Thanks for your comment, Furry. It sounds like we both subscribe to the same basic values and principles on this topic, but we disagree on whether or not my actions have lined up with those principles. Do you think it would have been better if I’d framed this article entirely in terms of “here are things that I, a trans person, relate to in this work” and didn’t discuss Page at all? Or could I keep the piece more or less how it is, but cut these kind of wishy-washy sentences that say that Page *could* be trans, because that’s too invasive and speculative? I think your concerns on how I executed this are reasonable ones.
