Chad Grills, Stephanie Postles, Lacey Peace, have you seen this article that appeared in your publication today?

I’m hoping that it just escaped your attention, and that you find anti-LGBTQ insults to be unacceptable. Negatively judging a man because of non-gender-conforming attire is not only puerile and arrogant, but it reinforces negative stereotypes against LGBTQ people, furthering societal stigmatization and furthering the suffering of inherently harmless people.

I was fairly astonished, honestly, to find such anti-LGBTQ sentiment in your publication.

That’s not what I’ve come to expect from The Mission.

I hope and expect that you will either edit the article to remove the offensive content or that you will delete the article.

Thank you,
