    I'd like to point out that the average life expectancy of trans people is around 30 years, due to murder/suicide etc. I did not create this thread to shame turkey or islamic countries in general. I made it to point out the horrific violence against trans people all over the world.

    I'd also like to say that although my original post said turkey has the highest rate of trans murders in the world, I actually meant europe. Brazil holds the title for the highest rate of trans murders in the world. The USA has a higher rate of trans murders than turkey.

    Apart from the evilness of the act, it's the sheer hypocrisy of it too. So before being murdered she was RAPED? So her murderers must have been sexually aroused by her in order to rape her. Doesn't that speak volumes about THEM ??

    The USA has a rate of 0.49 murders per 10 million people per year.

    15.6 average murders per year. 15.6 x 318 million (population). Answer to that times by 10 million.

    Turkey has a rate of 0.63 murders per 10 million people per year.

    4.7 average murders per year. 4.7 x 74 million. Answer to that times by 10 million.

    So no, I was wrong. But there isn't a huge difference.

    Although I would like to point out that the USA had more trans murders than the whole of europe combined in 2015. (13 for europe, 23 for USA)

    It is ironic that Muslims come top of the left's victim hierarchy, when Muslims (well Islamists) kill their fellow victims lower down the ladder.

    Gays, women, Trans people in this example.

    You wonder when feminists and the LGBT political movements are going to work this out. Never maybe?
