For that last person, both of those things are extremely insulting to ask transgender people. Birth names & surgeries are no one's business but who they decide to share that with. You wouldn't go up to a cisgender person and ask them about anything concerning their genitals and transgender people deserve the same respect.
raebaeb, .
do you know when/what age Laverne had her trans surgery and what name she was given at birth?

neither of those things are any of your business and I don’t know what “the trans surgery” is

the trans surgery is when we get our bionics put in to well and truly take over the earth and it is top secret when it is performed. never ask about this surgery.

She might be the first-ever openly transgendered Emmy nominee in history, but Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox has her mind set on achieving even bigger goals.

I apologize for this, I am seeing a lot of comments similar to this one. It was never my intention to mislead anyone, I had originally written only “because you were born a boy” but that seemed like she was just trying to be mean out of nowhere, I meant for the blah blah blah to mean that she was speaking and said that, I should have just used “ because you were born a boy”

Again, I am really sorry and I will edit the post

Laverne Cox corrects Gayle King on CBS

Did she really say “Blah blah blah” though?  Freaking terrible.

How is it terrible? Because she right? Gender is not “imposed on you” he even said himself he was born male, lemme break something down for you fools on tumblr. Because a male or female gets a physical sex change, guess what they’re genetic code ya know the xx and xy we learned in biology is still the same. No matter what you do to yourself physically there’s nothing that can change that code YET. So he’s still a boy no matter how hard you want to look like the opposite gender you are still who you were originally born to be. Now go to sleep on calling someone terrible for understanding shit you all should realize by now

Please, and I mean this in the nicest possible way, 

GO FUCK YOURSELF
