Desistence

Nevertheless, she persisted

[Author note 3] I’ve added and removed this post so many times now, and it upsets me that I feel as scared as I do about this topic. What I’ve realised is that the reason I’m so scared is that the original essay included some (I think mild) criticisms of Jesse Singal’s reporting on transgender issues. Like many transgender people, I’m not a fan, and I really wish he would just stop writing about us at all.
