I’m willing to be doubtful because as you said, slip-ups happen where you accidentally “follow/subscribe” or “like” content you don’t actually mean to do it. The piece you mentioned was also from 1997. That was 20+ years ago. People change. I feel like honestly unless people confront her face-to-face it’s unfair to pass judgement (or she releases an official statement stating her feelings on the subject).

I’m a queer adopted healthcare worker who writers in their spare time. I have a MPH degree.
