I Disagreed With A Writer — Is This A Rant?

  • 1 min read

I don’t think so.

I relate to other writers’ pieces on a daily basis.

Being relational is the foundation of Medium’s business model.

Medium pays you for engagement and relating to others.

When your story pops up in my feed, I’ll respond if I’m moved.

The other day this was the case.

When I share my personal opinion and don’t agree with another writer’s opinion this doesn’t automatically make me rant.

Rant = to (…) write (…) in a loud, uncontrolled, or angry way, often saying confused or silly things

Voicing a respectful debate online doesn’t deserve the label of rant.

Critical thinking and debate with reasonable backing points aren’t personal.

Everyone has a unique perspective.

We view things differently. That’s what’s great about the human race, isn’t it?

If I feel inspired to voice my thoughts after reading your work that’s not a rant.
