I have several very conservative friends and it pains me to keep calling out the failings of conservative politicians, media, and followers. But the facts are the majority of conservative pundits and news wonks would love to see transgender people put into internment camps, or worse.
This article from MediaMatters gives a few notable examples, but really I post about these things all the time, so this shouldn’t be a surprise. I will say something which some may find heretical, which is that Chelsea Manning certainly did not help transgender credibility in the media.
Thanks to Jennifer Aryn Wiggins for pointing me to this article.
