laverne cox

Actor Laverne Cox walked the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards over the weekend. The crowd gasped as Cox showed off his lanky legs in a crimson Prabal Gurung gown.

It's obvious Cox, who was born Roderick Laverne Cox, is bleaching his skin. It's sad enough when black women bleach, but when a black man bleaches his skin, it's even sadder.

The 31-year-old Alabama native, who suffers from gender dysphoria, shared a SAG Award for a category called "Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series" for his role on the Netflix web series Orange Is The New Black.

In other words, SAG gave the entire cast trophies.

Gender dysphoria is defined as a psychological condition that causes significant distress in people who believe they were born the wrong sex.

    Well.. idk.. she did go from Kelly Rowland to Beyonce though Lol.. aint no amount of lighting in the galaxy

  • nucynu25

    Those legs are man legs ....

  • Buttercup

    Sir, Angelina looked equally as silly with that leg. Did you not learn anything?

  • Tammie Reed

    Hmm, it could just be a filter, who knows!

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I don't know about bleaching but I know Laverne got some big foots. Lawd.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I was about to say this. Women's calves don't even look like that.

  • Too Many Colors

    Fugg bleaching. I want him to get bigger shoes. Lets examine the REAL issues here.

  • nucynu25

    Not @ all...legs look hard as a rock

  • Buttercup

    Poor Lil Butter was so confused by the cashier at The Corner Bakery Saturday morning. He wore makeup, long hair, nails, boobies, etc. but still looked rather masculine. He asked Lil Butter if he wanted something, and Lil Butter answered, "Yes sir. I mean ma'am. I...errrr....*walks off*"

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Feet so big they're not even try to hold on... toes are a shoe extension.

  • Buttercup

    LMBO. Listen, he knows they only went up to a size 11, but he absolutely HAD to have them since they were perfect for his ensemble. Maybe he can ask EJ where he buys his booties.

  • nucynu25

    Wait why I scrolled back up . This nicca toes really on the carpet ...just hanging like they ain't got o where to be ..

  • Too Many Colors

    Scratchin and survivin.

  • Guess Who

    LMMFAO @ your comment and everyone's comment who commented to your comment.

    LMMMMMMMMMMMMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAO.

  • nucynu25

    SurfboardING on the carpet .

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    LOL!!!! Awww, Lil Butter. That would confuse us grown folks too!

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Out of the mouths of babes. See even Lil Butter was confused.

  • Too Many Colors

    Damn toes got carpet burn. I am unable to can, therefore I cannot.

  • JJ

    Wait so her middle name from birth was Laverne???... Her parents sat down and said let's give our SON the middle name of a middle aged black woman from Augusta? Hmmm...No wonder she felt different...

  • MissHarlem

    Get them manly track legs up outta here. Cmon son ??

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Why your comment got me singing, Scrub the ground, scrub the ground! #90sratchetmusic

  • nucynu25

    Toes sweating all on them ppl nice carpet ... from this I hve concluded he has no home training

  • MissHarlem

    Not good times ?? them chits is rough times

  • MissHarlem

    Skin got burnt off

  • Saharabutnotdry

    His wigs are better than BeYawnce.
    That's all.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    You know the bottom of those boogers are hard and rough as fawk.

  • That’s Interesting

    He always thinks he looks SO GOOD in those tired, old-fashioned dresses. Wanting to BLEACH your skin is also a sign of mental illness.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    It's clear he tries to copy her hairstyles

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I'm offended that so many women are ok with a man dressing up and living his life as a woman. What happen to women rights or stolen identity? Bcuz a man calling himself a transgender woman is just that, identity theft of that of a real woman but oh well forget women rights, bcuz nobody is caring to see the big picture here.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    That's what I was stuck on

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol

  • kco0l;s ChocolateBox

    La Verne still looks like a man to me. No matter what he chooses to do with his skin,hair & lanky body. But I give credit for the courage..Real women still need to be worried. U are becoming extinct more & more each year. This is what men are preferring over U..

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Bwhahaha ??????

  • nucynu25

    Girll lol

  • Buttercup

    Do not engage. Do not engage. Fugg it....How is his dressing as a woman impeding on your rights? How is it stopping you from living and achieving your goals?

  • Saharabutnotdry

    A woman to me is one who was born with a vagina , they can call themselves anything they desire , to me it's a man with a dress on .
    They don't know women's struggle so no!

  • Yo sister in law baby cousin t

    Out of all the things wrong with this picture that was taken with cameras that flash....Lighter skin is the issue. You know thats a dude up there right? He looks like he will kick the dog piss out of somebody tho.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I'm so mad I scrolled back up lol his feet definitely not made for those shoes

  • MissHarlem

    It's so damn distracting and yet he thinks he's doing it ??

