States where it is legal to argue that a trans woman is to blame for your decision to murder her. This graphic refers to so-called "trans panic defense," which is a legal defense sometimes used by defendants on trial for assault or murder.

The defense has been ruled inadmissible in many local jurisdictions, but California (2014) is the only state that has banned use of the defense.

As a group, we have been systematically pathologized by the medical & psych. establishment, sensationalized & ridiculed by the media, marginalized by mainstream lesbian & gay organizations, dismissed by certain segments of the feminist community, and in too many instances, been made the victims of violence at the hands of men who feel that we somehow threaten their masculinity and heterosexuality..." ~Julia… Trans Activists, Lesbian, Gay, Intersectional Feminism, Pro Choice, Challenge Me, Patriarchy, Spoken Word, Transgender

34% of trans people attempt suicide. 64% of young trans people are bullied. 73% of trans people are harassed in public (ranging from insults to physical abuse). 21% of trans people avoid going out in public due to fear. Being transgender is not a choice. Choosing to hurt someone is.

Trans Suicide Attempts by Age - In terms of age group risk, the highest rates of suicide attempts [among trans respondents] in this study were reported among those in the 18-24 age group (45%) and 25-44 age group (45%), with only 16% of those over 65 reporting a suicide attempt. These rates are inverse to the general population, which shows a higher incidence of attempts among older Americans than youth.  Source: Grant, Jaime M., et al. 2011. “Injustice at Every Turn

"I never really related to the theory that being trans meant my body didn't match my brain. I feel like this is a handy narrative that puts all of the pressure and responsibility for change into trans people and off of the rest of soceity. My day-to-day struggles are not so much between me and my body. I am not trapped in the wrong body, I am trapped in a world that makes very little space for bodies like mine." ~ Ivan Coyote (Tomboy Survival Guide)
