Laverne Cox Smoulders

Laverne Cox is the only reason I watch Orange is the New Black and she smoulders on the cover of Time magazine.  I like the alliteration of the title - The Transgender Tipping Point - but I would broaden it. 

"Gender" is the next civil rights frontier.  Misogyny and transphobia are opposite sides of the same coin.  They stem from the belief that the feminine is second to the masculine. 

It's time for equal work for equal pay, equal access to housing and health care (including contraception, abortion & hormones), and equal representation in government.

 I just knew there would be a fawning tribute to Laverne Cox on here. There's a super takeoff on this magazine cover going the rounds with CRIME replacing TIME regarding Cox's plea for the child rapist/murderer who says he's transgender. Did you like Laverne when he was humiliating women by teaching us how to be women on some stupid reality show? That's bad enough but taping pleas for the criminally insane really takes the cake. Misogyny is not the other side of transphobia. Trans = misogyny.
