They got the gender right!

I'm linking this, not for the article, but because it's the only time I've ever seen a news article get Brandon Teena's gender right!

Okay, it got Brandon Teena/Teena Brandon's birth gender right.

But what disturbs me is that the woman in the article so strongly identifies with a rapist/murderer that she wants to marry him.

A long time ago I lost all surprise at what humans, taken as a whole, are capable of doing, both the good and the bad.

But I still haven't lost my distaste and revulsion for some of the more heinous acts they commit, or the enablers who support them.

*I just had to get that off my chest.*

They got his chosen gender right as well.

Prosecutors said Teena was killed in a farmhouse, along with two witnesses, because he reported being raped by Lotter and another man after they discovered his biological identity.

That's actually rare in articles about Brandon Teena.

And yes, boggles my mind that someone would want to marry the guy who did that.
