my actual writing, if you're curious

For some writers, the reasoning behind the take-down request is more personal. “I would like for Thought Catalog to say, ‘We will no longer serve as a platform for hatred, misinformation, and prejudice,’ and then make good on that promise,” said writer/activist Miri Mogilevsky over email. “But I also understand that they will not do this… So, my other motivation for having my writing removed from the site is so that I can be more consistent with my own principles.” She continued, “I don’t want to link my friends to a piece I have on Thought Catalog and have them accidentally come across another piece demeaning them for their identity. I don’t want to list Thought Catalog on my bio or C.V. and have people think, ‘Wow, so she’s okay with that racist/sexist/homophobic/ableist/transphobic stuff they keep publishing?’ No, I am not okay with that.” Her work, too, has been expunged from the website.
