Speaking of transphobia and “legal” action against trans* people (see my previous post on the miserable fate that is likely in store for Greek transfolk), it’s happening here — in the United States of America — more and more. While the recent (and truly rather small) victories for proponents of gay marriage have been taking place, persecution of trans* people in America seems to be on the rise. I’m seeing more and more instances of such persecution in my news feeds. I couldn’t begin to report on them all here.
LGBTQI folks need more than marriage. We need, probably most of all, equal protections under the law.
Is America developing its own case of low-grade, low-profile fascism? —I don’t bandy that word lightly. I say what I mean and mean what I say when I use that word.
