It’s Hard

Trying to meet new people romantically is hard, Dating is hard and if you are trans it is even harder… and riskier.

NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas - A date for a New Braunfels woman led to a bloody attack after she says she told the man that she was transgender.

Aliah Hernandez's story about the 2014 assault is now featured in Texas Monthly: June Edition.

"He told me he was going to kill me and he almost did," Hernandez said.

She met her attacker while working at a drive-thru window of a New Braunfels restaurant. He was a customer. The two went on a date that led to a motel and that's when she told him that she was transgender.

"He told me, '"I hate homosexuals,'" Hernandez said. "'I'm going to finish with your life. I don't want nobody to know that I was here with you.'"

According to Hernandez, she was beaten until the point of unconsciousness.
People say that you should tell them up front, but then you will never get a date.

Other say you should tell them on the first date but then you run the risk of violence.

The way I see it, it shouldn’t matter if you’re trans but in today’s climate of hate it doesn’t even matter is it in a dating situation, the haters have been giving a green light by the president for violence. Men are being taught to settle things with their fist or even a gun.

The police many time look the other way if you are trans and a victim of an assault and if you are trans in some parts of the country you can’t even get a conviction if you are assaulted because all it takes is one person on a jury to believe you had it coming to you if you are trans.
The person responsible is still a free man.
