22 names.   Four of them Texans, two each in Dallas and in my Houston hometown.  21 of them African American, and 15 of them under the ago of 30.

It needs to stop.   But it probably won’t until the transphobic ignorance stops.  It probably won’t stop until the Republican Party stops trying to use transphobic hatred to drive their deplorable voter base.

And it won stop until cis people recognize the humanity and human rights of trans people
