Thank you David Wade Chambers .

Yes, I think I do have more artistic freedom here. I’m glad to be able to write what I need to write without people making the ridiculous accusation that my work is “hate speech.”

It’s a bizarre leap of logic indeed to accuse a person working to save lives as being engaged in hate speech.

I felt incredibly slapped in the face over that when I got the email telling me that the Quora considered the above piece to be hate speech.

That’s just so absurd that it doesn’t even bear thinking about.

Anyway, I certainly have my work cut out for me here. Attracting readership is proving very difficult.

But I shall keep at it.

All my best to you!
