Send that "transgender" freak back to Haiti. We got enough weirdos here. We especially don't need a Haitian freak here.

No, stupid!! We all know that GLBTs and idiots that shoot up are the HIGH RISK GROUPS for spreading STDs. While heterosexuals who do not inject drugs can also get STDs, it is certainly the GLBTs and the drug injecters who account for a disproportionately large percentage of STDs and other diseases!!

I know that attacks on gay men are classified as hate crimes. since it was a transgender woman, does that mean it will be classified as a love/hate crime?

In New York City, yes. In the rest of the state, no, not yet.

New York State still has no protections for trans people while sexual orientation has been part of the protected classes in NY since 2002.

Trans people, in most of New York State, can still be fired, thrown out of restaurants, refused service in hotels and other public accommodations just for being who they are. It's something that progressive and fair minded people in NYS have been trying to change for years except the Republican party has consistently blocked the bill to do that. This past year, GENDA (the Gender Expression Non Discrimination Act) was finally slated for passage until the same sex marriage debate hijacked the efforts and the Republicans staged their ridiculous attempt to thwart Democratic control.

GENDA needs to be passed as soon as the state's Assembly and Senate reconvene so gender variant people in the state can be protected, not only in a few places but in the entire state.

May I suggest you go live out in the desert and never return to civilization again? If you do that you'll never have to encounter all those other icky people you detest so strongly. Of course, we won't be around to listen to your hatefully ignorant rants either but, hey, you can always complain to the lizards and scorpions!

Transgender woman? What the hell is that supposed to mean? It's either a man or a woman.
Looking at the picture, I'm more inclined to think they attacked it because it's ugly no matter what it is.

Yeah, because you just happened to conduct a survey sampling a few thousand people picked at random and came to the incontrovertible conclusion that the GLBT community accounts for a disproportionally high rate of spreading STDs.
You're undoubtedly an idiot and obviously a latent homosexual yourself and your self-loathing about not being able to come to terms with your own sexual preferences manifests itself in your lashing out at the GBLT community. A poster above suggested that you move out to the desert to get away from all those whom you despise but I've got a better idea. Move to the interior of Antarctica and that way you'll not be bothered by those whom you're attracted to, and civilized human beings will no longer be bothered by a cretin like yourself.

Most of the drug users are heterosexuals. Do so research before you open your mouth and put your foot in it. STD's have been running wild in the heterosexual community for several decades.

Go read a book or something and when you know a little bit about the subject you'll look less like a fool spouting off opinions that they have no knowledge about.

[sarcasm]Oh yeah, well sure! Ugly subhumans deserve to be attacked, right? I means, sure, they should stay home during the day so we real people don't have to look at them. If they come out during the day, those uglies need to be chased back inside with sticks and stones or anything else that's handy![/sarcasm]

"Gender variant people"? Is that what we're calling them these days? Is cross dressing freako no longer politically correct?

There are more disgusting heterosexual perverts around you than from the glbt community. So why don't you just leave the glbt community alone and stay off their topix pages. Since no one knows what the word normal really means it is hard to say. Since what one person thinks is normal another one does not. So just go back in your little hate filled world.

Why should anyone care or make it their business regarding a persons sexual orientation?

Are we that bored as a society that we have to find reasons to hate people?

well i just opened this and was blown away by some of the comments here.
Fear comes from ignorance. Ignorance comes from not being educated about a subject.
Hate is just stupid.

Transgender does not mean sexual orientation. It has nothing to do with sex at all. In the core of a humans emotional and spiritual center, at the very core they do not identify with either the female and/or the male gender. They can be female in a male body or they can be male in a female body or they can identify with both.
It is only in western societies that we seem not to have a history of understanding that transgender exists. It has existed for eons. historically you will find reference to 'two spirited' people in our first nations people. you will find that the french government in older times used a transwoman to spy on the russians. If you search the net you will see all of this.

So if GOD decided to put a female in a males body do we have the temerity to question GOD and say 'Hey you made a mistake here'. perhaps it would be best to think about this. If GOD wanted this to exist then we have to accept and find a way to deal with it. Again this is NOT about sex.
