Vicious transphobic crap

Write to the Press Complaints Commission to complain about this appalling garbage in the Observer. It has no place anywhere, but especially not in the supposed newspaper of the left. And especially not as a supposed representative of feminism.

The relevant code of practice clause is 12(i): The press must avoid prejudicial or pejorative reference to an individual’s race, colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation or to any physical or mental illness or disability.

Many thanks to E and L.

Edited to reflect that the article is technically in the Observer, the Guardian’s sister paper on Saturdays, even though on Guardian’s website.
