Several of you have asked if I have heard or read any further information on the young pagan transgender woman in Akron, Ohio who was slain from her "demon's" by her father. The reposts I have read still say (more or less) "Bri" was migrating back towards Brian during the last year.
My only "guess" is Bri leaned towards being gender fluid and was searching for gender roots. Plus, as some of you may know, my partner Liz is a Wiccan (closely related to Pagan's in beliefs). So, I know enough about it to be dangerous. It's quite possible (like me) Bri was exploring a spirituality which is largely feminine based and similar to the ancient Native American cultures, acceptors of a Two Spirited person.
Now, since I'm guessing, Bri's hometown of Akron, Ohio is actually clear across the state from me and is yet another decimated old rust belt industrial city. I would think it would not be the ideal environment for a person with a crazy father- if you are searching for a gender identity.
Of course I have my biases and ideas-but that's all they are-unfortunately.
