Júlia, a primeira transexual dirigente de um partido português: “O medo de ser assassinada acompanha-me"
Júlia Pereira tinha apenas 15 anos quando a transexual Gisberta foi assassinada no Porto por um grupo de rapazes. Foi há dez anos. Demorou tempo a digerir, mas o que sentiu foi sobretudo medo. Os assassinos de Gisberta eram um grupo de jovens adolescentes, com mais ou menos a sua idade. Podiam ser os seus colegas de turma, os que a insultavam, lhe chamavam nomes, cuspiam para cima, atiravam pedras por ser diferente, por ser uma menina apesar de ter nascido com corpo de menino.

The imaginary predator in America's transgender bathroom war
You have to pee.
If you're like 99% of America, you look at pictograms, predictable gender binaries, to guide you toward the appropriate toilet. A person in pants on the left. A person in a dress on the right. If you're a woman, it's irrelevant that you have a vagina, are wearing jeans and can't recall the last time you donned a triangle dress to a dinner party. You know to hang a right, while men go left. The signage isn't literal, it reveals how culture wants your gender to look. It reveals what door it wants you to walk through.
