This Blog Now Following EU Statist Guidelines And Lifting Postings On Transgendered People To 6%
I am dedicating myself to ensuring that I up my reporting on transgender people to at least 6% of my blog posts to help get to the EU guildelines.
We should all ensure that we follow statist guidelines for how we view and report on the world although I am unsure how much coverage to give to handbag fetishists as we must not leave anybody out so as to not hurt their feelings.
"Sport media coverage contributes to inequity by not reflecting social and cultural diversity. The MARS - Media against racism in sport programme– developed by The Council of Europe and the European Union recognises the following inequalities in representation in sports news stories:
• Gender under-representation -where women comprise only one quarter of all stories despite making up half the population.
• Migrants making up around 10% of the EU population but representing less than 5% of the main actors in the news in Europe.
• Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people representing roughly 6% of the population of the United Kingdom but accounting for less than 1% of the population seen on TV.
• 20% of the British population has an impairment or disability but less than 1% are represented on British TV.
