Tumbling tumbrel needs

Founding editor Bhaskar Sunkara posts asking readers to Help Defend Jacobin magazine from litigation threatened by Catherine Brennan. Ms. Brennan objected to the earlier Jacobin article CounterPunch and the War on Transgender People, by Samantha Allen. Allen's critique includes saying Brennan,
"once served as a liaison on the American Bar Association’s Commission on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. In July of 2012, a petition circulated to have Brennan removed from that position because, to put it mildly, she flatly rejected the 'Gender Identity' half of her job description."
