THIS IS A MUST WATCH.
As we’re sure you know, Donald Trump rolled back federal protections for transgender children this week that were previously in place under Barack Obama‘s administration — choosing instead to let states decide what rights trans students should have.
In an amazing response, Queen Laverne Cox took an anti-trans activist took to school on live TV while discussing what the transphobic bathroom legislation is REALLY about — and the dude was left completely speechless!!!
Here’s what happened.
On last night’s episode of MSNBC‘s Hardball, the OITNB star and the Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, Mara Keisling, appeared alongside Travis Weber, director of the Center for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council, to debate both sides of the issue at hand.
Miz Cox broke it down for everyone when she explained that the bathroom bill isn’t about bathrooms or “privacy” at all… it’s about trans people’s right to exist in public space:
“When trans people can’t access public bathrooms we can’t go to school effectively, go to work effectively, access health-care facilities ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it’s about us existing in public space. And those who oppose trans people having access to the facilities consistent with how we identify know that all the things they claim don’t actually happen. It’s really about us not existing ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ about erasing trans people.”
When the show’s host Chris Matthews straight up asked Weber if he thinks Laverne should use the men’s room… Weber literally had NO ANSWER.
That’s what happens when you’re completely full of shit… you can’t back up your own claims!
After the right-winger tried to use a hypothetical example of women feeling “harmed” by a trans person in their restroom, Laverne went on to argue:
“I think it’s important that when we have conversations about transgender people, we do not reduce us to body parts.”
You MUST watch the full debate, if you can even call it that, (below)!!!
What a fierce and inspiring voice! Laverne for POTUS!
