khuwajasira Burned mercilessly

Karachi: 4 January 2022: The mandatory sexualization of khwajasiras, transgender women, and effeminate men in Pakistan DEMANDS that a man's sexual advances at you MUST be honoured.
If they aren't, you're subject to violence. The most extreme being burning and murder, the very least being him going around telling people he's had you.
I learnt this at the age of 11. In a school. Some of my Shumaila Bhatti was based on this fact. The men who go around telling people they've had you are usually the ones you've turned down. And if you're unlucky, they don't stop there. They defile your face and kill you.
This is death.
