As a white male, I can wholeheartedly agree with (2). I saw your interview on Democracy Now, and…I don’t know…would it be an op-ed piece to report on how current or impending government activity effects your life or could effect your life as a transgender man? I don’t know.
My other comment would be that I would comfortable referring to what you call objectivity (even though you were quoting) as centrism, which I do think is dead. Especially now that the white house has started pushing their lies more openly than ever. Informed people are swiveling their heads looking for a trustworthy voice, and I think they will find it from diverse sources that don’t reconcile. And maybe they’ll end up in an identity crisis in which they find their own voice. That’s my hope anyway.
