poll for #women #writers: You routinely write about serious issues in your field (e.g., science/health). Another writer, in the middle of his critique of your position, encourages readers to check out an unrelated article you wrote about your dating experiences. You assume he is:
Now that the poll is complete, I can formally respond to Jesse Singal's latest accusations of me: juliaserano.blogspot.com/2018/07/on-jes… - feel free to share, as god knows he's been spreading lies about me far & wide...
here's the TL;DR version of my response. for the record, Singal wasn't singling me out as being "hysterical and opportunistic" - that insult was also intended for people who believe me (e.g., @nberlat & @ZackFord, who he called out in the same Twitter thread)
...and I have to say that the most surreal (not to mention creepiest) aspect of this whole affair is the fact that Ray Blanchard f-ing subtweeted me:
I want add onto something @nberlat says in this thread: the reason why I came forward with my story is because *I can* as an independent writer w/no employer. I know several trans women who've also had bad experiences who don't feel safe publicly sharing.

a THREAD based on my latest piece: I've heard many complaints over the years about how "born that way" arguments are essentialist or pathologizing, and some #LGBTQ folks will say "why do we even have to explain why we exist?"... medium.com/@juliaserano/t… #transgender #queer
...while I sympathize with such sentiments, they overlook the main reason *why* "born that way" arguments have been successful, namely, because they assuage longstanding fears that queerness is somehow contagious. medium.com/@juliaserano/t… #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #queer
...another thing I implicitly tried to convey in this piece is that, while I don't believe #trans or #LGBTQ are "contagious," the social stigma projected on us most certainly is - this is what sociologists call "courtesy stigma"... medium.com/@juliaserano/t… #transgender #queer

My first day back from a social media break, I find out that Ray Blanchard is trying to pathologize me from afar. Yet again...
kinda rich to be called "prolix" by the guy who authored a series of 7–10 papers detailing an ornate and farfetched (& subsequently disproven) theory that can basically be boiled down to: all trans women are perverts, and any trans woman who disagrees with me on this is a liar...
I suppose I may as well share my main 3 debunking-autogynephilia-theory papers. my most thorough is "The Case Against Autogynephilia" (2010) - if it seems too "prolix", it's because Blanchard's theory is chockfull of jargon & caveats that I had to address tinyurl.com/q2whgeu

btw, I've spent almost all of my last 10 days writing the original piece & responding to it. neither essays are monetized, as I want them to be as accessible as possible. so if you appreciate all this work, please consider supporting me on Patreon: patreon.com/juliaserano/ov…
I am exhausted & in dire need of an internet break. but before I go, here are the most pertinent passages of this follow up essay. if you like them, please RT: medium.com/@juliaserano/r…
