Pose actress Indya Moore has gone viral after tweeting that transgender women’s penises don’t make them less women. They were born women and they were born with penises, so penises are a part of their femininity, not an obstacle to it. “Reproductive parts and chromosomes define the biology of your gender, not your gender,” she said, noting that penises of transgender women are biologically female. Moore, who came out as poly last year, backed up her point by posting an explanation by Grace Pokela, a biology teacher from New York whose explanation of gender went viral in 2017. She stated that gender is naturally a spectrum, so using anatomic differences as an excuse for violence against transgender people made no sense. And the trans actress, who plays Angel Evangelista on Pose, used Pokela’s message to tell her followers: “The definition of biological literally has nothing to do with gender. It just defines who we’re related to.” She tweeted: “cis people characterizing gender variant traits as abnormal is synonymous to white people saying melanin is abnormal or melanated people saying that the absence of melanin is abnormal. Your effort to delegitimize the biology of trans people is inherently narcissistic.”
