“Gender Edit” Facebook Campaign Gets Retracted, Public Apology Issued

Late last week, I reported about Gender Edit, a campaign to create the largest “gender change” in history by using Facebook. After the campaign received a lot of criticism, it was shut down by its organizers and a public apology was issued.

Many readers had concerns against how the campaign used the word “sex” and “trivialized” the concept of being transgender. Another major concern was that the campaign was scheduled for the Transgender Day of Remembrance, a day to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of transphobia.

The campaign organizers told Equaldex that their ”intentions in creating this were entirely pure” and that they were working to revise the campaign. The campaign video was soon after taken down.

A few days later, the campaign was completely retracted and a video apology was published.

“I really do hope this helps. The stir this project has caused was never our intention. We screwed up, and we’re sorry.

Regardless of gay, straight, cis, or trans, we are all human, and mistakes are part of the human experience. Please reach out to me, I want to hear from you.”

Please share your thoughts about Michael’s apology video.

Political party-Me-Thank you for allowing me to tell you who I am. My story starts out a little unusual. I have perfect recall. Which is kinda like the perfect pitch is in music. I remember everything. Allowing me to never have to remember anything as it happens. Here goes You are the first to hear my story. I was born 8/1/53 @ 7:26 AM. My mother was a 19-year-old named Mary. I was her 7Th child. She turned 20 the next day. I am an Identical twin. 3 minutes after My brother Who disappeared be for I was born 3 minutes later. I was very healthy; he was a very sick baby (TTTS) needing a blood transfusion and incubator for 3 months. So we meet down the road a piece. What happened to me was also bad. I was circumcised against my knowing approval. Fast forward By the time I would finish 8th grade at 15 years old-10 years of schooling/2nd grade done 2 times, I would go to 21-grade schools some more than once. Live in the guardians' home 5 /6 times; adding up to over 2 years. I would live in over 100 houses. Meeting 10,000 other kids. My friend I am not a republican. But an Ex-Democrat. One that is for the most in number. I believe our rights start at birth -completely. That government is a privilege and not a right. We are the citizenry, and permanent. The government is temporary. Not our right of citizenship and our greater right as a human. Can you help us all?
