Transphobic hate crime victims tell attackers that enough is enough


Two transgender women harassed in a restaurant sent a video message to their abusers to say that they could not bring them down. A video of the incident was recorded and shared on YouTube. In the video, a man can be seen approaching the women and sitting beside them. Speaking in Spanish, the man said: “I’d like to sit with a lady,” according to Other people in the restaurant started to giggle. But the situation escalated when another man asked the women what reproductive organs they have. The women then warned the men to pay them some respect, and said they should respect all women. But when the man called them “f*****s”, their verbal argument turned into a fight. One of the women then started punching her aggressor, resulting in a fist-fight between the pair. The second woman joined the fight after another man tried to hold her back. She then took off her shoe and started beating the man with it as he tried to run away. When the man fell to the ground, the women left the restaurant, leaving the second man standing and rubbing his head. The video has been viewed more than 40,000 times since it was uploaded to YouTube last week, with many praising the trans women for being brave enough to show resistance.
