Some who joined in the protests later admitted in private that they hadn’t even read the article.

The viciousness of the attacks was fueled by the mob mentality of Facebook.

I then asked critics to respond with philosophical arguments rather than lobbing insults, which was met with claims that I was doing “violence” to marginalized scholars.

To put it all too simply, in her article, Tuvel claimed that the very public cases of Rachel Dolezal’s transracial transition and Caitlyn Jenner’s transgender transition operate according to a similar logic when it comes to thinking about identity and identity politics.

Tuvel argued in favor of both transgender and transracial identities, as well as for a more fluid conception of identity more generally.

The split between what people wrote to both Rebecca Tuvel and to me in private, and what they felt compelled to say in public is one indication that the explosion of personal insults and vicious attacks on social media is symptomatic of something much bigger than the actual issues discussed in Tuvel’s article.
