And as you probably guessed, the comment threads about the Sal attack are overflowing with anti-trans ignorance.
Unfortunately it seems that once again the trans hate is flowing for the holidays along with the egg nog, and we're only two days into the month of December.
Yes peeps, it's going to get better, but because of the increased visibility, we're also going to get increased hatred from the ignorati and those folks insecure in their own gender identities and sexual orientations. The fact we trans folks are owning our power terrifies them, and they want to stamp it out.
But we must stand taller, strut proudly, and declare in a loud and unshakable voice, "I am a trans woman (or trans man) and I will not allow you to erase my humanity during this holiday season."
January 2016 will be here before we know it.
