As I was able to research recently, Rebecca, I lost some 200 fans on Medium right about the time I took a very strong stance on BLM and race. My social media guy said that I was purging my list. You're damned right I am. If the cost of fandom is that I have to subvert my goddamned integrity then bye bye to those fans. Those were conditional: I'll read you ONLY if you validate my POV. This is now how we grow. This is how we maintain the status quo.
