Joshua “Leelah” Alcorn was a 17-year-old boy who committed suicide by walking in front of a truck. Alcorn’s tumblr blog subsequently automatically blogged a suicide note that has since been republished thousands of times, including by Janet Mock, despite medical and journalistic ethics that suggest that publishing suicide notes encourages more suicides. The note asserted that the suicide occurred because Alcorn’s parents did not support their gender identity. Transgender activists also wasted no time establishing a Wikipedia page for a person whose only “accomplishment” is that they violently killed themselves.
In response to the reported suicide, hundreds of abusive people sent abusive messages to Alcorn’s parents through social media, blaming them for the suicide.
In 2014, social justice means sending abusive messages to the parents of a dead child in their worst possible moment.
This is probably the most disgusting display from the Transgender community I have seen in 20 years of paying attention to this community.
