(In before someone makes a joke about a male-to-female transgender person having the last name “Cox”.)
For the record, Seth does have a gender since he identifies as male, but, yes, “he” is also both sexless and asexual, what with being a robot…or something who clearly lacks both genitals and any interest in sex.
Anyway, good for this person, I guess. I don’t know. I guess Time is one of those big magazines that people pay attention to. I couldn’t personally care less about who is on the cover of it, especially since they’ve had Hitler and other questionable people on there even before it was obvious that the quality of the magazine was flagging.
thinks back to that year when the Person of the Year was “You”
Not having watched or being interested in the show Orange is the New Black, I also can’t be sure whether this person is getting attention because of acting skill and just happens to be transgender or is getting attention primarily because of being a transgender actor. I guess it’s a start either way though.
P.S. I co-sign with angelpalm about how Ms. Cox looks more womanly than Wendy Williams. Not that Ms. Williams sets a high bar there though.
