Geena Rocero, a transgender model, appeared on “CBS Mornings” to discuss a new memoir titled “Horse Barbie” which described life in the U.S. as a trans person “nightmarish.”
Rocero’s memoir tracks the Filipino model’s life as a transgender model in the Philippines to immigrating to the United States and passing as a “cisgender” woman. Rocero officially came out a transgender woman in 2014 through a viral TED talk called “Why I Must Come Out,” which reached over 3.6 million views.
Host Tony Dokoupil questioned Rocero on “visibility” since the memoir described U.S. life as “nightmarish” while Rocero has received constant support.
“I actually want to talk about the visibility, right, because so much has changed culturally in America. Your book is out, you’ve got a major publisher, you’ve got a TED Talk that went viral, right? People know you, and yet you also describe the situation here in the U.S. for trans people as nightmarish. Talk about that dichotomy, those two worlds,” Dokoupil asked.
Transgender ideology has been spotlighted in the media recently after major corporations and brands started advocating for promoting LGBTQ ideas in their products. Fox News uncovered on Friday that the Target Corporation partnered with a K-12 education group to promote in-school gender transitions for children without parental involvement.
