You wouldn't need to

defend it from anyone. While others would likely do that on your behalf, anyway, it shouldn't matter. As a writer, you are an observer of the human condition sharing an insight as seen through the unique lens of your soul. You do this because... writing... or painting... or composing... is what you do! Sometimes people might relate. Other times not. So be it. As far as I can see, it's fine whether your story is left here, safely shared with some friends, or if it's moved "out there" where more would see it but it would be exposed to the elements. Certainly put my name on the list of those who don't want to see you taking it down - unless of course it was only temporary, like the way one might move a table out of the dining room to create a space for dancing, returned after the party was over. :)

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
