Why, Guardian? Why, Observer? Why?

Over the last week, the Guardian and Observer have managed to publish a series of articles in their print editions which have been deeply insulting and upsetting to transgender individuals, including Cheryl Morgan, whose blog I follow and who therefore brought the issue to my attention, as I haven't been reading the paper much over that time period, being in London studying for my dissertation instead.  Some of the articles published have been so shocking, offensive and ugly that I felt more than moved to write a letter to the Readers' Editors of each paper, demanding that apologies be printed and a right of reply given; and that in future such content not be printed.  Whether this will happen or not I can only speculate, but I urge you to read my letter, follow the links at least to the Guardian and Observer articles from the last week, and please, make your feelings known to these supposedly socially responsible and tolerant newspapers.
