Homicides of transgender women in US reach alarming high
For a few transgender Americans, this has been a year of glamour and fame. For many others, 2015 has been fraught with danger, violence and mourning.
While Caitlyn Jenner made the cover of Vanity Fair and Laverne Cox prospered as a popular actress, other transgender women have become homicide victims at an alarming rate. By the count of the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs, there have been 22 killings so far this year of transgender or gender-nonconforming people — including 19 black or Latina transgender women.
Yet many Americans are uncomfortable with transgender people, Jindasurat said. He cited the recent referendum in Houston, where opponents of a nondiscrimination ordinance prevailed by stoking fears about transgender people’s access to public restrooms.
World War T logic: NAM trannies are being murdered at an “alarming rate” (19 so far this year, in contrast, ten to forty small children per year drown in relatively large buckets), and all those beer swilling pickup truck driving Confederate flag waving Baptist rednecks in Houston that voted against trannies in the wrong restrooms are to blame, even though beer swilling pickup truck driving Confederate flag waving Baptist rednecks were not actually the ones whose votes defeated that measure. That’s how we know that official LGBTQetc are trying to distract us from the truth. And the truth of the matter in these cases are that black men get with a black woman somehow (prostitution, hookup, etc.), get “her” into bed and discover that she is actually he. Out comes the gat or knife or chokehold.
