Stoking Fires and Poking Bears
Lauren Hayes

Thank you so much for this. I had similar experiences, and now all this anger I dutifully stuffed down is rising. I will not let it engulf me, I will channel it to good. BUT the evangelicals who threw so much hurt, fear and judgement towards the girl I was don’t get a free pass any longer. I am re-dedicating myself to fighting for girls like the ones you and I were. And it helps to see I am not alone in experience…thank you.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
