Lost in Translation

SUB EDITOR

Why is it that when this magazine runs an article about the trans community there are always dozens of unpleasant and infantile communications in the days that follow? The magazine is used to receiving abuse from hunt saboteurs and members of the public who disagree with articles we publish. But why is the torrent of abuse from trans people by far the worst kind that we receive?

The following are some examples. Really, not safe for work so look away now if you don’t want to read them…

You have no idea what it feels like to be a woman in a man’s body. So you Gary McGhee Nanny McGhee you should keep eating shit. If you knew how people like me feel then you would not treat us like dogs. You would want us to peg you up the arse.

I would like to make a complaint to the editor for allowing this filth in your magazine. What right do you have to fuck with the trans community> You are sick. You all want to sleep with trans. If not why are u so obsessed with us? You are shit. Got That? You are shit.
Why do you not have a trans writer in your writers’ section?

I see your article Descent to the Bottom hhaha is top of most read. Is that because you are trans curious? What makes you think that we are a group of people who give a shit. Die in your own spit and bile you fucking queers.

Your children will become trans. Your mother is trans. Did you know that we dominate the queerosphere now and your sort are dinosaurs McGhee.

There are plenty more comments and emails which are down-the-police-station jobs.

We will continue to publish articles which tell the truth and discuss salient points. Gary McGhee’s article was fair and balanced. He is entitled to his opinion. We do have a trans writer who has contributed some excellent articles over the years. The rest of the accusations are as pointless as their authors / authoresses.

Do grow up!
