For nearly 2 months, my friend, who is currently my boyfriend, has been in an abusive household in rural South Carolina. He is trans, pansexual, and neuro-divergent. The South Carolina CPS has turned a blind eye to his situation several times due to his identity, orientation, and mental illnesses. After talking to him about it many times, I’ve come to realize it is an absolutely disgusting living situation that he cannot leave. We have talked to our friends about this several times and learned that he is not the only one. There are easily hundreds to thousands of others in this situation. 

Recently, current United States President Joe Biden has passed the equality act. This act states that one cannot discriminate others based on sexual orientation or gender identity. However, this is something we have seen before. Back in the Civil war, the 13th and 14th amendments allow those to be considered “of color” to vote and other basic rights. For the next 100 years, discrimination amongst those of color continued in the south. The 1960’s finally started a change that is still ongoing 60 years later. This is history repeating itself. We have seen what happens. We can’t have the same outbreak of violence against a large group of minorities again. 

This leads me to the solution I have come up with. We need to make noise. We need to avoid violence but still spread the word. We have seen before that once enough attention has been drawn, change will come. I, a trans woman, do not want to live in fear. Please, spread the word. Spread this everywhere. Share to everyone you can. Share this in local news papers. Anything you can. “Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that”- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
