1. They didn't know????

So for a group of masked men to attack a woman with pepper spray is a prank ?!? Shame Shame Shame! What have the young men of this country come to?!? I hope that all of their family and friends are ostracizing them for this action.
2. What is the gender of the victim?
Orly ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.04.14)
When you write "transgender man" I think of a dude in a dress. When you write "transgender woman" I still think of a woman in a dress. Was it a man dressed as a woman or a woman dressed as a man? The article repeatedly refers to the victim as a woman, implying that this is a woman who is "transgender." But, as stated above, all signs lead me to think this was a guy, thought medically he should be refered to by his anatomical gender. So, the pranksters claim they did not know? They just wanted to pepper-spray this woman .... or this man .... for the heck of it?
3. The gender doesn't matter
Miki ,   Tel Aviv   (01.04.14)
It was an attack on a human being, and the creatures who did it should be punished.
4. All prostitutes are targets for brutality
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (01.04.14)
the preps need no excuse they see 'prostitutes' as targets for their warped wrath. Even "Johns" behave this way. Not easy work, it isn't the mattress, it's the psychos.

A trans woman (sometimes trans-woman or transwoman) is a male-to-female (MTF) transgender person with a female gender identity. The label of transgender woman is not...
6. #2, trasgender means someone who has actually changed gender
Ibraim Sued ,   Rio de Janeiro   (01.04.14)
so when it's said 'woman' that's her new and actual gender. I had the same doubt as you, but it would be a cross-dresser, a transvestite, nor a transgender if we would call her by her original (male) gender, though in Wikipedia cross-dressers are cassified as a kind of transgender too.
7. idiots
Mari   (01.04.14)
the suspects claimed they were pulling a prank and did not know the woman was transgender. and that's an excuse? Is is ok to attack a woman then?
8. Nir Katz. Murdered because of a pedophile
Shadoil ,   Jerusalem   (01.04.14)
Who never stood the test of justice because he is a well connected LGTB activist and it would be politically INCORRECT to hold him to the standard that others need to! HIPOCRITICAL PRESS AND GAY COMMUNITY!
9. "high" jewish values.
10. #1 I share your sentiment
Vera   (01.04.14)
I am absolutely shocked at the suspects excuse- so it would have been ok to attack a woman? What goes through these morons mind? It does not matter if it was a man, woman or child- a gang of 'men' attacking ONE person? Bullies have no place in civilized society- send those Neanderthals to a boot camp.
11. Did he take out mortgage on his new gender? Is that an ad?

17. @4 once you describe subject of business of this lady
Miron ,   USA   (01.06.14)
we can take next step to discuss what brutality is and how to compete for the market in her segment. I mean discovering cures for cancer as well as saving children from life on the streets in her line of business is a second nature... ( who knows, might it be 2000 years later doctors will discover sex is actually a potent cure from dreaded disease? Nobody really knows enough to say it either way yes or no. But I don't think even most advanced science in even million years can help with foster children if prostitutes will be our role models )
