In your latest episode, you severely insulted a sexual minority. As an LGBT friendly show, this is an even more appalling offense.

To:
Ryan Murphy Productions, 5555 Melrose Ave Chevalier Bldg. Los Angeles, CA 90038 USA
Please apologize for offending the Intersex community by referring to them as "losers" in this season of The New Normal!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I was shocked when this episode aired in the UK to hear your swipe at intersex people. I can only assume you don't know any; if you did you would know what an incredibly hard life intersex people can suffer, from the cruelty of other people to the long-term medical problems caused by their condition. I have loved the show but between this horrible insult and the heteronormative disappointment of the whole "boy = sports, girls clearly don't play" episode I have started to have strong reservations about it. Shame on you and whoever wrote this, you are in danger of being no better than Nancy at her racist, homophobic worst, or the broad-brush het shows you probably think you are so much better than.

      Transgender people, Intersex people, and many others are portrayed poorly on TV. 25 years ago (or less) it was the limpwristed gay guys who were the victims. Let's not pass this down to the one below you on the mainstream-acceptance ladder.

      A good friend of mine is transgendered, and this is important to him. My mother has a good friend who is transgendered, and this would be important to her. In fact, I am sending this petion to them right now...

      I am tired of 'edgy' comedy trying to get things by and thinking they need to poke fun at someone else so no one will notice
