Simmie Williams

Another gay-identified, gender variant teen, Simmie “Chris” Williams, was killed this week.

I’m surprised that the article focuses on whether or not she was a sex worker and not much at all on the two men who (apparently) killed her. Another media story where trans people are blamed as victims.

This after Sanesha Stewart was murdered in New York and Lawrence King killed in California. All within the past week or so....

In response this blog post/article How to Kill a Transperson was published.
