Can the liberal media really blame ‘transphobia’ for transgender deaths?

Last week, national media and LGBT activist organizations were quick to frame the tragic murder of 17-year-old Rayquann Deonte Jernigan (Ava Le’Ray Barrin) as a victim of “anti-trans violence.” Yet local news organizations who had reporters on the ground gave a more accurate account from law enforcement investigators. According to Athens-Clarke County police, the murder “was the culmination of a feud between two transgender groups.”

That’s right, “transphobic” violence wasn’t to blame. Violence between “transgendered” persons led to Jernigan’s murder.

You didn’t hear about that in the national news: All you heard was “transphobic violence.”

    I automatically skip over all of this. There is nothing here I have any more interest in. This entire world view is little different than people who claim alien abduction.

      Excellent point.

    • The tranny isn’t the point; the media narrative is.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    I’ll go one step further and speculate that our tranny of color was offed by another tranny of color because violent crime does have a color and that color is the color of black people.
    You can take the tranny outta the hood, but you can’t take the hood outta the tranny!

    Born with a dick and balls = a guy. It’s that simple. It’s a binary category.

    Truthfully, this entire transgendered “debate”, from washrooms to the “woman of the year” BS with Bruce Jenner – a mentally ill millionaire enabled by a leftist secular amoral culture that is rotting and rotten – has made me very skeptical the west can survive without major societal collapse in the next or following generation.

      I believe we used to call that an “IF -> THEN” statement in old school programming.

        A programmer’s wife told him “while you are out, get a loaf of bread.” She never saw him again.

          Same principle as the joke about the programmer who died after following the instructions on his shampoo bottle: “Lather, rinse, repeat”.

    Somewhat relevant, but very disturbing.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Wow! The world is getting sicker by the day. Sad.

  • A Hamilton Guy

    With a name like that I’d want to be dead.

    It’s a valid argument. After all, the death toll from Sunni-Shia conflicts is due to islamofauxbia, isn’t it?

  • tom_billesley

    The death toll from Sunni-Shia conflicts is due to islamofauxbia, naturally.

  • They will try and the useful idiots will latch onto anything at all.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Which they do with nauseating regularity.
