"As a young girl, I was sexually precocious with poor boundaries. I hung around with strange older men because I wanted their attention, and thusly, their love. As a young adult, I drank and used drugs to the point of blackout, went strange places with strange people, walked alone late at night without my wits about me. Still, the only times I was raped were when the man I was with was a rapist." ---Emily of XO Jane, on her Project Unbreakable submission
