- — Matt Pearce (@mattdpearce)Sat, Jan 18 2014 18:24:32They are going to teach this Grantland story in journalism school. I don't mean that as a compliment. http://grantland.com/features/a-mysterious-physicist-golf-club-dr-v/ …

- — James Ball (@jamesrbuk)Sun, Jan 19 2014 00:25:43The most chilling phrase "Before I told him about her past"- the reporter went around outing a woman as trans to her associates. Appalling.
Journalists criticize Caleb Hannan and Grantland.
There were many, many other journalists who had retweeted other people's criticisms or links to critical blog posts about the piece. This is just a sampling of those who wrote about it directly.
