The 18-year-old male-to-female transgendered teen was found beaten to death in her apartment. No matter what your personal feelings are about the transgendered youth issue the brutal and shocking death of a teenager in Colorado should cause every American to demand justice.
In my admittedly limited experience with the transgendered, I have always found that male-to-female transgenders tend to adopt exaggerated mannerisms that they perceive as “female” but are most often copied from transvestites. They are likewise often attracted to others who exhibit exaggerated mannerisms like men who are overly “macho.”
As Dr. Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, author of the excellent book on profiling, Vulture: Profiling Sadistic Serial Killers, observes in her essay Importing Violence many Latin American cultures support a sexually violent Machismo culture among men that encourages and rewards sexualized violence. Colorado has a very large Latin American immigrant population.
My theory of the crime: Angie Zapata gets involved with a”macho” man who gets scared that she’ll eventually out him to his scumbag friends. He kills her and hopes someone will assume it was a random hate crime.
Just recently we saw a case where a group of Muslims “punished” a suspected homosexual by gang raping him, and in this case I believe we will see that the perpetrator is someone equally “macho.” As long as we cling to the multiculturalist belief that all cultures are equal and thus all morality is relative, we will never be able to confront the attitudes that lead to this sort of disgusting crime and we will continue to fail Americans like Angie Zapata.
