TVC’s And NARTH’s Use Of The Derogatory Term ‘Shemale’

Daniel Gonzales

May 23rd, 2007

shemale1.jpgDaniel talks with Autumn (a trans contributor at Ex-Gay Watch) about the TVC’s and NARTH’s use of the derogatory term “shemale.” Most recently the TVC used the term in a political cartoon attacking the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, currently in Congress. Autumn notes the term is used almost exclusively in either pornography or by anti-gay/trans activists.
