It always shakes me to my core when someone takes the position that, morally, I don't deserve to exist. As a gay woman in this time in history, it is something that I face a lot, and that I hope will change, just like the prejudice related to weight ought to. And reading the comments is always worse.

Sometimes, I have to decide to step away from the comments. I stop reading them. I stop fixating on the debate, and try to remind myself that, to the people debating, the discussion is academic and abstract, even though to me it is a discussion of my very being.

Hang in there.
