Laverne Cox Writes Stirring Essay for INSTYLE In Wake Of SCOTUS's Colossal Gavin Grimm Blunder Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-03-06 at 6.09.15 PM(Video still via Instagram @lavernecox)

The Supreme Court today declined to hear the case of Gavin Grimm, a trans teen fighting for bathroom rights, and in the process vacated a lower court's ruling in his favor. SCOTUS cited Donald Trump's policy, which was to scotch the positive guidelines put forth by President Obama in 2016.

Now, actor and trans activist Laverne Cox is laying it on the line in InStyle, explaining bluntly, “These bathroom laws aren't really about bathrooms.”

From her piece:

... don’t be fooled: These bathroom laws aren’t really about bathrooms. When the current administration rescinded the guidelines for how transgender students should be treated in schools, they made it all about bathrooms. But the Obama-era guidelines also included pronoun and name preferences for these young people as well. These are important components of how trans kids should be treated in school, but all that is lost when we sensationalize this issue. It’s not about bathrooms. It’s about the humanity of trans people, about us having the right to exist in a public space.

Damn right. And Trump and his insane minions are fighting to remove that right. The same principle applies to all anti-gay laws It's about making it harder for us to live.
