The transgender OITNB star is a real woman and we have no doubt about it. But there are haters who still oppose the trans women’s right to femininity. And Laverne Cox sends a massage to them. “Gender is really, really complicated, and everyone experiences their gender in a different way, and gender is different based on the culture,” Cox said. To her denying that trans women are real women is discrimination against trans community.“That is a way that folks use to deny us access and deny us healthcare and jobs, and it’s a reason that people perpetrate violence against us,” she added. Yes, violence against trans community is unfortunately a rife problem in the USA. 11 transgender women of color were killed in the country this year. Cox also called Trump “a president who ran on an overtly white supremacist, xenophobic platform” whose name is even unpleasant for her to pronounce. .
