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.
