    Perhaps the title may be a bit blunt for some, but we all know this to be a significant problem and it seems to be getting worse. On the surface, it seems to be an extension of Bash The Queers, but I think there is more to it.

    Probably we have all read accounts of the basic information surrounding the violent death of a trans woman. Usually there is time and place information as well as a brief account of what happened (if known). It is always astonishing to me how rare it is for someone to be arrested in connection with the event, but that is a topic for a different time.

    Rarely do we have any detailed account of the events that led up to the violence. There will be vague references, such as “witnesses say that an altercation broke out just before…” or “friends of the victim say that she had been romantically linked with…”, but rarely is there anything more specific. It is almost like saying “Violence broke out and someone died” and leaving it at that.

    But, here’s the thing. In MANY cases, when a trans woman is murdered, it isn’t due to a stab wound or a gunshot wound. It is due to Multiple stab wounds or Multiple gunshot wounds or Multiple blows with a blunt object or an amalgam of the above. Further, sometimes burning the body is included just for good measure. The way the reporting is done, it is very rare to gain any insight as to what might have happened to bring about this degree of rage.

    Now, one of the possibilities is always the discovery that all is not as it seems. Clearly, that has happened in the past. But, I wonder if there are other things in play.

    So, does anyone have any thoughts or insights to share?

      Leslie:

      Yes, intentional deception does occur, unfortunately, and the result can be disastrous. Very unpredictable things can happen.

      I would also guess that someone might enter a situation and believe that they are OK with things and the reality sets in that it isn’t OK. The thought process would be: If you’re an XYZ, what does that make me? Might be a thought that folks can’t handle.

      I don’t know if any of this is a reason to go bat-shit crazy, however. Does that mean that the degree of masculinity so weak in so many?

      DeeAnn Hi , I will chime in on this if i may . I to have read with great horror and sadness on the murders of innocent trans women . My first thought is like you describe , the discovery of all is not as it seems , maybe she like us is looking for love in all the wrong places , bars , on line , chance meetings . Maybe she flirts with someone , maybe a kiss is had , maybe in front of his friends . Does he feel his man hood is in jeopardy , and strikes out in rage when he finds out ? Peer pressure i think has a lot to do with this , what will his friends think of him if they  find out ? So many pretty women like us live in fear of being hurt of worse , we need to stay aware of our surroundings , bars and online dating is not always safe . Meet in public places , be honest about who you are up front . Coming on to someone then telling them is not smart and dangerous . I wish we lived in a more nicer world , but we do not . Our best defense is a good offence as it is said , be up front and in like company . We have a lot to offer a man , not just sex , but a very sweet lady who cares and isn’t afraid to show it . I pray for us all . Leslie
