At the beginning of this year, I posted about the criminal insensitivity of Riverfront Times reporter Chad Garrison. Now he is at it again with this transphobic blog post.*
"Shemale" is an offensive term often used to describe transgender people. The term is most frequently used in porn that fetishizes trans bodies. Please comment on Mr. Garrison's post to let the RFT know that you do not appreciate transphobia in their publication.
UPDATE 12/21: Thanks to your comments, Chad Garrison has changed the headline of his post. I hope that he will continue to educate himself on issues relevant to the trans community, so that his writing for the RFT will be more sensitive in the future.
* Thanks to Anita Fitzwater for alerting me to this post.
