Minus My Humanity

Why not just say a singaporean woman…or man? Hell, even “transsexual woman” would be better than “transsexual.” I guess it’s easier to see “transsexuals” as some kind of mutant rather than a person.

To a person that isn’t trans, it may be hard to understand why the semantics at play here are important. I agree with Rush Limbaugh, words do mean things. Writing this way will dehumanize Kamaruzaman Bin Mohamed Noor. Stripping away a person’s humanity makes it easier to hate them.
