Her parents got into a horrible car crash. Her father died, and her mother lost an arm.

There was a trial. At the trial, one of the lawyers outed her as a trans woman.

The town she lived in was... somewhat less than supportive. They threatened her and her mother with death threats.

Yesterday, at 2pm, she was kidnapped, gang raped, bludgeoned with a sledgehammer, and buried alive.

She managed to crawl out of her grave and find help, but died in ICU last night.

All this for being transgender...

Details are scant, but here's where I heard about this.

I'm hoping this turns out to be a fake story, but honestly... I wouldn't be surprised at all if this were real.

EDIT: This looks like a hoax. Read here

Found over on [livejournal.com profile] mantic_angel's blog.

This is insane

According to this article, a young woman age 15 has been charged with has been charged with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography and dissemination of child pornography for posting nude photographs of a child to the internet.

The subject of those photographs? Herself

And you want to know the really crazy part?

This isn't the first time this has taken place, except that one of the other times, the girl was tried as an adult.

A cursory glance at this website produces a host of similar issues.

Have you heard about the lady that died trying to win a Wii? Here's the story.

This radio excerpt , though, is really disturbing. This is a recording of the broadcast mere hours before she died. She's the one they talk to at the end, and she's saying that she's feeling light headed.

I'm pretty sure that this is a picture of the woman and her family. This whole thing is really really sad. She leaves behind three kids and a husband.

The title alone should be enough to make you laugh.
Here's the article..
Apparently, the reason there's so many homosexuals now is because there's so much soy in products.

Viral Fossil Brought back to life - Sheesh... Don't they realize that this is a classic science fiction plot that results in the destruction of all humanity? *rolls eyes* These people really need to watch more TV.

Also, this picture looks like some sort of movie poster for "Mr. Evil and his supermodel assistant" or something. It's for this news story, but I don't really get who the woman is in the picture. Of course, I didn't RTFA, but still...
