It happens a fortnight ago. The victim still hasn't regained consciousness, but the doctors are hopeful.
You see, certain members of her family don't approve of transsexuals.
This morning (Tuesday), they found Raychel. Her nightgown cut from her, but still attached, unconscious and with her skull fractured, her left arm broken, 6 ribs broken... and her nether regions bleeding profusely, though wrapped in a hotel towel.
Read the whole thing.
So if I seem a little obsessed at times, a little intolerant of those who covertly or overtly approve of this "Christian" family's actions.... well, this is not the only event of this type I know of. It's worse than average, but only marginally. Nowhere near as bad as some. She at least was 22, not 12.
One of them admitted that two of the others had anally raped her. His statement that, "... it was okay, though, they used condoms," makes me ill. The doctors had missed the trauma there because it was minor compared to the beating she had received.Oh well, on to the next battle. With perhaps just a little more determination than before.
Puts my own problems with the APO into perspective, though, doesn't it?
