1. “Laverne Cox Talks to Time About the Transgender Movement.” The Orange Is the New Black star on politics, happiness and why genitalia isn’t destiny.
“There’s not just one trans story. There’s not just one trans experience. And I think what they need to understand is that not everybody who is born feels that their gender identity is in alignment with what they’re assigned at birth, based on their genitalia. If someone needs to express their gender in a way that is different, that is okay, and they should not be denied healthcare. They should not be bullied. They don’t deserve to be victims of violence. ... That’s what people need to understand, that it’s okay and that if you are uncomfortable with it, then you need to look at yourself.”
