Benson's Transphobia[edit]

Is there any consensus on how to address Benson's transphobia? Our article could criticize Benson and her transphobia. Or it could insist that Benson is not a transphobe. Or it could defend transphobia, saying that Benson is A-Ok, deleting all contributions critical of her as "not helpful." Or it could take another approach.

What should we do? Are Benson's unequivocal positions on trans people acceptable to us? Let's not delete contributions, but confront uncomfortable issues head on.
