GLAAD states that “Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of those those lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence.” I believe that every taking of a life is not only a tragedy, but an act of evil that should carry the fullest punishment under law. I personally believe that every human creature is made in the very image of God and support capital punishment for murder and rape. Your own views on murder and its punishment may differ, but I mention these things because I believe murder in general to be heinous and wicked, and murder of transgender people in particular to be the same.
While I have no qualms or concerns with those who want to set aside time to remember those of a particular community and the violence they face currently or have faced historically (ie. Jews, Blacks, Indigenous peoples), I do have concerns with some of the misinformation surrounding the murder of trans people and how it has been weaponized to facilitate an agenda, such as the erasure of sex-based rights and the indoctrination of young children in gender identity ideology .
