The plagiarized post has been taken down.

I don’t know why, whether the “author” suffered from a guilty conscience/embarrassment or tumblr simply deleted it. Anyway, it’s gone. I feel a lot better. It was surprisingly painful to have somebody steal words that I felt so passionate about for a little bit of queer cred or an ego boost or whatever.

    I saw that and I’m glad. I wanted to call him out on it, but I figured it would be better if you did since you wrote it. I do write trans articles myself, and I am proud of what i write when it inspires people, and at the same time when someone else has a terrific article that I think people should read, I link them to it(I’ve linked people to you a few times). It is great in that sense that we can all share ideas with each other. I think it’s pathetic to plagerize not even because it hurts the person stolen from, but when a person does it it’s like they’re saying to themselves ‘I have no faith in myself that I am smart enough to create something great on my own, so I’m not even going to try. I’d rather take someone else’s work and have people think I’m great than to explore my own talents which I don’t think I have.’
