  2. India's IBNLive website's news title was "Transgender succumbs to injuries"

    As if the victim were nothing more than "a transgender." This seems a very offensive article starting with the title and continuing through the body of the article. This may be one of the shortest articles you'll ever see reporting on a murder case.

    BANGALORE -- "A transgender who was allegedly stabbed on October 20, succumbed to injuries at Victoria Hospital in the city. The deceased has been identified as Naveena alias Preethi (32). Abdul Farish, in an attempt to have an intercourse with Naveena, had invited Naveena to his room..."

    It is no big surprise that marginalized transgender people feel they have to resort to prostitution or criminal activities just to survive. I'd like to say I'd never do that, but desperation triggers a strong survival instinct and people in that mode do things they wouldn't otherwise do. Fortunately, I've never found myself having to make that decision. Many of us have. ~ Lori

    'hired killers' raped terrified woman

    I considered not posting this as I find the concept of a MtoF transsexual raping a woman to be a hard one to accept ... but when I think of any person raping another I am both disgusted and left shaking my head, I reject the presence of a civilized being when one has the capacity to force themselves on another. This is a characteristic of an animal. ~ Beth

    Sydney Morning Herald

    A man wearing a black bikini, purple skirt and high heels allegedly indecently assaulted a teenage boy on a Sydney train, police say. The boy, 17, and a friend were on a train from Newtown to Redfern about 6pm yesterday when the man allegedly made ...

    Well, here's something you don't see every day. A cross dressed assailant... obviously not a member of TGGuide. Probably a member of one of our competitors.

    If you ever go out in public wearing a black bikini while intoxicated only bad things are likely to happen. ~ Lori

  18. Transsexual guilty in cooked dog case
    National NZ Herald News
    Transsexual Annabell Quor is likely to be fined for leaving her dog to die of heat stroke when she appears in court today...

    This is a terrible story but come on... look at the sensationalized title to the article. "TRANSSEXUAL," "cooked dog" -- wow, these transsexuals must all be monsters!

    The accused is 75 years old, apparently has had 2 strokes and the dog was left in a car. I'm not saying that's not a horrible thing to happen. It is. It was an awful accident and yes, the suspect may have been negligent. But couldn't the writer hide their bias and temper the sensationalism just a little bit? This is yet another example of unprofessional journalism. ~ Lori
