"The real offense here was in the producer's decision to add insult to injury by turning a contestant's gender expression into the butt of a joke"…"We've spoken with Fox and have entered into what we hope will be a productive, ongoing conversation about the show's representation and discussion of sexual orientation and gender expression."-- After Simon Cowell told a male contestant to "wear a dress" and Randy Jackson asked another, "are you a girl?"
