An Unfortunate Episode of Transexual Train Violence

Know what happens when you mess with a transexual on the train? You get maced. This is a terrible story.

This isn’t exactly a post on mitigating punishments for queerphobia, or how to educate ill-informed children, but to see what happens when someone uploads an unfortunate incident to YouTube.

The gal in pink, identified as transexual by whoever posted the video, was not taking shit from these two little boys the day before her birthday. We can hear the comments already: “Dress like that and you’re bound to be harassed.” Or: “Mouth off to a stranger and you’re bound to be attacked.”

But macing kids? For saying stupid shit? We wouldn’t even do that to Balloon Boy.

Meanwhile, on YouTube the kids are rallying behind the unfortunately dressed mace-r.
