I've kept this bottled up for a long time, but truth be told, it's hard out there for an Erin. I'm an Erin, and I've been an Erin for a long time... my whole life actually, but that doesn't make it any easier.

I still have flashbacks of a teacher in elementary school regularly calling me 'Urine' since she couldn't manage to wrap her head around 'Erin.' And don't even get me started on the difference between 'Erin' and 'Aaron.' Clearly, one's a girl's spelling and one's a boy's, but aside from that, they're actually pronounced differently. I'm so glad Buzzfeed has vindicated me. They've recognized how hard is out there for an Erin. It's about time someone did!
