  1. Obviously I liked this post as support for spreading the word, and for your cry for a better outcome rather than for the story itself, which is tragic. Things like this make me think the human race hasn’t really evolved that much…..

      It does hurt me to read articles like the one I linked to here. Thank you for your words of support. The personal struggle here is not to become full of fear myself. I can’t and won’t let that happen.

      Interestingly enough, studies show that human evolution has sped up drastically for the last 10,000 years. Violence on the streets, overall, is decreasing too. The murders of transsexual women however are not decreasing in frequency. If only our rapid evolution would eliminate the hatred of the Other, of alterity, that precipitates these murders… I don’t think that’s going to happen any time soon though.

      Thanks for your comment.
