Transgender Day of Rememberance

I want to write about this, but I can't.  I am too angry that because of the transphobia endemic to American culture, people who just wanted to be who they are, even when it wasn't what we expected of them, based on what their genitals looked like at birth, suffer harassment, brutality, rape, and murder. These are hate crimes. I am angry that the same people are often harassed and marginalized to the point of depression, self injury, and suicide.
I'm ashamed of us, as a people.
Stop hating people because they're different.
