But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it.

In another world, it is you,
and we’re better for it.
I hope you know that I wanted that.
That a part of me always will.
