The tabloid photo shopped Jenner’s head onto the body of cisgender woman’s body according to the Washington Post.
Outing anyone as transgender is wrong. But it’s especially offensive when it’s done by a trashy tabloid and is based on lies, assumptions and gossip. Of all things In Touch ties to excuse their potentially fatal Faux pas with an old family guy episode.

I make it a point not to write about anyone remotely connected with the Kardashians since Khloe Kardashian dropped the T and the H word on a Dallas radio station, but this is just plain wrong.
Source (UPI) — InTouch Weekly landed in hot water this week after publishing a doctored photo of Olympian Bruce Jenner wearing makeup with the headline “My Life as a Woman” on its cover.
The cover story claims to offer details on Jenner’s coming-out story, which the magazine said would be published in an upcoming issue of the LGBT news publication, The Advocate.
“I’m astounded that Bonnie Fuller’s Hollywood Life would claim to have ‘all the details’ on Bruce Jenner’s ‘big magazine plans’ because their story is a total fabrication — like InTouch’s distressing Photoshopped cover,” said Matthew Breen, editor in chief of The Advocate. “Neither publication has any insider source with knowledge of The Advocate’s planned coverage.”
