Reminder: It’s “Transgender,’ Not ‘Transgendered’

As we report about the administration’s letter to schools, the HB2 law in North Carolina and related stories, here’s a reminder: Someone is “transgender,” not “transgendered.” And it’s “transgender people,” not “transgendered people.”

Vox has written about the difference between “transgender” and “transgendered” here: http://www.vox.com/2015/2/18/8055691/transgender-transgendered-tnr

The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association has helpful language resources here: http://www.nlgja.org/
