What I was told when a mere fifteen is still the most depressing, also most influencing. I had met this girl at a skatepark, she was fourteen, cute as anyone I had ever seen and of course I had the biggest crush on her.

I didn't manage to see past it until she told me ... "When I was twelve, some guy got me pregnant - I couldn't have an abortion legally, so I beat myself in the stomach until it came out." This was in Germany, by the way.
