One Last Word about L&O

I finished watching the SVU episode "Transitions" a few minutes ago. At the end of the show, the card came up proclaiming "The preceding story is fictional. No actual persons were depicted." Fiction or not, the story hit all my buttons. When "Jackie Blaine" told her story of being attacked, it tore my heart out. Trans people are attacked all the time, just for being who they are, and all the whys don't make it any easier to understand.

  1. Perhaps that's why people keep searching for this show and reading that post...for some reason it's still the most read post of mine over a week later.

    I'm glad the show was televised. Some people hated it. To me it allowed us to tell a part of our story, even in the silliness that is prime tiime TV. I'm glad it wasn't Springer.
