Since my piece on Kiwi Farms and Keffals was posted two days ago, most of the direct interaction I’ve received has been positive. And I’m assuming that most of these positive comments came from people with different politics than mine, but that doesn’t surprise me considering who has been retweeting it. But I’ve started to receive some negative attention from people who share many of my beliefs, and they are drawing their own conclusions about the kind of person I am. This morning, I got a particularly aggressive message from someone I consider a friend, and that and a few other criticisms of my piece have motivated me to put out this personal statement.
