What she said....

Janet Mock and Laverne Cox are very
cross with you, Piers Morgan....
Janet Mock, who is promoting her new book, Redefining Realness, was interviewed by Piers Morgan on CNN the other night. Morgan, like Katie Couric before him, took the laziest possible route by going right to the most sensationalist and salacious part of her story, and frankly, missing the point of her book entirely by misgendering her, intentionally or not, and having a classic "she wuz a he!" crawl below her.

Ms. Mock is no stranger to media and wide audiences: she was an editor for People Magazine. She's mounted a savvy Twitter campaign that now has Morgan howling in defense as though he was somehow the victim, here.As my friend Helen Boyd has said "...she just keeps bringing it"

Sucks to be misunderstood, huh, Bro? Janet Mock is simultaneously 100% poise and grace and 200% fierce. Keep it up, sistah!!
