On Friday, May 20th 2016 The Signal of Santa Clarita published a syndicated cartoon in their Opinion section.
This cartoon by Yaakov Kirschen depicted:
A transgender female with a statement above her head stating "I'm a woman who was born into a boy's body."
A transgender male with a statement above his head stating "I'm a man who was born into a girl's body."
And what appears to be a man on his hands and knees with the word "Woof" above his head.
After reviewing this cartoon it is clear that they are mocking transgender individuals, and it is atrocious, and sends a clear message as to what the new owners (Paladin Multi-Media Group partners) of The Signal care about.
Our community is better than this and needs to stand together in support of our local transgender community and those around the world.
To show our support for our transgender community we need to cut The Signal of Santa Clarita off at the hands that feed them.
We ask that you cancel your newspaper subscription and that local companies/organizations halt all future advertising with The Signal until The Signal formally acknowledge what they have done and apologizes to the transgender community.
