Today is the Transgender Day Of Remembrance. This is a day that is held every year to remember transgender people around the world who have died as a result of anti-transgender violence or hatred. This violence and hatred is worse in some parts of the world than others, but it’s still depressing that it happens anywhere in this day and age.
I know that I’ve probably said this before but, contrary to the impression that you might get from the modern media (on both the left and the right), there’s absolutely nothing “new” about transgender people.
This is a timeless and natural human variation, which has always existed and will always exist regardless of culture, religion, location, politics etc.. So, you’d think that the world would have got used to it by now.
