Just Another Day In The Life Of A Trans Person

Unfortunately, this is all too typical of the hate that is shown against trans people.

Three young men from North Africa sought to stone two transgender women in the western German city of Dortmund on Sunday.

According to a report on Friday on television station SAT1.NRW, the men attacked Yasmine und Elisa, two transgender women, near the city’s main train station.

“Within seconds we were tossed around…and they took stones from a gravel bed on the corner and threw them at us,” said Elisa.

A police car at the train station appeared as the stoning attack unfolded and arrested the men.

The Dortmund police official Kim-Ben Freigang said the suspects told the police that “such persons must be stoned.“

German media reported that one suspect said "You whores must be stoned."
Why can’t people just leave us alone? These three guys hit on the trans women and then when they found out the women were trans they said that “their” honor had been insulted so they stoned the women.
The three men, according to Yasmine and Elisa, propositioned them. After the men realized that Yasmine and Elisa are transgender women, the men launched their assault with stones.

Middle-eastern asylum seekers and illegal immigrants are not just attacking transwomen.

There were large scale sexual assaults on women in several German and other northern European cities at the New Year. The worst were in the city of Cologne, where several hundred women were robbed and sexually assaulted. The BBC reported on 11th that the police in Cologne had received over 500 complaints of which 40% involved sexual assaults! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-35277249 The figure have since risen.
