Read the BBC’s Pathetic Excuse for Recent Transphobic Op-Ed

Last week, the BBC published a truly irresponsible op-ed claiming that trans women are predators who “force” lesbians into having sex with this. And while the backlash has been vocal, it seems the BBC is intent on doubling-down on this shoddily-researched story. “The BBC wants you to give up on this,” tweeted trans author Laura Kate Dale this morning. “Do not. Escalate your complaint. Make it again and say why you are not happy with their response.”

There’s something hilariously obtuse about “some argue the article is flawed.” Very “I’m sorry if YOU were offended” energy!

Nevertheless, we’re persisting:

Three words: escalate, escalate, escalate!
