Like, I tolly didn't mean to sound all 'wah-wah-wah, I am so oppressed' in the whole silly Xanadu thing. I mean, if a family can't shame you for liking Xanadu, what good are they? Furthermore, I would like to say that shame in general gets a bad rap. Shame has helped to make me a much more fucked up and interesting person, which is, of course, a must for a writer.
Got to run.
