If I need any more incentive to push harder to pass hate crimes and nondiscrimination legislation that protects trans people, I need to look no further than north of the Red River into Oklahoma
This disgusting series of Facebook posts came to light from Oklahoma courtesy of the Hate Trackers website. Burney and Jamie Crenshaw in the Achille ISD parents group began ranting about a 12 year old trans girl attending school in the district just north of the Texas-Oklahoma border. It didn’t take long for the Facebook posts to dive into the transphobia ignorance and dehumanizing trans hate speech sewer.
And nope, these aren’t the trans child’s peers. They are adults.
“Just tell kids to kick ass in the bathroom and it won’t want to come back,” wrote Bickerstaff in his FB post.
Eddie Belcher, who has alleged white supremacist ties, advocated cutting the trans child’s genitals.
“If he wants to be female, make him female. A good sharp knife will do the trick,” wrote Belcher.
The conspirators also advocated in those trans hate posts coming to subsequent Achille ISD board meetings to demand they take action against the pre-teen trans student.
Gee, wonder if they will be bringing pitchforks and tiki torches to those Achille ISD meetings as well?
The disturbing posts also got the attention of trans parents groups, the Oklahoma media, the Achille ISD and our TBLGIQ accomplices. Meanwhile in reaction to the violent transphobes, the parents of the trans girl sought an emergency protective order on August 10 against Crenshaw.
Achille ISD took down the transphobic posts from their Facebook page, and it does have an anti-bullying policy Wonder what Achille ISD superintendent Rick Beene thinks about it and these violent parents wishing to harm a trans child?
Hopefully they have also gotten the attention of law enforcement officials in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma was one of the Republican controlled states in which the legislature pushed for anti-trans hate legislation that fortunately failed.
What happened in Achille is a salient example of anti-trans rhetoric being peddled by the TERF’s, the conservative movement, white fundamentalists, right wing media and the GOP for political advantage now filtering down to the unwashed rural Trump loving masses and having negative impacts on the real lives of transgender people.
Anti-trans hate thoughts + anti-trans hate speech = anti-trans hate violence/murders. You hatemongers are aiming that rhetoric against trans children and it needs to stop.
I repeat, stop it now before it gets to the violence and murder result of the Equation of Trans Hate.
