I live in Georgia. I can’t even use public restrooms because of danger of violence. People I knew personally have been murdered for being trans. I know dozens of trans people who have been physically attacked for being trans, I have been assaulted multiple times. I get death threats weekly. An elected official in my state (MTG) has called more than once for violence against trans people.

Dozens of physical attacks on trans people for being trans! Yikes. The poster himself says he has been "assaulted multiple times" for being trans and gets weekly death threats. Double yikes. Why are there no headlines, then? Why is there no news coverage at all?

The US media went wild for the Jussie Smollett story, bought the whole thing hook, line and sinker. Tales about how trans people have been victimized are tailor-made for the MSM. So why are pro-trans media outlets like CNN, NBC, NY Times, WaPo, USA Today, LA Times, SF Chronicle, VICE, Buzzfeed, etc all ignoring these important stories?

I still remember when one got beat up pretty badly (don't remember the name), got hugely shared across social media and a lot of news coverage, they were so excited to have this example to point to of a real-life hate crime against a TIM...and then it turned out that, no, he wasn't beat up for being trans, he was beat up because this adult-ass white man attacked a 12-year old black girl, dragged this scared child around by her hair and filmed himself doing it because he was proud of himself for 'teaching her what happens' when she makes fun of him (he looked like a clown like many of these dudes, so she laughed), he uploaded it and bragged on it...and she had male relatives who saw it and found him. Yes, yes, vigilante justice bad, but I'm not losing sleep over this creep learning he doesn't have a blank check to do shit like that free of consequences.

When that side of the story came out, the whole thing got memory holed very quickly.

precisely.

I read somewhere that some personality disorders manufacture a type of paranoia where threats are magnified or imagined...makes me think this is it.

The level of absolute bullshittery is astounding. There would be marches in the streets here if that happened. That person is delusional. XD
