Thousands of Stories Encompassed in the #metoo Movement Are Not Being Told

“I stayed silent because so many people believe trans women are “too disgusting” to be assaulted, or that we’re sexual predators ourselves. But I’m not staying silent anymore.” — Sarah McBride

Bravo, Sarah! Unfortunately, the media largely dismissed whatever stories tricked out afterward, reinforcing the fact that Trans women who speak out would be discarded in favor of a more family friendly movement. There are a few, but not enough to demonstrate the magnitude of the problem we have, as trans people, compared to our cisgender counterparts.
