Two Transgender Men Killed

Two Transgender Men Killed

As members of President Obama’s newly minted “sexual minority” category, crimes involving gays or cross dressers are elevated to top priority status by the police and the media. One of the men who killed transgender male, Islan Nettles, 21, (pictured left) is already in police custody in New York.

The NY Post reports that Nettles was beaten by a group of men after a verbal altercation at 11 p.m. Saturday. Cops said the men hurled homosexual slurs at Nettles, who died in Harlem Hospital Thursday night. A 20-year-old man was arrested in connection with the case.

No arrests have been made in the murder case of reality TV star Domonique Newburn. The cross-dressing San Bernadino, Calif., man was found dead on the floor of his apartment Tuesday evening. Police say neighbors heard screaming and shouting coming from Newburn’s apartment. Cops say the position of Mewborn’s body indicates that he tried to escape through a window. Police found forensic evidence inside and outside the apartment.

Witnesses described a black male, in his 30s or 40s, fleeing the scene in the victim’s black 2004 Mercedes — license plate 7AAY925.

Newburn was one of the stars of the reality TV series “Hollywood Houseboys,” which aired in 2010. The series followed the lives of four gay friends trying to make it in Hollywood.

Police have not categorized Newburn’s death as a hate crime.

      What about women acting like men? I tend to think they get a pass because they have puss.

      I think crimes against gay people should not be hate crimes anymore. Gay people want equal rights so the crimes shouldn’t get special attention. Most times it’s gay people killing other gay people. It’s usually scorned lovers and such. Or gay men posing as women and “straight” men prending not to know they laying up with a transgender. DL men pretending not to notice an extra set of balls in the room should not qualify as a hate crime.

      A hate crime is defined as a crime committed against someone who possesses the qualities not deemed in the norm AND when that quality is a factor in the crime, ex; Calling someone a faggot or a Sissy boy either right before or while the violence is being perpetrated. Even with as many gay people as there are, it’s still not the majority…same for black people, disabled, etc…

      I had a transgender friend who was dishonest with a lot of straight men. He really got us all caught up in very frightening situations when men realized he was a male. They would threaten us accusing us of not telling the truth about his gender. I had to leave him/her alone because it was very dangerous during the early ’90s when it came to transgender males. I am so glad now that she/he is now living his life as a gorgeous and beautiful male.

      :shocked:

      you might not be “excusing” this violence but your thought pattern is exactly what leads to this violence. live and let live.

      something good does come from it. the person is expressing themselves in a way that is honest to them. we complain about gays being on the down low but then chastise them when they live their lives they way they see fit.

      harlem has a pretty big gay population. the areas around 114th & 7th/8th-ish is basically like the village as far as venues for gay black men go. if im outside early enough or if im out late enough, i see a lot of tranny prostitutes in the upper 120s on the east side. so clearly there’s a market & acceptance for them and im thinking it was just a regular crime as opposed to a hate crime….but who knows.

      Thing is with murder your “intent” comes into play. So them yelling slurs, coupled with any kind of past aggression towards gays and trans ppl, will speak to the nature of their true feelings towards these groups of ppl and versus their feelings toward the individual person.

      Thats why the media is talking about them ignorant ingrates in OK even tho they had a white friend driving them.
