Violence Against Transgender People and People of Color is Disproportionately High, LGBTQH Murder Rate Peaks
The murder rate of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and HIV-affected (LGBTQH) is at its highest, according to a recently released 2011 report from the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP). The report also shows that transgender women, people of color, and youth and young adults are at a disproportionately high risk of being victims of what the NCAVP terms hate violence.
Violence is perpetrated overwhelming BY MALES.
Guess who is overwhelmingly the perpetrator of rape?
Hint: Not Females.
Trust Cathy Brennan to try to implicate trans* women (or as she calls us, MALES) in violence on a post that makes reference to the murder of trans* women.
By drawing the line for behavioral differences at perceived biological sex rather than gender (but she doesn’t believe that biology is destiny, that’s silly) she classifies trans* women with our own murderers and rapists, and finds grounds to deny us legal protection and access to resources.
“Name the problem: MALE VIOLENCE!” Cathy Brennan says, as she kicks the rape survivor back into the hands of her rapists.
