News Alert! Violence Against Transgendered Individuals Actually Mentioned in the News

June 6, 2012

This Daily Beast article is one of the better pieces I have seen recently in relatively mainstream media on the topic of excessive rates of violence experienced by members in the transgendered community.  I could do without the Ru Paul comment, but overall I am happy to see someone acknowledge that fitting in is not always a person’s end goal, and not fitting in is absolutely a personal choice and not a reasonable defense for violence.

My busy week precludes me from adding much more than these two cents to this topic, but the article is worth a read.  Hopefully more media outlets will follow this lead.
