Transphobia? Only On CBS

February 12, 2010 ·

First they aired a tranphobic episode of The New Adventures Of Old Christine, then CBS News decided to ditch the accepted guidelines of the AP Stylebook to write this ugly little post, and now this:

CBS was recently criticized for airing an anti-abortion ad during the Super Bowl while refusing to sell ad time to a gay dating site.  CBS’s repeated promotion of ugly stereotypes of transgender people show an obvious disregard for our community. When GLAAD gave the The New Adventures of Old Christine, I criticized them for looking the other way. I hope that they don’t do so this time. It’s time for CBS to stop making jokes on the backs of transgender people.
