Right-Wing Media’s Latest Dangerous Attack On Transgender People

Right-Wing Media’s Latest Dangerous Attack On Transgender People:

“Right-wing media pundits are mocking efforts by schools and employers to ensure that transgender students and staff aren’t repeatedly and intentionally misgendered, calling it ‘political correctness’ gone ‘wild.’ But using someone’s appropriate pronoun is not only a journalistic best practice — it’s also a vital step in ensuring the health and safety of transgender people, especially youth, who are at extremely high risk for encountering bullying and violence and engaging in suicidal ideation.”
