NBC misgenders Chelsea Manning


NBC reporter Ken Dilanian has come under fire for misgendering US intelligence leaker Chelsea Manning on MSNBC’s Live with Hallie Jackson and MSNBC’s Live with Stephanie Ruhle, as he not only accused Manning of being the right hand of the WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange, but also repeatedly addressed her with ‘he\him’ pronouns, which has already been treated as a public invalidation of the transgender identity of Ms Manning and of the whole trans community in general as there are numerous researches that have proven that incorrect pronouns heavily affect transgender people. Media Matters has publicly condemned Dilanian for misgendering Manning in the report, and said: “Misgendering trans people is a tactic used by right-wing media and extreme anti-LGBTQ groups to invalidate trans identities.”
