Recently, the machine that decides on all matters of great pith and moment got all huffy over a piece I wrote about gender definitions. What got its diodes all heated up was a link to a website called Gender Spectrum, which is a seemingly responsible outfit that offers advice to people who are questioning their gender. I found the group useful in my research and added a link in my sources. This is among the many things I don't understand.
You have far too many links in your sources area. Name the sources but don't "link" them and you'll probably be OK.
That's a shame. I like to give credit to all the sources I use in writing a piece. It gives people a chance to easily access more information if they want to. The other issue is I have no credibility as an expert on gender, or most other subjects, but I'm an old school journalist who knows how to research information, distill it, and cobble it together in a readable form. It's important to credit all sources.
