Wait wait wait, they're just letting trannies query them randomly? Like, if you're a tranny you can reach out to them and they won't just throw it in the trash? And they'll give them free critiques too?Not sure if this qualifies for YABookgate -- I'm not sure if YA is something this agency deals with -- but it fits the larger theme of "random sex weirdo on Twitter has a shitfit about some anodyne statement and successfully gets someone fired" that is running rampant through the literary world. The Tobias Agency, by the way, currently has its feed protected, so I assume they're taking shit from both sides, some of which is most definitely deserved.
Madeline Pine, by the way, seems to be a nobody -- just a random enby / tranny / fruitcake who was lucky enough to have its tantrum go viral enough to cost somebody their job. I follow a ton of writers on Twitter, so I do see her/his/its tweets somewhat frequently. All I know about her is that she's a "sensitivity reader," which I take as evidence that such people are exactly the sort of insane censorious fuckheads I assume them to be.
Anyone who isn't familiar with querying should look into it so you understand why I'm pointing this out. Same with the critique. Some people will charge you hundreds for that.
