On April 19 I made a post entitled “14 Reasons Why It’s Not Okay to Out Someone as Trans.” Then I got on a plane to go to Europe for work.
Folks, I had no idea that this topic and post would hit such a nerve. It was crazy! People were coming to the site from all over the world, and some were reblogging the post and then reblogging the reblogging.
Usually when I make a new post, I get a couple hundred hits on this blog, but on April 19 alone, the blog had 3 hits shy of 3000! And the next day was more of the same!
I thought I would share with you (now that I’m back from my trip) the grand totals regarding the “14 Reasons” post.
In the past 10 days there have been:
11,295 hits on the American Trans Man blog
8725 views of the “14 Reasons” post + 25 syndications
112 responses in the comments section (granted, many of them mine)
These numbers don’t even count the views and comments of all the re-posts on other blogs.
And so thanks to all of you who contributed to this activity and great discussion!
