14 Reasons 10 Days Later

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!

    It was a fantastic post! I’m not surprised it got a lot of hits. A lot of concepts that don’t always occur to people, I would imagine.

    eyeopener. for an outsider like me, that is.

    Glad to hear it! Very well written! I just sent it out to my email subscriber list of 3000+ as I thought it was really quite important to share 🙂 http://transthetics.com/14-reasons-why-its-not-okay-to-out-someone-as-trans-american-trans-man/
