Well, I found four responses. My point in bringing that up was that I was very clear that I was supporting you regardless of your belief system, because you were important as a person to me. That was the message I was trying to convey anyway. Sorry if it wasn’t clear.
It wasn’t as hard as I thought it might be to find these posts either, and to tell you the truth, Randomly Me, as easy as it was to find me teasing and giggling with you on this post, THIS statement here, hurts my feelings. In addition to that, the more I think about your closing paragraph of this post, the more hurt I feel.
You’re right I haven’t read much of your recent work, and I get that it means a thing for you with respect to our engagement with one another. And I guess you could take it as a snub, but I believe that is terribly unfair. The homepage shows me what the homepage shows me, in the first place.
In the second place, when I look at some of my more recent work that has nothing to do with any of this, I don’t see you on my posts either.
I’m also not entirely sure what that has to do with the behavior issue that was called out. It really has nothing at all to do with it, in fact. Therefore, I feel attacked and insulted because it seems like you’ve only brought this up to question my sincerity with regards to my ability to be inclusive.
And let me be clear — it doesn’t hurt because there is any truth to it. There is no truth to that insinuation. It is patently false and it bothers me because it is such a complete misrepresentation of who I am especially as it relates to YOU.
So, this will be my last post to you with respect to THIS particular issue — Elliot’s post and Danna’s behavior that prompted it. I’m done talking about that.
However, I have to say, I don’t feel good about the way this interaction has ended. In fact, I feel pretty gross about it. I feel your last paragraph was intended to be hurtful towards me. Which is very sad. I didn’t deserve it.
In any event here are my responses to your “Coming Out” post:
I hadn’t heard. Ok, I’m sorry, but I giggled a biscuit laughing at this part. You are delightful.medium.com
