Current event.

Today is the International Day of Rememberance for the 27 trans people murdered in the US, and 271 murdered around the world due to hate and intolerance.

There is no acceptable reason for this. It is unacceptable of a society where everyone is supposed to be equal.

How can you remember transgender anything? Are you remembering who used to be male or female or what they are now?

Do we remember Randy or Randi or; Randi or Randy?

Who remembers the medical bills and who paid for them?

I've been personally acquainted with only one individual who feels himself "trapped in the wrong body", and he's just a wannabee, but he's a doozy:

What Should We Do About "Justin"?

And if his behavior is typical, I can't work up much sympathy for overgrown children ruled by hormones and emotions, and seek to have the taxpayers foot the bill for their disconnect with reality.

And while I have plenty of issues with not-so-impartial organizations such as Maryknoll and Doctors Without Borders -- I have no doubt that they have paid a much stiffer price for their beliefs and convictions.

The OP and his/her playmates have some growing up to do.

Well I guess most of you will be happy when trans people are murdered or kill themselves because of hate and intolerance. That is pretty sad.
