    According to the NME, the ex-wife of Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace has accused Rolling Stone of "misgendering" her in an article, and publishing uncensored photos of the singer topless.

    The NME said, "Artist Heather Hannoura split from Grace in 2013, but not for reasons relating to the singer identifying as transgender and becoming known as a woman."

    Hannoura said that Rolling Stone botched the article, writing on Facebook that, "Rolling Stone has never published a photograph of a non trans women's nipples uncensored before, which, to me, reads as them making arbitrary distinctions between trans and non trans women, which is f***ed up," she wrote. "Everyone's tits should be legal. In my opinion, this is not a subversive decision aimed at giving censorship the middle finger, it's a blatant example of misgendering, of gender inequality, and a general slap in the face to anyone who expects to have their gender identity respected."

    She continued: "ANYWAYS, I wrote to Rolling Stone after the piece came out but (surprise) they haven't replied so I'm posting the letter I sent them here in the hopes that it opens a couple of eyes to the tired, biased, conservative, one sided "journalism" they are perpetuating. Oh, and I fixed the photo too. Believe me, I want everyone's tits out, I am in no way supporting the idea that censorship of women's nipples is ok at all, but since Rolling Stone censors women's nipples the photo should have looked a little more like this."

    Laura Jane Grace, who hasn't responded to the article yet, publicly came out as a transgender woman in 2012.