  • Buttercup

    Your handle though

  • JJ

    LAWDDD I woulda been just as confused. Now you have to teach kids about Sirs, Ma'ams, and the avoid gender specific pronouns because you have no clue if it's a woman that was a man, a man that was a woman, a woman that just looks like a man, a man that just looks like a woman or what.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Positive comment...ok...I really do love that dress he's wearing.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Absolutely

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I agree with U on that! But it just bothers me that they are making transgender women as if they are real woman to say that there is no need for us. But I guess I should look at it the way u look at it and say whatever
    :-)

  • nucynu25

    Where 25 @ ? This his type right here

  • Buttercup

    I think I hear someone calling you

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Roderick still has his penis. I'd bet money.

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Exactly!

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Trust me it has no impact on or over my life however like I said, I DO NOT like U or anyone else thinking its ok for a man to call himself a woman bcuz no matter how much he cut and tuck or makeup himself, he will never be a real woman. Ok now bye!

  • 1/8

    A few months ago, I tweeted a black, female reporter regarding her weird, colored contacts. She's a beautiful woman, but her fake green eyes made her look like an alien and her appearance was distracting.

    When the reporter told me to mind my own business, I sent a tweet to her station manager. Needless to say, the reporter no longer wears colored contacts on the air.

    Personally, I don't understand black people's obsession with impersonating European standards of beauty.

  • nucynu25

    Calling me ??? O never mind :(

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Can you blame HER? With all the anti Blackness presented in our society...Neo Black 'celebs' clamoring to drop the African from their American. Pseudo celebrity bloggers endorsing hate mongers...Yeah, I'd probably be bleaching too?? It's not a daddy role model he may have been missing, it's a strong Black daddy that may/may not have influenced HER positively??

    LMAO! Are you kidding?! Why would that confused, self-hating man be my type?

  • Saharabutnotdry

    You are bored!

  • Buttercup

    Ooooooh, so you shyt what other folks eat. Got it. #RebelWithoutACause

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Go home and drink that wine Butter! ???

  • Yo sister in law baby cousin t

    Ha, just explaining the connection to yall

  • nucynu25

    Bingo , sounds like a match

  • Buttercup

    My manager hasn't left yet. I'm interviewing for another position this week, so I have to make sure to act at least half-way right.

  • ShortyDuwop

    ok

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    I wonder if that's bleached? Genitals tend to be darker. I'd imagine the balls need super strength? My inner thighs would probably reject bleach altogether?? Oh wellz, my Black, is beautiful?? including my thighs?? lumps, tracks, varicose, wounds n all??

  • 1/8

    I'm not confused about who or what I am. Maybe you're projecting. ?

    I know this dude does not see a women when he looks into the mirror.

    I guess it's like Derrick J- built like a linebacker but he thinks he's Twiggy---and those poor heels he's always wearing.

    If you listen closely you can hear his shoes singing Negro spirituals.

  • 1/8

    Her appearance was distracting. I couldn't focus on the report with staring at her contact lenses. When a reporter is doing something that detracts from the story, the behavior has to be corrected.

  • 1/8

    I'm glad you agree.

    Personally, I don't understand black people's obsession with impersonating European standards of beauty.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    Research has been done. Google is a friend to all boo.

    But NO, you would rather make a spectacle about it by Tweeting her, her manager....hell did you Tweet her mama 'nem?

    SO much information out in the world, yet you still continue to choose ignorance.

  • Too Many Colors

    I cant stop laughing. Jesus.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He buys his shoes at the same online store Nene does--Hooves Are Us--we carry dress shoes and sh!t in sizes up to 15EEE.

  • NeverSurprised

    All the makeup and extensions and designer dresses in the world will never make a STRAIGHT man prefer pen!s over v@g. The only men who prefer this MAN over a woman are other gay men, which I'm fine with.

  • Too Many Colors

    When a reporter is doing something that detracts from the story, the behavior has to be corrected.

  • Paige

    Everytime I see this Queen I feel like I need to take 30 showers. This trans gender/vesdite/cross dresser etc makes me nauseous. And people celebrate this psycho/unstable/crazy/abnormal behavior. Disgusting.

  • 1/8

    She no longer wears those ridiculous contacts on the air. Mission accomplished.

    Besides, I freed her up to be herself! ?

  • NeverSurprised

    Mr. Cox with his man hands, man hairline and muscle-man legs is both sad and hilarious.

  • Too Many Colors

    How do you know...and this is a REAL QUESTION...that was NOT her REAL eye color? And now she wears BROWN or XXX color due to the constant questions of the likes of folks like YOU? Reason I ask this, my ex bf. A dark skinned dude. Who has REALLY light colored eyes. Said he gets ALL THE time questioned. And has SAID at TIMES he has thought about just wearing contacts to CONFORM when he was younger.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    As in a promotion? Go Butter! ??

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    BC: He wore makeup, long hair, nails, boobies, etc. but still looked rather masculine.

    Did he have a mustache or something?

