As expected, they responded with a dismissive stock reply to everyone. So the next step is to escalate the complaint: go through the BBC's complaints process again, and mark that "I'm not happy with a response to a previous complaint". You can also escalate it to Ofcom. The process is written up here: twitter.com/ClagzMccla/status/

to escalate it to Ofcom, you first have to go through all the BBC's complaint escalation process ofcomforms.secure.force.com/fo

the complaints process is designed to be demoralising. wow! it's working! i'm feeling demoralised! i'm still doing it tho!

u have 2 make ur second complaint half the length of the 1st 😰

BBC transphobia article 

correction: your second complaint can also be 2000 characters. i'm gonna add some extra words to mine.

annoyed that i don't have enough remaining characters to patronisingly quote the BBC's own guidance on polls back at them
("if [surveys] are of no statistical value and appear to have been promoted only to generate attention for a particular cause or publication, we should exercise real scepticism and consider not using them at all, especially when they are concerned with serious or controversial issues.")

ok, fucking submitted that complaint. if u do it, you need the case number of your previous one (this is in the email you get back from the BBC, including in their inadequate response email).

"The BBC wants you to give up on this. Do not.

Escalate your complaint. Make it again and say why you are not happy with their response.

Keep escalating until it reaches the OfCom stage.

The BBC counts on you giving up and not persisting with your complaints, so that as few complaints as possible get passed up to OfCom.

You have to keep going with it if you want to escalate it."

@alex eh... the bbc has all the power and no matter how well you complain you're mostly just wasting spoons that if you could spend them doing literally anything else towards liberation would be more worthwhile. e.g. writing "a trans person pissed here" in a public bathroom. I am not saying don't complain if you have nothing else to do, but basically anything else towards trans liberation is more helpful.

@bound yeah you're right, and i appreciate the reality check. writing from home is the only action available to me tbh (and it's what i'm good at). i hope that i can at least add to the collective weight of complaints to force a retraction (through ofcom, i know the bbc won't do anything in-house).

@alex Got to do some anger management first, in my case

@ghost_bird Solidarity. Even the complaints process alone is dispiriting.

@alex I got as far as the Executive Complaints Board last time, but my ad blockers fucked up the form and I couldn’t try again because the URL they give you is one time only

@ghost_bird ah shit, i'll bear that in mind when i send mine in.
