Transgender activist Laverne Cox poses a dilemma for those who preside over the style book at newspapers. The actress was called an actor in today's WDT but was also referred to as "her" and "Ms. Cox".
The actress was born a male, one of identical twin boys. She went through gender identity issues in childhood leading to an attempted suicide and now is a transgender activist.
At least in NC, you'd have to make sure the gender references in print correspond to the birth certificate.
I have no problem calling Ms. Cox a she as the lass seems sincere in her identity.
But did JCC let her use the lady's room ?
