On April 22, a trans woman named Maddie reported to the police that she was a victim of transphobic abuse by a woman whose apparent intention was to drive her out of her home. The police did investigate and last week, handed the woman a warning.
The source for this was woefully short in details. However, the outcome was positive for the trans woman. Although the abuser only received a warning, we’re seeing a subtle trend of trans people reporting their abusive neighbors and getting positive results.
