My name is Shawn, I'm a 26 year old male. I discovered Tori 5 years ago when I got together with my first girlfriend. She was a few years older than me and was a HUGE Tori fan. When I first heard Tori, my literal words were, "Holy shit! Where has this woman been my whole life?!" I fell in love with all of her music and celebrated her entire library of music almost immediately. It became wrapped up in our relationship as well, naturally. We were together for over 2 years. Probably closer to 3. But it was a very messy breakup involving infidelity from her. Tori became EXTREMELY hard to listen to, but my love for her music was bigger. The beautiful lyrics and dynamic emotions she always conveys really helped me to get through the very thing that her music so closely associated with for me. It was a very strange thing to go through. But now I'm feeling happy and healthy. Tori gave me the strength to push forward without my extreme love for women being tainted by the darkness that a woman created in my heart. She healed my heart. I'm a stronger, more well rounded, and much happier person because of Tori. Some day in the future, I might even do something to help the RAIIN organization, whether it's just donating or volunteering or whatever is possible because women's issues have always been important to me and her music helped me open myself up and not be ashamed of my feminine side, but to embrace it and realize that it makes me more of a man.
