Gwen Saoirse, I’m confident that Chad Grills, Stephanie Postles, and Lacey Peace must have been unaware that this egregious piece of bigotry appeared in The Mission. I have equal confidence that they will do something about it very shortly.

National Center for Transgender Equality, after all, is a regular and respected contributor to Medium. And also, while many of us have complained to Medium Staff and to Your Friends @ Medium, it does take a certain amount of time for complaints to be processed, I’m sure.

I’m equally sure that no sustained campaign of vigorous protest will become necessary. I have faith that The Mission is going to do the right thing.


P.S. Eric Griggs, you should read Gwen’s comment here.
