What about the editor who approved nua’s piece? Have you discovered who they are and removed them? If not, why not?

What about Dr Mehmet Yildiz? Have you publicly chastised them for their utterly wrong assertion that being LGBTQ is a “preference?” You know it isn’t as well as I know. When will you publicly correct them?

Has anyone in an official Illumination capacity got with Mehmet and scolded him for his ignorant homophobic bigotry?

I’m horrified that Dr Mehmet Yildiz’s homophobia is allowed to stand unchallenged on Medium. I’m waiting for good and decent people to shout him down. Will you be the first, Chris? What about you, Linda Caroll?

These are serious questions that demand serious answers. Every LGBTQ person on Medium deserves immediate, thoughtful, informative responses. Not aphorisms. Facts. Right here, right now, no delay.
