Trans women are women, and I agree the lives of all women matter. Your assertion that white trans women are killed less frequently than white cisgender women is false. And this was written several months ago, so the number of trans women of color murdered has increased by another 50% for the 2019. That’s just those we know about. These are often people society doesn’t care about and doesn’t pay attention. They also often get misgendered in death and their deaths are not counted among the transgender women who were killed.

It’s interesting, though, that you are commenting on something almost half a year old and the main point of which has nothing to do with your uninformed talking points. It’s almost like you were looking for some place to spout nonsense.

I have to say you come off sounding pretty hateful. I hope you find a way to get peace without taking your anger out on others. Like transgender folx harassed and killed just for existing.

I know you will probably have some hate-filled reply to this. After wasting too much of my time replying to comments on here, my new policy is one and done. I won’t waste my time further. Feel free to spout all the nonsense you want as long as you don’t violate Medium’s terms and conditions.

I wish you all the best.
