Thought for the Day

oday is Transgender Day Of Remembrance. Since last TDoR, over 200 women like me were killed for being who we are … If you can take your gender identity for granted, it is a privilege. If you don’t have to explain your anatomy or history to partners or even random people, all the while not knowing if they will react violently to your explanation, that is a privilege. … I have to hope that next year that fewer of my sisters will be murdered, fewer of us will be stalked, fewer of us will be harassed, and that the world will be a little less hostile to us.—Kat Haché (Thoughts on TDoR 2014)
