The BBC should be considered an Trans-antagonistic Hate News Site

Once upon a time the BBC was a liberal and progressive newsite that provided objective news and opinion.

However, since before JK Rowling was revealed to be a Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist, a group who often use the term "Gender Critical Feminist" as a euphenism, the UK media has becotrame increasing trans-antagonistic in thier coverage of trans people and our issues.

Nowhere is this more evident than at the BBC where the government funded news organization has taken steps that recently that have caused numerous LGBTQ employees to leave the company:

At the center of the epicenter of this exodus is the decision to publish a trans-antagonistic article accusing transpeople of being abusers and predators trying to pressure lesbians into having sex with trans women. They do this using a poll with only 80 respondants from a trans-antagonistic source as evidence:

Then to add fuel to the fire, one of the people interviewed by the article, Adult film actress Lily Cade, released a hate filled screed against trans people calling on the general public to commit violence and even lynch trans women:

The BBC responded not by taking the awful article down, but by just removing Ms Cade out of said article:

Of course the guardian isn't much better than the BBC... And all of this comes on the heals of the BBC leaving the Stonewall Diversity Champions Program out of fear of bias.

A fear of bias that seems to come up if it in any way is in favor of Trans people and not against as the BBC has no issue defending their trans-antagonistic article:

I doubt they would use a poll of a 1000 Norweigns saying trans people are alright despite it being a better poll than the one they used:

My point being this, until they take steps to address and correct this bias, the BBC should be considered an anti-Trans news source.

Texas lawmakers proposed a bill to separate trans children from their families

Texas lawmakers proposed a bill to separate trans children from their families, labeling transgender care 'child abuse'

The Texas state legislature is attempting to pass a bill that would separate trans children from their families for providing them with gender-affirming care.

SB1646 would prohibit parents from "administering or supplying, or consenting to or assisting in the administering or supplying of puberty suppression prescription drug or cross-sex hormone to a child, other than an intersex child, for the purpose of gender transitioning or gender reassignment."

The bill would change the state's definition of child abuse to include parents allowing trans minors to access hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and puberty blockers, two types of treatment commonly prescribed to trans minors by medical professionals.

Advocates like Adri Perez, a policy and advocacy strategist for the ACLU of Texas, say the bill could cost trans children their lives if passed.

The lawmakers of my state are monsters!
