Thank you for doing the leg-work! I remembered reading a similar analysis a few years ago and in that year's tally the list included both several deaths by natural causes and at least one gay man who had, apparently, no history of cross-dressing and no obvious reason for inclusion.

1 / A fact for the next time someone tells you trans people are at an astronomically high risk of violence:

In 2017, the rest of Americans, looked at as one average, were just over 1.66x more likely to be murdered than a trans American.

Looks to me that majority of these are MALE on MALE murders. There is at least one which is a TiM killing a TiF - so same old, same old - MALE violence against a WOMAN- just the pair of them are totally confused as to what they both are.

Half of the problem is NOT using the correct *SEX BASED* descriptor terms. MAJORITY of these listed are TiMs - Trans Identifying Males. Thus they should ALL be referred to with the correct sexed pronoun of "HIM".

Otherwise it confuses the facts.

Start with the correct language and then the correct facts.

And then do a comparison with how many WOMEN (not the ones pretending to be women) being killed *each week* in the world. Its on average 3 per week in the UK.
