How is Laverne Cox a misogynist?
She created and starred in a show called TRANSform Me, where she and two other trans women went to women’s houses and have them makeovers.
Which is pretty bad in and of itself, but the way she treated one of the women she was asked to help was so horrible that the woman locked herself in the bathroom (in tears the whole time), because cox made her take a lingerie photo shoot with a male photographer—after the woman had clearly said “I don’t feel comfortable doing this”.
Then, in one of those splice clips, Cox says “the important thing here is that she remembers she deserves this”, which would be super affirming, except she’s just made this woman lock herself in a bathroom in tears.
If you watch the episode, it’s just a huge problem. If you’d like to check it out yourself, it’s ep8, iirc.
I spent half an hour searching for a proxy server that would allow me to watch this ep and I hoped it wouldn’t be *that* bad because I quite liked Laverne for her role on OITNB. It was worse than I could’ve ever imagined. The hosts came of as a parody/caricature of what is expected from women under patriarchy. The poor girl Phaea was clearly uncomfortable and Laverne ignored it for the sake of establishing that garters and fishnets and burlesque is what really makes a woman sexy. And kind of tried to convince Phaea that she coldn’t be as good a woman as Laverne was until she embraced all that stufff? I dislike all the ‘makeover’ shows but that was really special brand of gross and unacceptable.
What I found to be super disheartening was that Phaea was super clear about her likes and dislikes and Cox ignored her point blank.
I think what did it for me was about halfway through, when Phaea came out in that gorgeous dress she’d tried on, the one that made her just light up—and then Cox pooh-pooh’d it because “you can’t wear a bra with it”.
So what? She lives with the dude, presumably he’s seen her boobs. It was just so petty. She’s happy. She looked like a total smokeshow. Shut up and let her shine.
And then by the time she bullied her—because telling someone “this is how you’ll be beautiful and if you’re uncomfortable you’re just repressed” IS bullying—I was just ready to cry I was so upset for Phaea.
She said she was uncomfortable and Cox did it anyways and what’s worse is that we have no idea WHAT the production team said to her to get her out of that bathroom.
It’s just awful, and it was awful to watch.
