Reply from Cartoonstock received by e-mail today
It appears that on transgender issues, some poor decisions have been made and we agree that over the years many cartoons have been accepted on this topic which fall short of the standards we would like to uphold. Over the next few days we will therefore be reviewing our editing of these cartoons, removing those which we feel are unnecessarily offensive and recataloguing those which have been tagged as relating to transsexuals and transgender issues, when in fact the observation or point being made is not really about those topics at all.
We agree that there is no need to portray transsexuals in a negative manner and will be treating the above action as a priority. Please bear with us as all changes do take some time to propagate throughout the CartoonStock site, then a little longer to propagate across search engine results such as Google Images, but our intention is to be fair and certainly not derogatory to anybody.
