a journalist at The Independent got paid to write “heckin cute and valid” :marseyxd: Breaking: News org actually gets the r/TransParentTransKid story right

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/reddit-conservatives-post-trans-child-fake-b2060803.html

and I get another shoutout :marseylove:

Reuters responded to my request for correction but isn't keen on fixing the story, so I might write a whingepost about them later. But hey, The Independent got things right!

Tbh she did do a ton of surprisingly accurate research and this is the first bit of media exposure we’ve had where it isn’t some r-slurred failson screeching about how it’s :quote:alt-right trolls:quote:. She did her homework, verified everything she wrote, and gave a refreshingly fair account of events without drowning every word in the usual fourth estate propagandaspeak.

It’s a good writeup. This is the first journ*list I haven’t hated in years. rDrama stands with The Independent.

Reuters is a Ru***an disinformation op. If you are reading this, you are reading their propaganda. Transparenttranskid was full of lived experiences by people on this very site and was shuttered by Reddit administration due to the blatant, mask-off transmisia that site is famous for. The only people punished by this action were the millions of trans kids in communities worldwide, their parents no longer having a safe space to discuss treatment options.
