Have you removed nua from Illumination? And what can we do about the editor who approved the article? Have they been removed as well? More to the point, what should be done about Dr Mehmet Yildiz who posted in defense of the author just now and repeated the vile canard that being LGBTQ is a “preference?” I didn’t know bigoted Neanderthals like him still existed.

We need strong, concerted action here. Mehmet needs to be shouted down as a twisted bigot whose first instinct and first action was to defend homophobia rather than take action against a horrifying writer and an evil article.
