REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
So I’m looking for actual evidence of the outing that Cathy Brennan did on tumblr.
I want screenshots and quotes, please.
It is very important and I can’t tell you guys how or why, but let me just say: I might be able to de-legitimize her in Baltimore.
PLEASE SEND ME ALL YOUR INFORMATION.
THIS IS A SERIOUS REQUEST!
Well, some of the details are hard to come by since her Tumblr blog of the time was deleted, but the post that contains the email she sent to the child’s school (the “girl” in the subject heading is a trans guy) is still on her external blog. That’s the main act being talked about, though she also is reported to have sent letters to other officials in his town.
Yeah, she documented the outing herself. That’s how little she fears the consequences. In her mind, the fact that she was contacting the school about his behavior gives her plausible deniability, like the outting was just an unforeseen side effect… at her most honest moments she says “I didn’t out him *because* he’s trans”. At her least honest ones, she says she didn’t out anyone at all ever, because in her mind having the pretext should cancel it out.
You can find screenshots of some of their exchanges by going to Google and searching “bugbrennan rufus” or “bugbrennan cara”, that brings up cached results from her deleted Tumblr that you can at least view in preview. Ms. Brennan now maintains that he made rape threats, but that description seems a bit… well, she has a broad definition of what is rape (a transsexual woman who likes women qualifies, for instance) and what is a threat (telling someone to go jump off a cliff is one). She’s got a lot of screen shots up on that page but none of the actual threats.
When she received actual violent rape threats from another Tumblr user (an adult cis transvestite fetishist) as part of the chain of events that led to her Tumblr deletion, she posted the actual threats.
