Intolerance all around

Today - November 20 is International Transgender Day of Remembrance 2012

When you look at this Memorial List and realise it is of some of those murdered in just the last twelve months it is gut wrenching. All those lives cruelly cut short due to intolerance and ignorance.

What should also be added to that list are those that kill themselves and who have, in effect, been constructively murdered by society around them.

I hear people give lip service to understanding but sadly I think there are not many. Trans is not a lifestyle choice and the sooner people truly realise the better.

Thank you to Anji for bringing this to my attention today.

Doris you are very welcome. Let's hope that the day will come when there are no names to list.
