US Opts Out On UN Vote to Condemn Extrajudicial Executions of LGBT People

The US envoy to the UN did not return my calls on the 19th of November after I explained to her assistant I needed to know how the US was going to vote on Resolution 17/19  on the 20th.

That’s because she knew my country wasn’t going to vote  to affirm the worlds commitment against murders like the HUNDREDS of trans people we mourn worldwide every year on the 20th, the TDOR.

The United States abstention is as good as them saying fuck you tranny on our TDOR. We don’t care enough about you to at least protest your murders. The Statement by Ambassador Susan E. Rice on the Draft Resolution on Extrajudicial, Summary, and Arbitrary Executions would at first glance make it appear the US voted in favor of holding the world accountable, but we did not. The offical State Department statement is just blowing smoke up our collective asses. 

The fact remains our  country did not stand up for trans people at the UN on the TDOR.

Well, the “General Assembly Will Condemn in Strongest Terms Use of Extrajudicial Executions of gay and transgender people” in spite of the United States in reality, not caring.

By abstaining we were in the company of the most murderous countrys in the world for LGBT people. China. Russia. Syria. Lybia. Only Iran voted no. We are now in company with countrys that have no reported transgender murders, not becuse there are no transgender or gay people as they claim, but becuse when we are murdered NO ONE CARES and even if someone did they would not dare report it.

Obama Is this why I voted for you? You know you are on notice now. You better do better than that and yes, I am holding you personally responsible to insure our lives don’t become a political hockey puck at the UN or the CIA.
