I was reading Huffington Post at 3am this morning (up sick with the flu).

I tripped over this article:

The woman who wrote this article, Linda Tirado, is in the process of raising money on Gofundme in order to write a book of her experiences. My $10 won’t go far, but I will at least be a part, however small, of what she is doing. She also has a blog you should check out….
