WTF? They better update the charges! I am so angry right now at such pointless violence... And the police are no better!

Naomi V (naomi_v) | 432 comments i don't know where to find the statistics on this. is there more violence against transgender people lately or are we just more informed about it?

It seems that as gay rights are becoming more accepted that the transgendered are now targets, but i don't have any stats to back that up.

From what I've read, there actually has been a spike in anti-LBGTQ hate crimes in NYC in the past year.
