Help in correcting an offensive listing error

Please can someone let me know why I have been declined three times in correcting an offensive listing error - In an interview on Good Morning Britain in 2017, Juno Dawson was a guest speaker regarding transgender issues - she is a trans women and yet the listing for her is given as 'himself' instead of 'herself' - when submitting the requests to make the change I included links to Juno's website (she is a published author) as well as links to a youtube extract from the actual TV interview, both of which clearly confirm she is female and yet the request to correct this error has still been declined. Misgendering is highly offensive, and even though the original listing may well have been unintentional, to refuse to correct this error when it clearly needs to be changed is really concerning. Please can someone help to correct this. Thanks

Thanks for bring this to our attention Paul, I've edited the incorrect gender on the name page now and amended the credit accordingly.

Thanks,

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled correct an incorrect listing.

Please can an IMDB staff member help - I tried to amend an incorrect listing but so far with no joy as my requests have been declined, even though I provided links to prove the listing is incorrect - please can someone help.

on the following IMDB page for Juno Dawson, a trangender woman, there is an incorrect listing for the following 2017 listing for Good Morning Britain - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8981257/

Juno is clearly female, as stated in another IMDB listing, but for this entry she is described as 'himself' instead of 'herself' - this is clearly wrong, and for anyone transgender, this is highly offensive so really should be changed. I have communicated with Juno so she is now aware and would like this changed. 

The following is proof that she is female and includes the Good Morning Britain interview where she hereself during the interview confirms that she should be referred to as female:

Please can this be checked and amended 

Many thanks
