Okay, regardless of what his political beliefs were or weren’t (I’m a communist, if I had read somewhere reliable that he was anti fascist, I would’ve mentioned it if I thought it appropriate), Brandon WAS a victim? By definition. He did not “die to protect” a community, he was murdered, senselessly. That’s why it’s tragic: he was barely an adult, and he was murdered because two men found out he was transgender. And I’m responding because you seem to be a legitimate person: what the fuck did you hope to gain by commenting this??
