Boots sorry over magazine article suggesting that transgender people are more likely to commit suicide if they are not addressed with their ‘preferred’ personal pronouns
Boots has apologised for publishing ‘misleading suggestions’ that people who identify as 트랜스 젠더 are more likely to try to take their own lives if not addressed using their ‘preferred’ personal pronouns.
In a recent edition of the retailer’s Health & Beauty magazine, LGBTQ+ podcaster James Barr wrote: ‘Not everyone identifies as “그” 또는 “여자”.
‘Some people…might prefer “친구와 가족에게 커밍아웃하고 사람들에게 자신의 성 정체성과 일치하는 대명사로 자신을 언급하도록 요청하는 것을 포함합니다.” pronouns.’

James Barr wrote that ‘trans and non-binary people were 50 per cent less likely to try to end their own life when those around them used their correct pronouns’ (파일 사진)
그는 덧붙였다: ‘A recent study revealed that trans and [성별] non-binary people were 50 per cent less likely to try to end their own life when those around them used their correct pronouns.’
Boots said: ‘We apologise for any misleading suggestions as a result of this article.’
Stephanie Davies-Arai, from the monitoring group Transgender Trend, 말했다: ‘Lobby organisations have pushed the message…that a child who is not affirmed as the opposite sex is more likely to attempt suicide, on the basis of no evidence.’
The Trevor Project in the US, which carried out the survey, stood by its findings.
