Gender nothing to do with it

Re: the news story 'Jailed for touching child'

This is shameful reporting and should have been caught before publication.

The fact the woman being charged is transgender has absolutely nothing to do with this story. This is blatantly biased and possibly transphobic reporting.

Yes, the person changed their name. Simply saying "Riley Carlson, formally Jeremy Carlson" would have been sufficient. Instead, this reporter has 'outed' this woman.

Yes, she has been found guilty of a heinous crime, but her sentence has been decided. Putting her in danger once she's back out in public is tantamount to vigilante justice.
