    I had a strange realization today.

    Unlike my usual experiences, this is something that I feel is very common but isn't talked about nearly enough. I was thinking about how so many parents worry that if their child were to see a naked body, it would scar them for life, that this simple experience would somehow...

    I'm not scarred for my life.
