Transphobia is leaking out on to DU again, in GD as usual


The replies in this thread range from the misinformed to the absolutely offensive. I could not imagine being a trans person thinking about reading DU and seeing the posters on this site repeat the myth that most trans people "change back" and make jokes about the struggles of a prominent trans person.

Not really sure what point I have in posting this, just that I was a bit mad after reading that and wanted to say something on a part of DU where LGBTQ people are reading.
