I want people to start taking this disgustingly transphobic article up with @GdnReadersEd

It's a violation of the Guardian News & Media Editorial code, part 1 (accuracy), part 12 (discrimination) and possibly part 2 (opportunity to reply)

Here are details for lodging a formal complaint with the Guardian's readers editor. I suggest doing it by the email which can be found here. Cite Guardian News & Media Editorial code, parts 1, 2 and 12.

theguardian.com/info/2014/sep/…
It's a violation of part 1 (accuracy) because despite talking about these supposedly all-powerful and influential trans activists, they have not cited any proof whatsoever of these trans activists influencing any decision.
The whole part 2 (right of reply) violation is... debatable, because they haven't actually named any trans organisations, activists or campaigners, so technically no accusation has been laid against anyone specific, but they certainly haven't consulted a single trans person.
The part 12 (discrimination) violation is obvious. This is an article that would never be printed about any other minority. The quote "highly politicised pro-trans groups" goes unquestioned, and the Guardian would never allow something like "highly politicised pro-black groups."
This article posts the opinion of one ex-governor about an "an inability to stand up to pressure from trans lobbies" without almost no questioning from the @guardian. He can't name who these "trans lobbies" are and the Guardian doesn't bother to check if they exist.
I need you all to be actually sending emails about this. It takes five minutes and will make sure the Guardian knows that people aren't okay with them acting as enablers of transphobia.
