Analysis / Bias
In review, Women are Human primarily publishes news stories that negatively portray transgender men who identify as female. Most stories focus on crimes committed such as this Prominent Transgender-Identifying Figure Arrested for Terroristic Threats Against Female Bar Manager. This story is properly sourced to local Pittsburgh media. The website also frequently opposes political correctness in identifying transgendered persons such as this To Avoid Being “Hurtful” to Trans Community, Police Fail to Provide Description of Wanted Sexual Assailant. This story is also properly sourced.
When not reporting crimes and perceived atrocities by Transgender men they provide opinion articles that utilize highly charged emotional language such as this Dystopian Toronto: Trans Activist Mob Fights to Crush Women’s Voices. Politically, Women are Human closely align with the right based on advocating for limited rights for Transgender persons. In general, Women are Human properly source information and report factually. However, the story selection and consistent anti-transgender advocacy render them Questionable as the perspective is 100% one-sided which amounts to propaganda.
