Negative feedback

I got a comment from Twitter from someone who read my last post, pointed out where I mentioned that I could get a job but don’t, and where I mentioned that I am sad about my level of privilege. She then responded with “Oh, you poor dear. #tinyviolin”. I didn’t respond as well as I should’ve, mostly because I felt like my actual issues - the fact that I still need to find ways to overcome my debt, and that I need love and affection just like anyone else - were being minimized.

After some conversation, I realized I was taking the whole thing too hard, and that her comment wasn’t constructive, or nice. And I don’t want to engage with comments that aren’t constructive or nice. So, enough with that.

I have some thoughts about why this is art, and how it could be misperceived. This entire project has some issues, and I am - I think - aware of them.

I’m 100% hoping that someone responds to this and helps me grow. I want to further conversation on this topic, and on whether or not this was an interesting idea.

Now, back to providing value.

Beam me home, Scotty!
