(CNSNews.com) — The Trans Radical Activist Network (TRAN) has scheduled a “#Trans Day of Vengeance” for April 1 in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, the group announced on its website. This event follows the deadly shooting of six people at The Covenant School in Nasville, Tenn., by transgender “male” (biological female) Audrey Hale on Mar. 27.
TRAN says it will be hosting the event “at 11 am in front of SCOTUS” and there will be a corresponding “online event” the same day, time to be announced.
“This protest is about unity, not inciting violence,” said the organization. “TRAN does not encourage violence and it is not welcome at this event.”
On the web page for the Trans Day of Vengeance, TRAN says, “The Time is Now. The Trans/Non-Binary/Gender Non-Conforming/Intersex communities are facing astronomical amounts of hate from the world. At least a 100 Gender Affirming care ban bills have been proposed. Utah SB16 has been passed and West Virginia’s HB2007 is heading to the senate.”
“Our community is frightened,” said TRAN. “Some have been experiencing mental health crisis’ due to the political climate in our country.”
“‘We’re Here, We’re Queer, and We aren’t going anywhere’ needs to be echoed loudly,” said TRAN. “Like the Stonewall Riots the gays and lesbians were experiencing what the trans community is facing now. This cycle of hate needs to end, in fact it must. Allies, siblings we need you now more than ever.”
In a statement about the deadly shooting in Nashville, in which three childreen and three adults were killed, TRAN said it was “horrified at the acts of violence committed” at the school.
“We are outraged by this tragedy,” said the group, “we grieve for Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, William Kinney, Cynthia Peak, Katherine Koonce, and Mike Hill, and their loved ones.”
“We also reject any connection between that horrific event and ours,” said TRAN. “Vengeance means fighting back with vehemence. We are fighting against false narratives, criminalization, and eradication of our existence. It is also a call to our allies to stand up and fight with us to bring down the forces that try to divide and subjugate us all.”
“TDOV [Trans Day of Vengeance] was created for exactly this,” said the organization. “It is about pushing back against unjuest and inhumane systems that are responsible for the loss of life, rights, and joy. They are the enemy — not individuals.”
According to its website, TRAN is “a nationwide network of activists and community organizers for transgender/non-binary rights.” It’s co-founders are listed as Noah Buchanan, a transgender male (biological female) and “Tsukuru,” a transgender man (biological female).
The national recruitment director is listed as Bo Belotti, “a trans masculine non-binary person with a passion for organizing.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “nearly one million people identify as transgender in the United States,” which is 0.30% of the U.S. population.
Dr. Paul McHugh, the former University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School and the former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, worked with transgender patients for many years. He contends that trasngenderism is a “mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention.”
“At the heart of the problem is confusion over the nature of the transgendered,” he wrote in a commentary for The Wall Street Journal. “‘Sex change’ is biologically impossible. People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women.”
“Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder,” said McHugh.
