TheHottestTwink saidWhat they did was despicable but was she attacked because she was a trans woman?
She was attacked because she was using the women's bathroom, and they claimed she was a man.
However if I understand the article correctly, she's already had the gender reassignment surgery, so she had every right to use the women's washroom.
And even if she hadn't, and could be plausibly be referred to as a man, it still doesn't give these bitches licence to take out their aggression on this person. If someone is in the washroom and they're not supposed to be, you call the manager, or the cops, and have it dealt with that way!
All things considered, what I saw, and what I read convinces me that these two assailants were committing a hate crime!
After all, lets suppose this was a guy who had used the women's bathroom: do you suppose they would've done this to him? I have my doubts: perhaps they might've slapped him if he had done something truly offensive...but to beat on him like this?
This seems like a case of a couple of animals who saw an opportunity to wail on someone who was different! I hope they both catch a couple of back hands in prison!
