I really believed for a long time that being fat meant guys wouldn’t be attracted to me, and they wouldn’t sexually assault me. Really, guys don’t care. People who assault are looking for easy victims. Not romantic partners.

To me, the biggest lesson from that is that I can’t keep myself safe by acting depressed or ashamed of myself. Or by being sick or fat or disabled. It’s not even a side benefit.

Man. Harsh.
