I just read this note by my friend. Its horrific description of violence that was committed against her initiated my sick sick slew of facebook profile updates.

I am mortified and angered that there is no place safe in this world for those who do not conform to the cisgendered and cissexual norms that our society inculcates us with.

I want to ask all of my friends to read this. It vividly describes violence against women and those who are visibly non gender-normative.

After reading this, I want us all to consider what we can do, in our day-to-day lives, to challenges cisnormativity and heteronormativity so that maybe there can be a time and a place where this is an historical piece of trivia rather than a daily fact of life for queer and/or trans folks everywhere.

I think you have to be FB friends with the person in order to read the note, because I keep getting redirected to the home page when I click on the link.
