For some reason I can't find that thread on the app or I'd have posted on it.
Anyway, does anyone know of a link that neatly lists the relevant numbers in one place please?
I don't want to link to the MN thread in the fb convo and the trans website linked to in the thread doesn't list the numbers (the fab OP of the thread had done some digging around and number crunching).
Even though he's usually very evidence-based I suspect when he made the original claim (about trans people being more at risk of violence etc), it didn't even cross his mind that it might not be true, it's so often repeated.
I have asked him for sources to back his claim, we're in different time zones though so it might take a while (assuming the sources even exist).
Of course, the onus is on me as I'm the only one in the thread suggesting the emperor has no clothes. 🤷🏻♀️
Ask him to provide his own figures then. He'll probably produce some from Brazil and Mexico, and then you could point out that trans activists are usually white and middle class, not BME and involved in sex work.
