Stigmatized Gender: Today’s Taboo against Being Who You Are

In the documentary, Bully, by filmmaker Lee Hirsch, a high school girl named Kelby tells of her experience as a masculine female in a town where an overt prohibition —taboo— exists against her kind. Among the least of her sufferings was the day she came to class late, took a seat among the other students, who, one by one, got up and moved to other seats, leaving her with a circle of empty seats around her.

"bigot shaming"

I managed to catch a little of Thom's show today (June 1), and he mentioned "publically shaming the bigots" when talking about anti-Muslim discrimination.
