Have you read me tell anywhere that I agree with this letter or that
I'll vote for "Choice 1"? I'm pretty sure nope, because I do not think
that and I am confident I never said that.

I did not say I disagree. I said that I made no statement of the sorts,
mostly because I did not look into any archive to see whether or not he
had transphobic judgements.

I am sorry but I can't and won't give any sort of credit to an article
using conspirationist mechanism at the bare beginning without any
concrete evidence to back these conspirationnist allegations.

Should I give credit to one trans person saying RMS isn't having
transphobic behaviours or ideas or should I give credit to many people
including some trans saying that he does?

It's far easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
