People Ask Me Why It Matters

People ask me why it matters. Why it matters where someone else writes. Why it matters what someone else does. As if we are able to separate one piece of writing from who someone is or what they support. You may find it spurious or judgmental to classify one publication as a garbage dump and another as a pyramid scheme, but the real question is why are you offended by my feelings?




A collection of things or people. An object made of pieces fitted together. A work of art made by grouping found or unrelated objects. A publication on Medium.
