Seventeen Magazine Calls Transgendered Teen a LIAR!?

Crossposted to EvilSlutopia.com

Apparently the November issue of Seventeen magazine has a transphobic article in it so people have started a letter campaign about it. We're way too old to be reading Seventeen magazine so we didn't notice the original article and the campaign has already been going on for a few weeks... but think this issue is important enough to be passed on. 

Apparently the November issue featured a story entitled "My BOYFRIEND turned out to be a GIRL!"

(You can check out the full article at the Facebook event page here.)

From the original call-to-arms on Facebook:

Rather than use this opportunity to educate readers about transgender issues, it never once even uses any terminology (well, unless you consider the slur "he-she") but instead furthers the common transphobic assumption that someone who's gender does not match their sex assigned at birth is a deceptive liar and even compares them to perverts, drug addicts, and older dads trying to get someone young w/o disclosing their parental/age status.
