We Are The Boogeyman

According to Wikipedia a Boogeyman… “is a type of mythical creature used by adults to frighten children into good behavior.”

Well trans people have been made in to boogeyman by Trump Jr.
Donald Trump Jr. had lambasted trans women athletes at a rally of his father's supporters who later invaded the U.S. Capitol.

At the same rally where his father encouraged supporters to march on the U.S. Capitol, Donald Trump Jr. lambasted transgender athletes.

Trump Jr. stirred the crowd on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Wednesday by citing a recent study that suggested trans female athletes retain an advantage over cisgender women and girls for a year after beginning hormone treatment.

“That shows you the mentality of where the Democratic Party is,” he said. “They spent money on a study that came to the incredible conclusion yesterday that trans women playing female sports have a competitive advantage. No shit! Who could have seen that coming?” The clip was captured by Fox News, which cut away from his speech just after that remark. It was shared on Twitter by Justin Baragona of the Daily Beast.
However like most things that come out of a Republican politician it is full of half truths.
Lead author Timothy Roberts, a pediatrician in Kansas City, Mo., told NBC News the Democratic Party did not fund the study, which was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. He also said its findings were more complex than Trump Jr.’s characterization.
The article makes an important point, sports is not a level playing field.
But the point is that Junior used us to stir up hate, he used us just like other Republican politicians use us for votes and campaign donations… they demonize us to stir up hate. 

They demonize other minorities and they don’t care what the results are to those who the disparage.
