    Based on the comments made by the sister, it would appear that Victor is a transgender woman (MTF) who is likely very early in her transition. This seems like pretty sloppy journalism by CBS LA – which I guess shouldn’t be too terribly surprising. If Victor is a trans woman, then the comments by the sister shows serious ignorance on her part.

    Pay close attention, young men. This is what happens to you when you embrace the culture of effeminacy…..that is, if you don’t commit suicide or overdose first…..

    Whether you are in LA or NY….or Nebraska or Alabama…..or London or Tokyo or Buenos Aires

    It’s your choice–make sure you make the right one.

    Now compare this poor guys face to the face of the dude attacked by the teenagers in Prospect Park. Yeah, exactly.

    Brutal. CTV cameras I hope. Someone will hopefully rat them out.

    @ “If Victor is a trans woman, then the comments by the sister shows serious ignorance on her part.”

    What the are you talking about? Many Transfolk call themselves Gay when they are young. They don’t know the term “Transgender”. Bigots call them f.ggots, and so they think of themselves as Gay.

    Boy, maybe I should not read the comments today.

    What The HELL are you implying, TrollBastard?

    Your post is complete incomprehensible.

    Why not take out your secret decoder ring, give it a spin, then repost.

    Because your sentance makes ZERO sense…and a lot of us here don’t understand TrollSpeak.

    Unless, of course, you’re a Moron. Then anything can makes sense.

    As for you, ‘Rick';

    The ‘culture’ of effeminancy’ that obviously panics and SCARES YOU TO DEATH, has been around long before you were born. And it will be long AFTER you are dead. Which hopefully is sooner than later. Because YOU are a waste of air.

    For the rest of us, this culture of ‘effeminacy’ poses NO threat in anyway.

    Diego’s sister sounds like a real gem. my heart goes out to them. this is what a culture of ignorance and prejudice does – it turns insecure cowards into violent thugs. people hate what stirs up insecurity in themselves.

    kudos to all who continue to defy this culture of ignorance by living out loud. change comes from visibility and a refusal to hide away in the shadows.

    The guy ‘gay bashed’ by teenagers in Brooklyn DIDN’T HAVE A SCRATCH ON HIS FACE. That’s what I’m saying.

    This gentleman was obviously in a fight, and on the receiving end of a serious beating.

    So calm the F down. I didn’t say ANYTHING troll-like. I said NOTHING offensive. I said NOTHING ‘Homophobic’ or ‘Transphobic’. No one died and made you king. Try and learn to deal with diversity in your world, including diversity in ideas and thought. I understand for some people on here that’s never going to happen, they’re pernicious shills and trolls, and will be to the day they die.

    @Raymond Miller,

    Do you have ANY other talking point, mantra, other than claiming anyone who hates gays is insecure in their own sexuality and probably gay themselves? Or that they are trying to please their ‘homophobic’ father? What is it about people’s father’s that so fascinates you? Are you projecting your own life experiences?

    There are many reasons why people hate others, and many reasons why people assault others. And I know you’re dying to make a post about my dad being gang raped by black men and saying how much he enjoyed the experience before he died, but try and control your innate sadism and viciousness.

  9. David Hearne says

    JSH – Did it occur to you that Victor or his sister might choose to not CONFORM to YOUR expectations?

    Your obsession with pronouns is clearly a sign that this is a trivial matter. If it isn’t, then stop getting your girdle in a roll over the trivial.

  10. David Hearne says

    The bottom line here is that society should not tolerate or promote violence against anyone. Even if Victor was dressed as Leslie Ann Warren and swinging from a light post yelling “Hey baby! You dating?” at passing trucks it’s not an excuse for some street thug to attack him, or for everyone else to stand by and watch it.

  11. Derrick from Philly says

    Oh, see– either I’m still drunk or the world has turned upside down. David Hearne is actually making sense today.

    I’m outta’ here, Miss Thing.

  12. David Hearne says

    Derrick, I think that at my advanced age (just turned 55) it would be courteous to address me as “Mrs. Thing” (or I actually prefer Ting) as one might reasonably expect me to be or have been married.

  13. Derrick from Philly says


    how the hell could you be living in retirement in Florida at age 55?

    Rick, why did you invent David Hearne? I’m curious why some Towleroad regulars have to invent new posters to comment. There’s got to be a reason…other than insanity.

  14. MateoM says

    Derrick, it’s because Rick knows his crazy opinions will be dismissed/ignored instantly unless he creates other personas to agree with/parrot his points. He’s trying to legitimize his opinions by creating false, agreeable participants.

  15. nefter says

    Rick you are a vile disgusting pig and this effeminate male would wipe the floor with you face given the opportunity.
    I really hope that someone that is monitoring this sight sees this and deletes it so they will know that I WILL NEVER READ THIS BLOG AGAIN!! The hate coming from rick at rat on a daily basis is simply not worth it!!!!

  16. ratbastard says


    No problem. As soon as Mr. Miller stops his crap. He knows what he does. I mention him and what he’s said MANY time in the past so people are aware of what he is. He’s a hit and run troll. I want to make sure TR readers know he actually has said on multiple occasions my dad and mom were gang raped and enjoyed it. If he simply trolled me personally, I would let it slide. He didn’t. He went and goes WAY beyond that.

    As for hate, what ‘hate’?

  17. GregV says

    I agree that CBS’ sloppy wording makes the story confusing.
    If “he” (sic) identifies as female and dates females then SHE is a gay transWOMAN.
    If “he” was born with a vagina but identifies as male and dates females, then he is a straight transMAN.
    But a trans MAN’s sister would probably not be celebrating that he still looks like a woman unless she were unaccepting and unsympathetic to trans people.

  18. Derrick from Philly says

    Look, for many of us Gay and Transgender are not always separate. Many Transwomen and Transmen call themselves Gay. For instance, google “B. Scott” (a youtube personality). He is very beautiful, wears make-up, and could easily pass for a woman. BUT HE IS GAY AND HE LIKES MEN!!!!
    So he is Gay and Transgender.

    Oh, what the hell.

  19. GregV says

    @Derrick in Philly: While B.Scott’s effeminate appearance makes him LOOK transgendered to you (and me), he says he is gay, attracted to men, and NOT transgendered:

    “Transgenders feel that their soul is a woman, like they were born in the wrong body in terms of their gender. I don’t feel that way. I know that I’m a man; I’m happy to be in my body,”
    – quote from B. Scott

  20. David Hearne says

    Derrick – Rick didn’t invent me. I can be retired in Florida at 55 because I bought a retirement plan from a major corporation while I was selling real estate in DC 30 years ago. That and houses here were cheap so instead of buying one really nice house, I bought three less expensive ones, two of which are rentals. I also worked two jobs most of my adult life, selling real estate and working in nightclubs. I figured as long as I was going to be there anyway, I might as well be making money. Yes, if I could have been a go-go dancer I probably would have been.
