Tomorrow (Tuesday 2 November 2010)* at least one tabloid newspaper will use at least one of the phrases on Trans Media Watch's "pointlessly offensive" list while reporting on the case of Nina Kanagasingham, the trans woman who has been remanded in custody (in an all-male prison) having been charged with the the murder of another trans woman, Sonia Burgess.
Just to remind you all, here's that list of "derogatory, inappropriate or offensive terminology" to avoid:
- Sex Change
- She Male
- Gender Bender
- Sex Swap
- Any ‘comedy’ reference to genitalia
*Note that this also applies to Wednesday in the cases of the Express and Star, who are generally day late with the news because they copy it out of the previous day's other papers.
