Can We please shift the national conversation about trans people back to Laverne Cox and how cool she is?
Or how about Candis Cayne? She is also very cool.
Seriously you guys, I am avoiding all of the coverage of Chelsea Manning, because it's just such an awful context to be having these conversations. You've already got emotions running high and then you introduce a subject that people don't know a lot about/feel uneasy about and it's just a sad shit show. What really gets lost in this conversation is that trans people are normal people in that we are capable of/participate in a wide range of behaviors. Some trans people are are lawyers and doctors, some work on the streets, some are chill and some are shitty, some go to jail for murder and some go to jail for leaking nation secrets. Can we stop losing our minds now? Please?
