Is Jesse Singal Really Impartial About Trans Care?: An impartial writer does not substitute his own pet peeves for the actual beliefs of marginalized advocates. They do not hide it when they interview a coordinated group of activists. They do not obscure the beliefs and actions of the people they discuss. They do not attempt to portray an open advocate of conversion therapy as an innocent victim slandered by the accusation of his own beliefs or a mother who refused her child trans care for explicitly political reasons as motivated only by therapeutic caution.
