PUNISHMENT FOR “MISOGYNISTIC MISOGYNISM” AND “RACISM” IN THE UNITED STATES: Letter written to the president of the United States from a transgender woman who was “punished” for expressing her opinion about transgender people in the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Posted by Polygon on Sunday, April 28, 2018 10:57:20 A transgender woman wrote a letter to the President of the U.S. on April 28 detailing how she was punished for expressing an opinion about the transgender community.
“You have a great job, but you are not doing your job,” the letter reads.
“It’s your fault that I am no longer able to work.
It is your fault for making me suffer and you have no right to demand that I suffer.
It’s your job to make me feel uncomfortable, and that’s the only reason you’re still here.”
The letter, which was published on a transgender website and also posted on the social media website Medium, details the harassment and humiliation she faced in the days following the invitation to the dinner.
She was asked by a White House photographer to pose with him in front of the President.
After being asked to take her photo with the President, she was “banned from the White [House] press room.”
The photographer then proceeded to put her in a room with other transgender people, forcing her to remove her clothes and then to urinate on herself.
“After several days, we decided that we were going to make a public statement, and we went public,” the writer writes.
“I received death threats.
I was stalked.
I felt unsafe.
I knew that if I didn’t act now, it was only a matter of time before I would be harassed and killed.”
She writes that she felt “unable to continue my activism.”
She then wrote a second letter to Trump saying she would be happy to meet with the president and that she would not be intimidated.
“At the time, I had to take a break from activism and my activism and it took a lot of time and I have not stopped, so I can’t help but think that you might not understand,” she writes.
After the backlash, the writer decided to write a follow-up letter, but she had to wait to be interviewed.
“This experience left me very disillusioned,” she wrote.
“When the president said he would be meeting me at the White, I knew it would be hard for me to continue.”
The writer, who identifies as female, wrote that she had a “real sense of personal failure” for being “forced to live out my gender and live in the public space of a public place where other people have access to my private life.”
She said she was also “disgusted” by the “hostility” the White house took against her, as well as the “exclusionary and hateful tone” of the invitation.
“In my case, it made me feel unsafe and that made me angry,” she continues.
“And I have been angry at the Trump administration for quite some time.
I’ve been angry with them for years.
I think we all have a right to be angry, but I don’t think that’s a right for everyone.
That’s not the kind of anger that is needed in the Trump Administration.”
The author also writes that transgender people face discrimination in the workplace.
“As a transgender person, I have experienced discrimination and I’ve had to fight for equal treatment.
I have also experienced discrimination in school, which is why I was afraid of going to school at all,” she says.
“Being transgender and being a transgender student is a very difficult subject.
I don, however, think that I was discriminated against.
There is a transphobic and anti-trans prejudice in the country that I don´t think is going to change anytime soon.” “
Transgender people are still discriminated against on a daily basis in the US.
There is a transphobic and anti-trans prejudice in the country that I don´t think is going to change anytime soon.”
The person who wrote the letter, named as Laura, said she wanted to raise awareness of the discrimination transgender people experience.
“The transgender community deserves better.
It deserves a better environment, a better society,” she said.
“We also need to raise our voices and demand that President Trump and the Whitehouse do not silence the voices of the transgender people.
This is an issue that needs to be taken seriously.”
The White House did not immediately respond to Polygon’s request for comment.
“President Trump has called for a thorough investigation into this incident,” a spokesperson for the WhiteHouse said in a statement.
“That investigation will include ensuring that the incident is reported to law enforcement and the President will be taking any necessary actions to ensure a swift resolution.”
The tweet also said the president has ordered a review into the matter.
“These actions are part of the president’s commitment to working to ensure the safety of transgender
