I really don’t know what the Titanic has to do with any of this, my reality is certainly quite far away from drinking scotch in the office and making obscene comments at secretaries. The frustration that I personally have with Medium is that my articles, curated and all, don’t get read anymore because the algorithm changed. The new publications publish ridiculous opinion based articles about a number of important topics, but they don’t dare step into actually taking on anything with deep criticism. Writing for feminism certainly seems like a big win on Medium, as does writing about LGBTQ, or being almost vulgar in “vulnerability” around topics of sex and perversion. I don’t think these things should be lumped into the same category, but on Medium, they sort of have. What does that mean for me? It means the article about a guy who decided that drinking a man's urine after anal sex is the path to world peace is going to get the front page, where my article global trade and world peace falls short of 1k reads. Not exactly inspiring.
