GLAAD calls on the Star-Ledger to use proper pronouns in reporting the murder of Eyricka Morgan
29 September 2013 | By James Withers
"'The reporter refused to change the story without confirmation of Eyricka's transgender identity from someone who knew her. GLAAD provided this information, but the newspaper has not corrected its coverage. Editors at the paper have not yet replied to repeated outreach by GLAAD.'" --gaystarnews.com
Newspaper under fire for not using the name of transgender crime victim
Seems to me this is nothing more than a display of ignorance, arrogance, and perhaps a bit of bigotry on the part of the reporter. Why does she feel she needs to have Ms. Morgan's gender identity confirmed by someone who personally knew her? Does she think GLAAD jumps up and decides to name someone trans just for kicks?
