Transgender Day of Remembrance: Recommended Reading
November 20, 2009 § 1 Comment
Today is the Eleventh Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. There’s great reading all over the place.
Rachel at Deeply Problematic says it nicely:
This is not the only day to recognize and fight transmisogyny and cissexism. If you are cis, you need to consider the privilege that you have just by existing. Think about the danger cis women are constantly in just because we are women. Trans women face exactly that danger, but their trans status makes them many times more vulnerable.
To the dead, you are not forgotten. And to the living, let us work together so that there may be no more names.
