Jessica, Portland, Ore.

    "It's a strange feeling to be fetished + feared at the same time. I remember being excited to go into medicine and help my community heal and save lives. I didn't realize that I would also need to heal from fear, from harassment, from assault, from vandalism to the very clinic that provides care to the community. Fear breeds hate. Just stop! I am not submissive! I do not need to be feared! Stop! And you'll have room to breed something better!"
