just reading an article about civil rights for transgender people in america
'In a recent study of transgender students, nearly half said they'd been "punched, kicked, or injured with a weapon" at least once in the past year. On average, a transgender person is murdered because of their identity every month, according to the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund. In 2008, for instance, Angie Zapata, an 18-year-old Colorado woman, was bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher when her attacker--- a man she met through a social-networking site--- realized that she was born male.' i've overheard a guy with that attitude before, that he'd hit a trans-woman who he thought was a cis-woman during a sexual encounter. transgender people are not obligated to reveal their identity to cis-people.
i could cry and cry for the oppression girls and women, especially trans-girls/trans-women face. fuck anyone who says that feminism is not a relevant movement. anti-feminists are such a waste of oxygen.
oh my god ;_; i hate humanity
