The recent killing of a defenseless trans-woman has rocked Vermont with sadness and a feeling of shock. Trans-women have hard enough lives as it is, but to have to worry that a person you are spending time with might kill you is another thing. I didn’t know Fern Feather, but I know who she represented. Trans-women are killed each year just because of who they are by hateful people. I don’t know what was going on in the killer of Fern’s mind, but to be killed for what she allegedly did is reprehensible. As I write this, I’m having a tough time organizing what I want to say.
TRANS-WOMEN ARE NOT ON THIS EARTH FOR YOU TO KILL.
STOP KILLING US!
