One rule of thumb that the first letter writer might consider is that if the same thing keeps happening and YOU are the thing in common, the cause is probably you. The thing to think about is why you set yourself up for these situations. Maybe picking crazy women makes you feel powerful and sane. Maybe you don't feel valuable enough to insist on appropriate behavior. Maybe you confuse anxiety with lust (surprisingly easy to do). QC has a point. Ask your friends.

B of all, 9-year-old me is jealous that you managed to eat the entire thing of those biscuits. My mom thought I was so weird for wanting to eat the dough, and she was pretty sure it wasn't something that was healthy for me, so I was only allowed the tiniest snippets! Why is that stuff so tasty, even raw?

I'm glad I made it through to the end. The end was worth the read.
This is the first time I've ever read something about an actual individual NFL cheerleader. They're usually voiceless. I'm glad she's speaking up.

Ugh, that's awful (the treatment and unfair pay that is, not the lawsuit).
More power to her! Litigation is such an important aspect of enforcing fair labor practices, and really civil rights in general, but it's a hard road to travel. I hope the suit goes well and that they can get some restitution.
