Misgendering in trans case criticized

Posted By Administration, Thursday, December 10, 2015

Advocates for the transgender community are criticizing a San Francisco attorney's misgendering of a trans woman who was allegedly assaulted in a recent hate crime.

Deputy Public Defender Kwixuan Maloof, who's representing Dewayne Kemp, one of the people accused of attacking Samantha Hulsey in November, repeatedly referred to Hulsey as a man and used male pronouns for her during the arraignment in the case.

In an interview this week, Hulsey, 25, said the comments made her "really offended and a bit upset. I think that from a legal point of view, him saying that about me is completely pointless, because regardless of whether I am [transgender] or not," Kemp "still committed a hate crime against me based on what he perceived to be my gender or sexuality."
