WND Still Disparaging Transgenders With (Stolen) Hairy-Guy-In-Heels Pic
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A while back, we documented how WorldNetDaily is unusually fond of illustrating stories about transgender issues -- and disparaging transgenders -- with a photo it stole from the Associated Press of the hairy legs of a man wearing a dress and heels (taken from a 2012 "hairy legs on heels" race in Madrid, so the person in the photo is not even transgender, just a guy in heels).

Well, WND and its stolen photo have struck again, this time on a Sept. 10 transgender-related article by Bob Unruh:

The photo lacks a credit, and WND is not a member of the AP, so WND has violated copyright law once again by using it. It's racking up quite a fee it must eventually pay the AP for repeated unauthorized use of its photo.

The sad thing is, that photo likely illustrates what WND thinks transgenders are.
