Like, I mean, is it that difficult to say, because this person has caused harm, I refuse to look at their work? I refuse to even put it into consideration?
What would be the consequences? Well, you'd not look at their work. And yeah, you've narrowed the field a bit.
But the field is so. Fucking. Broad. There are so. Many. Other. People.
You'll have to look harder to find worthy work, but… is that such a problem?
There have been people who've refused, on principle, for a year, to not read books by men, or by white people, or by straight people. What happened to them?
Well, they worked really hard, but then they discovered that there was a BROADER universe of things beyond the usual works that were considered canons. I recall reading testimonies of these exercises and they were like, “Hey, I really broadened by horizons. There's so much good work out there that doesn't get recognition.”
