Sue And Newark Star-Ledger Still Being Obstinate About Not Correcting Her Misgendering Article

Sue Epstein/The Star-LedgerBeen over a week now and Sue Epstein, the reporter stenographer at the Newark Star-Ledger still hasn't corrected the misgendering story about Eyricka Morgan that has caused her to get called out by the local and national trans community, moi, Janet Mock , our allies and GLAAD for failing to do so

And no Newark Star-Ledger, posting a link to a subsequent story about Eyricka, while a step in the right direction because it has the correct pronouns, does not absolve you from doing what the trans community has asked you to do. 

We're still waiting on you to follow the AP Stylebook guidelines and correct the story we find and have already told you was disrespectful.

Looks like I'm going to have to show you peeps how you do it.


New Brunswick man charged with stabbing transgender woman to death in city boarding house.

A New Brunswick man is charged with fatally stabbing a transgender woman in the city boarding house where they both lived.
NEW BRUNSWICK — A New Brunswick man was arrested today and charged with fatally stabbing a transgender woman at the boarding house where they both lived.

Devonte Scott, 21, was charged with murder, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose in the death Tuesday of Eyricka Morgan, Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey said.

Carey said the investigation began when police were called to the boarding home on Baldwin Street in New Brunswick at 8:17 p.m. Tuesday.

He said officers arrived to find the victim injured. Morgan was rushed to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in the city, where she was pronounced dead at 9 p.m.

Carey said an investigation by Detective Kenneth Abode of the New Brunswick Police Department and county Investigator Jose Rodriguez determined that Morgan was stabbed. The results of an autopsy by the county medical examiner’s office were not immediately available, he said.

Police arrested Scott at 9:45 a.m. today at an undisclosed location, the prosecutor said. He was taken to the Middlesex County jail, where he is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.

Carey said the investigation is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Abode at (732)-745-5200 or Rodriguez at (732) 745-3300.


See how easy that was? 

I'll bet if this were a story that disrespected a deceased person in the Jewish or any other cis communities in the area it wouldn't be sitting on your website uncorrected for over a week.

But in your minds, that unprofessional journalistic behavior is okay for a dead Black transwoman.
