The average person was a 1 in 18,000 chance of being murdered.
If the person is trans, that chance turns into 1 in 12 chance of being murdered.
Think about that for a moment.
EDIT: If you’re curious, here’s a blog post that debunks this statistic: . http://www.patheos.com/blogs/wwjtd/2012/05/murder-statistics-of-transgender-people/
If I want to have a drink or do a line, or smoke a joint, it’s nobody’s business but mine.
Yea I feel the same everytime I put hispanic on the application. I wonder if I put black and white will I get the job.
there have actually been studies focusing on this exact thing where they send out resumes with equal qualifications and everything, only difference being the names of the applicants. they find overwhelmingly more responses to the names that are stereotypically white than ones that are stereotypically of a different race. but, you know, there’s totally no racism in this country or anything…
This is really sad.
