I was just watching the 10:00 O'clock news, and a Virginia State Policeman was holding a press conference. He was answering reporter's questions, about a suspect shooting and killing eight people in Appomattox, the city where Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered to Gen. Ulysses S. Grant to end the US Civil War. The Virginia State Police seem to have the guy surrounded, after he shot at one of their helicopters.
What possesses someone to murder eight people? I have lived a life of gender identity dysphoria. I have never felt like I fit in. My own mother was both physically and emotionally abusive to me. I was bullied by classmates, and neighborhood thugs, and suffered consent harassment on the job, by macho rednecks, who couldn't handle the fact that I wasn't one of them. I have had every reason to despise many of the people around me, yet I have never wanted to kill any of them. What kind of hell does some poor soul have to go through, to want to murder those around him? I can't even fathom it.
