Reading your essay and reflecting on my own experience of rape as a 15 year old virgin, I decided to publish on Medium, “How I Gained 20 Pounds While Writing My Memoir.” While I read your piece and as it gained momentum, I got more angry with each sentence. I could feel my heart beginning to race and rage at the insanity of it all. Rape, A Pre-existing Condition! WTF??? I sent your article to all my friends. Thanks for writing it.
