A reader wrote to me complaining about some comments made by a Montreal radio personality, Ted Bird, on Hudson radio station Jewel 106.7 FM.
The reader said this:
Radio personality Ted Bird made some rather transphobic comments this morning …. He impersonated Caitlyn Jenner and then went on to call her weekend in New York for Pride (where she attended several trans events) a ‘real sausage fest’. This soundbite has been replayed by the station all day and I am absolutely horrified that this is acceptable.
What do you think of Ted’s comments: are they transphobic, or just plain dumb?
