The 4chans sub board known as /pol/ (a well known ultra right reactionary sub board) has publicly and outright stated plans to drive transgender people (particularly trans women) to suicide and stated we should be “rounded up and slaughtered like cattle”.
They have also made indications they aim to align with trans exclusionary radical feminists.
I call upon all of you to send emails to 4chans owner and operator Christopher Poole (aka moot) to shut down the sub board /pol/ and deny this hate group a platform.
Email template for those who need one.
Dear Mr. Poole.
We as members of the transgender community implore you to shut down the 4chan board known as /pol/
As enclosed in this screen shot http://i.imgur.com/k91LSJI.jpg you can see they are using your platform to plan “genocide” against transgender people, who already have a very high rate of suicide attempts. They plan to incite vulnerable transgender people to end their lives, and have outright stated and end goal to see us “rounded up and slaughtered like cattle”. They are using your platform to organize an intended lethal attacks against our vulnerable community.
In light of the incident of David Kalac we take these threats very seriously.
We know you don’t wish the extermination of transgender people and we therefore ask you to demonstrate this by denying this hate group a platform.
I implore each and every one of you to send an email, share this post, write your own articles and contact your allies to aid in this.
Together we can survive.
Together we can thrive.
Together we can stop hate.
