Warning: trigger alert.
I have not watched the video attached to this story, but I have read the account. In it, we find the victim mis-gendered, and then blamed for her own death. The murderer presents HIMSELF AS THE VICTIM!!!
Think about it…isolate it out in your mind: This huge strong man gives a transwoman a ride home, claims he panics because she made a pass at him (but he is thinking that she was a man and gay…so I guess that makes it justifiable to take a human being’s life?)…and so the only thing, really, to balance the scales of having an unwanted pass made at him, was to murder her, and then put her body in a fucking dumpster!!!!!
And then turn himself in while saying he wants to do the right thing.
Are you kidding me? To my female readers…do you kill people when they make an unwanted pass at you? If you did, there would be no men left on the earth!
I am asking you, Constance (and this means YOU…) to vocally and openly expose this form of victim blaming anytime you encounter it!
It is never okay to kill someone. Period.
The worst part for me? What these animals do with their victims’ bodies, which shows that it is never enough to just kill them…they must be dehumanized and demeaned to the ultimate, reduced to garbage, or fire fodder.
This is my world…I could be killed at any moment, should some animal decide I have no right to life merely because of how I was born!
In sorrow and tears,with broken heart…
