"Until moments before U.S. Border Patrol agents shot him dead on the night of October 10, 2012, Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez had passed a pleasant evening in his hometown of Nogales, Mexico.

How to Choose the Right Action

How to Choose the Right Action | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' And Vanity comes along and asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But Conscience asks the question 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right."

Some do’s and don’t's for cisgender people:

Treat trans women the same as any other woman.Use the right pronoun: she, not he or it.Use the name they call themselves.Do not out them as trans without their permission.Do not assume they are lesbian – only about a third are. Most are straight or bisexual.Do not ask what their name was “before”.Do not ask about their genitals.Do not call them “trannies” or “shemales”: those are transphobic slurs that come from the sex industry

Community Village Sites's insight:

 

The hate crime statistics against trans women are alarming.
