GLAAD:New York Post Headline Dehumanizes Transgender People

This is from the folks over at GLAAD:

February 7, 2008

Just one week after GLAAD issued an alert encouraging our community to respond to a sensational New York Post headline, the tabloid today ran yet another egregious headline, “Axis of She-Vil.” The article, about the Iranian government’s plans to subsidize sex reassignment surgeries, also included the defamatory sub-headline, “Death to Gays But Free Ops For Irani Trannies.”

“The Post’s latest dehumanizing headline is outrageous,” said Rashad Robinson, GLAAD’s Senior Director of Media Programs. “It reflects the tabloid’s ongoing disregard for journalistic standards and its blatant contempt for transgender people and the entire LGBT community.”

TAKE ACTION NOW!

GLAAD strongly urges you to contact the New York Post and demand that it stop sensationalizing the LGBT community.
