I'd suspect he measured it to his regular audience, which i'm going to go out on a limb and say is largely vague lefty men between about 28 and 60 who all this TERF business is a possibly important political distraction from the building of an upper middle class socialist republic (this is a guess). It's Fintan's 'here's your pre-formed opinion, readers now don't be making a show of yourselves in the trans wars'.

I've found between Suzanne Moore and the Roisin Ingle that I can't take the all out 'I'm not actually trans myself but fuck this person to hell' tweeters seriously any more. It's that thing we do in the patriarchy where the young new warriors won't listen to the old warriors and can only be taught through a few bloody battles what someone tried to tell them by the campfire...

I was on yesterday at one point and I saw at least three men (CIS men, Irish) tweeting about how [journalist name] shouldn't be a voice for the trans community.

They were not including retweets of trans writing or literature here, just like, y'know, sticking the old oar in. Plenty of tweets of support from the usual suspects and general unquestioning interaction.

The interface for the internet should be a huge hi-def mirror.

Is there context for that bit?

Like is he

A: writing his romantics memoirs
B: writing a painful character who is meant to be unsettling having a sexual experience

Because he succeeded at one of those things exceptionally.
