A subtle juxtaposition
Four stories that came across my Google Reader main feed on the same day:
- Transphobic Ad Asks Viewers To “Spot The Stallions From The Mares”
- HRC’s Joe Solmonese (AKA that asshole who kicked trans* people out of ENDA a week after he promised trans activists he wouldn’t) Named National Co-Chair for Obama Campaign
- 22-year-old transgender woman beaten, placed in critical condition in Italy
- New Survey Reveals that 41% of Transgender People Attempted Suicide
Yep, absolutely no connection between a culture that accepts and actively supports transphobia and violence (physical and emotional) constantly directed against trans* people.
