SIGNED A PETITION TRYING TO HAVEADDED TO THE VICTORIA'S

WHAT SETS HER APART FROM THEOTHER FASHION MODELS IS SHE'S

WHAT HAPPENED TO POOR KATIECOURIC PALES IN COMPARISON TO

THE HIT JOB THE GENDERDYSMORPHIA MAFIA DID TO CNN'S

HE DEVOTED AN ENTIRE SEGMENT TOJAN MOCK, AND PIERS EVEN WENT

THE EXTRA MILE TO CLEARLYIDENTIFY WHO JANET USED TO BE,

WHICH CAUSED HER TO TWITTER SLAMPIERS WRITING-- I WAS NOT

FORMERLY A MAN.

PLEASE STOP SENSATIONALIZING MYLIFE.

AND@PIERSMORGANLIVE GET IT THEBLEEP TOGETHER.

THE TRANSGENDER COMMUNITY.

I WANT YOU TO EXPLAIN WHY I HADTO GO THROUGH THIS.

UNDERSTAND WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BERIDICULED AND ABUSED.

( LAUGHTER )I MEAN, THEY SAID MEAN THINGS

ABOUT HIM ON TWITTER, AND WHAT'SPIERS MORGAN SUPPOSED TO DO--

NOT SPEND 12 HOURS READING ABOUTHIMSELF?

( LAUGHTER )( APPLAUSE )

THE POINT IS--( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

THE POINT IS THAT TRANSGENDEREDCOMMUNITY ARE NEVER SATISFIED.

APPARENTLY, IT'S NOT ENOUGH TOTREAT THEM LIKE WOMEN.
