What a complaint

Missouri Executes Amber McLaughlin, First Trans Woman Ever Put to Death in the U.S.

OK, well, whatever. But this is a glorious complaint:

The Supreme Court chose not hear her claims, and Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R) told the AP that he would not stop the execution. His office released a statement using McLaughlin’s deadname on Tuesday morning.

  1. Why do I find his choice of “Amber” so bathetic? Why not Michelle Mclaughlin? More euphonious.

    Maybe he chose Amber because he could spell it.

  2. Bloke in the Fourth Reich

    The article refers to the reinstatement of capitol punishment.

    When do we get started?

  3. Dennis, A Vast Reservior of Toxic Masculinity

    From the tone of the Jezebel article, it appears that doing guy things like stalking, raping and then murdering an ex-friend really isn’t that bad if you decide to transition afterwards.

    This is the state of feminism these days.

  4. “Missouri Executes Murderer” would be more accurate. It’s a form of selfishness to search for other elements, especially those involving pet causes, to make the story more relevant for the journalist.

  5. They mean Mclaughlin’s legal name. It doesn’t matter what you are know by to your friends and strangers, the legal system processes you with your legal name, whatever it is.

  6. I’m guessing that Mclaughlin did the rape and murder bit before deciding to be Trans? It seems fair enough that the execution used the name “Scott” which is what Mclaughlin was using when the crime was committed. It would be a little worrisome to execute a woman called Amber for the crimes committed by a man called Scott.

    Sheesh …. that was hard to write pronoun free.

  7. Apparently CNN are going with the angle that female rapist / murderers are uncommon, so this individual is a bit of an outlier.
