I hate when a queer person is killed and the media makes it all about their sexuality. When you do that, you’re basically sending a message to the public that says being queer is a reason to be killed when it’s not. Yes, some people are targeted and murdered for being queer, but not every queer person is killed because they’re queer. Maybe they were killed because they did something bad, or because they were an asshole, or maybe it was just a random act of violence. Stop acting like a queer person’s most important trait is their sexuality. You never hear “straight female killed in an alley,” do you?
