Laverne Cox is the most visible trans person of color in the world and she has helped millions of people to learn about trans people and the discrimination they face. I think Laverne Cox is one of the most important and influential people in the world and should’ve been included in the TIME 100.
"Trans person" fuck off john green
Is she not a trans person? Cause last I checked she was?
she is a trans woman. the fact that she is a trans woman is so important and the fact that he conveniently said “trans person” was just a clever way of saying “i dont see you as x, i see you as a person”
plus when someone specifically asks to be referred to with female-gendered terms and you use a gender-neutral term it’s a specific form of misgendering known as degendering
but there are trans women and trans men. if laverne cox is the most visible of all of them, then she is the most visible trans person. PERSON. because being trans does not make you un-people.
