- A 17-month-old infant assigned male at birth, Roy Antonio Jones III, was killed by his mother’s boyfriend for acting too much like a girl. Pedro Jones was babysitting Roy Jones (no biological relation) at the Shinecock Indian Reservation. When the less-than-two-year-old baby failed to fulfill his caretaker’s idea of what a less-than-two-year-old boy should act like, Pedro Jones began beating the infant with closed fists all over his body and then choking him. The child went into cardiac arrest, and later died at the hospital.
Pedro Jones has pled not guilty. Pedro admitted: “I was trying to make him act like a boy instead of a little girl…I never struck that kid that hard before. A one-time mistake and I am going to do 20 years…”
- In Durham, North Carolina in September 2011, Peter Lucas Moses (27) stood trial facing two counts of first-degree murder. Moses was the leader of a religious cult who shot the four-year-old boy named Jadon Higganbothan dead for what he called his ‘gay behavior.’ Moses also shot and killed Antoinetta Yvonne McKoy (28) because she wanted to leave the cult.
I keep reblogging this and wanting to spread this awareness because these boys could be my sons and I’d be damned. If you don’t see the problem with this, you need to do some soul searching.
