  •  This is not just a case about injustice against (8+ / 0-)

    the Transgender community, this is an affront against justice against people and it should not stand. Anyone that cares about justice should be speaking up and demanding justice on this.  We will not have equal justice for all until everybody recognizes that Transgender people should have no more rights than anyone else, BUT NO FEWER RIGHTS THAN ANYBODY ELSE.

    It doesn't matter if the Transgender community is very small or very large - human rights are not about how large any of the groups that one fits in is.  Sure that larger number will make our voices heard more, but I think that this is where some kind of lose allegiance would help many groups that have had and continue to have their rights trampled (e.g. women and Blacks).  Larger numbers will give us a louder voice, but just because any group doesn't have the larger numbers doesn't mean that we don't need to fight for their rights - all of us.

    “In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it … we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
