I get to class early and sit down. I see a small, about 5’7” figure approach me. This figure is foreign to me. I don’t recognize it. As it gets closer I start to make out some facial features. It’s him, it’s Tyler VanAvery. But it is not THE Tyler I know. Something is missin...

This writer of this article has chosen to remain unnamed due to the sensitive nature of this topic. I’m sitting at the dinner table, and as I lift my fork to take a bite, my mother makes a casual comment about calories. The scoreboard in my head illuminates. 75 for the pasta. 65 for the sauce. 31 for the green beans. Total of 171. Far too much. ...

I lived in a bubble. A bubble constructed of willful ignorance, of social normality and simultaneously social isolation. But I also live in a world where sexual harassment is more common than I ever thought. But there's one difference between me and most of the other people who want to approach thi...
