Unfortunately, this is all too typical of the hate that is shown against trans people.
North African men suspected of stoning transgender women in German cityWhy 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.
“That was barbaric what they did. They are barbarians,” one of the victims said.

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."
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.
