Female Editors Reject AfterEllen, Other Sites’ Anti-Trans Agenda

Female Editors Reject AfterEllen, Other Sites’ Anti-Trans Agenda:

Once a leading pop culture website for queer women, AfterEllen has devolved into a hotbed of anti-transgender rhetoric since editor Trish Bendix and other writers were ousted by Evolve media, which purchased the then-10-year-old site in 2014.

In the years since Bendix’s departure, under the leadership of Memoree Joelle, the site has increasingly leaned into trans-exclusionary radical feminist or TERF territory. Now, the editors of other sites for women in the queer community have banned together to denounce TERF sites like AfterEllen, according to Buzzfeed.
