Appalling Ignorance

Another Trans-woman was murdered, LaTeisha Green, and now her trial is starting. Her family called for the passage of federal hate crimes protection for transgender people. This was reported on Syracuse.com. The comments on the story are the usual depressing mixture of ignorance, white male privilege and transphobia. It’s sad and depressing that her family now has to try and educate the public yet again to the reality of our lives. It’s frustrating that yet again we seem to be running into a wall of willful ignorance.

My deepest sympathy to her family, may justice be done.
