I need to unplug for a few days. In the past hour, I found on my news feed:
- Another trans woman murdered; misgendered by police.
- A tireless critic of police brutality and her five year-old child shot by police; said police wiping the data on her phone which probably caught the whole event on camera.
- A youtuber coming out as trans with dozens of media outlets turning her into a punching bag.
- A trans woman who robbed a bank and turned herself in, because no homeless shelter would take her and she was less likely to be beaten in prison than on the streets.
- A trans woman who shared a story of how she was held pending charges in a men’s prison. She overheard the officers referring to her as a freak and that they expected the other prisoners to assault her as they denied her requests for solitary confinement.
I’m out. Unplugging for a few days. Fuck this shit.
