I wanted to thank you all. I got out of an emotionally abusive relationship. The Abusive Partner Checklist seriously opened my eyes and the support and help of the staff made the process of getting out and coping so much easier. It may have taken me a while, but I finally did it.

And Heather - you are a truly awesome woman. I absolutely admire how comfortable you are with your body and sexuality.

Thanks again, guys.

Hi, I just recently started posting on scarleteen. I read a lot of posts by scarleteen volunteers, sexperts. Your views, your knowledge are so wonderful and powerful, there are no words. And all of it comes from your passion and intellect.

Heather, whatever views you have on reproductive rights, gender and sexual orientation the way you explain it, the way you connect with the subject is impeccable and reforming! Every time I read anything you say, i really can't explain the purity, the power, the innocence, the intelligence and the resonance of unlimitedness which rings true immediately to the soul. For some, it might take time for the mind to assemble it into their understanding, but the heart and soul catch it fastest! when you say something, i get it. i would never have thought of it, but i feel i have felt like that forever! You some how assemble knowledge into the brain in a way the brain can emotionally powerfully grasp it.

I know the word soul, and spiritual or whatever is weird... but I can't explain it any other way. How you believe gender is not binary, monogamy and the concept of " the one " is also binary! Now I have felt like this my whole life, I tried saying things like polygamy and belief, but the way you just said it.. monogamy, binary.. it just fit into the brain correctly! It assembled the thoughts beautifully in which the heart and mind could respond with more confidence. No wonder you, yourself resonate so much confidence.

I have never believed in idols, but I really feel connected to your work , your words. You are truly brilliant. Its one thing to have ideas and knowledge, its another thing to assemble them in your own mind, body and spirit in such a way, you draw strength, confidence, peace of mind and joy from it. Most of us just feel confused. You feel the same way, but doubt, confuse it under all sorts of external factors and internal turmoil. But in all that noise, your words come through and go straight to the core being and reinforce.

You are an inspiration. Your understanding on men, women etc everything! is fantastic ! I can go on and on.

Every scarleteen volunteer's words not only give you information, but also comfort, warmth. Its just information. But the way its put, the way its explained, so much support and understanding.

I have tried to say what i feel, but am afraid only 1% can be written and vocalized. I just thank scarleteen team, all of us are so profound and helpful in ways you can't imagine. You really can't. I want to thank you, but it would be an under statment. But still, I say thank you for being here.

Rosemat and babybear: thanks. [Smile]

I've personally been having a hard time of things lately, and those thank you's were real day-makers. I'm really glad that what we do here has been of so much use to you. [Smile]
