Story in the news where I live.
Young non-binary Sasha was riding a bus on the way home from school. Sasha is 16 and does not identify with any gender. You and I might not understand this, but that does not matter. Sasha dresses differently, sometimes wearing a skirt. Sasha was wearing one a couple of weeks ago while on the way home. Sasha fell asleep on the bus. Sasha was then set on fire by another passenger on the bus. Yes set on fire.
The person that did it? Another young person who's mother says "he is a kid. Kids joke around".
KIDS JOKE AROUND. HE TOOK A LIGHTER AND LIT SOMEONE's SKIRT ON FIRE!!!
What did he think was going to happen?
I ask out loud - what the fuck did he think was going to happen? To me this was not some harmless prank. It was an attack on a sleeping child that had done nothing wrong - other than being different.
Luckily, Sasha will survive - at least physically. Hopefully in all other ways as well, which seems possible since Sasha seems to have parents that accept and love him.
They other one? He also has a mother that seems to love and accept him, but I think he is already damaged beyond repair.
