Indeed, a lot of people had been saying this all along. So you’ve now got incontrovertible evidence that the trans and gender non-conforming people who critiqued your article were right — and that not listening to them resulted in you spreading misinformation. So, a few questions:
- As well as this (relatively-low-visibility) post, will you also be using your higher-profile channels to correct the misinformation?
- Will you be going back to your past articles that cited this study and updating them?
- Going forward, what are the other areas where you haven’t been listening to trans and gender non-conforming people — and how will you start incorporating their feedback earlier to avoid continuing to publish misinformation that harms people?
