Glad I’m not the only trans person who felt this way. However (as you may already know), Simmons recently lost the lawsuit. The judge’s reasoning: “This court finds that because courts have long held that a misidentification of certain immutable characteristics do not naturally tend to injure one’s reputation, even if there is sizeable portion of the population who hold prejudices against those characteristics, misidentification of a person as transgender is not actionable defamation absent special damages.”
