@ cis women in Texas – Now is your big chance to put all those posts saying you support Trans women and hate terfs into practice. We need you all to fight against the proposed WPA, which was made to prohibit Trans women from being in women’s bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms.

We need -your- support because this bill is being written in your name, and because both politicians and the media are more likely to listen to you all than to us. We’re framed as a bizarre fringe group, and when we speak up for ourselves it’s easy for these institutions to silence us.

Please, help us keep the public accomodations we so desperately need.

“After minor run-ins with the law in El Paso and Los Angeles on drug and vehicle offenses, Richard Ramirez was imprisoned in Los Angeles for nearly five months in 1983 on an auto theft conviction. He was convicted again in connection with an auto theft in late 1984, and served 36 days in Los Angeles County Jail. Both times, he provided aliases to authorities. The Night Stalker killings began shortly after his second release. “

His father, Julian Ramirez, told a reporter in El Paso, Tex., on Thursday that
“I don’t know if he did it or not.”

“But if he did, he didn’t do it by himself… . I’ve accepted he was a thief, but I’ve never accepted that he did the things they say he did,” the father said.

“The media turned him into a monster,” the elder Ramirez said. “He’s really just a poor boy who was raised to believe in God” but was led astray by drugs.
