“Once again, [it’s] making a young woman feel like s–t for no reason,” she went on. “I think I did feel s–t for awhile about admitting that, and then I thought, ‘How ridiculous is that?’ I’m 24 and I can’t choose who I love?… There’s a reason why I’m not with someone my age—It hasn’t worked.

“People want to have a say on who you go out with, where you go to lunch.
