Media Misrepresentation

2011-10-27_media Emerson Whitney wrote an excellent piece, "Trans Representation in the Media," which appeared on The Huffington Post yesterday.

The article could be sub-titled "Trans Misrepresentation in the Media" because that's what it's all about, that is, how the media mangles transgenders, sometimes on purpose (for its own agenda like at Fox news), sometimes insensitively (like at Saturday Night Live), and sometimes stupidly (like reporters who get our pronouns wrong).

All is not lost, however, and writer Whitney expresses hope that things may change for the better.

Read all about it here.

  1. I would have loved to dress like Diane when I was 12. And I probably would have locked myself in the bathroom and died of embarrassment if someone just SUGGESTED I do that!

    Way to go, Diane!

    As for today's post: I'm still not sure how I feel about comic drag. And my wife is still uncomfortable when I refer to other gurls as "she."
