Among other reasons, this is why I love Charming Bitch.  Brutal honesty about the things that usually scare most people, or at the very least make them cringe, is hard to come by.  I have been contemplating a post on the very same subject, and after re-writing a post about 5 times, I have decided not to post my own thoughts due to, mainly, fear.  I don’t want it to be taken the wrong way, so I will direct you to Shannon’s site and leave it at that.  Her post is superb – I meant what I said about the honesty.
