My greatest abrasion lies in the payments. To be perceived as premium, to access stories behind a paywall, all of that.

Not because I cannot afford it — I live with many privileges I don’t deserve — but because not everyone can. There are too many whose stories deserve to be told, and too many who depend on this life-breath of others. This served as a daily check-in for some, and I miss it.

I won’t actively buy into Medium’s transformation to another classism application.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
