Attention, Katie Couric: Here's how you treat transgender women in the media.
About two weeks after an interview aired in which "Orange is the New Black" actress Laverne Cox gracefully brushed aside Couric's invasive, genitalia-focused questions, Cox attended Elle magazine's Women in Television celebration.
You'll notice the Getty Images caption in the photo above doesn't identify her as a "transgender actress."
As fashion bloggers Tom and Lorenzo point out, it's impressive enough "we've reached the point in our culture when a mainstream celebrity and fashion site like ours can feature a celebrity transgender woman on the red carpet."
It's also impressive when a transgender woman can walk the red carpet at a female-focused event without it being an issue. And that media organizations can focus on her achievements or her dress (which, like Tom and Lorenzo, I'm not crazy about -- what's with the netting?), while making her transgender status more of an afterthought.
