Meh, I don't see the big deal then. Could you imagine how damaging that would be to just cut it up or even take it away right now?
I've never had a particular comfort item, but I can't sleep without a blanket. It could be 80 degrees in my house and I still need one, it makes me feel secure. So if my husband told me to sleep without one and he hid all of the blankets in the house he'd get a big F you, lol.
