Transphobe Vampire Infiltrates Texas Congress

[TRIGGER WARNING: TRANSPHOBIC LANGUAGE, MISGENDERING, ANTI-TRANS HATE CRIME, HOMOPHOBIA]

Okay, look at this guy:



This guy, aside from looking like a total douchebag, looks like he's about 16, right?

Apparently, he's 31 or older (it was suspiciously difficult to find his age) and is a Texas state representative. The only logical explanation is that this is a vampire who was turned at 16 and lost all humanity over the centuries, allowing him to become a Tea Party candidate. And of course, the Tea Party is incompetent enough not to notice that their candidate didn't have a reflection.

Anyway, Junior here said in response to someone bringing up transphobic violence and hate crimes (homophobic propaganda at the link) that "dudes walking around in dresses getting beat up" wasn't a problem when he was younger. This is just further proof that he's a vampire, because transphobic assault and murder was indeed a problem in the late 2000's when he was in his 20's and in the late 90's when he was a teenager. And no real early-30-something talks seriously about problems when they were "younger." Before that, nobody knows what trans is, because the existence of trans people is considered somehow sexual and taboo. Because transphobia.

Seriously, though. This privileged white cis dude didn't know about these problems because he's a privileged cis dude and neither he nor his parents nor anyone in his circles gives or ever gave a single fuck about trans women. Now he's trying to use his privileged obliviousness to block basic protections for trans people, who are, of course, extremely vulnerable to hateful violence.

Fuck you, Briscoe.

If you live in Texas (or anywhere, really), this guy's contact information can be found at the bottom of the article linked above. Remember that feminism includes protecting trans women, always.
