It is Transgender Awareness Week, It started Monday. It will culminate on the 20th with Transgender Day of Remembrance.
I have to admit that I have never had political message bumper stickers on my car...or any other message that might inflame someone to deface my vehicle.
A transgender woman says vandals spray-painted hateful words on her SUV in Denver after she decorated it with slogans protesting the results of the presidential election.
Amber Timmons previously had written messages on the windows of her silver Nissan XTerra, including “Not my president!” and “Equality!!
When Timmons woke up Tuesday morning she discovered that her car had been painted...
Swatika and Die
The left side:
It! and Trump
The right side:
Fag Die and He She
She posted the pics to Facebook...and although she got many messages of support, she was accused by many other people of vandalizing her own car.
Timmons said she filed a report with the Denver Police Department. Police said they couldn’t find the report, but if it had just been filed within the past few hours, it wouldn’t be in the system yet.
Timmons was struck by the kindness of her neighbors, who left sticky notes on her windows denouncing the hateful graffiti. One wrote, "I am deeply sorry this happened to your car... Love and peace wins always."
The friendship, the love in our community - the people who are willing to drop anything and everything and come and help you... we got rid of it. We erased the hate. You don't fight hate with hate you fight hate with love.
The people who did this, I still love you. I forgive you. It's fear that's driving you.
