right now, please try to hang in there, and your friends at CP would love to have you come visit and unleash some potty mouth venting that maybe can't go on the fancy paid blogs. You are a wonderful beautiful person with great talent, and please keep telling yourself that.
big hugs.

Second SFL's comments. You never cease to amaze me with your strength, intelligence, talent and resilience. If it helps, all of us at CP adore you and what only what's best for you. Hope the migraine is better. Hugs.

I, also, was impressed. The quality of the writing and the assertive choice of subject are exactly what I've come to expect from you, and it's glorious to know you don't disappoint. Some of the reader response, that disappointed me. Whatever you have to do, to survive, is the right thing to do. People want to give you shit about consequences? Screw that, you'll make a bigger difference with a lifetime of sanity than with a moment of martyrdom. Maybe it's over the top to say that some 'feminists' expect rape victims to act like suicide-bombers, destroying themselves for the 'greater good'...
Anger's scary. Forget it. (nonthreatening)Hugs.

Thank you for your article. It's hard for people to understand the legal and emotional battle that is before a victim. I don't begrudge their ignorance, though. I envy it.

You are so great. I'm glad you're writing so much for Jezebel, even though I don't hang out there regularly. You reach a lot of women and are widely read, which is obviously a good thing. That was a great post about sexual assault.

Also, more personally, my own grandmother passed away last week, and I am pretty upset about it. I gather you are facing something somewhat similar, so I'll just say: I'm thinking about you, and you make me proud to have been affiliated with you however tangentially. Writing is a way to make pain into power.

MEGAN: Um, I'd prefer not to fuck James Dobson. You know he wouldn't be any good in bed. He'd either want to be peed on and freaky shit like that or he'd have to pop a Viagra and wait 30 minutes for a boner which he would not spend eating me out and then subsequently bonk for 2 minutes missionary.

Ok, you're still the funniest ever.

Well written article.
