Small Victory

I’m thrilled that the monster that killed Angie Zapata has been convicted of both murder and a hate crime. It beat Angie Zapata to death – after having sex with her – because she’s transgender. He referred to her as “it”. This marks the first time in the country that someone has been convicted of a hate crime for a transgendered person’s murder. You can read more about the case here. I’m saddened that we even need this law, but I’m glad that it’s being taken seriously.

Now, if only we can keep school kids from calling others gay so that  little boys do not kill themselves to escape the relentless abuse.

I think I need a drink.
