Replace transgender with another minority group in that reply. (which is still up) Replace it with gay, christian, or jewish. I’m certain more decisive action would have been taken right away. I’m certain it would not still be up. Why do I need to ask people to replace transgender with another minority to see the issue?
Why should I wake up to news site reporting on a growing conservative movement to eliminate the entire class of people I am a part of, and have to see people on these forums openly discussing forcing us into religious conversion therapy? Conversion therapy being, of course, torture that doesn’t even work.
Why are moderators here unclear if such blatant hate speech is actionable under the ToS? Gamespot took a very public stance against transphobia in the recent videogame controversy and has employed trans editors in the past. That trans people can’t be safe to use the websites community feature is deeply troubling. Frankly admin intervention may be needed here.
Would a past trans GS editor like Carolyn Petit no longer be welcome on the GS forums?
EDIT: This site currently employs a trans woman editor. Would she, Jessie Earl, even feel comfortable or safe using this sites community features?
