Be empathetic here — she’s sixteen and is likely receiving sexual advances from men 2–3x her age. She responded by pulling her innocent piece down from the Internet.

It’s a shame that she was forced to do so. I wouldn’t pull a piece like that down because of a few pervs, but I definitely would have at 16.

I would encourage you to remove this comment in case she sees it and is further hurt, but of course, I leave that judgement up to you.

By the way, out of curiosity I read a few other of your pieces and it seems you have a lot of interesting opinions. I won’t say I agree with all of them, but I’m following you to read more.

All the best to you in your journey.
