Rob Hutters is creating essays on touchy subjects

Hi,

I'm a web developer by day and essayist by night. 

I write about topics few dare touch. I talk about why people commit suicide, why happiness isn't as simple as a choice, and the howling agony of living with post-traumatic stress disorder. 

Range? I cover sensitive topics, such as shame, depression, suicide, victim blaming, moral failings, the burden of monogamy, and bounded rationality. I'll address whatever makes you uncomfortable.

I'm open to suggestions from patrons!



What credibility do I have?
I lived in mortal danger as a child without recourse, tortured by a sadist. It makes for a poor life, but a great story. 



Essays? 
To essayer means to try, in French. Essays are my preferred way of expressing myself. They take about 6 months to write.

For what purpose? I try to voice what trauma victims can't say, champion their plight for understanding and support, so they can breathe more easily in what they feel is a hostile world.




I have begun work on my next essay, You don't want to know, on why people commit suicide. There are so many left behind with no answers. 

Let's change that, together :)
