Rally Planned to Condemn McDonald's Beating of Transgener (sic) Woman
The Baltimore Sun ^ | Sunday, April 24, 2011 | Jamie Smith Hopkins

Posted on 04/24/2011 1:38:25 PM PDT by kristinn

The transgender community is organizing a rally outside a Baltimore County McDonald's Monday night to condemn the severe beating of a transgender woman at the fast-food restaurant.

The rally is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the McDonald's, located at 6315 Kenwood Ave. in Rosedale.

SNIP

Sandy Rawls, founding director of Trans-United, a Baltimore-based organization that works to decrease discrimination against transgender people, said nearly 100 people have indicated on a Facebook page that they will attend the rally. She said the event is intended to raise awareness of hate crimes against transgender people.

There is a new video at the source link. The victim talks about what it's like being "transgender."

And of course they won’t blame the black thugs for the beating, they will blame it on Sarah Palin and the conservatives....bank on it.

“She said the event is intended to raise awareness of hate crimes against transgender people.”

Now the political correctness begins - let’s see what the MSM’s take is on this one...

Yup, the original article spells it “transgener.” Guess it does have something to do with genes. LOL.

Why hold this thing in the evening? They need to do it in broad day light so we can see what these idiots look like and get good video of the perps who might try harassing them.

Look at the video on the bottom. There was no provocation if this person is to be believed. Her account never contradicts the video.

Trannie or straight, male or female, those animals almost killed the dude, stomping and kicking him in the head so many times.

And yet you are.Forget the Black/White aspect as well as the "transwhatever angle"

This was a vicious attack of human beings against another human.....TWO against one

If the savages had a problem with this individual they should have approached management and let them deal with it.

Let's keep the basics in mind here.

Too short of a notice, so ill prepared to not be there.

They should have given a couple of week’s notice so I could prepare to not be there.

Not to excuse the attack but he's up and talking to TV interviewers.

He did look substantially larger than the chicks beating on him.

This might be the worst-written headline of all time. ‘McDonalds’ didn’t beat that person, their customers did.

I know I’m being a pedant, but seriously, don’t these papers have editors?

Of course you are right. I can’t help but feel some Schadenfreude over the leftist media’s quandary over not knowing how to approach this Incident Between Two Maximum Status Victims Groups.

But on the issue itself I have said already and I repeat now:

Those two “teenagers” should be tried as adults and put behind bars for many, many years.

Indeed, this is going to be fun to watch!

I agree on the Schadenfreude but yet I'm in dismay to see how our society has devolved into such conundrum, it certainly doesn't bode well for the future.

Dear Ms Rawls,

Regarding crimes against a transgender/queer person: at what point does an ordinary crime rise to a hate crime?

Shirley there must be a difference between a plain ordinary crime and a hate crime. What is it?

If that person was “just” a male, a beating would be called for if he refused to leave the women’s rest room.

Did you see the other videos of violence at other locations that were trying to hire 50k employees?

Watch, they'll be sued for trying hiring people in a "volatile" environment.

Just guessing....

They fought because she looked at one of their men. I guess that is a “diss” of sorts in the subhuman subcultures.

... those animals almost killed ..., stomping and kicking him in the head so many times.

All the while the store manager did nothing to stop the criminal assault. He even warned the perps that the police were on their way. Why hasn't he been charged with allowing possibly and even enabling the assault.

At a minimum McDonald's should fire his butt along with the employees on film that shouted encouragements at the perps or laughed at what the perps were doing.

Is this transgender woman a woman or a man genetically speaking?

If the transgender woman is really a man is it necessary for the Black woman to become angry for a man looking at her man. Does that normally happen?

This is getting really confusing!

This reminds me of a funny story from my last employer, from which I retired. One day I was really fuzy and went to the men's john to peform a function. While I was sitting on the toilet the john door opened, then I heard a very upset female vloice say, "O lordy, lordy!" and the door slammed as she ran off. To my horror I thouht I might have accidentally stumbled into the womens' john, so I carefully looked over the top of the stall and, to my great relief, observed two urinals. She was just as fuzzy as I and had blundered into the male john.
