Kristin, I think you have really found a great way to shed light on what a person feels like to have to conceal the fact that he/she stutters. One does not often think of what it takes to not let anyone know that he/she is different. It's incredible to think that some individuals would continue hiding their stuttering, when it seems easier to just have it in the open. But like you said in your paper, some people do just that! This analogy is a perfect way to explain this to others. Great insight! Thanks!
