let me get this straight: Singal is threatening a writer for saying she's spoken w/trans women who've had bad experiences with him?!? well, here's my story. other trans women's accounts are shared in comments section: juliaserano.blogspot.com/2017/12/my-jes…

...this is my critique of his Atlantic piece, along with links to my & other people's critiques of Singal's large body of writing on #transgender issues, which are horribly slanted: patreon.com/posts/19542136
