This piece is part social commentary and part memorial. The ugly phenomenon of bathroom policing continues in earnest, thriving on the othering of transness. As a high school teacher in rural Washington state, I have recently watched this trickle down to local school board meetings where adults regularly spew hate and fear-mongering rhetoric towards trans youth. This only serves to make some of our most vulnerable even more of a target. So far this year 46 trans folks have been killed violently. I have included their names in memorial. Trans lives are worthy of protection.
