Trans Deaths, White Privilege – The New York Times

This really made me stop and realize just how fortunate I’ve been.

 

Trans Deaths, White Privilege – The New York Times:

“Jennifer Finney Boylan, a professor of English at Barnard College, is the author of ‘Stuck in the Middle With You: Parenthood in Three Genders’ and a contributing opinion writer.”

    Thank you for another post that should not have to happen.

    I have been on message boards the past several months – about the time of the unfolding Jenner story – reading comments by readers – actual comments calling for the murder of transsexuals – using very gruesome details.

    I suppose I am amazed that editorial boards of otherwise legitimate news web-sites allowed such violent comments to boards calling for and inciting murder. Then again, maybe enough sane people reading those comments will do something. Naw, they can’t be bothered.

    Posting messages asking people to stop the violence and bullying does not work, yet I lack the answers as many of us do. I can only hope that more news stories will eventually bring out enough people to actually do something.

    Jenny’s style of her story reminded me of the old Simon and Garfunkel track ‘Silent Night’.
