The Sun’s transgender quiz criticised as “offensive” and unacceptable – Susan Daly

The publication of what The Sun newspaper calls “a fun quiz on gender” has been strongly criticised for reinforcing stereotypes about transgender people.

The quiz carries the headline ‘Tran or woman?’ and features 14 pictures of “ambiguous beauties”, as Sun writer Dulcie Pearce describes them. The quiz also features on pages 24-25 of today’s Irish Sun. One of the pictures is of the actor/comedian David Walliams dressed up as a female character from his TV show Come Fly With Me.
