Somehow,I did not know that the stats for male victims of sexual assault was 1 in 7. I knew the stat for women was around 1 in 4. Well, I'm sure I'd read the male stat somewhere, but it didn't stick as hard, being a female bodied person and all.

Fuck. I knew it was higher than the media makes it out to be. But...and that's not even accounting for the fact that sexual assault for all genders is under reported.

Fuck you world.

Looking at the TDOR list for this year so far, because I'm not depressed enough already (actually it's been a good day more or less, but you know)

Roy Antonio Jones III
Location: Southampton, NY
Cause of Death: Punched repeatedly and grabbed by the neck
Date of Death: August 1, 2010
Roy was 16 Months old.
Note: 20 year old Pedro Jones told police he had struck the infant several times with a closed fist. Jones said he was “trying to make him act like a boy instead of a little girl.”


This story always tugs my heartstrings out. I am pleased, if I can use that word, that the people who run TDOR put him on the list to remind people that it isn't just trans/genderqueer people who are hurt by transphobia and gender policing, but people too young to know just what they are yet.
