What's the Deal with GLBT?

2 years ago I worked on the Transgender Day of Remembrance. On average, 4 trans people are murdered per month in North America. Many are sex trade workers, many are drug addicts. There are so many arguments:
  1. Four isn't that many, in relativity to the hundreds of others who are killed.
  2. Being deceitful to Johns is a terrible thing and of course these men are going to lash out, they don't even use their real names.
  3. These people need psychological assistance, it's a shame they lost their lives, but what do they expect?

People, fucking riddle me this- how are you gonna justify murder? Is there a trans militia threatening your families? Or are you just a bunch of red necks who would murder someone if there were no consequences?

Transphobic and homophobic is racist, sexist, ableist, elitist, etc. It is fundamentalism, fanaticism, and terrorism. If you are against gay marriage, then you are against gays- and that means that you do not believe that "every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination". It's called the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. (Umm, it's our constitution) Maybe if you'd forced all of us to recite this instead of the Lord's Prayer, you wouldn't be such a treasonous lout.

RE: Medical Comments. Here are the latest comments on the anti-gay marriage campaign that is sweeping the nation. These factoids are excellent:

  • "Essentially all surveys show the number of homosexuals to be only 1-3% of the population. The pressure for introducing same-sex marriages comes from a very small section of society.' - Hmm, the pressure to stop the use of depleted uranium in landmines also comes from a small section of society, perhaps we should bring this to the attention of the United Nations.
