Transgender Awareness Week #TransWk: Wednesday’s info

This infographic is USA-centric but the proportions probably hold true for most countries. The last stat on the infographic is probably the most shameful and, as anyone who follows the news on trans issues knows, not only are trans people not taken seriously when they complain about discrimination, they are also often not taken seriously when they complain to the authorities about physical or verbal assault/abuse. Worse, one could also add that often times the discrimination that trans people are subjected to comes from the authorities and government departments.
