    Default Paper on transphobia

    So anyone know where I can find a reliable source that has the rate of transphobic crimes per country? I'm trying to think of how to word it in google, to figure this out.

    Again, Happy Birthday, prpl.

    Your post caught my eye this morning. I hadn't been aware that we now have a new word for human unhappiness and discrimination. Sigh.

    So my curiousity sent me to google for a moment. I have trouble accessing/narrowing down the information I'm seeking also. The community services offers a class in researching via computer and I never get around to taking it.

    This site came up and it looks promising:

    NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Transphobia

    I'd be interested in hearing more about what you find.

    Good luck!

    I might not be doing this topic, I'm having a hard time finding anything concrete. I only have a week. I really wanted to do this topic, oh well maybe I can reasearch this on my own over winter break.

    What are you interested in finding? The correllatiion between discrimination and culture?

    Did that source have anything to offer?

    Edit: Do you feel old yet? ; )

    I feel no different then I did a week ago

    but I'm back to doing this topic. Right now I'm reasearching Hijras in India


    full topic: specifically which countries have a higher incidence of transphobia what about that culture makes it so high or low? I'll probably pick 3 countries one with a very high rate of transphobia, one in the middle, and one with a low rate.

    Okay.

    Sounds like a huge task.

    Let me see what I can find out for you, hon.

    I'll get back to you later today or this evening on it, hopefully.

    Cool.

    I've asked a few friends who I know are versed in the topic, so if they get back to me with more sources, I'll feed them to you.

    There's also a 20/20 special on tonight about the transman who had a baby recently and is now apparently pregnant AGAIN. I don't know if that will be relevant in any way to what you're looking for.

    Also, look up Angie Zapatos (?) out in Colorado, if you want a specific instance of trans violence. She was bludgeoned to death over the summer by a paramour, when he found out she was trans. But there's many others out there too.
