THE FACTS ABOUT SYNTHIA-CHINA BLAST & LAVERNE COX

defendtranswomen:

  • SYNTHIA-CHINA BLAST DID NOT RAPE EBONY NICOLE WILLIAMS. There was never any evidence to support the allegation that she did, and she was acquitted after witnesses discredited the claim.

  • SYNTHIA-CHINA BLAST DID NOT MURDER EBONY NICOLE WILLIAMS. She had no role in the murder whatsoever - she was called upon to clean up the scene, and could have faced serious repercussions had she not done it.
  • SYNTHIA-CHINA BLAST IS A LIFELONG SURVIVOR OF INCARCERATION. She was first incarcerated when she was 16 years old, and has endured 22 years of sexual abuse, solitary confinement, constant harassment by law enforcement, and deprivation of needed care. By submitting her statement to the Sylvia Rivera Law Project for Laverne to read, she put herself at tremendous personal risk for the sake of speaking out against the violences committed against her and other trans women of color in & out of prison.

Given these facts, what TWEFs are doing here should be obvious. Laverne Cox, and the woman she is giving voice to, are trans women of color taking a stand against the mass incarceration and institutional abuse of trans women of color. TWEFs, due to their dogged loyalty to transmisogyny and white supremacy, are deeply invested in the mass incarceration and institutional abuse of trans women of color. To the end of derailing resistance, they are callously leveraging (a) the death of a young girl, & (b) the discourse that trans women of color are physically and sexually violent, against both Laverne and Synthia. It’s shameful, evil, transparent shit.

Signal boost the shit out of this post, make your own posts to help spread the word, and do your part to actively rebuff & discredit the violent claims being made against these two women. DON’T BE COMPLICIT IN THIS CAMPAIGN AGAINST LAVERNE & SYNTHIA!!!

so, update: the thing everyone is coming at laverne for is for having read a letter from synthia, a trans woman convicted on a bunk rape charge

synthia was a member of the latin kings, and was sent to clean an apartment to help get rid of a body

she went there in a rush, and was still wearing a skirt while getting rid of the body

someone witneessed it happening, and saw synthia in a skirt, and decided to add on to her story, that synthia wasnt just cleaning the apartment, but had also raped and killed the girl

accusations of rape, and especially of pedophilia/being unsafe to be around children r EXTRMELY common accusations at trans women of color simply for existing

the witness changed their story a few times

synthias now in jail for a lot longer than she would be on just the original charge

and laverne is now being targeted for having read a letter from synthia

this is a very, very easy way for twefs to attack trans women of color, because they KNOW that most ppl wont bother to fact check, most ppl wont bother to read up on it, most ppl who nominally support trans women will hear that and go “oh no, well, just goes to show u cant trust celebrities”

ppl like to make out like laverne landing a role on a tv show means that trans women of color r somehow no longer oppressed as a class, but the fact is that laverne was getting shit for her role from the start, and ppl will take any excuse they can to point to her, and to point at synthia, gladly lap up bogus accusations and go “SEE! TRANS WOMEN OF COLOR R DANGEROUS PPL!”

dont fall for this shit

do research

fact check

spread the truth

dont let a smear campaign against trans women of color go unchecked


People are angry about the rape and murder of a 13 year old girl and you’re dismissing everything as just a smear campaign?  Wtf is wrong with you?  What you said doesn’t even sound right and makes no sense.  Just happened to be in a gang, just happened to be sent for clean up to the apartment where a murder had taken place, just happened to be wearing a skirt, the witness just happened to catch that person there, just happened to be a false accusation of rape (which we now know is statistically UNTRUE, but hey since it’s a trans woman clearly every rape accusation is false to slander poor trans women), the witness just happened to add details and change the story, there’s a whole lot of ‘just happenings’ in your post. 

im not sure where ur getting all this “just happened” shit cuz thats not in the post at all but okay

ppl should be mad abt the murder of a 13 yr old girl

ppl shouldnt be directing that anger at someone falsely accused of the murder, and falsely accused of rape, by a witness that changed their story several times, a story w no evidence to support it, a story that was thrown out by the court

and btw, looking at rape statistics as a whole, the vast majority of rape accusations r true

false rape accusations dont rly happen very often… ykno, unless ur using proper controls for variables, in which black men r routinely falsely accused of rape of white women, coming from a long history of accusing them of that as justification for lynching, and trans women r often falsely accused of rape as a justification for violence, and due to the automatic sexualization of trans womens existence: trans women r seen by society as sexual violence incarnate simply for being, so its no fucking surprise that someone at the intersection of being a trans woman of color would have that levelled against her

REBELS: LAVERNE COX - NOMINATED BY NATASHA LYONNE

"Laverne stands up for what she believes in and does so with grace and humility,” says her costar and nominator Natasha Lyonne. “She is one of a kind: a game changer and a maverick who not only expands closed minds but educates them. She is the living embodiment of what she believes in, and the inevitable fallout of that is she inspires others to tell their own truths.”
