Overall, this report is really well done. However, if you view the story on WSET's Web site, you'll notice that the headline is worded problematically. The word "transgender" is an adjective; it is incorrect - and can be considered demeaning - to use it as a noun. For more information on how to report transgender-related news stories in a fair, accurate and inclusive manner, please check out pages 8-11 of GLAAD's Media Reference Guide. We have reached out to WSET-13 reporter Melinda Zosh and anticipate that the headline will be revised on the station's Web site shortly.
