Before Bill Corbett blocks me here too, I thought I’d mention to him that 44% of LGBTQ hate murders committed in the USA in 2010 were of trans women. In 1999 it was estimated that trans women are 16 times more likely to be murdered than the average population. I’ve linked the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs’ 2010 report on LGBTQ hate crimes. You can also find a (obviously incomplete, but still hugely important) list of trans* folk who were murdered in this Google Doc via the International Transgender Day of Remembrance:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Arf3CE7dIOxidDZ5NHBQWUpsd2xubE9xOE5NYVVVQmc#gid=0
Mr. Corbett will probably block me pretty quickly after I post this, as he blocked me and several others on Twitter for calling him out on using the word “tr*nny” in a joke. Please add more info and/or let him know that this is completely unacceptable.
