Yesterday, the trans community was stunned to receive news of the fatal stabbing of 16-year-old trans TikToker Brianna Ghey. Ghey was spending time at Linear Park in Warrington in the UK when two classmates stabbed her to death, presumably for simply being trans and in public.
I see the GC crowd are today “defending women” by insisting that a murdered 16-year-old trans girl be labeled as male on her death certificate

I’m absolutely f’ing livid. Trans people are being murdered and yet the media is still biased against us.
The state will deadname and put the wrong gender on our death certificates like this poor girl.
She deserved better. pic.twitter.com/wrgHfsiWtN

@justicefor_briannaghey so sad #fyp #foryou #rip #briannaghey #trans ♬ original sound – 🫂
Something important to remember here is that the outrage we’re seeing over Ghey is tied into her whiteness. Trans girls and women of color, specifically Black trans women, are at higher risk than their white counterparts, and it’s important to keep this in mind when discussing violence against our community.
As a white girl I have to say this …
The grief and rage for that young white girl is profound and deserved
We never see this for all the other names. For the poor, the minorities, the excluded, the aged, the trans women of color
Our community is so fractured

This trans girl was stabbed to death by classmates after enduring years of transphobic bullying.
She was just a child. https://t.co/X7SsOvZUTU

Now, “Gender Critical” anti-trans trolls are trying to make sure that Ghey’s death certificate misgenders her.
The transphobic vipers nest on Mumsnet are responding as expected to news of the violent death of trans girl Brianna Ghey 😞
They’re desperate to distance themselves from responsibility that their relentless transphobia and anti-trans lobbying has played any part… 😣 pic.twitter.com/Y3zDjh0HJl

These are the same people who claim they’re “just asking questions.”
Ah. So the GCs are demonstrating how they’re definitely on the right side of history by *checks notes* celebrating the death of a trans girl.

Two teens were arrested on suspicion of murder in the violent stabbing death of Brianna Ghey, a 16 year old trans girl. They weren’t born with this hatred, they were taught. In that, the British media is complicit.https://t.co/LPmofRvZHf pic.twitter.com/cItQ62ZfpG

Now that a 16 year old trans girl has been stabbed to death in a targeted attack by her classmates can we understand that politicians pushing back against “wokeness” is absolute psychopath shit, that the project to exclude and dehumanise us is in fact trying to get us killed

To make matters worse, Twitter doesn’t even want us to know about it.
twitter is fundamentally broken pic.twitter.com/NBAwDWauWM
