  •  I am sorry. I can't. (6+ / 0-)

    I read the diary and was horrified, but I can't watch the video of someone - trans or otherwise - being beaten. I don't need to watch it to take action against this sort of behavior. McDonald's has been off my list for years for other reasons; now there's another good reason to keep them off my list.

    But I cannot watch that sort of violence.

      For some people, seeing this video could open their eyes and give deeper understanding towards the brutality trans folks face everyday. If your eyes are already open, watching this video is just too heart-wrenching. I should have clarified that. Thank you.

      •  Thank *you*. (3+ / 0-)

        I already know quite a bit about what trans folks face daily because of family and friends who are trans and have dealt with this.
