‘Transgender activists also wasted no time establishing a Wikipedia page for a person whose only “accomplishment” is that they violently killed themselves.’
Not all people remembered in history were successful in the conventional sense. This is a very classist statement and it demeans the social problem of suicide itself. I remember in health class in school, we watched a documentary about a young gay man who committed suicide. There is nothing wrong with humanizing suicide stories for a social cause, though the transgenderist movement has of course appropriated tools of legitimate social movements that don’t seek rights at the expense of an oppressed class of people. I feel this kind of statement as quoted is disrespectful to the memory of the deceased, even if he was a young man who felt entitled to sex stereotypes of women. It’s inconsistent with your sympathy for his parents. I’m not interested in reformism, but you have dedicated your life to it, so at least stay consistent with what you are wasting your life on.
Joshua “Leelah” Alcorn was a 17-year-old boy who committed suicide by walking in front of a truck. Alcorn’s tumblr blog subsequently automatically blogged a suicide note that has since been republished thousands of times, including by Janet Mock, despite medical and journalistic ethics that suggest that publishing suicide notes encourages more suicides. The note asserted that the suicide occurred because Alcorn’s parents did not support their gender identity. Transgender activists also wasted no time establishing a Wikipedia page for a person whose only “accomplishment” is that they violently killed themselves.
In response to the reported suicide, hundreds of abusive people sent abusive messages to Alcorn’s parents through social media, blaming them for the suicide.
In 2014, social justice means sending abusive messages to the parents of a dead child in their worst possible moment.
This is probably the most disgusting display from the Transgender community I have seen in 20 years…
