'For the record, I think "attention" is a perfectly valid reason to do something.
"Oh, you just want attention."
"She's doing it just for attention."
"Don't give them any attention; it's what they want."
So what? What's wrong with attention? My life (literally, the experience of my own personal existence) is completely comprised of attention, those things and events and people to whom I have decided to allocate my attention, and which have returned that attention to me. Attention is a perfectly natural, good thing to want. Humans are social creatures; we only are so powerful because we pay attention to each other'
