“Couric explained that she just wants to be educated and that a lot of people are curious because they’re “not familiar with transgenders.” She told Cox that Carrera had “recoiled” when asked about surgery and said that cis people are preoccupied with “the genitalia question.” Couric wondered if Cox felt the same way about that question and about cis people’s attitudes towards trans women. As soon as Cox started telling her that, yes, she keeps her private parts private and that cis people do have an obsession with trans women’s genitalia, she really started picking up steam. Cox said that the preoccupation with genitalia and transition objectifies trans women and distracts us from the real issues.”

    I really hate how trans appropriate feminist discourse that we are more than our reproductive organs! It is completely different when their whole thing is about invading women spaces with a fully in tact, ready to rape penis. Trannies are the ones going on bout how cosmetic surgery is ‘medically necessary’ so its them that bring it up and brought it to the there front. She has every right to ask. Funny how the media would not care when a male talk show host asks a woman similar question.

      Thank you. Of course women should always be in charge of discussions of what it is like to be a woman. Anything else is madness.

        The trans lobby is mad, yes. Its so insulting. Its not okay for white people to pretend to be native and the lib media gets that but when men pretend to be women using the most offensive stereotypes possible its not even questioned which just shows us liberals do not consider women human.
