Laverne Cox apologized after facing backlash for unwittingly omitting trans men from a conversation about women's bodies.
Cox was blasted on social media after she tweeted "Woman's body. Woman's right to choose. End of story," in solidarity of opposers of Alabama’s restrictive abortion ban.
But her followers were quick to point out that trans men and non-binary people can get pregnant as well.
"I wanted to be in sisterhood with other women in that moment," she told the HuffPo. "I was also like, do we really want to have that conversation about trans men getting pregnant? Can it just not be complicated right now? Can we just keep it simple?"
"As I continued to process, I thought, for the first time, 'What if I were a transgender man?' What if I were a transgender man... and for whatever reason, I became pregnant unintentionally? If I were that trans man, I would really want to have language that incorporated and included my experience."
