My heteronormative patriarch is guilty. Not me.

I reject your heteronormative patriarchal definition of murder!

Dear RealDanSavage,

I’m a transgender woman being charged with the murders of several prostitutes more than 20 years ago in Spokane. I didn’t do it. Doug did. Please help me.

Donna Not Doug

Dear Donna,

You are trans*woman! I hear you roar! Pay no attention to intolerant, homophobic, racist, misogynist a-holes with an iPhone and a tenth grade education who can’t see beyond the rigid social constructions of masculinity and femininity where people exist in binary pairs.

If you were Doug back then, and you’re Donna today, then Donna didn’t do it. You were Dominant then, and now you’re Submissive. You were the Penetrator, and now you’re being Penetrated.

Seriously, though, you should lube up for some serious Penetrating, because you’re probably headed for the Big House where The Heteronormative Patriarchy is large and in charge.

Unless you follow my lawyer’s advice and plead not guilty by reason of insanity.
