Let The Great Right Wing Freakout About Transgender People Going To The Bathroom Begin
Today seems to have been designated as the day when right wing zealots nationwide freak out about where transgender people go to the bathroom.
Recognizing that, let’s give the discussion something that it desperately needs.
Dear right wingers who are running around flapping their arms about transgender kids and bathrooms, please provide me two simple bits of context:
1) The number of times during 2016 so far that transgender kids have attacked other kids in public school bathrooms in the USA
2) The number of times during 2016 so far that transgender kids have attacked other kids anywhere in public schools in the USA
If you’re feeling that 2016 so far is too difficult a time frame within which to find an Attack Of The Transgenders, try 2015 – the whole year.
Postscript: So far, no one is able to find me the context I was looking for, so let me provide a little of my own: Last year saw a record high murder rate against transexuals in the United States. Also, more than 25% of transgender people have been physically assaulted because of their gender status. It looks like violence by transgender people isn’t nearly the problem that violence against transgender people is.
