Tell the Stranger to Stop Enabling Transphobia!

This petition had 586 supporters

The article by Katie Herzog entitled “The Detransitioners: They Were Transgender, Until They Weren't” was met by outrage from the transgender community when it was published on June 28th 2017. The article in question sites discredited science, excludes the trans community's response, and promotes dangerous narratives about trans people. The publication The Stranger has a history of publishing pieces that are problematic over the protests of marginalized communities and then running a response piece by a member of that community. It’s hard not to see this as anything other than a crass tactic to increase readership on the backs of the marginalized. We expect and demand greater editorial integrity from our publications. Tell editorial director Dan Savage that we will no longer accept having the validity of our identities being used to drive circulation at The Stranger.
