Article on Rosey’s café assigned wrong gender
I wanted to let you know that you misgendered Jamie Gerber in the piece you wrote about Rosey’s in Pine Plains.
Jamie uses they/them pronouns and you used she/her to describe them.
The Millerton News should endeavor to represent trans and gender nonconforming people as they identify. All you need to do is ask.
Editor’s Note: The Millerton News would like to apologize to Jamie Gerber and anyone who was offended by the incorrect usage of she/her in former reporter Kaitlin Lyle’s July 21 article on Rosey’s cafe in Pine Plains. We deeply regret the error and will strive to do better when reporting on all genders to represent a more inclusive society.
