Hi, Ms. Ditum, or Sarah, whichever you prefer. You’ve currently got me blocked on Twitter so I felt that since I had a few pressing questions to ask you and no contact info on hand I would write you an open letter on Thought Catalog instead.
I confess that I hadn’t been aware of your online profile until the stir caused by your recent article condemning coverage of Leelah Alcorn’s suicide. When I started seeking out your work in the process of writing this piece, I was impressed at your prolific output at The Guardian, The New Statesman and other outlets.
In an effort to further my education I began reading through your past articles, conveniently collected on your website. I discovered you were the author of a few pieces I remember admiring in the past, like this piece a friend shared with me back in May.
