Another great blog from Lexie. It would seem that since the right wing extremists are losing their battle to prevent marriage equality, they have turned their attention to writing quite a spate of anti-trans articles. By coincidence, I read of the suicide of a trans woman at midday today. The haters will say that is because we are mentally unstable. The truth is that anyone being subject to the constant hatred found in articles such as the one Lexie debunks here, and the multitude of other daily obstacles – we can’t even legally use the appropriate restroom in some places – is going to suffer from a variety of stress-related symptoms. People like Hawkins have blood on their hands, and vitriol dripping from their articles.
LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — So, another trans-hate article crossed my desk and looked to be another piece of hack journalism from a fringe blogger. Upon further reading, the level of bizarro triggered the Satire Alarm — it was looking more and more like something right out of The Onion.
A quick search on the net revealed the writer, John Hawkins, is legit. He’s appeared on a live Huffington Post panel and according to wiki: ‘listed by Alternet as one of the 10 Young Right-Wingers Being Prepped to Take Over the Conservative Movement.’
For a guy who supposedly has a psychology degree and seemingly ought to know how to use Google, he certainly discredited himself with the number of inaccuracies in the article. In fact, it the article appears to exist for the sole purpose of unleashing on the masses his personal hate and disgust of transgender people.
