Sanesha Stewart was stabbed to death this Saturday.
Of course the media coverage is fantastic.
Oh wait. Wait no it's not. Actually it's fucking horrible.
I mean why wouldn't it be? She's a young trans sex worker of color (or alleged sex worker, since it's entirely possible that they're just assuming she's a sex worker because she's trans, of color, and the first article states "neighbors said they didn't know if Stewart was turning tricks but they had noticed frequent male visitors to her home" and, edit for a more recent article, one of her neighbors "denied Stewart was a prostitute").
So naturally it's her fault; after all, she was a "man who dressed like a woman" who "was known to wear stylish, provocative outfits with towering high heels," "was a ... flirty presence," and "had surgery to 'give him [sic] larger breasts and other female characteristics'" even though "it was clear Stewart was still a man." I mean she was just asking for it, amirite?
I mean "the suspect was apparently surprised by the victim's true sex" so it's perfectly acceptable to expect that he would respond the appropriate way and stab her to death in a fit of rage.
Edit: He knew her for months. In all likelihood, he knew she was trans and was hoping to get off using the tranny panic defense anyway. Just because he could.
