Transgender actress Laverne Cox did a strategic nude photo shoot for Allure magazine because she is a hero for embracing her true gender identity. According to the trans community there is zero difference between a trans woman and a regular woman, meaning a woman who was born a woman who calls herself a woman and ascribes to certain gender roles such as being uninformed about the pay gap. Except for the enormous hands and feet. Cox understands the need to embrace different standards of beauty:
“I’m a black transgender woman. I felt this could be really powerful for communities that I represent. Black women are not often told that we’re beautiful unless we align with certain standards. Trans women certainly are not told we’re beautiful.”
This is purely a numbers game. A small minority of dudes are into trannies. Those are the ones who will be telling you you’re beautiful at the truck stop. The rest of society will probably be ignoring you. I’m not ready to start jerking off to gay midget porn in the name of equality. I’m sure my grandkids will spit on me at the dinner table. If she put on a Terrell Owens jersey, I could probably make this happen. His grip always kind of turned me on. That might be sexist. I don’t know anymore.
