“This image was specifically chosen to help communicate with people with learning disabilities.”Or the 'transgender community'?
Save our Libraries Essex campaigner Liz Miles, from Wivenhoe, complained to the council. She said: “The clip art image is discriminatory and deeply offensive.
“It is a shockingly negative and inaccurate image, showing a person who appears to be miserable and confused, but on closer inspection is a man removing a wig.”There's only one way to find out, isn't there? Oh, wait!
“We are sorry for any offence caused. We listened to feedback and the image is being removed.”/golfclap
