My brother-in-law posted this bell hooks essay on Facebook yesterday and it is...powerful stuff.

I have so many thoughts and so many feels about this, as a (mostly) heterosexual woman who grew up with an emotionally distant father and who has struggled through several abusive relationships with men in my adulthood. I have so many thoughts, in fact, that I can't get them straight in my head and when I go back and re-read sections of this essay, I just start crying.

I would love to hear your thoughts on it as well, Groupthinkers.
