US Magazine Faced Heavy Criticism After Prominently Featuring a Trans Woman

A major US magazine in October 2017 faced heavy criticism after announcing it would prominently feature a trans woman in its next issue. The criticism included comments by a cis woman who had also been featured in the magazine. The magazine itself responded on social media with examples of the current criticism paired with examples of letters they received in 1965 after they featured a black woman. The criticism, which heavily rejects trans women as women, is transphobic and marginalizes trans people as not worthy of inclusion where cis people are.
