La FELGTB ha interpuesto una reclamación contra Intereconomía por la transfobia contra Carla Antonelli
La Federación Estatal de Lesbianas, Gays, Transexuales y Bisexuales, FELGTB, quiere mostrar su condena a las palabras de Xavier Horcajo que en su programa de Intereconomía Televisión ha querido degradar a Carla Antonelli y a las personas transexuales en general dudando de su género, su nombre y su realidad. Al referirse a la candidata a la Asamblea de Madrid el presentador no la trató como la mujer que es y tuvo a bien reírse de su condición como transexual. La FELGTB entiende que se trata de una agresión transfóbica contraria a la ley y ha interpuesto una reclamación ante el Consejo Audiovisual de Andalucía que ya elevara la queja particular por la que se multó la homofobia de Intereconomía.

Dr. Phil Should Stop Dispensing Thirty Year Old Discredited Advice- NOW
It is time that Dr. Phil- who has no licence to practice therapy any more- be shut down. The homophobic, transphobic showman has decided to do damage to hundreds of thousands of children because of his intolerance and his quackery. Dr. Phil is, basically, nothing more than a snake oil salesman who peddles phony baloney cures to what ails people in order to throw them up on the little screen for people to watch and feel glad about how their lives are so much better off than those poor schmucks who have to go on his shows.
