It's called a Mytake. Not an Ourtake. If i'd spend hours writing a mytake, i would find it pretty annoying that anyone with the word "editor" next to their names can just change anything they dont like about my take. Its my take. I wrote it the way i like it. I wrote it the way i want it. I dont like it when anyone can edit my take. My take which i spend hours writing. And they get to change anything they dont like about it. I'm not even sure if i can edit my own take. But they can yet its MY take.
This is all just an idea ove had for a while. I haven't written a take in a while. I just dont like the idea of anyone being able to edit my takes to their hearts content.
Am i alone in this?

As people have already said, Editors can't edit other people's myTakes. Only admins can do that.
And we do it because frankly, 95% of all Takes require at least some editing to be brought up to speed. As we actively distribute many such Takes, we don't want poor-quality pieces circulating with the GirlsAskGuys name on it.
For the record, nothing is ever edited for content (unless it violates GaG policy). It's only edited for quality purposes; i. e., spelling, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, etc. Media may be added for presentation purposes and if that happens, the writer is typically told about it and asked if they're okay with the additions.
Yes, you wrote it. But if we're going to Promote it or Feature it, it has to hit a certain quality bar. :)0
