On Twitter and Facebook, I was called a skank and a liar and people encouraged me to kill myself. Twice, I did try to take my own life.
When I went to a dance competition I saw a girl there who was wearing a T-shirt she made. It read: “Matt 1, Daisy 0.”
Predictably, xojane was forced to close the comments. Because people are terrible.
Now if you could use a cheap laugh to bounce pack from that helping of depression, you can visit Deadspin. There’s no way that guy is sober.
