Trans Girl Joins Track Team

Okay so I was on Twitter, earlier and I saw this ridiculous headline. The headline reads “Female Track Team Welcomes Boy Who Thinks He’s A Girl Onto Team. He’s Really Fast.” Reading that, gave me a headache. The proper title to such a thing should be, “Female Track Team Welcomes Trans(gender) Girl Onto team. She’s Really Fast.” This whole article misgenders her, and just gives off a really transphobic vibe. The last line of the article is “The young boy hopes to inspire other trans folk.” The author acknowledges that she’s trans, so why can’t the authorΒ use the right pronouns? It’s just very disrespectful.
