    Boys Don’t Cry just played on tv recently – my daughter watched it with me – she was horrified.  As was I the first time –  and every time I watch it.
    Transgender people are PEOPLE for crying out loud.  
    Thankyou Nancy, CI and CMP for always keeping the important issues in the forefront.

    So heartbreaking. Thanks you for honoring and remembering. 
    It just makes a person crazy to think of the horrendous ways that 
    human beings are treated in our society. 
    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    Nancy, thanks, especially, for emphasizing the “ordinary,” everyday structural violence experienced by so many trans people.  This is so important.

    • @KayWhitlock you know in so many ways it is the worst violence of all

      • KayWhitlock

        @nancy a heitzeg  Yes, because it is considered normative, business as usual, in the dominant, heterosexist, gender conforming society.
