Men behaving badly

About a week ago "comic" Lil Duval was asked on the radio program The Breakfast Club what he'd do if he found out a woman he had a relationship with was transgender.

This might sound messed up, and I don’t care. She dying. I can’t deal with that.

--Lil Duval

When cohost Charlagne Tha God told him "you can’t go around killing transgenders," he did not back down:

If one did that to me and they didn’t tell me, I’m going to be so mad I’m probably going to want to kill them.

Texas activist beaten by two men because of gender identity

Stephanie Martinez is a transgender activist in Austin, TX. She met Rayshad Deloach in an online chat room. Deloach said he was interested in learning about transgender people/issues.

This is not unusual by itself. We must educate our fellow citizens about who we are in order to establish our niche in society. That's pretty much why I do what I do.
