As some of you were aware of, I made my MSNBC pundit debut on January 5 to talk about (briefly) transgender murders and why they are happening.
It a subject that deserves more than the three minutes it got on MSNBC Live.
I wanted to make these points, and give examples backing them up./
*The anti-trans murders are predominately intimate partner violence.
*They are happening because of anti-trans rhetoric being spread by the Republican Party, TERFs, evilgelicals and orgs like the Heritage Foundation
*That anti-trans rhetoric is also being spread by pop culture figures like JK Rowling and Dave Chappelle
*Conservative media is also playing a role in spreading the anti-trans rhetoric that results in our murders.
*The Southern Baptist church and the Roman Catholic Church are also responsible for spreading anti-trans rhetoric from their pulpits.
Since i didn’t get enough time to explain them during MSNBC Live, it’ll have to wait until i get to Creating Change 2020 in Dallas next week.
