BLP comment[edit]

As she has made TV appearances during which she has publicized the notable activities described in the article, I do not consider that the articles is in any way a violation of BLP. I assume she would be glad of the publicity, and perhaps she will provide at GFDL picture. DGG 02:23, 1 March 2007 (UTC)


In compliance with wikipedia:Manual of Style; I have changed all references to gender to female. See: "Any person whose gender might be questioned should be referred to using the gendered nouns, pronouns, and possessive adjectives that reflect that person's latest expressed gender self-identification. This applies when referring to any phase of that person's life. Nevertheless, avoid confusing or seemingly logically impossible text that could result from pronoun usage (for example: She fathered her first child)." (talk) 23:22, 28 June 2010 (UTC)


April ashley was/is not a musician; therefore, I have removed the tag.


Re "A homosexual roommate raped her, and was severely injured as a result of the sexual assault" - this implies that the rommate was injured not her, is that correct? It seems unclear. Gymnophoria (talk) 13:10, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Questionable sources[edit]

After some thought, I've tagged this article as having questionable sources. Much of what has been said does not, to someone like myself with some knowledge in this area, ring true. Looking at the references, they are mostly things April has said about herself, which falls foul of guidelines on sources writing about themselves. At this point, removing those sources and then removing the resultant uncited material, as per the BLP guidelines, would destroy the article, so I'm not inclined to do that unless no further sources can be found. ~Excesses~ (talk) 19:30, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Dishonourable Discharge[edit]

I doubt if Ashley was given a dishonourable discharge, as the Merchant Navy was not a military organization. What she may well have received was an annotation in her discharge book reading DR for Decline to Deport. Everybody got to be somewhere! (talk) 16:51, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
