Supporters within the trans community

Erica Anderson is a conservative American psychologist whom Singal has described as one of his favorite clinicians. Singal frequently promotes Anderson’s work. Anderson may be one of the two trans sensitivity readers Singal says reviewed the Atlantic piece prior to publication.

Corinna Cohn is an American software developer who identifies as transsexual and gender critical. Cohn frequently appears in media to share conservative opinions and criticize various aspects of the trans rights movement.

Robyn Kanner is an American marketing executive who sometimes associates with Singal. It’s possible Kanner was one of the two trans sensitivity readers Singal says reviewed his Atlantic piece prior to publication. Kanner also published a response critical of the piece.

Be Scofield is an American activist critical of new religious movements. Scofield considers criticism of Singal to be a “cult-like attack.” In an analogy, Scofield compares Singal to Martin Luther King: “I taught a graduate course on the radical teachings of Martin Luther King Jr. I’m very aware of the extreme measures taken by government and oppositional forces to silence, ruin and derail people and ideas deemed dangerous, or ideologically wrong. Knowing the history of suppression against the left it is mind boggling to see so many progressives cheer it on or sit idly by.”
