I almost hated to “recommend” this story because it’s so painful to read these ignorant and hateful statements over and over again. If it were just the Republicans saying them, I could brush them off or have a good laugh (especially in the case of Trump). But as most trans people (especially trans women) know or find out all too quickly, these attitudes are held by quite a number of people who consider themselves to be “liberal” as well. Including some self-proclaimed “allies.”
