The perpetrators of these hate crimes are not men or women or human. They are the lowest of the low.

Because calling it gay bashing is like um totally inclusive of transfolks who are bashed and murdered at a far higher rate than your average homo.

Queers united = gayjacking of trans oppression.

Go. F**k. Yourself.

anonymous - "gay bashing" is a word and we highlight words of importance for all lgbtqia people. i think you should peruse the site and see how much trans activism and awareness we work for before you jump to conclusions. we also have tons of trans folk and allies here whom i know feel very welcomed and spoken for.
