Transphobia at Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters, which is apparently some kind of clothing company, stocked a “greeting card” containing a grossly transphobic rhyme.

To quote Natalie Reed:

Yet another instance of the “trap”/”deceiver” trope being perpetuated (which gets a whole lot of us killed, as it happens).

And I’m tired. I’m tired of having to walk around in a world constantly barraging me with the message that I’m a joke, a freak, an abomination, a deception and lie, delusional, a sinner, an acceptable target.

The item is now, apparently, “out of stock”. Or they’ve pulled it, but don’t have the wherewithal to actually admit it.

TRiG.
