Odd reporting by @TransMediaWatch ....Where were the attacks from?


Editor: "In this case we can see two groups of trans readers with directly opposing views that are deeply rooted in their own experience and perspectives."
"In some cases, what made the story speak to some is also what alienated others. Neither perspective is wrong, but they appear to be incompatible with one another on some level. "
"Knowing this was a potentially controversial story, we shld have employed broader range of sensitivity readers. Not that ours failed, but rather that they only represented a slice of the community & additional perspectives cld hv helped inform us of a potential conflict. "
"It may not have “fixed” things but it would have provided opportunities to better prepare ourselves and our readers for what lay ahead. "

<oh good grief. Readers should be "prepared" that they may not agree with or like everything they read>
"I removed the story from the current issue of Clarkesworld ...... This is not censorship. The author needed this to be done for her own personal safety and health."

<Yes this is censorship. The whole cycle is censorship. The sensitivity readers, the outrage, the capitulation>
