LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — Do I condone this? Absolutely not! Things tend to end badly for trans women when violence erupts. But without a doubt, most of us have wished to confront those who belittle us in front of a public audience. And on a Houston, Texas bus, a fed up trans woman did just that.
In this case, a few punches were thrown, but both sides backed away after the point being made was taken by the transphobic passenger. The unidentified trans woman claimed a small victory — something that’ll bring lasting satisfaction for many of us, even though we’ll never admit it publicly.
