Who? Terry? An Empath?


When Terry loudly exaggerated that phony Borinquen accent she never was obtusely obnoxious. When she was collared, she took it like a gentleman. With all due respect, he was a she until the cuffs went on. Transexuals or Transvestites couldn’t be arrested as their self identified gender. That was the policy in the 1980’s.

I witnessed the debate Terry had with Dianna (a Dianna Ross lookalike Transvestite.) Terry convincingly put forth her proposition that Hispanics made better Transvestites than whites or blacks. It was an entertaining and civil debate among transvestite hookers until the first punch was thrown. We broke it up. No harm, no collars. Just another late night on West Street in Greenwich Village back in 1985.

This now 2017 trendy Greenwich Village sector of the NYPD’s Sixth Precient was once a light industrial/loft area with illegal S & M and alternative sexual bars opening at night when the area was isolated. It was also known as a transvestite stroll. After dark it was ripe with Bozos from New Jersey, slowly cruising the narrow cobblestone streets seeking oral sex. Other assorted assholes were looking to beat up homosexuals, transvestites or transexuals. They were typical Tunnel people (from New Jersey or the outer boroughs of NYC.)

Scientific fact: One loses a couple points off their IQ for every year they live in New Jersey.

We tried to stop these assholes from hurting street people. But in this case, most homosexuals/transvestites/transexuals mistrusted cops as a part of a society that scorned them. We pulled over assholes looking to beat up street people and “escorted” them out of the neighborhood. If they had a really bad attitude, they’d leave with something to remind them of the encounter. Not just a traffic summons, but a non-monetarily based organically delivered painful reminder.

*******

It was a hot summer night in 1985 on the midnight tour. The pickings were slim for the girls.