    There was a in my gym around Christmas and he had a beard, make up and longggg eyelashes.

    I know it's rude to stare but I was like ok what is this.
    It wasn't as bad as the skinny black chick that I was never able to identify. She caught me looking and laughed. Even she understood.

    "Yes sir. I mean ma'am. I...errrr....*walks off*"

    LB was like fugg this ish I'm tired of guessing.
    *deuces*

  • kco0l;s ChocolateBox

    Have u seen Sidney Starr's Dm messages on Instagram? I beg to differ..

  • Auditor

    True...my relatives have light eyes and dark.

  • Buttercup

    Did he have a mustache or something?
    =========
    Just hair bumps, was about 6'3", and had a strong face. I didn't think Lil Butter would notice, but clearly I was wrong.

  • Oh Tommie

    NOT true...You need to get out more

  • Fendi

    Laverne Cox is also tucking.

  • imright

    Puffy is the 1 who gave Laverne his "break" ? blame him

  • Too Many Colors

    Laverne think she is puttin bishes DEAD out the GAME in that pic. Probably saying stuff like ummm hmmm chile I SERVED THEM. Nigga. Nigga. NO you didnt. You served them rough feet in some shoes 3 sizes too small and them big ass calves that look like they belong to MAN.

  • stav

    Why would it be worse for a man? It's horrible when anyone is doing it , in hopes of society being more accepting of lighter skin. Also that pose , with his leg bent, looks very awkward. He wants to be a girl(which of course he will never be) , at least get the pose right.

  • nucynu25

    He learned that pose from the trans Khloe K , thst ho always posing with that tired ass leg out

  • 1/8

    I can tell the difference between natural eye color and colored contacts. In addition to being an odd shade of green, the reporter's contacts were always crooked and her permanently undilated pupils weren't aligned. She looked like Eddie Murphy in Vampire in Brooklyn!

  • 1/8

    I'm a viewer and apparently, my opinions count, because she no longer wears those hideous contact lenses.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Just hair bumps, was about 6'3", and had a strong face.

    Ha,ha,ha!!!

    Yeah it kills me that some of these men still have strong facial features (big nose,Cro-Magnon browbone--Cam Newton) and still think they can pass.

    I'm like who the hell do you think you're fooling.

  • 1/8

    Oh, and it doesn't hurt if the station manager follows you on Twitter. ?

  • stav

    A mess ! He copies the most tired chick(s) on the planet.

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Ummmm, they do belong to a man... lololol!!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I got nothing for Rod ....

  • NeverSurprised

    I get out plenty, thanks, and I fully stand by my position. Of course men are attracted to unclockables like Sidney Star. Men are visual beings and they are merely looking at the exterior. HOWEVER, at the moment of intimacy, a STRAIGHT man who is met with a big ole pen!s, when everything else has appeared to be female, would be disgusted. And of course there are men who want Siudney even AFTER they know he is a man, but they are merely living an outwardly straight life. No matter how many girlfriends or wives or babies they have, if they ultimately want a human creature with a pen!s, it is because they are actually on the DL. As evidence, I present Mr. Yusaf Mack as exhibits Athrough Z.

  • Smith Jane

    How can you tell if a contact is crooked? Lmao smh. I can't believe you went to a station manager over a reporters choice to wear colored contacts lmao smh #teamTOOdamnMuch

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    ??

  • Smith Jane

    Tell her! These chicks are in de-damn-nial! You keep thinking that men "prefer" the drama that comes from "real women" - the "oops" pregnancies, child support extortion, and the hormonal mood swings. Y'all gon learn. Men always want what they can't have or what society tells them they can't have.

  • 1/8

    Her pupils weren't aligned.

  • Smith Jane

    I'm pretty sure they identify as t-girls or transgendered.

    Would you like to discuss why you're a woman with multiple logins pretending to be a white gay male running around antagonizing people with you racist psychotic rhetoric?

  • ViolettaBliss

    He's also running around with with a wig on, dresses, makeup and boy body parts and calling himself Laverne so why would the bleaching be a surprise?

  • NeverSurprised

    Mr. Cox must have a GIGANTIC head, because his awful wigs always sit WAAAAAAYYYY up on the top of his head when he has the fake part in the front. It's as if he has a ton of hair piled up underneath, propping it up higher, but my guess is he just has a big ole man-head. Too bad there isn't a surgery to fix THAT (or the man feet, or man hands, or man legs), or man jaw). Can't we just stop the charade, please?

  • milkiecat

    Feminists are quicker to stand up for these mentally ill nutjobs than natural born Black women! Look up misogynoir and how WoC in the feminist movement have been complaining about its followers devoting effort to the wrong ish.

    go ape about "misgendering" these LaVerne types.

    "Lack of punctuation" eh? Hahaha. You are really, really dumb! "Its" is the possessive. "It's" is a contraction of "it is."
