Transgender Day of Remembrance

[TRIGGER WARNING: SUICIDE, RAPE, SEXUAL ASSAULT, TRANSPHOBIA, HATE CRIME]

So, the Transgender Day of Remembrance was yesterday, and I forgot to post about it because I'm an asshole. Also I do these posts the day before because I'm awesome. I'm an awesome asshole.

ANYWAY. The Transgender Day of Remembrance exists because so many trans people (trans women, especially) are murdered from hate crimes, they need their very own Memorial Day.

Every now and then I take some time to scream about how fucking awful trans people have it. I can't stress it enough, and I say that because no matter how much I scream about it, no one seems to get it.

I'm not kidding around. Maybe this image will help you.

Please join me in flipping out about these numbers. 85%?????????? 85?????????

LOOK AT THIS SHIT AND FUCKING REMEMBER IT, FELLOW CIS FUCKS.

There is some good news, though. President Obama sent a letter recognizing Transgender Remembrance Day to the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund. You can see an image of the letter here. Thanks, Obama.
