My complaint to Ofcom re: ‘that’ BBC article

I am writing to complain about the article originally headlined; "We are being pressured into sex by some trans women". In this letter I intend to set out what my issues with the piece were and how the 'solutions' offered by the BBC's ECU have not at all addressed that problem. The outcome I am searching for is a full retraction and apology for the piece. In my opinion this article does not mean journalistic standards and serves only to elevate gossip of known anti-trans agitators to a position it simply does not belong.

With the caption "the rainbrow pride flag is OK as it is. The trans pride flag is OK as it is. No extra symbols needed."
