Once again, the CBC has failed utterly to adhere to the Associated Press guidelines which are VERY clear, that ALL stories regarding trans individuals REGARDLESS OF AGE, are to be referred to in the gender they present and CHOOSE to be portrayed as. In short, the opposite of what they did.Someone named CMDR Tomalek seconds that over-heated emotion:
When I was on the CBC years ago & the story referred to me in the wrong gender, deliberately misgendering me and without ANY request, permission or even mention of doing so, I raised a stink.
It's too bad the people at the CBC have such a god damn short memory.
I STRONGLY recommend you folks at the CBC review your policies AGAIN, and stick with what you AGREED TO, back nearly a decade ago when I was interviewed in Edmonton & raised a stink over the bullshit then!
SMARTEN UP. You have NO legitimate excuse what so ever for this violation!
Do I detect a "human rights" complaint or two in the offing?
CBC: I expected so much better than this from you. The producers of this piece should be fired for their decision to refer to these kids by their biological sex! If this trash airs again, the disclaimer at the start should be changed to an apology!
