As the ONLY true left wing paper, the MS needs to show solidarity with our trans friends, not publish disgusting 'jokes' like these that wouldn't look out of place in the Daily Mail. This is 2020, not 1920, for God's sake.

seriously transphobic, not remotely funny, indefensible.

The Morning Star should be better than this and have repeatedly proved they aren't. The apology they issued doesn't go far enough and given it isn't the first apology isn't believable either.

Fucking disgusting! My brother is trans and I already notice all the nasty comments on social media, but for a newspaper to do this is bloody outrageous!

Just shameful. Not remotely socialist, socialism is about solidarity with the oppressed.

Disappointed after all the good work the Morning Star does it has lowered it's standards - I am lucky as I am comfortable with the gender I was born into but so many aren't - a, concerned that the standards of reporting in the MS have slipped so low
