    "𝘠𝘦𝘢𝘩, 𝘴𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢 𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘣𝘪𝘢𝘯, 𝘨𝘪𝘳𝘭, 𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘰𝘰"

    Even the panty flashing lesbian fetish material is Evangelion now. A very interpersonal-focused analysis of the hedgehogs dilemma, which has haunted anime for three decades at least by now, that genuinely really impressed me.

    I think I first realized I was sexually attracted to Naruto when I was 12. Like many a young boy of that age I was deeply embroiled in some impassioned and complex sexual experimentation. Masturbating not just for the sake of itself, but in some sort of grand search for identity through the end of penis. Though for me specifically, it wasn't necessarily a benign process, coming to terms with myself as a gay man. Especially in the heart of…
