    “In reality, very few—if any—of that year’s victims could be said to have succumbed to outright bigotry of the kind advocates rightly decry. Rather, most seemed to have died in gang-land disputes, domestic- and intimate-partner disputes, drug disputes, and other such violence that sadly plagues low-income minority communities across the land, especially in inner cities.”

    I don’t think this is cynical enough. Why are so many dead urban transgender people “low income minorities”?

    “But advocates dishonor these victims when they whitewash the realities in which they were embedded and the true causes of their deaths, all to sell a political cause.”

    We’ll see. The same thing gets said about the Black Lives Matter movement, for a slightly different reason.
