What Say You Now, Suzanne ‘Brazilian Transsexual’ Moore?

After all, the Julie Birch Ill Society probably just cheers whenever a transsexual woman gets ‘cut out.’

From Pink News:

It’s being reported that a transwoman has been shot dead in Brazil.

According to the ‘Guerrilla Angel Report’ blog site, it is claimed the victim, named by the site as Cecilia Marahouse, worked as a performer and that the shooting took place near Fortaleza, north-eastern Brazil, on 11 January 2013.

She is described as being a “well known” figure among the area’s LGBT community.

Earlier this week, British journalist Suzanne Moore apologised for suggesting women were expected to look like “Brazilian transsexuals” in an article published first in the New Statesman and then in the Guardian newspaper.

Yes, I largely gave (and still give) Moore a pass on her original comment– even if not the best wording  to use it really wasn’t transphobic; the racial specifier was what I (and many other people) actually had the most problem with initially, and then of course  she dug  herself a Todd Akin-esque hole using Twitter for a shovel.

What say you now, Suzanne?
